MMM: Mabon Mess 9/21/14

Photo: What happens when Murphy and I think too much alike for the music on Murphy's Magic Mess. "Turtle mode." Poor Kate.(Editor’s note: We are playing a little catch up with play lists. We apologise for the delays.) The Autumnal Equinox, Mabon, has arrived. The day before the celestial event Murf, *K8, and Phil put this show together for your listening enjoyment.

The picture to the left should be explained. Murf and Phil have been doing the show together for nearly six years. *K8 is the newest addition to the Mess. Often times Phil and Murf find themselves thinking along the same lines for show ideas, tracks to play, sometimes even saying the same things in unison. Sometimes these incidences scare *K8. This particular picture was taken after Phil commented to Murf that on his way into the studio he was thinking that some Lindie Lila would be great for the show, Murf had picked a Lindie Lila track for the show! And then they both spelled something out for *K8 in stereo. After which Phil said to her, “After five years with Murf, you too will starting thinking like us.” Thus, she hid inside her shirt. Going “Turtle” as she called it.

Mruphy’s Magic Mess, 28 July 2013

ad bannerMurf, *K8 and Phil bring you two hours of new age and Pagan music every Sunday morning on KZUM in Lincoln, NE from 9am to 11am.

This week seemed to be a little strange with the studio equipment. Players not firing, CDs stopping after only 20 seconds of play. Mercury has gone direct, so it wasn’t an astrological incident. No, we discovered the reason when Murf told us what she had lined up on her master disc for the second hour. Scroll down through the play list and surely you will see what was up, too.

Managing to squeeze the show into just over two hours, RevKess brings you a selection of New Age and Pagan music, but with a different twist. 1-2 tracks per artists instead of three, and a story thrown in their for a little bit of extra fun. As all the programming on the Pagan-Musings Podcast Channel is constantly evolving, who knows where the next edition will bring you!

Speaking of future editions, before we give you the set list, here’s a sneak peak at what is coming your way in August. On Sunday the 11th, Brian Henke visits with RevKess about his music career, shares some of his inspirations and his music.

MPBTRadbanner

RevKess hopes that you have been enjoying this series of video bonuses for Musica Pagani. the first edition of those bonuses was rap and hip hop, the second edition being a trek around the globe with some foreign language music. This edition visits the genre of Space or Ambient music. With some techno thrown in for fun.

Some of the music that you find in this posting is be artists that PMPChannel has permission to play in podcast, from them you will hear more on either Musica Pagani or in the music segments of other programs. The rest are artists that RevKess has stumbled upon when searching for new music to add to his private collection as well as the music archives of PMPChannel.

Sensitive Chaos – Seeker After Patterns – Seeker After Patterns  All of Sensitive Chaos is being added to the PMPChannel music archives. Be listening for them if you enjoy this video.

From 1988, part of the Crystal Suite release from Steven Halpern – Crystal Suite 

Scott Helland is one half of Frenchy and the Punk. He’s been a recording artists longer than he has known Frenchy (Sam). Here is a sample from his Motion Sickness CD from 1999. 

Julian H. Mulder has several ambient space pieces available, here is one of them. 

Robert Christopher shows that some ambient music can be creepy dark with his “Haunted Sky”.

*shivers* After that creepy track we need something nice and soothing.  How about some crystal singing bowls? Here is Spiral Sound of Sound Crystal Bowl Choir with their “So Ham”.  You might want to turn your speakers up a bit for this.

“Gratitude” from Paradiso and Rasamayi’s first album together, 3rd Eye Rising.  You can read RevKess’s review of this album and their second album on RevKess Reviews.

The original intent of the Musica Pagani Video Bonuses was to showcase some of the wonderful music available on YouTube and other online video sources and to post to this blog once a month. RevKess has since revised that plan. Postings of the Video Bonuses will be random and appear no less than once a month and no more often than once a week. The appearance of the series will depend on time and what RevKess comes across in his random searches for music and videos.
