Saluki Regicide returns with another selection of haunted head music to disturb your inner child. These are some very strange recordings. 20th Century sound artifacts are processed and manipulated into something wholly new, and at times unsettling. Unquiet architectures of auditory nostalgia, inhabiting some remote site between melody and microsound, hounded by history, ambushed by alchemy.

The Webbed Hand "Rain" series in now graced by a contribution from Djinnestan. Much like the shorter works of Djinnestan, this 74-minute piece is subtle and enchanted. As if in a dream you find yourself strolling in a fairytale forest, dark and misty, peopled by the figments of childhood imaginings. This album is ideal for meditation, trance-work, and quiet activities. It is recommended that you play it at low volume, as it is meant to be listened to peripherally, not directly....

A project which began as a spinoff of Saluki Regicide, but which took on a personality of its own as a pattern began to emerge. This is a peculiar sound art of a very diverse nature, but unified by the presence of Shortwave signals. These bizarre tracks may bend your mind, if you are in a susceptible state. An eclectic CD alternating between abstract and rhythmic, this body of work is dedicated to those who get the warm-n-fuzzies from hunching over shortwave radios, grooving on static and...

This is a collection of tracks made before and after the work that went into Don't Mind if I Do .

Kittenhead is the latest long-form (CD-length) production by Djinnestan, departing significantly from the Rain series and Purr. In many ways, it defies easy categorization. It is very ambient, but contains rhythms. It is dark, yet at the same time whimsical. It includes acoustic instruments and vocals, but they have been processed virtually beyond recognition. Nonetheless it is a subtle and pleasant listen. Djinnestan is an ambient recording project of C.P. McDill and Aria Nadii. The audio...

Typically the recordings in this series are minimalistic soundscapes, with motifs played out cyclically and repetitively, rather than progressively, in order to induce hypnotic states. Tribe of Astronauts "Rain 1" is a pleasing wash of white noises, cycling in slow rhythms. Waxing and waning...
