Sypha Nadon on the radio

This is older news, but on the week of August 9th a Sypha Nadon song ("Sonic Lwa," off the album Threnody for Zumb Zumb) was played as part of the Pinwheels of Your Mind program on WZBC 90.3 FM Newton, along with several other artists from the This Plague of Dreaming netlabel, such as To Repel Ghosts and The Threshold People.

It has also recently come to our attention that a video on YouTube uses an old Sypha Nadon song ("The Ignored") as it's musical backdrop. The video may be watched here:

New Album: Bryce Clayton Eiman: "I'm Not My Type" [MZR007]

Mauve Zone Recordings is pleased to announce the release of "I'm Not My Type" by the talented "drums & drones" experimental musician Bryce Clayton Eiman. This will be the first of two releases, the next one being "Mono" (due out next month at the time of this announcement). We're very excited (both intellectually & sexually) by this release and we're sure you will be also.

From the liner notes: "Most of my drone I do onto a Yamaha MT120, using a chrome cassette with the Dolby switched to off. I record samples on a Casio SK5 and run them through a distortion pedal, a one-second digital delay (weight: 5 lbs), and a Yamaha R100. Basically, nothing made in the past 15 years -- and yet the sounds I come up with on that rig are soooo fucking cool. On the other hand, I love playing around with GarageBand, especially the preset loops: so quick and so predictable and so very clean. That program accounts for most my dancey material. I personally think that the difference between my get-up and software is the same as that between standard and automatic transmissions. Using a stick, a driver feels like part of the car; one the other hand, it's hard to strip gears with an automatic. Life isn't digital, but information never dies."

The album, as always, may be downloaded for free from the MZR page at Internet archive, here:

Afro Noise

Sypha Nadon recently sent its MySpace page in as a submission for record label Susan Lawly's "Afro Noise" project. It is now featured on the Afro Noise blog here:


This is older news, but a few months ago Sypha Nadon got its very own MySpace page, which can be found here:

At the moment the page features four songs, including an older track ("Ginen") plus a new version of "Threnody for Zumb Zumb" and two new bonus tracks avaliable only at the Sypha Nadon MySpace page: "Song for Oerg-8" and "Andy Warhol." These are the newest Sypha Nadon songs since the three that appeared on "Malkunofat Disko."

Also of interest in regards to MySpace is the new Threshold People page, which can be found here:

This Plague of Dreaming also has a new blog worth checking out:
