Coordinated Universal Time

By Coordinated Universal Time
Coordinated Universal Time is a sonic collage of foxfire-side readings, thinking machines, disembodied conversations, music we found in this world or made in another. Deep time reverberations and field recordings from the front lines of a future held in common. An aural zine hand-pasted and neural-networked by solar golems from the 23rd century, still quickening in the coals of the present: a podcast for now.

From the Forest to the Stars
Where are we going? A question muttered a thousand times a day. Forests are gateways to the subconscious, the mysterious, the primal. Stars are symbols of a higher self, hope, the future. We rise and we fall. Or perhaps we only strive.
