exploring time on tonight’s Blind Flight

Hello.

On this week’s edition of the program, I’ll be exploring the concept of time and the devices that measure this phenomenon, clocks.

As it was said in a popular television show in the 90’s "I think we’re too obsessed with time: save time, don’t waste time, be on time, what are we in such a hurry to do?"

So, on this week’s program, I’ll be presenting timeless music by such artists as Gimu, Dark Muse, Jack Hertz, Dave Luxton, Bing Satellites, Thom Brennan, Lucette Bourdin , Michael Sandler and the cd of the week by the featured artist of the month, Earlyguard, Lost in Time.

I hope you’ll slow down a little and join me at 11 PM central time (even I can’t escape having a schedule for the program) on www.stillstream.com/

Thanks for listening.

TONIGHT’S BLIND FLIGHT

Hello. On tonight’s edition of the program, the theme is desolation, emptiness and isolation, feelings we all experience from time to time. As the dark balances out the light, emptiness, desolation and isolation can provide internal space for self-examination and analysis in a world where our lives are often too busy and where we have schedules that are often too full, being continuously imposed on by outside influences.

I’ll be playing tracks by Broken Harbour, Edge of October, Eccentrum, Lucette Bourdin, Cousin Silas, Michael Sandler, and the feature cd of the week is called Isolation BY Earlyguard, the feature artist of June.

Please tune in starting at 11 PM central time for the Blind Flight on www.stillstream.com/

Thanks for listening.

new release: The Eternal Torment Of Prometheus (with Mister Vapor)

Hello.

I’d like to announce my newest release and to thank Thomas Park for making the drone available as the primary inspiration and source of this meditative long form track.

Here are the release notes for the album.

"Prometheus lay, bound by a chain, on a rock on mount kazbek being awakened by the cold of the winter wind. He instinctively knew why this eternal fate had befallen him but knowing didn’t help ease the anxiety of the torment to come, every day, not at the same time, but at various intervals, to maintain the agony and suspense of the punishment."

"Like he had done for thousands of years, he began the breathing ritual, in and out, slow deliberate breaths, deep and profound to clear the mind and dull the conscious feeling of anxiety that permeated his very existence. At first it had accomplished nothing, seeming futile but over time, the breathing ritual seemed to not only clear his mind of all thoughts, but it seemed to suspend time itself."

"This was the moment he longed for each day, or was it an hour, or a day or an eternity? It didn’t matter, he hovered near death, his heart slowed to an almost unimaginable lethargy and he would in all appearances be dead. His mind reached further and further into the void as his physical form waited for the inevitable extraction of the vital organ, and after the body recovered from the shock of such an event, sleep would come to regenerate his physical being and the torment would continue until time itself faded away into the void of eternal space."– Scott Lawlor, 2014

One main source for this track is a drone entitled "Prometheus", by Mister Vapor, which is available here for streaming or downloading:
