    You know you’re onto something when the first track (‘Blue Grey’) by this Canadian project opens with a shimmering plane of ebbing and flowing ringing tones that swing in from nowhere, hovers somewhere between your ears, and has the effect of transporting you outside yourself. You find yourself floating somewhere in the timeless interstitial spaces between being/non-being, knowing/not knowing, active/static. It’s a place where all states exist, and simultaneously where nothing happens. Here is where you swim, insensate and yet aware, existing in a condition of euphoria and beatitude, borne along by unfelt currents. All conditions pertain here: not only is there the feeling of bliss but it’s chased by an undercurrent tending towards chaos, a soft but insistent growling emerging through breaks in the roiling background. It’s not threatening, but it still carries a thrill of warning, signalling it shouldn’t be ignored.

    ‘Pipe’ steals in stealthily, a gentle humming occasionally broken by vibrating drones that hang suspended like motes in sunlight. As it progresses one imagines a blue sky against which white clouds drift past and evolve in slow motion, transforming, breaking apart, and reforming. Shapes and stories can read into the gradual billows and curls unfolding, expanding and contracting, revealing and hiding in a progressive unveiling. It’s a secret language, a natural one, the key to which could lift the obscuring curtain from our eyes to reveal the hidden things. Imperceptibly, however, the clouds grow greyer and darker, perhaps a note of caution that everything changes and nothing stays the same.

    In the last offering ‘Flowing’, a low bass drone flies in as from a distance, a granular buzz that, swirls, gyrates, and propels itself through the stratospheric heights above our heads, perhaps an obscure call from the remote cold and frigid boundaries. It’s an all-pervasive blanket of sound, embracing and enfolding, energising and invigorating. It’s the species of drone that seeps into the skin and settles, suffusing the system with a thrilling intensity. One cannot help but feel carried along with its flow, a liberating cascade of thoughts and feelings, letting the streams propel us wither it wants to roam. It’s exhilarating yet precarious, comforting but simultaneously disconcerting.

    These are scintillating creations, awash with subtle textural nuances and microtonic variations, always hovering somewhere between divine and earthy, free-flying and gravity-imprisoned. Each of the compositions lasts twenty minutes or longer, allowing each one to unfold gradually and logically, but never losing their focus or impetus. I found the suite as a whole strangely compelling, yin and yang in equal measure but with graduated shades in between. The art here though is that, despite an apparently limited palette, there’s still a sense of a broad spectrum of colour and detail, nuanced inevitably of course, but still there. I couldn’t have wished for a better introduction to the work of Purple Crow.

    (The final three tracks are shortened, edited versions specifically engineered for radio broadcast, a précis if you like of the full track.)

  • "Good news" (You know me, I'm also being dark about this)...

    We have internet at the place we ended up at, so here's a message about that... "Ooooohhh, wow." (Whatever) It's not set up well, but it seems to work for now.

    The station might work 'sometimes' but also be tweaked for a few days this week, so you know. I won't be doing anything special with it (have not in a while anyway) so it's being its usual chaotic self and choosing amazing music randomly as per its name. I love this station... best 'radio station' on Earth!

    I'm having one hell of a time adapting to all this crap here after 35 days of EXTREME STRESS while having 3-4 disabilities and no help what so ever! (Isn't life just so 'wonderful'? *Rolls eyes*) I'm taking 'drugs' just to try to sleep. (Yea, self-medication!)

    I'm an anti-social hermit so I'll leave it at that.

    And now, back to posting random news from my sources plus making fun of a collapsing civilization and the occasional funny video and of course news about crows and other superior friends. :>

  • "Satanic" energy directly rules the world on all levels from the top all the way down, except for the rare few who are victims of the majority, which is just second party rule anyway. The rest is just an argument about a specific small detail in a massive dark ocean of evil. Do not expect to be able to change anything or anyone other than the rare few who are already like yourself. Only intervention from forces above and beyond the influence of this "Satanic" evil stand a chance at true global change. #Baphomet #FreeMason #Royal #Possession.

  • Happy Sunday everyone! ^^ Here's a nice 'religious' number for you counter-culture humans out there.

    *** Divinity - Ohm ***

    Ohm is a dark electronic collaboration from producer Chris Peterson (Decree, FLA, Delerium) and electronic musician Craig Joseph Huxtable (Landscape Body Machine, Noise Unit)

    #FreeWill does not "belong to god".

  • When you are cursed by being in the wrong dimension by all the entities that do NOT want you here because you are 'spoiling their fun', if they cannot 'have you' right away, they will break you down in pieces, bite by bite, throughout your life, ripping chunks of spiritual flesh off your soul, until one of two things happens... You either leave in utter agony and hope they don't GRAB what's left of you on the way out for a final snack.... or they get into you while you are at your weakest and you become one of them.... Well, here's an analogy you might be familiar with (If not, you'd better be!)..... The other "Dale Cooper" from Twin Peaks season THREE. Not Duggie, no, the dark Dale. I don't want to become him... and do such things to anyone who once knew me, and trusted me. No, that's not good. All games must end at some point... and that's all this is ultimately. Just a ride..... in Hell.

    We all live inside a dream.

  • Sorni​-​Ekva by Sol Mortuus & Nubiferous

    Released today.

    Sorni-Ekva - split-album of Russian dark ambient \ ritual folk performers Sol Mortuus and Nubiferous. The album draws its idea from the legends of the Golden woman - the ancient goddess of the Siberian shaman peoples. In the compositions involved ethnic ritual instruments (gusli, harp, kalyuka, tambourine) and field recordings of the authors, transmitting the natural spirit of the legend.

    Give it a listen.

    Black Mara is an awesome label with all kinds of related music. Enjoy!

  • New music that sustains me, my only reason to exist. (PC)

    The Russian prophet of dark sonic surrealism Igor Potsukailo (Bardoseneticcube) once again teams up with the Japanese master of dark ambience Manabu Hiramoto (Shinkiro). "Beyond the Edge of the Universe" is their third collaboration work after "Four Noble Truths" (2011, Athanor) and "Inner and Outer Space" (2015, Zhelezobeton). Like both previous albums, the new release continues to explore the ghostly dichotomy of inner and outer worlds, this time shifting the focus to the border of the known universe and beyond.

    Unknown landscapes full of diverse acoustic phenomena are slowly unfolding before the aural gaze of the listener: from dense layers of synthetic sound and industrial samples to the finest emotional melodies, sensual female voices and echoes of a prepared koto. Such a rich sound palette allows the musicians to create incredible images, in the intricacies of which listeners can spend hours each time discovering something new. Beautiful, delicate and complex cosmic dark ambient music.

    Artwork was created by the St. Petersburg based designer Cyril Kazanov. The physical edition of the album is presented in two versions: a CD limited to 300 copies in a glossy 4-panel digisleeve and an audio cassette limited to 50 copies.

  • At 9:09 AM PST today, nothing but pure darkness once again on Chaotic Resonance radio... to match my nightmares that I wake up to and realize that awake is no different.

  • People want 'good news'.... I have none.... in a human sense... therefore I am 'evil' or at least 'negative' to them, in their 'opinion'. Doesn't bother me. Proud not to be a cancer cell. All 'good news' exists off Earth. (What there is). Other species, my family and even strangers fair better than here. I understand humans want to be 'entertained' and as distracted as possible.... I do too in this form... but all I can offer on this Titanic 'unsinkable' Earth is and it's in dark mode until further notice.
