19:00 - 21:30
DJ Steve Brown will be with us to present his November edition of the Sonic Landscapes radio show, along with a mix by Bryan Michael (Bryan Alka) from the band Alka. Steve will be interviewing & covering their newest album **Regarding the Auguries**. Bryan's mix delves into the world of Japanese electronic music and having heard it, you are in for a treat. Join our Mixlr chat-room to meet & converse with Bryan Michael Todd Steponick & Erika Tele from Alka. ‘Regarding The Auguries’ is the portentously-titled fourth album from Philadelphia electronic unit Alka. It is an album that reflects back our myriad concerns about the world; a teeming, restless work surveying global civil unrest, freak earthly phenomena and a sense that order is slowly being dismantled around us. Although it was recorded long before lockdown, its grim outlook makes it a fitting release during the grip of an existential crisis that has impacted us all. After being a solo project of Bryan Michael since the early 2000s, for ‘Regarding The Auguries’ Alka is re-imagined as a unit of Bryan Michael, visual artist Erika Tele and fellow Philadelphia electronic musician Todd Steponick, a line-up familiar from their recent, pre-lockdown shows.

  • Alka

    Formed in 2000 by Bryan Michael as an outlet for his solo electronic compositions, alka has recently grown in number. Michael recently enlisted the aid of fellow programmer/producer Todd Steponick (At Work, Cloud People) and video artist/vocalist Erika Tele (Aux88, Puzzlebox Records). Both add their own layer of complexity to the mix and assist in live outings. Regular play on college and internet radio stations such as Soma FM have established alka in the electronic underground. alka consistently appears among the Top 5 on Reverbnation’s Electronica Charts for Philadelphia. The Colour of Terrible Crystal will go far to help alka restructure the current limiting boundaries of modern-day electronic music. New album out NOW on Vince Clarke’s VeryRecords. Blending (and bending) electronic styles, alka’s music is vast enough for wide open spaces or condensed urban settings… it is the place where lucidity and obscurity meet.
