Some tracks from the new Joe Frawley release: "Curious Perspectives". Love his music. Thanks for making it Joe.

Excerpt from an unreleased track from Disturbed Earth, Shane Morris, and Kirill Platonkin: "Rolling Stock". Very cool. Play this some more when it comes out. Hopefully on Buddhist on Fire. Hehe.

Red Fog's "Memory Of The Ferrofluids" --oh man those water samples. So groovy.

Thanks to Shane Morris for providing many of the shortwave samples used.

Thanks also to Dean Richards aka Disturbed Earth for the professional show id voiceover. I will be playing it more in future. When not otherwise occupied with Disneyland, Nascar, Monster Trucks or midget wrestling.

His ears were growing sensitive to a preternatural and intolerable degree, and he had long ago stopped the cheap mantel clock whose ticking had come to seem like a thunder of artillery. At night the subtle stirring of the black city outside, the sinister scurrying of rats in the wormy partitions, and the creaking of hidden timbers in the centuried house, were enough to give him a sense of strident pandernonium. The darkness always teemed with unexplained sound -- and yet he sometimes shook with fear lest the noises he heard should subside and allow him to hear certain other fainter noises which he suspected were lurking behind them.

Review at Sadayatana #50

Played excerpts from a new release at Impulsive Habitat Netlabel: James Wyness' "The Tree". Later listening to the show I thought "man this is so good, I should have played the whole thing". Probably later I will.

Fun samples throughout the show.

He watched the clouds: dark swift horses surging up the sky. A black storm breaking out of its season! That was what love was like, he thought; love which came too late. Only no sane calm succeeded it, as when the evening fragrance or slow sunlight and warmth returned to the surprised land.

- Malcolm Lowry, Under the Volcano

Review at Sadayatana #49

This show is almost completely composed of music taken from the community audio section of Basically all the dark ambient material I could find there. Well, rather it's taken from that material. It comes to just thousands and thousands of tracks.

My favorite discovery this time was the music of Morpheus and Chaos Condensed. The show starts with a "mashup" of some of this material and other tracks are found throughout. Good stuff.

So this show is kind of a take on the state of dark ambient as seen from a non-netlabel point of view.

The Sadayatana podcast has found a new home at, it's in it's own collection now at, which is in the "Music & Arts" section of Audio.

But his heart was in a constant, turbulent riot. The most grotesque and fantastic conceits haunted him in his bed at night. A universe of ineffable gaudiness spun itself out in his brain while the clock ticked on the wash-stand and the moon soaked with wet light his tangled clothes upon the floor. Each night he added to the pattern of his fancies until drowsiness closed down upon some vivid scene with an oblivious embrace. For a while these reveries provided an outlet for his imagination; they were a satisfactory hint of the unreality of reality, a promise that the rock of the world was founded securely on a fairy's wing.

Review at Sadayatana #48

Focusing on preproduction lately. Changing the way the music is pulled together. Kind of a transitional show. A mix of old and new.

Finally got the permission thing squared away with The Implicit Order. I can play anything he puts out now. Thank you Implicit Order.

A track from the new Mystified release from Dark Winter. Love that cover.

Played a bunch of dark tracks from the DNA Production netlabel. So much good stuff there.

A few noisy tracks from Macedonian netlabel Shkart. Good stuff that. More later.

Mixed some tracks from Crypt Designers Guild. How can you go wrong with names like Lucas Darklord & Black Math?

Field recordings from various places. Among them Green Field Recordings, Wandering Ear, Loopool Field Recordings.

Thanks to Shane Morris for various shortwave samples.

What actually happens on the level of our unconscious minds when, within minutes on the same TV screen, a prime minister is assassinated, an actress makes love, an injured child is carried from a car crash? Faced with these charged events, prepackaged emotions already in place, we can only stitch together a set of emergency scenarios, just as our sleeping minds extemporize a narrative from the unrelated memories that veer through the cortical night.
