"An ode to sonic extravagance" [experimental electronics & melodics]
So... Where to start.
Basically, i tried to find... what's really the most forward thinking in modern music. I went all over the place with it from where i started back in march; trying to find a direction for this mix to go in, until eventually i found that it was best not to worry about it too much and to just use my imagination.
The end result is a fast paced set of mixing ideas. Going from ear shattering frequency abuse to calming melodic serenity on a regular basis. Hopefully varied enough to keep it interesting but smooth enough to make it possible to get lost in. What the music itself has in common is that it pushes the boundaries of what their respective genres offer or even to verge outside of it's boxes.
If you really want a list of what genres are present, it would look something like this:
Ambient, Dark Ambient, Psychedelic Ambient, Hardcore, Folk, Techno, Noise, Drone, Downtempo and of course IDM.
So yeah, that doesn't help much. Basically you just need to be an open minded and adventurous listener.
The main mix is about 72 minutes long, after which it drones on for a while. Basically because i like to have something to.. turn it off to i guess. Although i think it is rewarding enough to keep on listening until the very end
Basically, it's mostly a personal 'artistic statement' mix.
For me it succeeded. But I'm curious to see what others think about it, there's bound to be someone like me who might appreciate it. -
