Nisarga-data ("The India")
Dozens of samples later, my first epic piece in some time, "Nisarga-data ("The India)" is an homage to the great Indian sage, the non-dualist Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj. "When you are no longer attached to anything, you have done your share. The rest will be done for you." "The core of Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj's teaching is the knowledge of one's own true identity. This knowledge is indeed the pivotal point around which moves everything." Ramesh Balsekar Credits: Jeremy Gluck - 10 years infection project - Dave Fuglewicz loops.. Genre: World Fusion.
Back in the ancient past, when humans first began to build boats and explore the unknown oceans, they found a mysterious island far out to sea. It's discovery soon led to an avoidance of the place, for it was inhabited by a race of giants, each a mighty warrior and all who met them were soon destroyed. They were fierce and fearless in battle. In the end the long-lived race of giant warriors were not defeated by any mortal enemies, but by the keeper of all living things; time. They were lost due to the passing of the ages. Ear goggles are mandatory, and I hope you find this mix an audio feast. Credits: loops by bhudgins and Mental Anguish. Genre: Experimental Post Rock.

A Moment of Sarcasm on the CA 55
I had sincerely hoped that some unwitting and self-absorbed motorist might blunder into the wheeled path of a particular Jetta and excite a wry and sardonic observation of the driver to which I must uncertainly and ineptly reply, defusing a moment and bringing solace to apprehension to the rearward of the vehicle. A gin and tonic, that momentary reward, is but little more than nine minutes ahead. Credits: Includes loops by Cystem and Omnitechnomatrix. Genre: Rock & a Hard Place.

Saga of a Northern Clime
Those of us who live in the northern reaches of this continent understand the importance that the change of seasons plays with our mental well-being. This is a funny little song I managed to put together, with some great dialogue by someone with an obvious northern sense of humor. If it is hot and humid and sticky where you are, this song just might help cool you off. Credits: six loops by Daryl Westfall, mangled by yours truly.. Genre: Improvisational.
Round and Round they go! All guitars by yours truly and most of the synths too with the aid of ' Imposcar ' and 'Adventus' ' DSK' VST's Credits: Mental Anguish Open Loops, 10 years infection project - SoLaRiS. Genre: Psychedelic.
David's loops just fit beautifully somehow with Hannah's vocal and Don's guitar provides spurring counterpoint. Credits: words by Edgar Alan Poe, music by Hannah Galli, Bryan Baker. Hannah Galli: vocal; Bryan Baker: acoustic guitar; David Fuglewicz: synthesizers; Don Campau: classical guitar. 10 Years Infection project and Don Campau guest artist project.. Genre: Folk Experimental.
Buzzsaw & The Shavings
A Weighty Sigh and the Stettiner Haff
Amongst the numerous and innumerable spheres in which Zeal attaches to Admiration and Regard are the ardent pangs that are fixed upon any glance of the lagoons and the river estuaries of the Baltic, rather especially those a few days, a few warlords and a few conferences in the Livadia Palace rather more than a few years ago did not completely transfer from the authority of Berlin. Credits: Includes loops by Cystem, Omnitechnomatrix and Scott Carr. Genre: Improvisational.
We Are All Travelers in This Place
Traveling by train means one will soon tire of the scenery and turn inwards towards one's fellow companions. I met a number of individuals with interesting stories to tell. Sometimes, your fellow travelers don't even know they are telling a story, for they describe their lives by simple interaction with the world around them. Slap on the ear goggles and enjoy the ride. NOTE: The echo in this mix was added for effect; just so you know that the acoustics on a train are NOT that great. Credits: Mental Anguish loops, and various found sound wavs, recorded by ZM. Genre: Noise.

And then Anticipating a Visitor
I might relate at length the anticipations but then a story is left more than half untold. Comments will comment and thence complete a tale. Credits: Includes loops by David Fuglewicz and Mental Anguish. Genre: Mood Music.
On a recent foray deep into the American Southwest, certain long-standing promises and predictions were met, with much ado about everything. Ear goggling highly recommended. Credits: Various loops by Mental Anguish, voice loops by Buzzsaw and Zebra Mann. Genre: Avant Garde.
