Review at Sadayatana #78

Well... another disastrous show. I guess I spilled water on the keyboard or something. First a whole lot of files I had downloaded were erased --right before my eyes! Then the computer locked up just before the end. The times and track titles were lost and I had to reconstruct the playlist below by hand. Another Frankenstein podcast... some assembly required.

Don't take any of this as an indication that it won't be fun to listen to. It is! Trust me... I trust you.

The show opens with a mashup of a numbers station recording by Sealord and Life's Darker Than Death: "Silence". Then new from Impulsive Habitat, Jan Kees-Helms: "Barcelona".

Several tracks from the new Brownian Motion contact microphone compilation are featured: "Coupe Of Negation Theorem As Contact Trickery". And again, several tracks from The Chestnut Tree compilation are featured. Really great stuff.

The show closes with another 78 digitized for your listening pleasure by C.P. Mcdill, the outside music mogul behind Webbed Hand Records.

For Mercer everything is easy, he thought, because Mercer accepts everything. Nothing is alien to him. But what I've done, he thought; that's become alien to me. In fact everything has become unnatural; I've become an unnatural self.

Show starts with a mashup of Public Domain's "Test Broadcast, Programme 2" and Another Neglected Hobby's "Voltage". I had played Voltage earlier in the week and was impressed enough for another go.

Several tracks were played/mixed from The Chestnut Tree compilation. I've been listening to this in the car now for over a week. It will be a while yet before I'm through --it is almost six hours of music. Very nice, Ayn Morgan of The Chestnut Tree has been working hard on it for quite a while.

Thank you to all the artists who contributed tracks. Featured one this show were tracks from: downercow, (o)thers, Kristus Kut, Dan Minoza and Shane Morris, Mama Baer Hjuler, Shane Morris and Pixyblink, Kirill Platonkin, Altocumulus, and Zreen Toyz. Go download now. You will thank me. Your mother will thank me.

Tracks from C. Reider's vuhz music label are featured, Jeff Sampson's "Swarm" and The Euphoric Hum: Flow. I really like this release by Deer: "Deer are three women with laptops and tape decks." So I play a lot of it.

Other music worth noting: deafness: "32 teeth", this got a oooh creepy or something in chat, the "Heathen Harvest Samhain Sampler 2011", Christian Galarreta: "Raw field recordings I : Habitacion en Buenos Aires (2011)", and "By Force, The Snoring Oceans" (self titled).

The show closes with another 78 digitized by C.P. McDill, the mastermind behind the Webbed Hand Records label, The Mills Brothers: Paper Doll. Thanks again C.P. McDill.

As if the blind rage had washed me clean, rid me of hope; for the first time, in that night alive with signs and stars, I opened myself to the gentle indifference of the world.

Review at Sadayatana #75

Tonight's show was mostly a mix of music released last week by Edu Comelles in his guise as Mensa and a various field recordings by... me. I really like the music of Edu Comelles and his label I think you will too.

New from Impulsive Habitat: David Velez's "Forma y percepción".

A few more tracks from the new release at Seetyca & Etheocles Stevens: "Sulphur VI".

Also new from Webbed Hand Records, tracks from the new Ice Guild Kaiser "The Past Is Foreign, and from Materia Confusa's "".

Also new music from Mystified. He took a track I played at the end of Sadayatana show #37 "Night Owl Theater, a 78 of the French "Garde Républicaine" Band playing "The Star Spangled Banner." and droned it out somehow. It totally rocks.

When your dreams are of some world that never was or of some world that never will be and you are happy again then you will have given up. Do you understand? And you cant give up.

Review at Sadayatana #74

Unreleased track from Dan Miñoza and The Implicit Order: "Eyes Catch Fire". Hey I think that name is inspired by Buddhist on Fire...

New from Webbed Hand Records, The title track from: "Eta Carinae – Rest".

A couple new releases from Treetrunk Records: Gutterhulk and Conure.

Tracks with serial killer samples by Deafness: "Victim". Sorry about that. I like them though. Jeffrey Dahmer talking to someone about creationism. Hard to beat. But also kind of sick too.

New release from Otium by Seetyca & Etheocles Stevens: Sulphur VI.

Jack (audio subsystem) crashed just as the show was ending. I edited it together as best I could. The 78 courtesy of C.P. McDill again, this time John McCormack's "Mother Machree". Thank you.

While fame impedes and constricts, obscurity wraps about a man like a mist; obscurity is dark, ample, and free; obscurity lets the mind take its way unimpeded. Over the obscure man is poured the merciful suffusion of darkness. None knows where he goes or comes. He may seek the truth and speak it; he alone is free; he alone is truthful, he alone is at peace.

- Virginia Woolf, Orlando: A Biography (1928)
