February sunshine part II

When the spirit of gravity was founded, round here it was all fields,

Wise words from Mr Nick Rilke of This Sound Bureaucracy, the electro-poetic rantings of the permanently sane.


Here is a rerun of an old live favourite, the first time we’ve managed to snag it for ourselves.

Ry-Om spent a while loading their laptops with guitar scrapes squeaks and squangles.


Then slowly let them escape to run around the room.

Halal Kebab Hut defy explanation.


Listen to this and then it may be better to watch the video in part I

Heres another still from Ry-Om’s set, we liked this one, a nice shot of _minimalVector action.

The March Show – Komuso, Ry-om, Miasmos

Komuso had McCloud and Waxed Apples’ Caleb guesting on bass guitar and bent drum machine respectively. Cliff forsaking the drums and controlling the mix, and Derek on CD decks and FX.

Enormous sheets of sound, occasional grooves and random bits of dialogue from a film being shown (not in this mix) from a box at the back.

here is an excerpt from around 5 minutes in:

Ry-om were beautiful, abtsract, and comlpetely stereo, which means that the problem with the Minidisk won’t give us a recording that does justice to their set, I think it may well be available from them, though, at

www.ry-om.net

If not they have lots of other bits and pieces: recommended.

Miasmos gave us epic sequenced movements with some fat analogue sounds (where from?) and lengthy delays. Its just mono enough that I don’t feel too bad faking up a stereo track from the Right channel, but if you want more (and you do) he has cd’s avalable from www.superbo.org

Here is his last (lengthy) piece I don’t have the name for it:
