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)
