The main This Plague of Dreaming website is back up, and the links are fixed.

I also added a new artist page for The Threshold People, and links to cover art for all releases.

Instabilities in the Fabric

The netlabels at are changing servers, and all is in disruption. Our address, for instance, is changing (adjust your bookmarks as appropriate). The changes will, for the most part, be good - it will be easier for artists to update or fix broken collections, and the URL's of the download pages will be considerably shorter - but it also means going back in and changing all the links at and our other promotional venues.

We do apologize for any difficulty you may have accessing the music in the meantime, and we'll let you know when it's straightened out.

[Update: it looks like the collection itself is back up and available for download. There are still some problems (e.g. download statistics not updated), and I still have some links to change tonight, but the music is there if you want it, and that's the important part.)

website update

My candle's burning low, but at last the website update is complete.

(Check out our new artist pages at

It's late, and the tech staff have long since retired to their dormitories, leaving me to finish the update alone, after hours. From my window in the PlagueDream Media Center I can see across the moonlit compound to the bunkhouse, where blue TV flickers light up The Threshold People's window. I Bury the Living? The Killer Shrews? They're probably asleep in front of it by now, the movie rewinding and repeating endlessly on their hulking old VCR and influencing their dreams.

The shades are down on the secretive To Repel Ghosts, but every now and again they light up with a bright spray of sparks, and I can hear the ancient oscillators warble and howl. (TRG find the privacy of their room more conducive to their arcane pursuits than the main laboratory, and they keep ungodly hours.)

Somewhere out there, perhaps, Sypha Nadon gazes with intricate apprehension at this same gibbous moon. His relentless and harrowing explorations, though of vital importance to us all, offer him little comfort in the small hours of the night. For some, sleep is not a refuge.

My work for the night is done, and my candle gutters in its own wax. I am about ready to expire, myself, so I'm off to my bunk.

Dream well, plaguedreamers, and don't get caught.

Sypha Nadon, the unstoppable force behind the successful Enter Horus E.P., is back with a full-length album:
