Review at Sadayatana #67

Show starts with a collage and looping of tracks by Universos Virtuales (fantastic!) and generally moves into drone territory and layering of samples taken from the Librivox recording of H.G. Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau".

The samples were woven into the mix via a script that selected then at random then delayed the selection and playing of the next sample by a random interval. It worked well but you can hear a sample colliding with the voice over / podcast id. Oh well, this is what experiments are for.

Excerpts were played of a tribute to Sadayatana by Luís Antero. Thank you Luís. Very nice.

Particular use was made of Graham Dunning's release "Recompiled 2010 - 2011". Fantastic stuff.

A couple tracks from the "Witch House" release by Kulam+++Barang "Albularyo Prime"

A crunchy and textured time was had by all. This show includes tracks by Backyard Ghost, Black Winds, Cdrx, C. Reider / Tarkatak, Digital Mass, Epsilon Eridani, Graham Dunning, Kulam+++Barang, Kluge, Luciftias, Luís Antero, Melophobia, M.Nomized/the Implicit Order, Morpheus, Peter Leshtchenko, Ricardo Webbens, Rigel Orionis, The Ghost Between The Strings, Universos Virtuales, Wings Of An Angel, Zreen Toyz.

Yes Vuvuzelas are heard to excess at the start of the show. Somehow it works great.

...the Law, especially among the feline Beast People, became oddly weakened about nightfall; that then the animal was at its strongest; that a spirit of adventure sprang up in them at the dusk, when they would dare things they never seemed to dream about by day.

- H.G. Wells, The Island of Dr. Moreau
