sybil jason (farced / wierd)
New York resident Sybil Jason provides a guest mix for tonight's broadcast.
Sybil has been running the blog Farced since 2006. Regularly updated with glimpses into her life living in New York as well as other ephemera, it is her excellent skill as a curator and the frequent mixes that she posts on the blog that noticeably attract attention.
Although her selections tend to explore the sounds of minimal synth, post-punk, industrial, noise and experimental music it certainly isn't the only reflection of her tastes. She will be reaching into the deepest recesses of her record collection for the mix that she has kindly put together for Earthly Matters, entitled "Querencia".
For any of you who may be unfamiliar with her, she has hosted Veronica Vasicka's Minimal Wave show on East Village Radio on a number of occasions and was also commonly seen playing at the excellent Wierd Records club night which sadly finished at the end of February, 2013.
The full tracklist and recording of the mix is available to look at and listen to on Sybil's blog on the link provided:

" . . . The spectacle took place in front of an old Hindu temple. Before the temple a pit fifteen feet long and five feet wide had been prepared and filled with burning coals. The people in charge of building the pit continuously doused themselves with water to keep cool enough to work close to the fire.
/ . . . the fire walkers prepared themselves with a ceremonial bath in the sea about a mile from the temple.
/ . . . the high priest, in striking headdress, stepped into the pit.
/ . . . Slowly and sedately he walked across the live coals, revealing not the slightest sign of pain. Behind him followed fifteen or twenty of the more faithful natives of Tamil.
/ . . . A number of the walkers returned for a second and even third crossing. In the final part of the annual ritual the high priest performed his customary 'faint' and was carried to the temple. The ceremony was over . . . "
. . . .
A vibrational excursion exploring textural field recordings, ambient elevations and erratic minimal synth / wave electronics to stimulate the senses and heighten your awareness.
