AJ HOLMES' fantastic mix of 'Alomo' is now available as one half of a 7" single here, alongside another remix by Mr. Holmes:



xylitol will be contributing music and/or sounds to this radiophonic experiment:

RADIO MIND

The Old Lookout Gallery Broadstairs,
Harbour Masters building, Broadstairs Harbour,The Pier, (right next to the beach)
Broadstairs, United Kingdom

Opening 2pm Friday 2nd September

Exhibition runs 2nd September - 6th September 2011. Opening Times: Fri - Tues 10 - 4pm.

The Old Lookout is the chapel of a religious pirate radio cult whose radio station Radio Mind, is relayed by its' Missionaries across the golden sands of this popular seaside resort.

Inspired by an obscure group of early 20th century Anglican clerics with a shared interest in telepathy, psychic research and psychology as paths of divine/human communication, Radio Mind will take over the Old Lookout gallery, Broadstairs as an outpost from which to re-open the paths of transmission through performance, broadcast and participation.

Radio Artist Magz Hall specialises in creating sound and radio events outside conventional studio settings and this micro transmission investigates the shifting terrains of the transcendent and the quotidian through new communications technologies. Drawing on early 20th Century experimental Protestantism, historical and mythic seafaring cults and the powerful mythology of the radiophonic aether, notions of radio, piracy and the religious imaginary will be brought into question.

This radio installation will broadcast from an 18th century fisherman's hut in Broadstairs harbour, its beams and panels salvaged from scrapped vessels, and will broadcast across the immediate beach area as a micro-FM broadcast to be transmitted by beach-mission cultists baring radio receivers.

XYLITOL MUSIC PLAYED BY OTHER PEOPLE
CD ONE features WOEBOT, UM, BELBURY POLY, THE ASTERISM, KEK-W and the ORCHESTRA INTANGIBLE 73 and SCULPTURE
and

Because I've been too lazy to finish off any new material, I've roped in some of my favourite artists to either remix tracks from my previous 'Functionary' and 'Error Bursts In Transmissions' albums, or to do something interesting of their own with bits and fragments I never quite managed to polish off myself.

And the results are, if I may say so, flabbergastingly marvellous, and what's more I never once had to toil over any new material myself.

Released, as with previous Xylitol releases, across a set of two 3" mini cds, each painstakingly packaged in a unique custom multi-level sleeve with inserts, small bits of paper, photographs, etc.


featuring audacious sleevenotes from Martin C (Woofah 'zine / BTI.RIP blog) and sinister / uncanny photographic inserts by Nina Power.

and, in case you didn't get that, they are available now, Now, NOW!


(no they're not, all gone.)

and soon via the Strange Attractor shoppe
