TEC_TONICS

July 12, 2012 § Leave a comment

Hello. I’ve made an 8tracks dedicated to some of the electronic music which has, over the years, given me the Poe-style tears, both directly and indirectly. We shall know it as TEC_TONICS, because it’s important to feel overwhelmed by beauty from time to time, I think.

Kubrick’s Space Odyssey is, of course, the imagery, partly because astronauts are probably the most iconic visual synonymous with the scientific endeavours and achievements of mankind, and partly because HAL broke my heart (“Daisy, Daisy…”) Also, I was lucky enough to see it at London’s Royal Festival Hall last year with live performances by the Philharmonia Orchestra and Philharmonia Voices, which only served to underscore what a flawless accomplishment it was. I cried my eyes out the second it started, and the fear of never experiencing anything close to it again has left me on a beauty-comedown ever since. Anyway, for your listening (dis)pleasure…

Flatwarming Mix For Me By Nic Stark

June 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

Recently, reader, I was found to be miserable and complaining about the godawful trials of trying to relocate oneself in London. Today, however, I can happily report that my persistence has paid off and I’ll soon be moving to an uncannily suitable flat with two gardens and permission to realise my life-long dream of canine companionship (note: not that which is pictured above as that is Eames’ Case Study House #8, here not for its socio-architectural importance, but illustrative dream home purposes.) My rather particular criteria was further met by total lack of carpet (I don’t like carpet and I can’t stand to touch it as it makes me feel like I feel when I think about the process of dry cleaning i.e. most peculiar,) bath with shower over (I like to rinse) and a private entrance (my entrance is not something I like to share.)

In honour of this great event, Nic Stark of All The Pieces Matter has very kindly made a flatwarming mix just for me (please see below for the tracklist.) Aren’t I a lucky girl, eh? So it’s a big thank you to Nic for marking this fortunate event with the joyous gift that is music, and it’s a big thank you to me for all the dedicated hard work I put in that has finally paid off (well done, me!) And if this isn’t the winter of my discontent, I expect you can refer to me, permanently, as Fifi ‘D-Fens’ Wilson.

Enjoy!
