Mystified- Discourse In Dust And Steel [treetrunk 341]

“Discourse In Dust And Steel” is a longform piece informed by samples from “Particular Streams” (sounds collected from my old apartment in South Saint Louis). These sounds have been processed and arranged, adding rhythm, energy and intentionality to the originals. Some of the flavor of the dusty old apartment remains, but it has been represented and revisited– re-located, if you will, near the expressway.

Jack Hertz- The Burning Ember Of Stingy Jack [treetrunk 337]

“With its origin in the Gaelic celebration, ‘Samhain’. Halloween is my favorite holiday for so many reasons. I like to carve my own sonic pumpkin to mark the occasion. Speaking of pumpkins. This year, I have something with late-60s modular-synth styled piece titled, ‘The Burning Ember of Stingy Jack’. My homage to the legend of the Jack-O-Lantern.”- Jack Hertz, 2015

Mystified- Sovereign [treetrunk 336]

“Sovereign” is mystified’s tribute to Rapoon’s excellent “Cold War: Drum ‘N’ Bass” double cd, out on Caciocavallo Records, 2001. Thomas of Mystified has been listening to Rapoon’s album quite a bit of late, and inspired by it and recent international events, felt it would be appropriate to create an album hearking back to the original– though to resurrect or banish a spectre, that is one of the album’s central questions.

Lux Inaccessibilis- The Windhover [treetrunk 335]

Lux Inaccessibilis is the project of a Benedictine monk. This work was inspired by the poem ‘The Windhover’ by Gerard Manley Hopkins-

I CAUGHT this morning morning’s minion, king-
dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding
Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding
High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing
In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing,
As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding
Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding
Stirred for a bird,—the achieve of; the mastery of the thing!

Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here
Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion
Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier!

No wonder of it: shéer plód makes plough down sillion
Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear,
Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion.

Various Artists- The UFO 1 Remix Project [treetrunk 334]

Mystified’s “The UFO Hoax” was a very successfull netrelease. Thomas of Mystified wondered if others had consulted Blue Book messages regarding the appearance of mysterious others, and asked a body of excellent musicians to use his same source material to concoct their own mixes of the piece “UFO 1”.

Christian Doil- der klang der bücher [treetrunk 332]

Sink in books – to move as the protagonists through deep worlds and adventures. the rhythmic scroll the pages – slow, sublime, full of energy. The album consists of six chapters. As sound sources I have many different books, an interior jalousie, a child’s rattle, a baby phone and the signal noise of an oven used.
