another blac world

Richard H. Kirk has released another CD as Blacworld. Subduing Demons In South Yorkshire is described as "An exercise in sonic meditation and satanic dub, essentially an ambient remix of Blacworld. Clocking in as a single track at a staggering 53 minutes 52 seconds, I.D.s have been added at relevant points throughout to enable the listener to easily access into the body of the track should they so desire. Due to the hypnotic nature of the soundscapes, it is a genre defying composition that soon draws in the listener to terrifying effect." It's out now on Intone.

ARANOS JOINS THE CIRCUS

Some interesting news from the Emerald Isle: Aranos will be playing live, spinning some records and performing as part of an improv trio as an accompaniment to a UV light show, all proceeds going towards the Galway circus project, which gives local kids the opportunity to learn circus skills like juggling, unicycling and clowning. This sounds like a joke, but apparently it's not, and the outdoor show takes place on the 23rd of April at 3:00 PM in Millennium Park, and 9:00 PM at the Galway Rowing Club. Aranos will also be performing in Townhall Theatre in Galway on the 26th on May. Be there or be sane.
