Michael A Cosma
As I lean over the edge of the counter I throw up thick chunks of blue speckled vomit. I head outside and the bus pulls into the front yard. This is a strange dream. Credits: Dan Richert, Fluxus Fone Project, Contagion, Midsummer Nights Germination Special Project Loops, Michael Cosma Guest Artist. Genre: Green Alien.
Chimpanzee Orchestra Revisited
The ape enclosure was once again given the opportunity to show whether or not man is the only primate to make music. This time, we gave the chimps digital instruments, and this was the result. Is it music? Is it noise? Is it a combination of both? Who knows?! Beauty (including the definition of music) is in the eye of the beholder. Credits: various loops by Past members, D. Howse and crt.. Genre: Noise.
Buzzsaw & The Shavings
Ein Stückwerk Nummer 7708
The historians of the Institute upon the Unter den Linden in Berlin are seemingly unimpeded in their motions to derive yet further works of a dubious musical pedigree from the sandy earth of the Mark Brandenburg and admit no censure to intrude upon their operations. The very latest recovery is rapidly determined to be no older than the last century, composed in the age of an accelerating sense of nation and nationality, the score a contending converse and competition of a thousand voices each desiring to be primary in its own domain and unexposed to the mastery of some foreign voice. Some of these voices spoke in a rather beguiling manner to a nationalistic youth of Serbia, were momentarily heeded, then scorned, and again amassed by a Black Hand when word of a visit by some Archduke to Sarajevo is discovered. Credits: Includes Hal McGee Open Loops, also includes Scott Carr, Omnitechnomatrix and Cystem Loops and 10 Years Infection Project Loops by Carpet Glue Unlimited. . Genre: Experimental.
In the Depths of an Unknown Ocean
On a faraway planet made up of deadly hydrocarbons, where one whiff of the air would kill an unprotected human instantly, we take our submarine down into the depths of a nearby sea. In this ocean made up of methane and ammonia and other lethal chemicals, we discover the undeniable truth that exists in all of the universe. Life persists, no matter the odds. This is obviously a message of hope, as well as a journey of delight and wonder. Ear goggles are mandatory on this one. Credits: Various loops by Dave Fuglewicz. Genre: Alien Audio.
Land Of Eloi
Germanys spacerock band Eloy were widely regarded as at there best in there early days with albums such as Inside and Floating. Here's just a little of their flavor i came up with from that time period (70's) ....hopefully ..... featuring driving guitars ( by yours truly) and hammond organ which are loops by the way. Credits: 10 years infection project - SoLaRiS. Genre: Space Rock.
What is the penultimate proof of intelligence? Some would say technology; others would say morality. I for one would think that the best way to tell if a species is sentient and intelligent would be by listening to their music. If a species makes music, and it sounds like something more than beating two rocks against a hollow log, then that to me would be proof of intelligent life. Enjoy this one, and keep watching the skies, the alien orchestra might be closer than you think! Credits: International Garbageman loops. Genre: Alien Audio.
Michael A Cosma
The Darkwave has descended. You approach the house and sense the ultrabright colors - it's breathing expanding - the room is alive. Your voice is not your own and reveals many colors. I think you know this place.

Genre: Awesome Audio.

Buzzsaw & The Shavings
A Nordic Apex on the Motorväg near Gävle
After a lengthy swim that only Shavings might accomplish behind wheels over the waves of the Baltic, skirting past Bornholm and alighting with practiced grace upon Ystad, the contest resumes upon the Motorväg in the confines of Sweden and at last, all other impulses to victory rapidly flagging near Stockholm, Shaving 1 and 11502 foray northwards in a blur that discerns no leader nor admits advantage to either, and so eager and determined is their competition both neglect to fix attentions over the terminus of the Motorväg in the wilds north of Gävle. The inevitable tangle is intruded upon the massed and socially liberal Nordic cheers of the locality that salute all Shavings as winners and those who endured this series as perhaps something less. Credits: 10 Years Infection Project-Includes loops by Blind Mime Infection, SoLaRiS, and Carpet Glue Unlimited-Also includes International Garbageman Open Loops.. Genre: A Fine How Do U Do.
Lost in Translation
Just a silly little piece about two alien space-faring species that meet on the edge of the Sclopetarius Star Cluster. A battle between the Lycosidae and the Larinioides ensues. One is the winner; the other is reduced to space debris. All over a simple misunderstanding, and the fact that computer-enhanced language translators simply cannot be trusted. Wear your ear goggles and get ready to smile. Credits: Assorted loops by DJ Get Yo Fat On, Omnitechnomatrix, Hal McGee, and Diskhead, from the 10 Years Infection Project. Genre: Alien Audio.
Anti Gravity Drive
Just a hint of the Ozrics/Eloy and ZZ Top maybe! >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> PsychedelicSpacerocking Some guitar of mine in here ,mostly the melodic lead and the lead synth i played on the Korg Micro X. PLAY LOUD! Credits: 10 years infection project - SoLaRiS. Genre: Psychedelic.
