To Catch a Thief

Tune in this Thursday (Nov 3) to SoundScape from 9 pm on YVFM 99.1 or get it streamed live from the website.

This week's ambient artist is Shinjuku Thief. Founder of the Melbourne-based experimental and ambient label Dorobo, the prolific Darrin Verhagen has recorded under many different guises over the years and drawn from a highly eclectic range of sound worlds including industrial, ethnic and techno music. He is also known as Shinjuku Thief.

Asian samples including some spine-chilling chants are blended with distorted beats, brass, silky smooth bass guitar and sundry other sounds to create an album that's by turns raucous and restrained, amusing and awe-inspiring.

The Goon Show this week will be 'The Missing Boa Constrictor'.
