“Bound by a fearless curiosity for sound design and experimentation, composer and location audio engineer Surachai explores the extremities of metal music through a modular lens. Native Instruments has long played a key guiding role; evolving his sonic aesthetic via a combination of software sound libraries and virtual environments.”

Workspace and Environment: Jack Dangers / Meat Beat Manifesto via Dwell Magazine

Sometimes two (or in this case, three) of my interests intersect nicely…

Jack Dangers and Ellen Corrigan had one cat, a load of oversize vintage synthesizers, and a music library of more than 10,000 records to consider when they decided to build a new home in Mill Valley, California. It was a long haul, but not a long distance, to the finished result: a two-story structure with a standing-seam metal roof, nestled along a cascading hillside where their previous house once stood, with views of Mount Tamalpais to the northwest.

David Lynch on Having a Setup


Some mornings, in a perfect world, you might wake up, have a coffee, finish meditation, and say, “Okay, today I’m going into the shop to work on a lamp.” This idea comes to you, you can see it, but to accomplish it you need what I call a “setup.” For example, you may need a working shop or a working painting studio. You may need a working music studio. Or a computer room where you can write something. It’s crucial to have a setup, so that, at any given moment, when you get an idea, you have the place and the tools to make it happen.

When you don’t have a setup, there are many times when you get the inspiration, the idea, but you have no tools, no place to put it together. And the idea just sits there and festers. Over time, it will go away. You didn’t fulfill it—and that’s just a heartache.

The Black Queen: Fever Daydream (Album Debut!)

Finally released, Fever Daydream by The Black Queen…

“What’s most impressive about Fever Daydream is how wonderfully the whole album plays out. Unlike even some top-tier electronic music, this isn’t just a collection of like-minded songs; The Black Queen clearly wanted to craft an album, and that shows masterfully throughout. Fever Daydream is an incredibly diverse listen, where melodies and moods may carry over throughout the album, but each song is its own distinct animal.” New Noise Magazine


Highly recommended debut work from Greg Puciato (Dillinger Escape Plan), Josh Eustis (Telefon Tel Aviv, NIN) and Steven Ryan (Massive, purposely hidden from the internet reputation)
