Special thanks: I'm dedicating this initial Disquiet Listen playlist to Lucas Gonze (gonze.com) and Brian Biggs (mrbiggs.com, dancerobotdance.com), who separately nudged me toward rethinking the way I contextualize sound on this website, and to Martin Laine (1pixelout.net), whose elegant audio player made it possible.

NB: To the best of my knowledge, my promotion of these tracks in this manner is all above board. However, if you represent any of these tracks and/or artists and feel that they are being inappropriately utilized here, please contact me directly at [email protected], and I'll rectify the situation promptly.
