(Palancar) Host of Blue Water Drift Dive
Darrell Burgan is an electronic/ambient musician who has recorded under his own name as well as under the name Palancar. He has also recorded as part of several collaborations, including Cluster Balm, Copal River, Labrathisattva, Flute of the Fallen Tiger, and has released music with Lucette Bourdin. He has played live quite a bit under the Palancar project, as well as part of the mindSpiral and Different Skies projects.
Finally, he was the founder and owner of Earth Mantra Netlabel, a Creative Commons based ambient label, and Spirit Canyon Audio, a vendor of exotic music soundware. He was also the founder of StillStream, an internet ambient radio station that still broadcasts as an independent station, and from which RadioSpiral is a spinoff. Although he is no longer associated with these organizations, he strongly supports their continued missions.
He has many albums released; nearly all are available online so that you can listen to them freely under Creative Commons. We encourage you to download them if you like what you hear.
RadioSpiral is pleased as can be that he has chosen RadioSpiral as his new home. His program, Blue Water Drift Dive, airs Fridays at 7pm Pacific.
