Transmission 2.7

Here’s the latest selection from the Space Library – carefully curated and a little bit spacey. The wondrous Kahimi Karie gets us started with a lovely electronic puzzle called ‘Blue Orb’, a short diversion into the world of Stereolab then leads us into Patrick Cowley’s porn soundtrack music (believe the hype, it’s excellent). I’ll skim through the rest but Family Fodder again prove that they were the band that should have received far more accolades – and the same goes for the Gentle People whose ‘Superstar’ mixes a deep space ambiance with E.L.O. vocoder processed vocals. Let’s do this.

Transmission 1.21 – Xmas

T1.21 Xmas

It’s that time of year, so here’s a Christmas special – Space Library style. Apart from the odd version of traditional songs, most of these pieces of music have little to do with the event at hand. It is, however, music that sounds to me like it should, or could. Small touches of magic and paganism dot the proceedings, Kahimi Karie covers a lovely Virgina Astley song, there’s some lounge moments, early electronics, modern hauntology, and delicate sounds from Kate Bush, Pizzicato Five and the High Llamas.

There’s brand new magic from Karen Gwyer, Boards of Canada and the Moon Wiring Club curated compilation Down To The Silver Sea; Kahimi Karie takes on Holger Czukay and there’s even a little bit of M.

Transmission 1.5 “The Mind” [Special]


Transmission 1.5 The Mind

Every so often I’ll be including themed shows into the mix, and this is the first. I liked the idea of a show centred around The Mind – thoughts, dreams, inner voices, hypnosis, meditation – that sort of thing. Some of the tracks might also just sound right to me, like they belong both in this theme, and also in The Space Library.

There’s a lot of music in this hour, 25 different tracks, as it includes a certain amount of mixing and overlaying of tracks to create something new, there’s also 2 songs that are 17 seconds or less. One piece in particular I’d like to draw your attention to is Limbo (The Organized Mind) by electronic genius Raymond Scott and The Muppets’ Jim Henson. It’s a delight.

I had a lot of fun putting this together, I hope you enjoy it.
