KKUP 91.5FM Selects Sensitive Chaos as Best Visionary Music of 2009

KKUP 91.5FM's Eric Mystic, DJ for the Mystic Music radio show, has selected the Sensitive Chaos Emerging Transparency CD as one of the Best Visionary Music of 2009. The CD received airplay on the Visionary Music Marathon that ran from January 1 through January 3, 2010.

Sensitive Chaos was part of a select crowd that included:

Picks of the Year 2009

(or in some cases the year before, if not played on Mystic Music until 2009). The top 30, plus others, were played on the visionary marathon Jan.1, 2010, between Noon and 10 PM. Rankings are a fluid and approximate picture of my experience of these works, and subject to change later, but the number might help you remember a CD you liked that you heard on the marathon, and to find it on this list. Eric Mystic recommends all of these as the best visionary music I know of in 2009. Most are filed in our KKUP library. Those in bold may still be premiums available for a pledge of $40 or more (check DJ for availability); please call during the marathon, or our regular visionary programs, and pledge if you want one. Thanks very much for listening and supporting KKUP Peoples Radio.
