synth album inspired by Philip K. Dick's seminal sci-fi
Posted Sun Jul 24, 2016 9:28 pm by Levente
New releases The new album The Dowland Shores of Philip K. Dick's Universe is inspired by Dick's novels and stories, which are spawned also cult film adaptations ranging from Blade Runner to Minority Report to Total Recall.

The album also references the music of the Renaissance English composer John Dowland, who was often fondly referred to by Ph. K Dick in his works.

Philip K. Dick (1928-1982) was an American writer, whose works, exploring philosophical, political and theological themes, have moved from a rather unique corner of 'science fiction' into mainstream (including cult film adaptations like Blade Runner and Minority Report) and into courses on literature.

In Dick's exquisitely complex, often disturbing (and disturbingly prophetic) universe there are numerous veiled or direct references to John Dowland, the English Renaissance composer.

While navigating through Dick's unique and turbulent world, these references for me were akin to encountering safe shores of humanity, of familiar and cosy reality, where one could stop for a moment among the many turbulent flows and currents.

This album is about those shores - the human, sometimes background or secondary, stories and undercurrents in Dick's ever-changing labyrinthine universe.

Among the compositions, which were inspired by these, there are also a few tributes to John Dowland - hopefully adapted to fit into the Dick-inspired musical world as Dick's references to the music of a distant past fit into his universe...

The album is out on Amazon CD, digital download from Bandcamp (with free streaming enabled on all tracks), also on iTunes, Spotify and GooglePlay.

The CD's info page, including details on the tracks, the details of Philip K. Dick works that inspired the tracks, is at: http://leventeth.wix.com/thedowlandshores

syndae - episode 354
Posted Sun Jul 24, 2016 8:00 pm by treibklang
EM News So I asked for the summer last week? Well, it just hit me a day later and now I cannot drop clothes fast enough. My, there was no reason to prove anything, you bright hot star! Ok then, if I cannot move or otherwise would leave a water trail the music cannot be to agitated. Going a bit more quiet tonight, well, mostly at least. Have a joyful time with tracks by Altus (The Sun Will Rise Tomorrow), Rik Johnson (Scars), eyes cast down (Souls Adrift, in Disrepair), A Year in the Country (The Quietened Bunker), Bernhard Wöstheinrich & Gaston Klares (Nuu-Chah-Nulth), Perceptual Defence & Syndromeda (The End of the Universe), Delicate Aparatus (Into the Rift Volume One), Mental Health Consumer (Early Spring Midnight Walks With Us), Bite (Calle Palma), and Spleen (Midnight Radio Compilation 6Cool.

Don't you move with:

Yours, Stefan

Note: We don't monetize this channel, but the ads that may appear in some videos
are added by Youtube on audio that matched licensed material.
There are no known limitations. The audio can be played with ads shown. (use AdBlock to remove them)
It is also interesting that digital fingerprints of digital tracks match analog audio from vinyl.

RIP Alan Vega
Posted Sun Jul 17, 2016 11:02 am by dronescape
EM News Alan Vega, singer of Suicide, died at the age of 78.



"With profound sadness and a stillness that only news like this can bring, we regret to inform you that the great artist and creative force, Alan Vega has passed away.

Alan passed peacefully in his sleep last night, July 16. He was 78 years of age.

Alan was not only relentlessly creative, writing music and painting until the end, he was also startlingly unique. Along with Martin Rev, in the early 1970’s, they formed the two person avant band known as Suicide. Almost immediately, their incredible and unclassifiable music went against every possible grain. Their confrontational live performances, light-years before Punk Rock, are the stuff of legend. Their first, self-titled album is one of the single most challenging and noteworthy achievements in American music.

Alan Vega was the quintessential artist on every imaginable level. His entire life was devoted to outputting what his vision commanded of him.

One of the greatest aspects of Alan Vega was his unflinching adherence to the demands of his art. He only did what he wanted. Simply put, he lived to create. After decades of constant output, the world seemed to catch up with Alan and he was acknowledged as the groundbreaking creative individual he had been from the very start.

Alan’s life is a lesson of what it is to truly live for art. The work, the incredible amount of time required, the courage to keep seeing it and the strength to bring it forth—this was Alan Vega.

Alan is survived by his amazing family, wife Liz and son Dante. His incredible body of work, spanning five decades, will be with us forever."

RIP, and thanks for some fond memories.

A blaze of sounds at:
