[Repeated from Wednesday 11am.] Robin The Fog presents a series of late-night, deep listening soundtracks for our current era of isolation. This week's episode is guest curated by London-based musician and sound artist Janine A'Bear. Janine has created an electroacoustic journey to encourage the states of consciousness involved with imagination and relaxation to stimulate creativity in the listener, using various solfeggio and delta tones in combination with home sampled gongs, Tibetan bowls, chimes, shamanic drums, a wooden flute and rattles, recorded and digitally enhanced or processed. The final result is a unique genuine cosmic dronetopia. Enjoy this piece lying down comfortably with both hands on your heart, eyes closed. Further details at: robinthefog.com.
