an uncharted sea

"The loneliness you get by the sea is personal and alive. It doesn't subdue you and make you feel abject. It's stimulating loneliness." - Anne Morrow Lindbergh

So much of ambient music has a beautiful ebb & flow that lends itself perfectly to sea metaphors.  Whether its bobbing up & down on the surface or plumbing the depths, ambient music music seems to fit well with imagery of the sea.

I could crank out sea mixes just using tunes with water, ocean or sea references in the track titles.  This mix does have a few tracks with obvious sea titles, but in general it's just another collection of tunes that have that "sea sound."

the stars above us

"Astronomy compels the soul to look upwards and leads us from this world to another." -- Plato (427-347 B.C.)

I realized that I hadn't done a stargazing mix in quite awhile and with the weather getting warmer & spending more time outside, I figured a new star mix was in order.

So here it is...
