Esoterica (host) 8:06:44 PM
Rob from Maryland 8:06:48 PM
And the station is back
Esoterica (host) 8:07:09 PM

Bo 8:07:20 PM
Hi Esoterica! You boomeranged :))
Rob from Maryland 8:07:45 PM

Esoterica (host) 8:08:14 PM

Rob from Maryland 8:08:16 PM
but the music is sort of floating in and out
Rob from Maryland 8:08:24 PM
yes I can hear music rn
Rob from Maryland 8:08:59 PM
the music 'floating'/wavering could be the station or it could be the actual musical piece
Esoterica (host) 8:09:10 PM
oh ok
Rob from Maryland 8:09:31 PM
while I was typing that last bit, the station went silent for a couple of seconds 1-2x but the 'off music' didn't kick in
Esoterica (host) 8:10:06 PM

this from bandcamp: "After releasing one of the year’s most remarkable records with ‘iki', Japanese pipe-organ builder and sound artist Yosuke Fujita returns with this remarkable 40 minute contribution to our Documenting Sound series, recorded in a cave at the foot of Mt. Fuji and featuring his custom-built pipe organ in duet with a colony of bats indigenous to the area. It’s a beautiful, quietly extraordinary trip. - Boomkat Editions -"
