A mixture of martial industrial and religious and devotional musics, chant, drone etc. Themes of warfare and the transitory nature of existence run throughout.

Thanks again to C.P. McDill, the mastermind behind Webbed Hand Records for another great 78 to close the show.

This book is cheerfully dedicated to those greatest and most heroic of all human endeavors, WAR and WARFARE; may they never cease to give us the pleasure, excitement and adrenal stimulation that we need, or provide us with the heroes, the presidents and the leaders, the monuments and museums which we erect to them in the name of PEACE.

Review at Sadayatana #72

Some tracks from the new Joe Frawley: 13 Houses and The Mermaid . Very groovy as usual.

Extensive use was make of the soundtracks of videos by Lifeloop and friends. At first I was just going to play this material as I find it rather compelling but then I discovered it's a type of electro-acoustic music called "Salon Bruit". I'll have to look into this more later but whatever it is, it made up a substantial part of the show. I like it.

New Mystified was featured as well. Gotta love those Mystified drones. One track sounded like a trip to Tibet. I hear he got himself a Jiggs pBone --I don't know either, but it sounds cool. Very cool.

Also new music from Subterrestrial, Nux Vomica and Gimu. It was a fun show. A bit of a different sound. Some of it is low-fi and low volume. It sounds like you're listening from another room. The effect is good though.

It was true that as one watched life in its curious crucible of pain and pleasure, one could not wear over one's face a mask of glass, nor keep the sulphurous fumes from troubling the brain and making the imagination turbid with monstrous fancies and misshapen dreams. There were poisons so subtle that to know their properties one had to sicken of them. There were maladies so strange that one had to pass through them if one sought to understand their nature.

- Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray (1890)

Review at Sadayatana #71

The show starts with another mashup of Mystified's music. An old 78 that was more groovy noise than anything else.

The show featured a live set from Joel Sutton in his guise as Crystal Dreams, thank you Joel for a dark ambient set.

New Zreen Toyz, The Implicit Order and the music of Vladimir Hirsch were both featured to good effect. A fun show that closed with another 78 personally recorded for Sadayatana by CP McDill. Thank you CP McDill!

This one reflects my mood at the time. Dark, grim, isolated. A lot of snow type sounds. Like you're lost in the tundra or something. My grim mood turned into your listening pleasure. I think...

I dreamt four nights ago of clock hands descending from the universe like rain, of the moon as a green eye, of mirrors and insects, of a love that never withdrew. It was not the feeling of completeness that I so needed, but the feeling of not being empty.

Review at Sadayatana #69

Mostly this show is about automated random whispers over drones and stretched out classical music. Much inspiration is taken from the music of György Ligeti. It works fairly well and I enjoy result. I think you will too.

Whispers provided by Ayn Morgan reading (whispering) from Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's "The Little Prince", Charles Baudelaire's "Flowers of Evil" and T.S. Eliot's "The Wasteland". Thank you Ayn.

The boast of heraldry, the pomp of power,
And all that beauty, all that wealth e'er gave,
Awaits alike the inevitable hour.
The paths of glory lead but to the grave.
