ambient A to Z

July 30th, 2010

I usually try to have some sort of theme for each mix.  But lately my creativity has dried up.  I wanted to do a new mix but had no new ideas.  I was staring at my computer monitor with it's big folder full of ambient music, all of it in alphabetical order.  Then it hit me, I'll just do a nice, simple A to Z mix of a variety of ambient tunes.

It was fun because I ended up using some tracks & artists that I've never put in a mix before, such as Eberhard Schoener, Christopher Short, Nelson Foltz & Tom Lynn, Quosp, Ulf Lohman.  Of course I also worked in old standbys like Basinski, Goldmund, Loscil, and Yagya.

I had to split the mix into two separate tracks to keep it from being 2 hours long.  So part 1 is A thru M & part 2 is N thru Z.

If any readers/listeners have ideas for mixes please let me know.  A few ideas in the early stages are and ambient vocal mix &/or slow/quiet vocal tunes, alien landscapes, slow beats, sleep tunes, progressive rock vol. 2.  Anyway any ideas would be appreciated.  In the meantime, enjoy A to Z.

a vibration of strings

July 23rd, 2010

I ran into the track "The Last Message" by John Murphy on a mix at A Strangely Isolated Place, and it got me thingking about doing another classical-ish mix.

The Murphy track is in there, along with new tunes(Maya Beiser, Max Richter, Nils Frahm, etc) and old tunes(Steve Reich, Peter Gabriel, Gavin Bryars, etc).

There's really not much more to say except that I hope you enjoy this collection of ambient, soundtrack, minimal & neo-classical tunes.
