Review at Sadayatana #57

Dark drones with spoken word samples and shortwave buzzes, snaps and snarls.

Music from Luciftias, The Ghost Between The Strings, Palancar, Stephen Philips, and Argedco Dosig g Manin.

Samples from a Rod Serling interview and from Metatheseus' "The Labyrinth of Music Theory" podcast. Also numbers stations and "shortwave espionage broadcasts" recorded by Sealord.

Stormy weather by Nata and much wailing and gnashing of teeth from Mateusz Jędrzejczak's project "Darkness And Silence".

Much cool stuff from the apparently defunct netlabel This Plague Of Dreaming. Including 900piesek, To Repel Ghosts, and The Threshold People. Love that label. Sorry it no longer seems to be running. At least the music lives on. I suppose some day the same will be said of Sadayatana. Or at least it will live on.

Some tracks include brainwave synchronization techniques. If you find yourself with a sudden craving for popcorn or wing tip shoes this might be why.

That life had been one without excitement, with no adventure. It had been too safe. All the elements that made it up were right there before his eyes, and nothing new could ever be expected. It was like, he had once thought, a little plastic boat that would sail on forever, without incident, until it finally sank, which would be a secret relief to all.

- Philip K. Dick, A Scanner Darkly
