New directions are encouraged recovering from my condition. “Unconscious Fears And Fantasies” is a 20 minute concept mix inspired by two mental shoots – the first seeing a hypnotherapist who is teaching me positive affirmations – the second having my friend trek to the UK and predicting the best possible outcome. For the former, I am advised to tap into my unconscious mind because as I'm told it believes everything you tell it. In reading literature of this nature such as “You Can Heal Your Life” by Louise L. Hay, I am understanding that areas of the body correlate to feelings, emotions, and pressure points. Rebalancing your brain is an available attribute from EFT, relaxing monopolies of lucky chances spilling from one brain state (unconscious) to the other (conscious). Now I practice a supplementary breathing exercise when anxiety sets in, with an ingrained segment of the therapist's voice appearing when things are overcast. “Unconscious Fears And Fantasies” is also a transposition of the latter's unrelenting darkness stitched with elation – it transcends the high pitched seriousness of Greg Haines' “Marc's Descent” to Olive's rapturously reassuring “You're Not Alone”. The aural physique is very similar to “A Constant Stream”, a forthcoming collaboration.

"Eternal Sands'" works fashion wispy impermanence, always developing and evolving, like the eternal sands of time. That observation notates the name, and a tune I made specially to contrast the cut by Harold Budd & Clive Wright. It's taken from the "Spillage" EP on the Audio Gourmet Netlabel, with remixes from David Tagg, Darren Harper and label boss Spheruleus.

With each original track recorded three years apart, "Spilage" arose from emotional storms, where a close friend was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, self-harming; suicide a nearby exit gate. Of course, this shook me and my parents, but it renewed our closeness as a strong family unit from millions, where instability can be frowned upon. At the time (2007), music production was a keen focus of mine, whereas "Eternal Sands" juxtaposes 2010's off-the-cuff ideas that are born from a necessity to be open with my problems in a universally healing method. There is a stigma attached to mental health that traps understanding in bubbles that aren't always easy to burst. I have spoken openly of my troubles online, usually garnering positive responses. With my mixtapes throughout SubVersion, there is a timeline, and catharsis that is self-perpetuated.

There is another role this set plays - not a replacement, but a more active, disambiguating, fresher companion to "Closing Down". In that mixtape I have periodic directives where I merge in synthesis with the sounds: crashes to synchronize silent mouth movement; screeching noise to trigger a controlled scream; gaps to breathe and prosper. The Monolake track that finalises these 23 minutes instills a counter device, where I hold my breath and exhale to every four beats of the bar.

In concern of the sustenance I try to temper: I will envisage handfuls of words or prepared phrases that I've either written or will become mentally interacted with on the spot. Then, if I'm solitary, the block will reverberate with images of me singing, bellowing or disparaging select objects. Heart rate rises; heavy breathing to contain the imagined partakes. Matter repeats, darts back and forth, falls into new zones. Regularly, withdrawing results to control sensations. Any level-headed perception decreases by connected people being hurt, flames flashing across my eyes. Looped, often incomprehensible thinking tests my boundaries. Chances to scream are adorned by a "do it do it do it", strained from contemporary pop music.

As I approach 40 instalments in the 15 Minutes Of Fame mix series, I would like to thank anyone who has given me encouraging feedback, reassurance, downloaded the EP discussed, been there as a short term spirit. You are those who I wish the best for, and like beggars aren't bleary-eyed when money is thrust into their hands, I soak up the goodwill, but adrenalin won't overtake me, so I won't be vanishing from view.

Summer awaits, and from manual labour springs "Ship's Close To Port". The music in this mix has a strong element of pretence to it, as if it's preparing you for arrival to a destination. I am currently absent from contact with a foreign friend, having learnt much, but nonetheless I'm not sure if I've got healthier - stress has overrided the good in certain contexts, and I'm struggling to be as raw as they are with my feelings.

The revised notions: you can love non-romantically - an easy point to digest - but if the spark isn't there, you're liable, if inexperienced, to be chasing invisible needles in haystacks. And there's no substitute for offline interaction. People hide their habits implicitly on the web, and living with someone you love can expose you to irritations from differences. However rose-tinted your glasses are from a distance, it sometimes takes grappling with the foundations to realise flippant and self-defeating behaviour arises if you're knocked for six.

Though the future doesn't have to be all gauzy black and grey when the clouds disappear, or the light of your sun shines through. There are good moments to be had if you stick with it. It just depends on your patience and stability. Likewise, dispelling mournful sentiments in crisis shouldn't be taxing on your epigraph. Individuals aren't as callous, manipulative or cold as they can seem if we strike up an honest conversation. There are points of reason to be gained on either side by opening ourselves up.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 41 - Words Can Burn A Happy Home - July 2010

[Image: Robbie+Williams.jpg]

If you can't detect differences between the homely and absurd, it's probable that there's trouble with your head in relation to your heart. So we have car boot sales to remove the physical things, tipping the scales of materiality against personal value, redeeming the items that we keep as worth more than pennies or notes. But when there's a mental upset that leaves us exposed or raw, it's not always that easy to trade memories for cremation of the very thoughts we despise. Patterns and habitual mindsets grow from the unconscious, causing us to retrospect our past, the losses we've made, and what we can gain from experience. Knowing this isn't necessarily a safe road to success, however. Truth and denial constrict the fundamental, scouring our brain's hemispheres, where conscience tells us what's right. And if we lack conscience, then there's a heavy price to pay when faced with a metaphorical court battle, one that threatens to tear our theories limb from limb if we haven't been listening.

Speech, generally, gives us the vehicle to put right these philosophical qualms and render the ego-nature helpless to alteration. But as a contradiction, it can also quash the development of strong, righteous behaviour, filtering it through thorns outside of housing - where our possessions, of any form, usually reside. Beneficial righteousness can take the line of assertiveness, where we tell each other without passive aggression our problems, what we want to do with them, and if they're worth our handling from customs to doorstep. If left untempered, biting one's tongue is a worthless counter-action in hindsight of a storm being born.

"Words Can Burn A Happy Home", the 41st instalment in my mixtape chain, is centred. I've collected awe-inspiring ambience that leaves me speechless, segued it into a post-electronic-rock hybrid from Port-Royal, tagging the foundation connection of Robbie Williams' "Toxic" to leave participants with desired food for thought. "Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can burn a happy home, it's true. I've got words for you" sings Williams on his b-side to "Eternity". Inherently, I channel emotions from my environment on this 15 Minutes Of Fame chronology. The subject here is a friend who, I believe personally, needs to be told, despite their years, where they're going wrong. This is the second Muttley set which is tight to twenty minutes, partly inspired by nrvnet's THC 20[12] concept for the mix series.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 42 - Bloodied - July 2010

[Image: 300x300.jpg]

Bleeding is a metaphor for every problem and solution. Scratching the surface recklessly chances spillage, whereas the reformation yields periods to recuperate. "Bloodied" sketches these descriptions into movements, where I chose tunes with characteristic likeness to the bleeding process. Softness of touch gradually hardens towards Talvihorros; outpouring of rain from the Loscil track layers under my "Breath Of Peace"; later, currents of drone, piano, and static represent the healing of a cut. I've been aware of DIB's recommendations for years, and as some were indispensible, it's an honour to contribute a guest mix to his blog.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 43 - Imagined Romance - July 2010

[Image: 333.jpg]

"Imagined Romance" soundtracks onlookers perceiving romance unfold, or anticipating romance that's realized as inert. Whenever life proposes negotiable romance, "Imagined Romance", composed of tracks with romantic overtones, replies as additive intervention. It climaxes with Piano Magic's demure merging of piano, drums and violin on "You Never Loved This City". Frontman Glen Johnson croons "but angel, it loves you", impressioning a physical intimacy. If romance infuses my future, I can use "Imagined Romance" as counterflow without a shred of waste.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 44 - Cradling - July 2010

Lying down is a means to decrease one’s heart rate, but shouldn’t be a crutch. For “Cradling”, I discovered music that’s so warm I want to hug. Deep in the throes of cranium conflicts, I lay and grasp my pillow to try and prevent anxious thrashing out. Ideally I listen to “Cradling” when “Closing Down” has run its course, or skip “Closing Down” to try and accelerate the recovery process. This mix should be viable for lovers of music and lovers of another in unison.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 45 - Living Free And Fearlessly - July 2010

This week, decisive events took place. I disbanded disabling locks lasting more than eighteen months. That: code to my unhealthy disposition of screaming, is simply nullified when I inhale. I free the anxiety that builds up due to thoughts and patterns, some regular, some less so. I am able to extend my period of normality by occasional deep breathing, but I am careful not to initiate in a breathing exercise, as this subconsciously adjoins refraining from panic and becoming frustrated with my looped thinking. A vicious circle can be avoided in this way.

“Living Free And Fearlessly”, then, may not come as a surprising byline for this collection. LeeN’s vocalist Floetic Laura sings “Aim for the top be the best you can be / You can see tests come daily, but you can be free”. My experience of hiphop is minimal and not entirely positive, but this track always lifts me up.

It’s apt the beginning of the mixtape is introspectivally styled, as like my procedures to avoid falling in pits of despair and not seeing a way out, they slowly unravel until a new set of tangents are affixed – be that amusing thoughts, cheerful affirmations or resignation from a solitary position. Nonetheless, “Living Free And Fearlessly” clocks in at just 21 minutes – a snapshot of internal flexibility, striking out for unknown shore.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 46 - So We Can Sleep - July 2010

[Image: 300x300.jpg]

“So We Can Sleep”, finishing the July mixtapes, breathes a sigh of relief for individuals dispersing into less crowded constellations. As it lengthens, tunes layer to relieve each other’s characteristics. These temporary alignments, and their intensifying and diminishing moods are followed by Lymbyc Systym’s high-velocity “...So We Can Sleep”, a scorching but unharmful conclusion to the drones and fogged up timbres, guitar ambience proceeding nestled in organic terrain.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 47 - In The Waiting Line - August 2010

[Image: subversion-presents-may-2010-mick-and-gr...=450&h=325]

Ryan @ A Strangely Isolated Place Wrote:No stranger to mixes, Muttley has been running the “15 Minutes Of Fame” mix series for four years on his group blog SubVersion. So far, miniatures from Peter Broderick (Erased Tapes), Peter Van Cooten (, nrvnet ( and Dave Michuda ( have stretched the series into an elongated blogosphere. See the mixes here.

Along with contributing to the series himself, it was Muttley’s contribution to the HiddenPlaceMusic blog, ‘Stepping Into The Sun’ that alerted me to his beautifully crafted mix concepts. “In The Waiting Line”, contributed exclusively to A Strangely Isolated Place, is one concept from several that showcases artists that Muttley has specifically enquired to book for concerts in the future. Since an inspiring first concert watching Greg Haines (pictured), Muttley’s shortlist has grown to encompass classic artists such as Roger Eno and more recent pioneers in the form of Oneohtrix Point Never.

“With the exception of Quosp, who doesn’t play live, all these producers are on my shortlist if funds and logistics weren’t an issue. Zelienople, for instance, my favourite psychedelic rock group, I would love to bring to Oxford, where I am resident, but understand it would be difficult on all accounts. Nonetheless I remain optimistic, and have prospective delights lined up from some of these artists”.

The result? A truly inspirational and unique mix that transports you to the front row of an ambient fans dream gig. Which artists would be included in your dream concert shortlist?

“Embrace” embodies cherishing the moment and its temporary finesse, unearthing more controlled statements of logic, like error-correcting software stripped of psychic pollution, defunct cycles and non-confining angles.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 49 - Exponents Of The Guitar - August 2010

[Image: muttley-exponents-of-the-guitar-banner1.jpg?w=500&h=250]

“Exponents Of The Guitar” was inspired by my father’s plans to get lessons for the instrument – to advance his skills, and make the hobby more pleasurable. The tune selection – perpetuated from a sketched timeline of recently discovered cuts – Leo Abrahams, GYBE’s “Yanqui U.X.O” installment on Constellation – and older acquisitions, such as my favourite by guitar virtuosos Gordon Giltrap with Martin Taylor: “Green Lady”, the former I saw live at Alvescot Village Hall, Oxford in 2008, are paired and generally left to reveal their rewards.

This said, there are a few layered sections – notably the starting blend matures to four tracks playing at once, and the Giltrap collaboration work inherits a doubled scale of chords when blended with Zelienople’s “Family Beast”. From reverb-heavy washes – Robin Guthrie’s “Everlasting” – to folky acoustica – Rameses III’s “No Water No Moon”, “Exponents Of The Guitar” covers a lot of stylistic bases, and I feel privileged to contribute this to Headphone Commute.

Muttley & Collaborators - 15 MOF Pt. 50 - Wilderness - September 2011

[Image: scaffiliated1.gif]

Back in April I posted on SC the opportunity for members to contribute tracks "outside your comfort zone" to my SC Affiliated 15 Minutes Of Fame project concept for 2011, the series dating from 2006, building over 85000 downloads.

Counterintuitively it wasn't plain sailing to accumulate the "Wilderness" tunes, since there's the question of music having redeeming qualities or not, whether you can find something to like in it - "I like this, and I'm surprised" causes of chance.

Crossing the lines between guilty pleasures and acquired taste, the mixtape, 33 minutes long, is a spiky smorgasbord of styles, was very difficult to make flow, while extending my "comfort zone". Nonetheless I'm satisfied with the result - I hope you enjoy it too.


00:00 James Taylor - You Can Close Your Eyes - submitted by MetaLX

"It takes me back to the days when we used to play music on the weekends and one of my best mates was really into JT, in fact he called him "JT" (laughs). I thought his music was soppy to say the least, but, as time went on I kinda got into his folk sound! As a guitar player I was impressed by his almost psychopathic use of chords and progressions - fingerworkout."

It was well done, actually.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 51 - Water Under The Bridge - November 2011

"Water Under The Bridge" continues the 15 Minutes Of Fame series by me solo since "Exponents Of The Guitar" in August 2010. It's on a somber note - I've just left my family to live in shared accomodation, and the dedication of this, is to my two Bridge Building workers: one an Art Therapist who has helped me channel thoughts to paper, with discussions, and reflection time; the other a traditional facilitator assisting me re-integrating into activities post Stories Of Solace In Miniature Episode 1, my psychosis prevention project.


The music is akin to water flowing from one stream to the next, reinforcing the creation process as something natural. Let me know your thoughts or if you've ideas for future mixtapes to implement into 15 Minutes Of Fame.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 52 - Hurt - December 2011

Sparked by Statto's "Agony Aunt Thread", where he links Clarisse Thorn's "How To Break Up And Take It Like A Champ", "Hurt" came together in less than a day, designed as a movement-based archetype model, of sound that will assist listeners overcoming their heartache. Myself: I've been hurt by three women in the last three annums; the first through unintelligence, the second lack of maturity, and the third: where we drifted apart as friends despite my best efforts. Vowing to never contact again last month, it made sense to sculpt something where areas of downfall are depicted and possibly improved. In doing so, you can map areas of Clarisse's article to lyrics in the mixtape, emotions you received, and dispelling grief.

Muttley - 15 MOF Pt. 53 - Seeds Of Inspiration - December 2011

[Image: cover2.jpg]

Two people sharing time together, swimming and fishing, science, mental and physical health, sociology, language, chronology, competitiveness, computer games, gardening, travel; all these things my folks allowed me in some way or another, and those subjects make their way into track titles in "Seeds Of Inspiration". I made this for their 15th wedding anniversary, falling this Saturday. The music concurrently inspires me to get up and stimulate myself with fresh experiences, whether that walking to unforeseen areas of the city, gigging, journalling, review writing, or reading books. Plus, my fusions here cast illusion to things being "new" - until I've worn out the mixtape that is. Maybe this will plant seeds of inspiration in you as well.

Annastay Wrote:This mix is brilliant.

I'm at this track: Lana Del Ray - Video Games, and I'm going nuts as I have heard this recently and was going nuts over it, but I can't remember where else I heard it... arghhhh.

Over 13 parts to add to this thread now...will get on the update front this coming week. Check back for edits. Smile

I've completed 72 15 Minutes Of Fame mixes since June 2006. Some, however, such as parts 56-66 (when I was in mental hospital 14 months ago) have vanished from the server, along with Pt. 55. John Kapsil the host says he didn't delete them that's for sure, so the only palatable explanation is that someone hacked me for my password to remove them manually. I can't recreate the mixes - they're far too detailed - so I will just continue to keep this thread updated in the new year with further sets.


That's a shame Mutters, surely someone has digital copies of them out there in the hinterlands of the web?

You would think so. If anyone has please come forward.
