Loads of flying, fluttery harmonics and shifting undertones as these loops cycled together. Rupert Lally’s track loop is 30% right and ahornberg’s is 30% left in the mix and they’re both blended (smeared?) together by a slight (27% wet) band-pass (1500Hz) resonance filter and …Continue reading
Fantastic remix by multi-instrumentalist and sound artist Steve Burnett (Raleigh, US) of Zedkah‘s “Swells [disquiet 0189: tone layer]” with my C Swells [disquiet0189-tonelayer]. In Burnett’s hands, the combined tracks become synesthetic as his cosmologic expansion/contraction process fires all the senses at once. The forces at work here are extreme – too large and yet, also too small to comprehend, yet …Continue reading
Conjecture Of A Time is a wonderful, mysterious sound artist who has contributed to the Disquiet Junto since back in year two. This week, [he? she? them?] remixed small loops of my C-swells [disquiet0189-tonelayer] along with Olaf Wisselink’s Cascade [disquiet0189-tonelayer], adding in “whoosh” sounds to mask the loop endings. The result is a joyful noise. File under: Summer road trip asteroid rest stop …Continue reading
I’ve been graced by a Tuonela remix before, and this time around it’s another (inter)stellar reinvention. He’s put me into a Cuisinart alongside a track by the sublime German sound artist Analoc, and the results are a blippy glitchy trippy heaven.
Tuonela’s track notes:

For Disquiet Junto Project 0190: Missed Connections
I hadn’t listened to any of last week’s Junto works,
Sevenism∞ (nee Jamie Lickfold) hails from Nottingham, UK and describes his sound work as “12-string bluesy acoustic ambient psych-folk noise drone pop // random electronic ambient slowdowns.” He’s made good on that promise once again in a remix of my “C Swells [disquiet0189-tonelayer]” for his contribution to this weeks Junto challenge, a call to remix any two of last week’s submissions and layer a …Continue reading
Brilliant remix by the ever-engaging and prolific sound artist S/H/A/R/R/P/S (Jessy Kendall, founder of the letterfounder craft studio in Lewiston, ME) of my and Utrecht artist Olaf Wisselink’s respective Junto 0189 contributions. S/H/A/R/R/P/S layers dialogue snippets from 80s episodes of the soap opera Santa Barbara over a combination of both tracks for a whacked out trip suffused with mystery and suspense. Soap operas, in …Continue reading
people [now] fear loneliness
they want truth,
they feel hell.
in a place beyond time.
in the company of love,
we live outside the li|n|es.
who don’t fear dark,
we know the moon
skies full of chariots,
we taunt the sun when it fakes.
we could turn this world…
Single notes in the key of C, staggered and stacked to move through different chords. “Attack” was eliminated using a combination of my trusted E-bow fed through an EHX POG2 with its attack setting jacked all the way up for max swell. Tape Delay, Phaser, Reverb added for space travel (or ocean travel as the case may be here).
Fabien (Peekamoose Custom …Continue reading

Elena lived on Avenue X,
next to a trestle
all her life.
She dreamed of distant places
and of jumping random trains
a thousand times.
She craved a sky that let her know she was home.
An endless sky that left the stars alone
