Episode 11 (November 10)
Rope Walk by Peter Heselton
The work created for this podcast is an abridged selection from the forthcoming album Rope Walk
The tracks are:
1 - Limnal phase (excerpt)
2 - Fortune favours the favoured
3 - Before the fall
4 - No return
5 - Rope walker (excerpt)
The work ROPE WALK is an abstract narrative that links structures and western tropes to audibly picture a philosophical encounter with what we are versus what we show. It deals in sonic terms with the existential, the ontological and the fallibility of humanity. It begins like this:
A person wakes up, in total darkness. They have no recollection of who they are. where they are, or why they are. through coming to terms with the dark they move forward. There is a metal ladder in front. They climb because there is no other choice. The metal rungs fall away as they climb. There is no going back. The ladder has fallen away. There is only a platform remaining. and a rope. Stretched bold across the blackness. There is no choice other than die at the top, fall to the floor or move on. Walk across the Rope.
What lies beyond the rope. The full version of the album (with all 7 tracks) ROPE WALK Will be due for release soon.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.

Dirty Angel 14-2
LaptopAcidXperience (aka LAX aka Roger Armstrong) has been making electronic music since the early 90's when the Rezerection raves in Newcastle and the legendary John Peel introduced him to Acid House and Techno. The DIY mentality of the early Chicago and Detroit pioneers influenced him to produce his own material and ultimately led to film making, after several shorts & music videos he is currently nearing completion of his first feature.

Zilmrah Is a philosophy or musical vision. It encompasses the need to explore as well as to build onto non-existing audio backdrops. It is not bound by the weight of preconceived genres to guide its motives. There is only room for growth with the removal of expectation. Musical Instruments and sound sculptures are designed for the project for perpetual audio motion and also for cultural expansion; the likes of which have been constricted by habit and progressive discipline. This particular project can also be seen as a directive in opposition to musical stability. It uses its own textures and structures to expand its own place in the genre cluttered world. There is a Spiritual force present in this sound but it is the inner freedom of audible creativity that unleashes this feeling . Open sound is and will always be the only motive to continue doing this for me. There are no political, religious, social motives or hidden agendas guiding this project. It is simply spiritual, either constructive or destructive depending on what is being expressed at that particular time. People need to discover for themselves and not be told how to create or how to feel. Aside from sound creation the project has featured the contribution of video artists and experimental dancers. In future installments for live events there will be expanded membership to play some of the new musical instruments; some of which are acoustic percussive, electric and electro-acoustic. I am often looking for innovative artists to collaborate with whether they are musicians, video artists, dancers, instrument builders, poets or performance artists, so if this project seems interesting to you and it connects with your sensibilities and agrees with your aesthetics then feel free to contact me.
Episode 3 (March 10)
Electric Shamen by Black Saturn
Black Saturn returns to the podcaster frequencies as the Electric Shamen. The wordsounds (lyrics) that were the critical elements in his calling things into being are summoned once again as the chanting voices flowing like electricity thru the beat conductors of the Shamen. As we gain momentum whorling into the future in a cosmic backspin. The tubes in the preamp of time are burning hotter in 2010 with everything old being new again. Our retrograde fixations especially the current one with the music of 80's pop culture is headed for a meltdown. In the form of spontaneous creative combustion a new sound will come forward suddenly & unexpected without warning. 2010 marks the beginning of this odyssey. The Electric Shamen represents the spiritual energy of this phenomenon. Black Saturn is the vessel in tune with the Universal System Of Sound aligned in space & time with the vision of the event about to transpire. When it happens remember who predicted it & who was practising the ritual art of calling things into being that are not as tho they already were. Selah!!!!!!!!!
About Black Saturn:
In a infinite world of sound, sound is the companion of our thoughts. Black Saturn is a concept created in this reality. Life is a rhythm in a series of thoughts. The heart is an acoustic drum nothing is new and nothing is old under the pulsating pattern of emotions percussion. The mind is a improviser a drum machine echoing in the reverberation of the subconscious until it becomes a drum pattern in the conscious. The noise of change thought battles to over come as a rhythm. I'm a warrior drum the most feared of all instruments calling things into being that are not as tho they already where.
Black Saturn released - with his friend Chris/subduxtion/FluiD - a full-length album on Alrealon Music called 'Ancient Kingdom' (under the name Black Saturn vs. subduxtion), still available @ Alrealon Music.

Episode 2 (February 10)
PAS: Thoughts From the Interior
PAS (Post Abortion Stress) started in 1995 out of Brooklyn, NY, USA, driven by the creative talents of Robert L. Pepper working in the mediums of sound and video. Since then PAS has evolved into a collective with many different instrumentations and line ups. Permanent members include Amber Brien, Job “Vomit” Worthley, Michael Durek, and Will Seesar. Guests and occasional collaborators include ZEV!, Steve Beresford, Matt Chilton (Vultures), Anthony Donovan (Vultures), Damien Olsen, Philippe Petit, Robert Pascale, and many others.
PAS have released 6 full length cd’s and have been on several compilations throughout the years. Some of these can be found on www.cdbaby.com or iTunes. PAS have performed in various countries including the United States, Germany (including Fausts Avant Garde Festival 2009), the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Macedonia, and Poland, just to name a few. Sound and video installations have also included Chile and the United States.
PAS (Post Abortion Stress) is a group out to create musical collages through the form of abstract sound. Their name refers metaphorically to those who have been aborted by society, because their point of view doesn’t fit in the constraints of “normal” society. The short name refers to the negative in French, metaphorically negating everything that is established to start from a new beginning. The viewpoint fuels our creativity to create our own world of beauty. Since our inception the band has been interested in making music from the fringes of perception, creating soundscapes that aren’t defined by any particular conventions or viewpoints. The aesthetic underpinnings are defined by the notion that music can be whatever the ear perceives. It’s a conception fueled by the love of life and art. It’s a desire for honest artistic self-expression. The compositions themselves are more akin to soundscapes than “songs” in the traditional sense. There are no clearly defined melodies, no structural landmarks that give you any sense of traditional anchor. This is not music making with any sense of or desire for commercial viability, but sonic sculptures in the mode of pure art.

First Series (2009)
2009 marked the beginning of the Alrealon Artists Podcast Series. The first series was a big success! Many thanks to all the listeners and friends of Alrealon Music.

The series featured Alrealon artists as well as artists associated with Alrealon. I'd like to give a big THANK YOU to all the artists who contributed to the inaugural series. All of this was just the beginning as we plan to out-do ourselves in 2010. We already have the second series planned out!

About our host:
[distopia] = A society characterized by human misery, as squalor, oppression, disease, and overcrowding.
-The project was formed in 2005, inspired by the urban industrial sub-culture, combining both social and religious/occult/sci-fi themes.
-[distopia] released a demo in summer 2006, which was circulated in a very small basis and joined RottingHam net label later in 2006. The first full length named "Non_Entity" was released in Feb 2007, followed by a proposal to take part in a remix compilation for Greek hardcore punk veterans, Antidrasi, and a proposal to participate in a movie score, although that never came to terms. Summer of 2007 gave two more releases, "Timescape" EP and "Research On Human Dementia", a collaboration with Italian noise artist TSIDMZ. In January 2008 Split with Gas Masked Lestat was released by Species Productions in digipack CDr. "The Somnambulist" EP, was released by Format Noise April 2008 and was re-released by Species in slim digipack CDr December 2008. Another release is in the final stages of manipulation, to be released in 2009-2010 by Species, which is a full length album as well as an assortment of all songs composed in late 2006-early 2007 and are still being worked on. It's sound is mostly old-school industrial/dark ambient.
[The project is influenced by life and all that stem from life. My personal thoughts and experience, my personal "itches", my personal opinions and every little thing that stems from all that. Social decay, my beliefs on society, people i'm obliged to communicate with and get along with, my personal views on everything, past and present conflicts and experience. And yes, i'm always discontent. I don't like the world i live in, and that's what keeps me going. I don't say its ok and revel in my ignorance.]

Alrealon Podcasts Review by Mark / Losing Today
the Alrealon collective have just started posting pod casts - there's been three to date the latest - (newly posted as of today) being a hefty slab of FluiD, not to be confused with the mid 90's Sub Pop combo of the same name or the powerised carnage trio from Germany who graced these very pages sometime last year with the killer 'iots' full length. Instead this variant hails from Chicago - the solo project of Christophe G aka the post human cyborg: subduxtion. pod cast 1 features the apocalyptic future rap of Black Saturn in a face off with subduxtion - absolutely no info on Black Saturn other than the small detail that he hails from Virginia. Anyway its all edgy stuff, intense and bleakly scribed with a doom scarred outlook which we swear once uncovered of its binary squiggles and general austere and off kilter confused communique discordance sounds like Public Enemy relocated to a landscape more befitting a scene from Blade Runner - mind you we swear we have their album kicking about (though typically with these things we can't immediately put our hands to right now) and from what we've heard this should be well up the street of those of you who recall Silver Bullet from a few years back while simultaneous veering territories previously surveyed by Depth Charge. Its witheringly hollowed stuff but well worth checking out. Pod cast 2 features 40 plus minutes of towering transcendental stateliness from the aforementioned John 3:16 - really has to be heard to be believed sounding as it does as like some contact seeking extra terrestrial time capsule shipped in from across the cosmic voids from a long since dead civilisation - absolutely stunning and all at once magnificent, monolithic and majestic. As hinted previously the latest episode - 3 therefore - features FluiD. 'the sonic art of juxtaposition' features a 30 minute showcase of sound which quite frankly can only be best described as some fantastically magnified peak into a insectoid lair, very eerie and at times disturbingly hollowed and dark, the arid ambient cascades, ripples of white noise interference and the achingly slow evolution of the aural textures much reminiscent at times of both Aidan Baker and Soriah yet on the other hand briefly revealing by way of the becoming gloom swept tide daubs suggesting perhaps someone has been tuning into long forgotten 70 Gwen Party cassettes. Whatever the case its consuming stuff best viewed and experienced we feel in the cold harsh light of day preferably with the lights on and with the company of friends.
