DETAILS ON THIS SPECIAL PREVIEW PACKAGE:
These tracks comprise a sneak preview of our upcoming album, 'The Insurrection (January 6th, 2021)' and represents the first two hours of the work. The entire work will be approximately 12 hours long (similar to an audiobook).
This playlist (sans the bonus tracks) is available as all-one-file, in addition to the last hour climax of the program at our archive.org
The entire work will be a MetaMedia work of collage and remixed audio work, made up of countless pieces from the media environment at large, some of them from years past long before the events in question took place, but all about the events of January 6th, 2021 and the violent attack that took place on the Capitol building, as instigated by then-President Donald Trump, as well as the aftermath and fallout of this event, both in the media, the culture and in politics.
This project represents the fruit of a year-and-a-half of intense creative work on my part, under the auspice of 'NCN' (my creative project) having to do with this subject matter. As always, you do not have to pay anything to obtain any of this material.
This album is also on SoundCloud. Some tracks of this playlist have been dis-allowed by SoundCloud. A more complete version of this playlist is at our Bandcamp:
Portions of this overall work were adapted and much furtherly developed from some sequences from our January 2021 release 'Agent of Chaos':

Disclaimer: This program is not for sale and is not meant for sale and never will be for sale. It is meant to be listened to, and taken, as a whole work. All derived material used herein is accredited (as best we can), transformed and used fairly, NOT for the purpose of profit, but rather for self-expression, creative therapy, and the cultural enrichment and education of the public at large. A prerequisite monetary fee is NOT required to download or stream this program. Any proceeds collected through this page are therefore considered to be gratuities or donations given in appreciation for this work and/or the creative effort behind it, or to help support the expenses of that creative effort.
It should be noted that this album does not represent literal and factual truth about that day, nor do any of the tracks representing the event in this work, but are meant mostly to convey the feeling of the thing and how it FELT that day and we, like most of the country, got that third hand. We were not there.
Nevertheless, it was scary AF.
The goal of the project is in part journalistic, documentative and research-oriented, but it also largely artistic in its intent and execution.
Therefore, some of the events depicted may be, in addition to being (obviously) editorialized and remixed, may also be out of sequence to how they actually occured and anachronistic samples may be used for effect.
Overall, this work can be considered a dramatic interpretation of the events it describes. Please do not hesitate to do your own research if you have any doubts as to the facts of this case.
As always: Copy what you want. Use it as you wish.

WHAT NCN DOES AND WHY:
Our serio-comic MetaMedia collage-based audio mixes play bi-weekly Thurs. and Sun. from (generally/usually) 4pm (we go on no later than 7pm) until 12am (all times PACIFIC) and can be heard then through:
Our unique programs explore universal subjects and themes as seen through our own individual and subjective 'lens'. The best of both worlds!
Through a creative, artistic process of 'Collect/Select/Connect/Present', NCN collates a broad variety of many thematically relevant media clips, presenting our own editorial social commentary as well as cultural artifacts from the underground DIY remix media culture, synthesizing these elements into psychedelic stream-of-consciousness audio journeys.
We seek to help listeners better understand and make sense of issues covered in the media DIN that we are all subjected to and also to hopefully make them aware of certain music and other worthwhile artists that they would otherwise never be aware of or come across.
