a leaf on the wind - field recordings & ambience 2013

June 16th, 2013

The title pretty much says it all - this mix is a field recording mix.  I think I've done 3 field mixes in the past but haven't done one in a long time.  So I thought it was time for another sonic exploration.

The track that got me thinking about doing a new field mix was "El Divisader" by Chris Watson from the excellent "El Tren Fantasma" album.  Really a phenomenal track.

The mix starts with some church bells that I slowed down & messed with, the we get the Chris Watson track and from there the mix uses a variety of artists a field recordings to make an interesting(I hope) journey through various sonic landscapes.

I'm not going publish a formal tracklist because there is just too much stuff going on to keep track of. There are lots of other sounds and recordings mixed through out this collage.  Some are mine, some are just random things I found.  I hope it all flows well together.

This is a list of the artists, and approximate times, that have tracks appearing for more a few seconds:

03:35  Chris Watson - el divisadero

10:30  Forrest Fang -  home in exile

15:00  Vangelis - Nocturnal Rain

18:00  David Chapman - an east wind through bomb ballistics and lab 2

21:00  Collin Thomas - blackjack afternoon

31:30  Moniek Darge - solstice sample

35:00  Rapoon - Melancholic Songs of the Desert

38:30  Chris Dooks - For Wolfgang Voight

40:00  Field Rotation - watermusic

45:20  Simon Scott - sealevel.6

50:00  Chris Dooks - Sola

53:45  Linda Aubry Bullock - near

There are lots of other sounds and recordings mixed through out this collage.  Some are mine, some are just random things I found.  I hope it all flows well together.

Enjoy.
