of the Hiroshima atomic bomb,begins with a field recording of the
radiation-like crackling of a candle ceremony in Hiroshima Peace Park.

Very interesting mix.
Is it ever going to be released?
At least the releasable part. . .Was this any similar to what was "played" in
Bethnal Green last summer?

in truth,it was another of those nights where the dj's get shunted about due to bad organisation with the live acts etc.i played some of the gagaku (ancient japanese court music) mixed into "in this world" pt1,followed by other minimal abstract pieces but was never really allowed to get into the flow.probably a blessing,as it propelled me to do the idea justice and complete the "after the fireflies" mix which is now playing on touchedRADIO.

Talking of mixing things into previous Cindytalk work,I just loved the bit from "Everybody is Christ" in the Otoya set last May!
