Review at Sadayatana #47

This was a fun show. One of my best ones I think. Straight dark ambient with some noise and soundscapes.

Couple tracks from Mystified's as yet unreleased "Drifting". Actually it was released in 2007 for sale on recycled cassettes, but coming out again soon on Buddhist on Fire as CC music.

Backyard Ghost again. Played these tracks on "Calm, Happy Whispers", and listening to it later, it felt like I needed a seatbelt. Backyard Ghost rocks (in an ambient way of course...)

Played some music by Argentinian noise artist Playing With Nuns. The listener count on seemed to drop off as I did so. Maybe they thought it was technical difficulties with the stream. Their loss. So awesome.

Some excerpts from Luis Antero's fantastic field recordings. What a great ear he has. Good gear too apparently.

Snuck in some tracks from The Implicit Order. More of his newer releases later. So good this guy's music. Great samples.

Also tracks from Fabio Keiner's recent release "Departure". On the Petcord netlabel.

James Wyness: "The Bridge". Nice.

I think you will enjoy this as much as I did. I got into doing the show so much there was no voiceover until the end, but then I chopped that off as well. So it's the first podcast where there is no voiceover interruption... Happy listening.

Elfine was rescued. Henceforth, her life would be one of exquisite, sunny natural content. She would bear children and found a line of pleasant, ordinary English people who were blazing with poetry in their secret souls. All was as it should be.

Review at Sadayatana #46

One of the more experimental shows --with the occasional beat. Sort of an audio investigation of the ambient side of "witch house". According to Wikipedia Witch House "...features a fusion of techniques rooted in Swishahouse hip-hop -- sluggish tempo with skipping, stop-timed beats -- coupled with elements from genres such as noise, drone, and shoegaze."

A semi disastrous show this one. I was playing for two hours without actually being connected to the stream. The tags where being updated, so it kind of looked like I was playing but the music heard was from the automation at I discovered this by connecting and listening to the stream. Hey that's not me! So I basically started over at the midnight hour and ran till 3 am.

Some night owl listeners actually stuck around for the whole show. Night owls and listeners in Australia, Russia, etc. A late night, but the show must go on...

When I had somewhat recovered from the dazing effect of the transition from uproar to silence, my first impulse was to reopen the door which I had closed, and from the knob of which I was not conscious of having removed my hand; I felt it distinctly, still in the clasp of my fingers. My notion was to ascertain by stepping again into the storm whether I had been deprived of sight and hearing. I turned the doorknob and pulled open the door. It led into another room!

Review at Sadayatana #45

Starting with a Bach mashup by Cine Victoria & Muniagurria. It sounds like a bunch of audio gear in an old theater all playing various Bach tunes at the same time. This mixes into some Bach I stretched out myself.

An experimental track off Joe Frawley's soundcloud page. Thank you Joe. Very nice. Looking forward to the eventual release.

James Alaska and Tristan Shorr "Abisalle glick". A piece created in "a disused cinema in Erlangen, Bavaria" "...fragments of sound were taken from locally sourced vinyl, L.P.'s, cassettes and gramophone records..." So good. I had to play all 40 minutes of it. I really admire Impulsive Habitat. Very consistent high quality.

And the usual Sadayatana stuff...

Wasn't it just a storybook over which I had fallen adoze and adream? No; it was a big, ugly, antique, but convenient house, embodying a few features of a building still older, half-replaced and half-utilized, in which I had the fancy of our being almost as lost as a handful of passengers in a great drifting ship. Well, I was, strangely, at the helm!

Review at Sadayatana #44

Another mashup of one of Mystified's drone tunes. This time his soda bottle drone is mixed with an old bagpipe 78. So nice of him to let me abuse his music in this way. It's fun!

Oh man... Fabián Ramírez played live from Mexico City --in his dark ambient incarnation Obscure Visions. Later in the week I stitched in a flac recording of his set that he provided me. Maximum fidelity. Sounds great. This set will be released later on my new Netlabel Buddhist on Fire. Several releases coming, including Shane Morris: "Approaching Singularity", Seetya: "Tagundnachtgleiche", and Bunk Data & Exuviae: Subseason III. Man, I can't wait. Oh wait, I have already been listening to them. A lot.

Review at Sadayatana #43

Starting with a mashup of a new track by Mystified: Satyr's Drone. I paired it with a homemade 78 I found on I think they made it for their loved ones in the war. It's cute but also sounds like the Satyr's of Mystified's track so I went with it. Especially all the laughing.

Then we had a live (with one overdub) performance by Muied Lumens. A track he prepared specially for this show. I had listened to it a couple times in the car --but really didn't get into until I listened to it with headphones. Take my advice and do the same.

I really like the slowed down classical pieces by Alan Morse Davies. I did this myself on a show that was not podcast. With some Bach choral music. It was nice but I got some crap about it in the chatroom. So it was with trepidation that I played these. But they seemed to be loved in the chat. All is well. Enjoy.

He had come a long way to this blue lawn, and his dream must have seemed so close that he could hardly fail to grasp it. He did not know that it was already behind him, somewhere back in that vast obscurity beyond the city, where the dark fields of the republic rolled on under the night.
