The Alchemist Lair
Volume #001: Fractured
When I decided I wanted to add more "on air" time, I had a consideration to make. Do I double down on the Conflux Cornucopia Cerebellum Cocktail Hour, or do I start up something new. In that consideration, I recalled a common theme. That all important "Things said after the word BUT." I really like your show BUT. The common theme was the HEAVY and DARK Stuff. People either didn't want it or wanted MORE of it. So, with that, I created this show, the Alchemist's Lair. This is where I indulge feeding the monster. Play out the dark metallic soundscapes that provide tension and release. The Conflux Cornucopia Cerebellum Cocktail Hour will continue on Saturday nights and will not feature this dark heavy content, but will instead focus on the brighter side of my musical sphere. I'm not exactly sure where this proverbial "line in the sand" will be drawn. I suspect the lighter side of show may collide with the heavier side of that show. Obviously, the old content is the old content. If you're one of those rare inidividuals who can follow my extremes....bonus for now have two shows to follow.
