Labyrinth Dawning Listen Ability Rating:  An interesting conversation with a film maker amid my usual smorgasborg of music.

This episode intermingles some interesting thoughts from film maker Guillermo Del Toro. He talks about insects, fantasy and reality and other cool stuff.

Musically we start with Jonas Braasch off his Global Reflections CD. This Cd features six sound recordings from various sites around the world. We listened to the one from Montreal. But he takes the idea in an interesting direction by using motifs he's recorded on site and then translates them into the language of the solo soprano sax.

Secondly our ears get a bit arythmic with our old friend Jon Oswald. These works continue to fascinate me. There use of recognizable tunes reconstructed yet still retaining an aural reference to the original, it's something about their ability to invoke and reconfigure that intrigues me. Here in "Rose" the echoes of Captain Beefheart's peculair brand of rhythm and chaos is turned in to chaos and a lilting twisted flower unfolds.

Z'EV takes us to the outro. We sampled the sounds of "The Smoking Key" off of the latest sampler from the Atlantic Waves music fest. The piece may sound like it is overly saturated in reverb, muddied and indistinct. But the medium is the message. Listen closely for the sounds of insects, archangels, and fauns speaking in tongues.

Seeing and the letter C Listen Ability Rating: Odd Dj makes mix of sounds with a coincidental letter.

Yes there are some new sounds awaiting your ears, hear they are here. Been reading about the Return of Quetzlcoatl, a book by Daniel Pinchbeck.  Got me motivated to assemble this mix.

First up, after my "intro", we listen to Sonic Youth off of their latest CD Rather Ripped and the track "Do you beleive in rapture?"

There are a few tracks in the mix by Curium and the CD Nowever. The CD is built around poems by ee cummings and it's cool. I played "When God Decided To Invent" and "O Purple Finch/ Please Tell Me Why."

Sandwiched in between the Curium is a group called The Dead C. We listened to "Voodoo Spell" off of Vain, Erudite And Stupid .

Closing out the set we heard @C and their found sound masterpiece Int 10_34. Enjoy.
