Tonight's show was a collage of various things. Thanks again to C.P. McDill and Webbed Hand Records. Akashic Crow's Nest's "Rain 2" and Djinnestan's "Purr" both made a big splash in the chatroom for their hypnotic qualities.
Fun show tonight. Played mostly stuff by C.P. Mcdill who was kind enough to allow me to mix his music. C.P. McDill is the mastermind behind Webbed Hand Records and has several projects/names he goes under. Among them: Saluki Regicide, Djinnestan, Drone Wallah, Tree Helicopter, and Akashic Crow's Nest. Webbed Hand Records gets a lot of play on Sadayatana. Very happy to do a show featuring so much of C.P. McDill's music.
Got to play a few other things. A couple tracks from the new The Implicit Order EP "For Your Eyes Only", and a couple from the new release up on Vuzh Music, Auzel's "Old", and a couple tracks from the new Treetrunk Netlabel release where Seetyca remixes Mystified's Trombone drone music. All very nice.
While looking around I rediscovered the music of Doc & Lena Selyanina, who get the honor of longest track played on tonight's show. "Bell Meditation" from their release "Cosmic Lullabies". Deep ambient at it's best.
Found some other field recordings while sniffing around at the Musictrade netlabel. Which I was able to put to good use. Waiter! More phonography! Seriously.
Mixed together tracks from Bortom Reparation, Vessel 1 through 5. Basically you're always hearing at least 2 of these tracks at the same time. The Bortom Reparation Vessel Sadayatana distended mix, hehe.
Lucky to find these particularly crisp binaural field recordings by Derren Lee Poole. Wow. I could do a whole show inspired by the one titled "Blackburn Cathedral". Oh wait, maybe I just did. Reminiscent of NordBeck's release "78 rpm" featured in Sadayatana "Extreme High Heels". Need more sounds like this. Have any?
Mystified's album, the third in his trilogy "derived entirely from trombone sounds" marks the 200th release at Webbed Hand Records. Many more to come I hope --Webbed Hand Records gets a lot of play here.
Several tracks by "The Implicit Order". I am particularly taken with the recent release at Vuzh Music: The Implicit Order "They Live in the Sky". As it says: "Originally released into the hometaper cassette network in 1997 in a limited edition of 35..." Very nice. I couldn't help but play the whole thing.
John Tocher surveys the free music landscape for new and old releases encompassing the realms of avant garde, experimental, electronic, musique concréte, industrial, dada-ist music. A transplant from the Los Angeles area, he now makes his home in southeast Texas near the border with Louisiana --deep in swamp country, where the ambiance is enhanced by cicadas and the occasional hurricane.
