    As I'm sure many have seen already, Basinski's playing in London in September - looking forward to seeing how his music translates live, given the mixed reactions on his thread...

    Playing a 4-6 hour drone/ambient set in the chill out tent of Ireland's most middle class festival next month. Temptation to Wyatt is immense.

    So, we played 6 hours of drone, experimental and ambient at electric picnic - Ireland's premier fancy-pants music festival. We were in a half-tent type thing within the main festival in (one of) the alternative/chill out new agey areas.

    Crystallised a few things Ive been thinking about for a while in terms of performance of this kind of music - that the best audience isn't the seated arty serious types, but the mashed up on drugs types who just want somewhere to lie down - and we had about 60 of them prone in front of us at one stage - probably would've had more except it was pretty cold and there was no heating and no promised bean bags or cushions. Got pretty intense at times, some full on stuff, and people kept coming in and asking us what we'd done to the crowd. 'Are they dead'? 'Have you killed them'?

    Made me think about the perfect environment for this kind of thing - and Ive decided - its the opium den. Everyone in a nice warm alcove, pipe in hand, tea and refreshments being served.

    Also considering a drone barge. Just wander the waterways of continental Europe blasting drone out of huge speakers as you crawl across the countryside. Towns and villages could pay you to go away.

    Im in two minds here. The denizens of Britain's inland waterways would potentially offer some entertainment, but Europe gives far more scope. Unfortunately Britain has narrower canals than everybody else, so you end up with a 'narrowboat' that is very small and would never make it across the channel.

    This is my new bible:

    This is the ideal I'm going to aim for with any future DJ sets.

    Drone soundclash where you get more points the less reaction there is. Winner is the one with the most unconscious bodies on the ground at the end.

    The slow release of some kind of tranquilising gas from compressed canisters under the decks. Like the Moscow theatre siege, but more relaxing.

    "Barging Through The Ether"

    Would make a great flyer.
