Surgeon (ambient set) at Freerotation 12/7/13

It was a rare treat to be asked to perform an ambient set at Freerotation 2013 so I decided to present a selection of classic chill-out room favorites alongside newer gems.
No dreary industrial drones, just colourful, uplifting psychedelia.

It was like entering an alternate reality going through the small door into the Yurt structure which hosted the chill out room at Freerotation with rugs & cushions on the floor and oil lamp projections. To hear the sound more clearly I decided to perform my set sat on the floor in front of the speakers instead of behind them as a DJ normally does. Sat in a meditation posture with my spine straight gave me a serene, calm feeling during the whole set. Also, it felt more inclusive to be sat with the audience, facing the same direction to enjoy the music together with them.

Neil Landstrumm live at House Of God 11th November 1995

Here's a real treat for you-
Found in an old box of tapes here is the recording of Neil Landstrumm's live set at House Of God, Birmingham back in November 1995.
The recording alone will melt your face off.

Can you IMAGINE what it was like actually BEING THERE?

Comments from Neil- ‘Surgeon just mailed me this tape recording of a live set i did at the House of God in Birmingham in 1995… If memory serves me correct that was the first time I performed there. Anyways its live on hardware (as was the only choice then) rather nasty but still fun..Tr-909, S950,Tb-303, Sh-101, Sequential Circuits Pro-One, Tr-606,, Atari ST and some other crap….The Peacefrog and Sativae acid years….'
