On The Origin Of Rogue Pulse / Gravity Collapse: About two weeks to the day before Ghostship, we returned home after days of protests; as always feeling defeated, BEING defeated another day of violence enacted upon the communities’ consciousness; Witnessing the beautiful families of oakland wading through never ending rivers of trauma enacted on all marginalized communities through state sanctioned violence and racism in Oakland, and the Bay Area at large. A compilation will not solve this, a thousand compilations will not solve this, but we have done nothing to combat this and we have to start somewhere. ROGUE PULSE / GRAVITY COLLAPSE is an uncertain yet thorough attempt to demonstrate to propose a restructuring of how artists, labels, promoters, venues and other “institutions” and INSTITUTIONS use their privilege, time, talents, and resources. But before we could do that, and begin to unpack the complexities around all of these issues, in one single night, the community lost thirty six souls, including founding members of our collective, artists on our label, family members, and so much more in Ghostship and then months after RP/GC was released, almost a dozen more in the San Pablo Fire months later which displaced hundreds of longstanding Black members of the community, and lastly the North Bay fires. There is only so many ways to process or not process this stuff, but we came up with a compilation. We weren’t sure how long it would be, who would be included, how we would present it to the public without exacerbating the commodification of grief, and without taking visibility away from traumas enacted against the Oakland community at large, outside of the “artistic” community. We weren’t really at all sure how we would divide up the money, how we would promote it, but sometimes you don’t have any other fucking choice, even if it raised $100 you never know how far that could go.. Ghostship was, and still is a horrendous blow to our local creative community, many of whom had already been resisting against the structural wrath and chaos of a white supremacist, sexist, capitalist culture, and therefore already just struggling to create and survive, day by day hour by hour minute by minute. In short, many communities were fragmented and tormented long before Ghostship, and Ghostship, for many of us, brought a blade of mass trauma slicing through reality, grief, chaos, distrust and confusion that uprooted the community in so many different ways. The Immediate Fire relief fund literally saved people’s lives by the way and all the love should be given to them and those working on the periphery as well.

What was crucial for us was linking in those deeply affected and lost in Ghostship fire while also keeping the financial and conceptual focus on the organizations we chose to support before the fire, Black Lives Matter and St James Infirmary in San Francisco. Before we knew it, it was out. It was like the best and worst possible distraction, and in MANY ways, postponed a lot of the mental and physical healing that members of the collective needed to do for ourselves but at the same time it was, and still very much is an entry point for beginning the process. For me personally, this has easily been the single most important release I have ever been a part of for numerous reasons, but the single biggest reason is because it saved my life, literally, so many times I cannot even count and it did that by showing me the undeniable ferociousness of our community. Every track on ROGUE PULSE / GRAVITY COLLAPSE, came as a blessing, a hug, a shoulder to cry on, but also they came as weapons, one hundred and eighty seven weapons, and we couldn’t be happier with the finished offering, as it strives to demonstrate the unrelenting power through all of the trauma and grief that our community and the people of Oakland, through various intersections possess and present with every moment that they exist. Nihar’s essential, heartfelt, and nearly perfect distillation of the thirteen hours of Rogue Pulse / Gravity Collapse, carefully and masterfully sharpens heavy stones of grief into razor blades of warmth, love, creativity, and determination of our community like daggers to the throat of a broken, corrupt system. Every tear shed will eventually freeze to form an icicle to thrust into the socket of a system which has cast away so many amazing, beautiful, creative, people.

This mix is one for everyone who has lost a loved one at the hands of systemic violence. Your tears will not go unnoticed, and this is just the beginning.

DECAYCAST021: RAVEN : WE WILL START TO WORRY WHEN THE CYNICS START TO BELIEVE

Far far far far far away from the beautiful slums of the Decaycast West Oakland, CA headquarters Raven sent a sonic telegram which was usurped by the Decaycast drone bot and decrypted the file, and now it is presented to you.

DECAYCAST021: RAVEN : “WE WILL START TO WORRY WHEN THE CYNICS START TO BELIEVE”.

Ten minutes of crawling , shrieking militant style delicious walls of sonic scummed up textures. This guy knows his production and knows his sound. This is the sonic content of the citizens LRAD (Long Range Acoustic device) to fight back against corrupted states of decay with uncannied aural powers. Raven is deep, dark, and hard to find……

GUMBALL RIMPOCHE “I Had A Dream Last Night” Mix. 19:07 {35mb}

Mr. Rimpoche composes 19 minutes of stellar aural frontal lobe circus surgery with voice, samples, and nano-technology. composed for the un-ex-sub-non conscious 29th century intellectual. Die 999 times and be reborn 1000 ..and it gets better every time with this one. This kid’s a star in 2010, no doubt about…Sounds best in a dark cement room with cockroach reverberation flickering your inner ear.. ……These writings were encrypted within the audio file that came from the artists’s hacked computer harddrive,,,,,
“On the night of the last RATSKIN show, I had a very strange and…
mundane dream.

I was at a Lady Gaga concert, enjoying the rediculous pop spectacle,
when she decided to make things a bit more interesting– laying down
on the stage spread-eagle, she exposed her writhing tarantula bush to
the audience. I immediately (as if by instinct) jumped up there and
dove straight in.

After that we were inseperable, each feeding from the others’ bloated
ego like two fat grubs connected asshole to asshole (Ouroboros?) The
sex was blindingly mediocre–filled with knives and empty promises.
We wrote and produced two albums together before our love consumed all
reason and we found ourselves filled with drugs and trapped in a
shithole apartment in Queens. I tried to dump her for a vocoder, but
she wasn’t having it..

The double murder that resulted is still one of the strangest unsolved
cases of all time.”

Count Loachfillet

COUNT LOACHFILLET’S WORM PERIL FOR OTHER GHASTLY TREATS and webbous sonic ARCHIVES…Sorry for the trubbles….

The composition you are listening to is an electronic sandwich of aural preparations. It was recorded in November, 2008 as I geared up to perform at the Composers Decomposed Series in Oakland, California. All sounds were played live to tape, processed through a Frac-Rack unit, with additional electronics, tape loops and auxiliary effects piled on at the Loach Crypt. This recording represents Volume one in the Modular Graveyard Series. An ongoing foray into the world of atmospheric experiments, thought tunnels and mental cleansing by way of the Modular Synthesizer. The original output was distributed to a system of four speakers in cardboard tombstones and one stereo public address system.
