  • Web Destination – Open Culture

    Dave Wesley, March 11th 2017

    Open Culture is a most amazing curated aggregation of interesting music, movies, education, videos, etc…  all accessible for free.  I have found a lot of sample food (for audio production) and interesting and inspiring nuggets.  It’s an ever-deepening (already deep) well of content and I have a great amount of respect for Dan Colman.  Someone […]

  • Visible Cloaks – Reassemblage

    Gabi Von Dub, March 9th 2017

    Springtime is being delivered earlier this year, by the Oregon´s duo Carlile and Doran aka Visible Cloaks. Reassemblage justifies beyond the duty…  an immense dive into ambient and delicate abstractions, which grounds dreams and reality in perfect stillness. Essential since the first listen. Get it here: https://visiblecloaks.bandcamp.com/album/reassemblage

  • Mix – Surgeon (ambient set) at Freerotation 2014

    Dave Wesley, March 7th 2017

    This is one of my favorite experimental ambient sets ever.   The Buchla Music Easel doesn’t hurt either.

  • Repost – The 10 Weirdest, Most Wonderful Ricardo Villalobos Tracks

    Dave Wesley, March 4th 2017

    As a producer and a listener, I still have a strange but healthy fascination with Ricardo, even though he seems to have settled into his musical context.  I will always give his new stuff a listen to see if he has returned to bending the rules. Re-posting this cool article from Pulse.

    Dom Fox, February 24th 2017

    After listening to the first weird mix by The Push, I had to dig up others…  Here’s a truly weird companion to the other posted mix here on Sursumcorda. Sincerely yours, Dom

  • Mix – The Push – v2.2 – Social Studies of Loch Ness and a Demolition Girl

    Dom Fox, February 23rd 2017

    The Push are know for their deep meditative electronic music… but once in awhile they barf up somewhat twisted eclectic mixes that are far from genre locked and are highly produced with sound effects and creative transitions, etc.  This is one of those mixes from several years back.  Glad I found it. With love and respect, Dom

  • NightFlight is Back!

    Dom Fox, February 19th 2017

    NightFlight is back with a Plus subscription and a Roku channel.  I can not overstate the amount of influence that this late night cable television production had on my young life, in the 80s…  an open cultural window to the world from a barren small North Dakota college apartment. The resurrected site and library feature […]

  • Mix – Fluxion – Secret Thirteen Mix 211

    Dave Wesley, February 13th 2017

    Great “out-there” mix by a modern master of the dark dub techno genre…  This one is a bit on the experimental and gritty side with some beautiful “glimmers of hope”.  Very inspirational and timely.  Time to do some digging in the dirt with a flashlight.

  • Playlist – A Young Person’s Guide To The Avant-Garde

    Dave Wesley, February 12th 2017

    Re-posted from my so-called blog at Arctic Dub (Sursumcorda): Say what you will about streaming music robbing artists of their fair share (and it’s true and most likely temporary)…  but the advantages of ubiquitous streaming and all access passes to deep wells of human musical expression for the curious and aficionados is totally fantastic. And, […]
