ZOMBY: DIGITAL FLORA

"Digital Flora": languid chimes; frost-encrusted flowers swaying in an ammonium breeze; purple-tinged anemonae rippling in the uncertain currents, their tiny fingers the colour of cyanates. Reminds me (ever-so-slightly) of some of B12's old records - tho this is urbanised in a different way; Dalston, not Detroit. A delicate whiff, a hint of some new form of Electronic Chamber Music; the beginnings of The Nu Baroque.


Dropping soon on Brainmath.

Some Zomby promo-tasters here.

Anyone else noticing how "Tron" has crept back onto the ol' cultural radar in the last couple years? Still looks as creepily claustrophic as ever, tho. I remember the Tron video-game they used to have in The Mermaid Hotel in Yeovil. And watching the film one night while tripping - that bit where he jumps down off a wall and smacks dn the trooper at the end of a column of guards, then takes his place. We got caught in a recursive loop watching that scene; must've played it over and over again 15, 20 times, just that 10 second sequence, rewinding the VHS-player until the gears n tape-transport ground themselves into potassium permanganate-coloured powder.

there's a TRON remake on the cards, isn't there? Not sure if it's a re-imagining or a sequel or both... can't beat the old TRon game - got a version on my Mac which is utterly ridiculous and addictive... can't see how the visuals can be improved for the new film though...

Yeah, I think you're right that there's a remake coming. I try not to think about these remakes too much - it distresses me too much lol.

Yeah, I love the colour-palette on the original: dark, yet hyper-lurid. Oppressive.

I'm really pissed there's a r/make of "The Thing" coming.
