our first show back after our annual summer break is a sad return to the airwaves, as while we were away we learned of the passing of our friend and colleague, dmitry vasilyev. dmitry was an organiser, podcaster, music and mushroom enthusiast, expert, curator of the monochrome vision record label, and author of the massive treatise on italian experimental music, viva italia. in this edition we pay tribute to dmitry with a mix of his monochrome vision releases, as well as a few tracks from the field-recording based the sound ecology: range compilation released some years back on his other label project, nitkie. dmitry has been steadily sending us the releases featured in this edition since our first meeting back in 2009, and to be honest, the massive, growing pile of amazing sounds to explore was so intimidating that we never managed to get most of them on the air. we’re devastated that this is what it took, but we’re very happy to finally be able to present this great label’s body of work.
a massive tribute release, entitled monochrome visions, is being organised by frans de waard, and will be released on september 18th on the kormdigitaal bandcamp page. only 2 days after making the call for contributions there were already over 50 tracks. when it’s available you’ll find it here:
meanwhile, as promised on the air, here are further links for information on dmitry and his many projects:
