Sun Dali (September 2017)

Solar sundial clock 04

I remembered a friend a few weeks ago, that I haven’t been in contact with for a long time. These days, it seems tough to be out of contact with a friend, what with social media, but some folks don’t use Twitter or Facebook. I don’t have her newest e-mail address and her phone number changes quite a bit.

I used to make mix tapes for her a long time ago, which she always enjoyed. I last made a mix for her ten years ago – a double-CD set. I thought I’d write a letter and send another one along, for old times’ sake (and she’s probably bored of the older ones by now). I really enjoyed making this one, so I decided I’d share it here.

It’s got some psychedelic space rock, indie rock, psychedelic folk, dark ambient and even a 1980s sing-along anthem! Plus, the usual film and teevee dialogue. Click on the link to listen and download.

The Kaleidophonic Stroboscope: Sun Dali (September 2017)

Tune In, Turn On, Freak Out…

The next episode of The Stroboscope is a mix I created about three years ago and posted to Mixcloud. I meant to post a regular series on Mixcloud, but it didn’t happen. Unfortunately, I deleted the master file, thinking I’d be able to download it back from Mixcloud if I needed it. That’s not the case, so I’ve got to leave it there for the time being. It’s O.K., though, you can play it as many times as you like – you just can’t download it, which is a shame. I promise you’ll be able to download the next one. I’m still working on it, but I hope to have it ready in a few weeks. This one’s a bit short – about 60 minutes long, but it’s a good’un. A mix of psychedelia, jazz and dark ambient, with some spoken word bits sprinkled in for your entertainment. Hope you enjoy it!
