Massimo Ruberti - "The Sound Trafficker"

Plaguedream artist and friend Massimo Ruberti has given an entertaining and informative interview to audiovoltaics about his recent album Autour de la Lune (Elpamusic).

If you enjoyed Ruberti's releases on This Plague of Dreaming*, take a look at the interview, and be sure to check out the new album**.

EDIT: For some reason, I get an error message every time I try to direct link to the interview from this post (even though it works in preview). If you have the same problem, copy and paste the url into your browser: Sorry for the inconvenience.

Domain deleted, please update links

Another round of departmental budget cuts, and is no more.

Please redirect your bookmarks and all future links to our page at the Internet Archive (, or to this blog.

Just to be clear: All of our music remains available at the Internet Archive.

It is only our (former) main website which is closed. Whatever the future brings to the department, and the Institute, I will continue to keep our catalog online.

It is my sad duty to inform you that, until further notice, This Plague of Dreaming netlabel is on suspended status. We may return after some internal reorganization, but for the time being we are closed to submissions.

Our music will still be available for free download, and I will continue to maintain the blog and website. Watch for our return!

In the meantime, visit our brother netlabels:

Harel Gal!

Harel Gal has a new full-length album up on!*


Harel's sound has grown more elaborate since his previous EP, the beginning the end. The album is drenched in the same gentle sadness, but with more emphasis on Harel's vocals, and a stronger rock edge. A cast of talented guest musicians helps fill out the arrangements.

*This is not a This Plague of Dreaming release, but we really think you ought to hear it just the same.
