Stateless - 4/28/06 - Photos and Audio!
Mad respect to Tim Barsky, for playing an amazing battle-flute set! It was one of those nights filled with many memorable and even moving moments... At the end of the evening, Tim and I were outside chatting about sound and mysticism (check out Hazrat Inayat Khan's "The Mysticism of Sound and Music"), as well as some particular cross-cultural instances of sound and healing (check out "Dancing Prophets: Musical Experiences in Tumbuka Healing"), while The Worker was dropping a solid set inside the warm, cozy walls of Amnesia. While we were chatting, a woman approached Tim and told him that he had "made their evening." She even jokingly added that if they ever decided to become groupies, they would be his! It was a sweet moment and just nice to see people enjoying the night's sounds... Hopefully the sonic dialogues will continue, with indian classical meets beatboxing collaborations to come later this year - keep tuned...
In the meantime, here are links to the evening's music:
(1) Tomas (XLR8R, Votage Music) - audio stream pending
(2) Special Agent K (Stateless, Roots and Wires Hi-Fi) - stream set
-there are some technical glitches (including a sound guy that dropped the levels a few times during my set), but I'm pretty happy with it otherwise. check out the second track for some original, digi-dubplate pressure (but also still a work in progress)...
i'll have the playlist up soon...

We'll be coming at you with Stateless 5 this May 26th, again a friday at Amnesia. Our live performer for the night will be Kush Arora - bringing his unique and edgy original dubwise, bhangra productions... I'll also be unleashing some more dubplate pressure - classical indian sarangi and sarod cradled in some fierce junglist breakbeats. We're also hoping to get some visual artists on board... It just keeps on getting bigger!
