Strictly Drone II

April 30, 2020

This collection (the second in my occasional drone series) features a Bumblebee, a Shamisen, a Nebulophone and a lot of layering. The photo is of the Moon from our garden, on a long exposure. It moved across the sky while nobody was looking.

I recommend playing this back on good headphones or on a music system with good bass.

Be sure to check the track info for ‘Bee Flight’, for details of how it was made.

Shamisen played by Yukari Lagowski. Bee sounds reproduced with permission.

Ohm 2019 live gear diagram

April 26, 2020

Here you can see the layout of my live gear for my gig organised by Sleepers, at Ohm in Berlin, in November 2019.  The Tascam is a digital recorder, used to capture the live set from the mixer outputs. The feint lines are audio signals. The others are MIDI or sync signals.

Beats came mostly from the Novation Circuit, which is two synths and four (drum/sound) sample locations in a sequenced box, and Korg ES-1 (sampling drum machine).

The iPad supplied various samples and noises programmed at the same BPM as the main beats.

The Eoten B is a handmade noise box by Orgeldream that can take inputs or generate a racket by itself.

‘Fla’ is a Boss BF3 flanger pedal and the Zoom is a CDR-70 multi effects pedal that provides the wonderfully smooth reverb.

The Volca Kick and Bass did a couple of tracks synched to each other but they didn’t perform well in the club and lost sync at times – not sure if they overheated or got moody. Either way, I sold them once I’d returned home.

The Circuit held its own really well in the club and I was pleased with how far I’d got programming it, having only bought it two weeks before the gig. Looking forward to hooking up a Circuit Mono Station synth to it in the next week or two.

Guestmix by Andrew Lagowski

February 22, 2020



We are honored to present our latest Guestmix by Andrew Lagowski who has been making electronic music, evocative soundscapes and varying degrees of noise since the early 80’s. This also coincides with his birthday which is today! His selections are short but exceptionally honed in, including a sneak peek at a yet unreleased work of his own S.E.T.I. project – heard here for the first time!

S.E.T.I.Only Dust (forthcoming)


I have included tracks which either remained with me for many years, as inspiration, such as Howard Shore’s Videodrome work, or that signify my fascination with the darker and more ‘eroded’ aspects of human nature. Also included is a mix of one of the tracks from my forthcoming S.E.T.I. album (still in production), which…
