neither Space Music: The Black Dog, Heinrich Dressel

I believe I’ve only mentioned The Black Dog in passing here, but the long-running UK electronic act certainly deserves mention here. They’ve been active a good quarter century at this point, helping to pioneer the sound of 90s IDM and

Duneplanet-featured Space Music: Roly Porter, Tleilaxu and Dune Music

I’m well into my re-read of Frank Herbert’s “Dune” for its 50th anniversary, so I thought I’d highlight some Space Music that helps me immerse myself in the universe. Forget the official film scores, because our trajectory to the planet

Monoton-feature Space Music: Monoton, Galactic Nightmare

As our sonic voyage through cosmos continues, let us first consider the deep, hypnotic soundscapes of Monoton. Monoton is the work of Austrian interdisciplinary communication researcher Karl Becker. For decades, he’s kept his hands busy in just about every aspect

czarface2-featured Space Music: CZARFACE Dons the Hip Hop Armor

Somehow I missed out on CZARFACE’s 2013 debut self-titled album, but the release of 2015′s “Every Hero Needs a Villain” has really taken over my earbuds this week. CZARFACE consists of  Wu-Tang Clan member Inspectah Deck and underground hip hop

Art-Dept-Album-art-feature Space Music: John C. Lilly & Art Department

If you’ve listened to STBYM over the years, you’ve probably picked up on our fascination with John C. Lilly (1915-2001), the American physician and neuroscientist best known for his often-controversial research into the nature of consciousness. His 1960s work with

battybladerunner-feature Space Music: The Ballad of Roy Batty, Blanck Mass

If your listening tastes, like mine, lean towards electronic-heavy, futuristic DJ mixes, then I’m sure you’ve heard a Roy Batty sample or two in your music. You’ll remember Rutger Hauer’ Batty as the vicious, philosophic replicant from 1982′s “Blade Runner”

spacemusic-feature Space Music: The Spotify Playlist

I’ve been doing these Space Music posts for going on 6 years now, covering the odd intersection of space exploration and music, but mostly using it as a place to highlight the sort of experimental, electronic sounds that expand my

christine-feature Space Music: Ecstatic Sole, Ataraxia

It’s a very busy week here at STBYM, but I always try to save room for some nutritious Space Music. First up, French electronic duo Christine just released their new EP “Ecstatic Sole” and it’s an invigorating electro release consisting

avrokosm-featured Space Music: Antoni Maiovvi’s ‘Avrokosm’

I’ve only mentioned Antoni Maiovvi in passing here, so I thought it appropriate to shine the Space Music spotlight on the British synth disco artist’s offerings, particularly his recent efforts in the cosmic and the uncanny. His 2014 album “Avrokosm”

PCA-featured Space Music: Pye Corner Audio, Stars & Quasars

I’ve been a fan of Pye Corner Audio (AKA Martin Jenkins) for a while now. In a previous post, I described his work as “a journey through time, equal parts classic electronic soundtrack nostalgia and cutting-edge ambiance.” In the past,
