ELDRITCH LIGHT ORCHESTRA - Dreamlands


Another ambient piece, this time created using Arturia's Pigments synth, a ticking clock, and some homebrewed feedback. Originally I intended this to be the backing for a reading of the famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe but though it would be shame to talk over it! 





COMMENTARY CLUB 026 - The Cabinet of Dr Caligari


In this show we are revisiting one of the early classics of cinema, The Cabinet of Dr Caligari (1920). Starring Conrad Veidt, this silent German Expressionist masterpiece is a genuine piece of movie history and has just celebrated its one hundredth birthday!

WHAT THE SCARE-CROW SAID by Nicholas Vachel Lindsay



Read and animated by Mr Jim Moon, folk horror drones from the Eldritch Light Orchestra


What the Scare-crow Said
by Nicholas Vachel Lindsay

The dim-winged spirits of the night
Do fear and serve me well.
They creep from out the hedges of
The garden where I dwell.

I wave my arms across the walk.
The troops obey the sign,
And bring me shimmering shadow-robes
And cups of cowslip-wine.

Then dig a treasure called the moon,
A very precious thing,
And keep it in the air for me
Because I am a King.
