I started off this broadcast with Mystified’s advance for “Fatal Planet,” a disc inspired by the original soundtrack for “Forbidden Planet,” both in concept and construction. It’s some good stuff, especially for those familiar with the original. Oddly enough, I was reminded a bit of a new disc of previously unreleased material from Annea Lockwood– this being the “Floating World” portion of “Thousand Year Dreaming/Floating World,” currently available on Pogus Productions. Both Lockwood’s work and Mystified’s set up ‘mirrors’ of a sort– Mystified’s is giving us a new look at the older work by the Barrons’, and Lockwood’s is a collection of places; set in amber, as it were. It was definitely interesting to contrast these two works, and they flowed together quite well.
I am now playing from the Last Visible Dog Records release “Somethings #1,” compiled by Ilya Monosov. I have been listening to a lot of quiet, often field-sourced recordings lately, and I wanted to hear Nick Castro’s contributions this morning– however, this album is so well-constructed that I ended up letting it roll– Masayoshi Urabe and Sarah Peebles got to come along for the ride; I hope you’re enjoying it as well!
Oops! I had some visitors stop in, which naturally makes it a bit difficult to liveblog. I played a lot of good stuff, though, as you can see in the playlist. If you’re mad at me, remember that I’ll be back next week and we can try it again.
I almost forgot to mention: I’ll be at Lemp Arts tonight for the Zelienople/Mike Tamburo show. If you see me, be sure to introduce yourself!
