[aired] Spin Dizzy Fall Goes The Sky

My track There Goes The Sky (freemusicarchive | bandcamp | soundcloud) goes on a Creative Commons adventure with a group of instagrammers and pro photographers in New South Wales, Australia, testing the Panasonic Lumix GX8. Beautiful people, dream-state locations, fog-shrouded wild horses and frenzied pelicans make this vid quadruple-xclnt.

Spin Dizzy Fall is 24yr old Sydney blogger, Emma Lucey. “Step into my …

[remix.reflector] Noncompliance by Tuonela

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

Noncompliance [disquiet0190-missedconnections]

I hadn’t listened to any of last week’s Junto works,

[a few words on] Tuonela: Blue Mountain Ice Reflections

Tuonela (soundcloud, bandcamp), a sound artist and self-described “primitive musician” out of Katoomba, Australia makes sounds using “very basic software.” With no synthesizers and “no idea how Ableton works,” he produces and processes wonderful sounds, and for someone so prolific, his work still exhibits no sameness, jumping across modes and always somehow making the “epic” look, well, effortless.

Bassling + Lee Rosevere + Nofi: Riding High Waves (remix of “riding waves”)

This rounded-out full-on quartet performance creates unexpected harmonic convergences and becomes a whole (and real) band – thankfully without van politics, ego mastications and “yellow-M&Ms-only” rider demands.

[a few words on] Bassling’s Visceral Frequencies



Australian multi-instrumentalist Bassling (née,Jason Richardson) describes himself as “exploring the nether regions of the frequency spectrum and delighting in their visceral response.” Well, his nether regions are our visceral pleasure, too. Through the years, he’s cast a wide and adroit musical net, moving with ease from slash-and-burn low-frequency smolder, to anti-slash-and-burn environmental activist field recordings, to flash-and-turn dance mixes. …

Bassling: Unmistakable Release (remix of riding waves)

Australian multi-instrumentalist Bassling layered a haunting bass line and Rust Cohle’s (Matthew McConaughey) equally chilling rumination on death from True Detective over my track riding waves [disquiet0066-nonofi].

I added a favourite monologue from True Detective where Rusty Cohle ruminates on death. My partner immediately called out that it worked, so I left it in.

Despite the somber nature of the 132nd junto project
