Charles

COEC @ SSD-1

I will be doing a live, ambient/electronic improv set with Charles Ballas in Denver on Sunday March 5th, 2017. Conveniently located off of the central light rail line at Alameda Station, should be no reason for you not to slow-down your Sunday and join us.  4-6pm. White Whale Room is the venue; looks like a ultra hip place to spend the afternoon!

Sunday Slow-Down live electronic music

The theme of this event will be simplicity.  No car needed, I’ll just have focus on one piece of gear, likewise Charles will bring a guitar and looper pedal.  We’re going as Chill Out Enforcement Crew and do take our jobs seriously!  LOL.

The flyer is turntable illusion art.  Print it and stick it on your LP player for some optical illusions!  Then you’ll fully understand the vibe we’re looking forward too!

Snowy Day Mixtape

Snowy Day Mixtape

With the snow dumping outside, and nothing really to do except sit by the warm fire, I created this Snowy Day Mixtape.  Lots of female vocals, some trip hop, downtempo, shoegaze, krautrock and electro ambient all mashed up together in a single mix.  Since I’m going nowhere, this is a 30m double-pack.  Enjoy!

Tracks:

  1. Trentemoller “Dirty Snow”
  2. How to Destroy Angels “The Space in Between”
  3. Donna Regina “Let’s Get Slow”
  4. Haujobb “X-Flow”
  5. Siouxsie and the Banshees “Red Light”
  6. Terranova “Never”
  7. Trentemoller “Even Though You’re With Another Girl”
  8. Dopplereffekt “Myon-Neutrino”
  9. Boards of Canada “Reach for the Dead”
  10. Stereolab “Harmonium”
  11. Ellen Allien and Apparat “Way Out”
  12. Portishead “Chase the Tear”

New Multicast tracks posted!

We have been working this winter on going through the archive and putting a seal on it; we have about 7 or so tracks left to edit down from the last set of shows in 2010 and 2011.  We have recorded some new great tracks (currently doing the finalization of edits) that will also be posted here shortly.  But in the mean time; here are four new Multicast tracks posted on Soundcloud and obliq.net.

Enjoy!

KUCB Ambient & Techno Show: March 13, 1994


I was able to go through all my old mixtapes and I removed and trashed all the outer plastic cases; now I have three shoeboxes full of tapes to someday go digital with…picked one out at random and here it is. No markings other than March 13, 1994. I’ll work on a set list but there are several I’m not likely going to remember…perhaps you can help?

The first several sets were chill/ambient and then led into more techno/dance stuff later on in the show.

Enjoy!

Kraftwerk – Ralf & Florian
? (on the tip of my tongue)
?
Aphex Twin – SAW2
Delerium – Stone Tower
? (again, on the tip of my tongue)
Locust – Weathered Well
Germ – Gone
?
?
< — Heads off in a techno/trance direction — >
Sequential – 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea
The Hallucination Generation ‎– Black Holes And Baby Universes
? (again, on the tip of my tongue)
Resistance D
?
?
Acrid Abeyance – Exposure Track

Mixtape: 30m – Chillimental circa 1994 – Experimental/Ambient

davealex - 30m series
Here was a radio show that I did, likely late night, that was more experimental/ambient.  In the spirit of the 30m series, here is 30+ minutes of ambient electronics.  Not sure of the exact date but I know it is 1994.

Multicast presents “Sea Foam Green”…

After most of the winter hiatus, Multicast is back! This time with a track to lull you into a trance…or simply to sleep! Sea-foam Green is about the seashore experience; I’m sure you’ve all been there and done that! Sitting on the shore listening to the waves unravels everything inside of you and brings out the relaxation in any of us. This track is a metaphor for this feeling…the lapping patterns of the waves making peaceful sea-foam.

Please don’t operate heavy machinery or drive while listening to this track. You’ve been warned!
