Review at Sadayatana #64

Thanks to C.P. McDill for recording some of his 78s especially for Sadayatana. You'll hear one at the end of this show. C.P. McDill says:

"Recorded off a totally acoustic wind-up gramophone... a portable Phonola from the 30s, popular with picnickers and soldiers. in good shape..."

"I used to take it to Prospect Park... someone asked me to turn it down. I said 'it only has one volume: ON'..."

And to all the artists who release their music with a creative commons license: without you there is no Sadayatana. Thank you.

As the night wind blows, the boughs move to and fro. The rustling, the magic rustling that brings on the dark dream.

Review at Sadayatana #63

At some point after moving out to Houston I heard about a genre of music called "Chopped and Screwed". I always try to burrow into whatever local scene exists. If there is not support for the local scene there is no music scene....

Ya anyway, looking forward to my first taste of "Chopped and Screwed", when I finally heard some I was sorely disappointed. It's music that sounds like you're overdosing on cough medicine ya see. What the hell is the crap? [I asked myself.]

Recently we had some joking discussion in the irc chat room during one of the shows at "what exactly is Chopped and Screwed music?" I thought well, I can maybe find some that is ambient enough to use in the show. The result is as you will hear. This is kind of related to the Witch House show I did a while back: Another Room.

Experimental. A little weird. Don't take any of this as a suggestion that it's ok to abuse cough medicine. It's not.

Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically. The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. We've got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen.

After the commonplaces of everyday life, with their muffled dramas, all my organic expertise for dealing with physical injury had long been blunted or forgotten. The crash was the only real experience I had been through for years.

Review at Sadayatana #61

Drones mixed with almost live police and emergency service scanner feeds leading up to the New Years Eve celebration.

The scanner feeds were from major cities around the U.S.A., including Chicago, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, New York and Reno.

Thank you to radio reference for providing the scanner feeds.

This show dedicated to law enforcement, fire and emergency service people everywhere.

And all that remained before us was an empty, glowing window, a rectangular hole piercing the opaque night, showing our aching eyes a world composed of lightning and dawn.
