Hidden desires

Do we not all come forth from darkness? From the unknown, the abyss of existence? And do we not desire, even if only sometimes, to return to these dark, unknown origins?

And isn’t this why, at least those times that you think of it, you tune into Het Schimmengebied on Radio Tonka? Every first Thursday of the month from 23.00 till 0.00 at 92.0 FM (in The Hague) and www.radiotonka.org?

Tonight again! With a refined selection of electronic music, coming straight from the grooves of black vinyl records, carefully mixed live by yours truly, Duistere Bardo!

Lost moments

Tonight, after my absence last month, there will be a new edition of Het Schimmengebied on Radio Tonka. This time I will dive into my record bag again, and sacrifice the grooves of a refined selection of old vinyl to the needles of the record players in the studio.

Don’t mis it! In a short moment from 23.00 till 0.00 at Radio Tonka via www.radiotonka.org (and 92.0 FM in The Hague)!

Falling

Phantasms linger in the hidden corners of our minds, while we cherish the desire for escape from the hellish vortex we are collapsing into, failure after failure, attempt after attempt to embrace the light that is fading in front of us. Not sure whether it is dying out, or moving away from us in a free fall into darkness.

Tonight you can embrace the darkness that surrounds you, as the night passes over with a new edition of Het Schimmengebied with Duistere Bardo on Radio Tonka. From 23.00 till 0.00 CET on www.radiotonka.org and through 92.0 FM transmitting in the ethereal realms The Hague.

Industrialization

In less than an hour the next edition of Het Schimmengebied will start on Radio Tonka. Expect industrialized sounds and chaotic rhythms brought to you live by Duistere Bardo, unpredictable as always!

Tune in this Thursday night from 23.00 till 0.00 CET on www.radiotonka.org or 92.0 FM in The Hague to not miss out!

The Eternal Return

After months, Duistere Bardo returns from reality back to ‘Het Schimmengebied’ on Radio Tonka to accompany the last shimmering rays of the sun with nocturnal sounds of the shadow world.

So tune in tonight from 23.00 till 0.00 to 92.0 FM in The Hague, or www.radiotonka.org elsewhere, and let yourself be embraced by the nightly frequencies of ‘Het Schimmengebied’.

Crackling sounds

What better way to start the new year than by drinking a glass of fine red wine, while listening to the crackling sounds of the greatest democracy on the planet collapsing under its own weight and tuning in to an intermediate edition of Het Schimmengebied on Radio Tonka?

Honestly, after sounding the horns of doom for years, I am not sure whether to just embrace the moment and shout “told you so” with a careful selection of nihilist industrial noise, or just tune out of the moment and play soothing ambient music while pretending everything is just fine, like most people have been doing all this time.

Whatever it will be, be sure not to miss out, and turn on your radio receivers at 92.0 FM in The Hague, or www.radiotonka.org elsewhere on this collapsing earth, between 23.00 and 0.00 CET.

Mirror Self

Tonight will be the final edition again of Het Schimmengebied, for a couple of months. Next months a new series of Rumoriii will take over the time slot of Het Schimmengebied. But tonight there will still be music to stir the darkest parts of your being. Brought to you by Duistere Bardo.

Tune in from 23.00 till 0.00 CET on Radio Tonka via 92.0 FM in The Hague, and www.radiotonka.org
