    The potential for molestation at ambient sleep parties does seem quite high.

    Some background on the origins of the phenomenon.

    I have been using Thomas Köner's Daikan for falling a sleep lately. It's weirdly satisfying. This practically melody- and rhythm-less 'music', that (as far as I can word it) only relies on very precise, slowly shifting frequencies and still manages to formulate an aesthetic that elicits a very specific (physical/mental/...) response. Maybe I should head over to the drone-thread.

    So we put on our first self promoted ambient/drone gig at an anarchist collective on Saturday. 3 local live acts and DJ. Reasonable crowd, good vibes.

    Hammocks, beanbags and cups of tea a real possibility next time. Mix based on the night to come in the near future

Imagery is ambient too.
    Sort-of Netflix for destressing:

    Somewhere between Eric Satie and Bill Evans, as they write. Quite amazing.
