Elsewhereness revisited is an occasional feature documenting the drift at the margins: ambient gasbagging, tube-d, cloud-ed, and camp-ed up, complete with companion mix, Elsewhereness revisited #7.    Ambient/folk-gaze maven, Benoît Pioulard, has Lignin Poise, on Beacon Sound.

Techno’s Outer Limits :: April 2017

First transmission of 2017 from Techno’s Twilight Zone of EPs/12″s and LP, with notes in the margins.

SuONOIO Synthesizer (Gear review)

Looking more like a VGA card than a Moog, the SuONOIO is capable of pumping out all sorts of glitchy noise and madness.
