What you won't find here is a comprehensive list of everything I've ever been into. I've tried to stick to those links that I rarely see elsewhere. Yep, some of the people represented are friends of mine, and others I will probably never meet. However, they've all shaped the way I listen and behave in some significant way.
Sonic artist and improvisor - member of Zaum and No Context.
Home of The Berg Sans Nipple - a fantastic improvisation/live sampling duo.
Don't be put off by the naff name, Brenda sound massive...stadium-sized thinking-rock with loads of unusual processing, big chords and clever time-changes.
Outstanding analogue studio in the tranquility of the New Forest. Bands to grace Chuckalumba include Electric Wizard, Hunting Lodge and Sunshine Republic.
Hand-to-mouth electronica label based in Swanage
Home of Death by Horsecock, When Day Chokes the Night and all the other stuff these folks do. Well good.
From a distance: an undulating and ever-changing atmospheric hum - up close: a hive of musical microparticles swarming to create stunning electroacoustic landscapes. Lopez's vision is of the world as a massive organic sound generator, and his music has left me breathless on several occasions.
What will they do next..?
ambient/drone/noise/esoteric music on cdr
Website of photography and web artist Paul Hockett - stunning stuff.
Experimental electronics and feedback processing from The Netherlands.
The incredible Navigator don't exist anymore. Burning Shed have got a CD of their original singles. Find their bleak drone masterpiece 'nostalgie' if you can, its worth all the effort.
Superior online music journal.
Andrew Perry and everything he does - solo, collaborations, guitar drone/mouth-slop
Dublin label / radio / events sporting some stunning ambient/electronics
Dorset promotors par excellence.
Puts most other british radio to shame. There's nothing the LMC aren't prepared to programme, music-wise. Intelligent and surprising.
A kindred spirit in the onedeafear world...Can't be bothered to have a big project? Can't get around to finishing everything? Got too many ideas to run with..? Don't worry, just do what Elks, Scout Hut and Like A Cornered Rabbit Like A Cornered Fox have done, and regard everything as a SIDE PROJECT! Great art, interesting music, and absolutely no pretensions.
The academic end of electronic music. Superb source of links and new music.
Dorset record label - home of the very fine True Swamp Neglect.
Understated, delicate and beautiful songwriting/programming.
Top illustrations and cartoons featuring the rich, the famous, monkeys and dog-poo, from a top chap. Brilliant.
Noise terror duo featuring Bart of Jack Nicholson
Thomas Truax, Sister Spinster and The Hornicator.
