Smile "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. -


Now, the tracklist: (A more detailed one can be found in the tags, check the track properties if your media player allows it)

01 z.s.l.o. - 422189
02 Li Chin Sung - Somewhere
03 WFDD - Sin
04 Alistair Crosbie - As Slow As Birds Dive
05 Lim Giang - Unknown
06 Proem - Drenched in Anguish
07 Ophidian - Secrecy
08 Sandling - Desolate outpost
09 Argaman - Inharmonic Symphony
10 Sieneke - Ik Ben Verliefd (Sha-La-Lie)
11 Proem - Till Theres No Breath
12 Legowelt - Twilight islands
13 Thomas P. Heckmann - The Sound Of Colour
14 Dominik Eulberg - Die Rotbauchunken Vom Tegernsee
15 kodema - Turning Leaf Migrations Part 2
16 Stefan Goldmann - Slit Trench
17 Labyrinth - Carriage At St. Palurs Harbor
18 Library Tapes - The Sound Of Emptiness Part 1
19 Pawn - The Creak Of The Chair
20 Alex Smoke - Northwoods
21 Kodema - Turning Leaf Migrations Part 2
22 Forest Creature - Frustrated Analogue Edit 2
23 Pawn - Quiet Room
24 Chokai - Glade Geita
25 Marcelino Galan - Clair D'mix
26 Sine Weaver - Has Anyone Seen God
27 Nicholas Szczepanik - Mi Otra Mitad

Believe me i didn't plan to have this much of them. It just worked out that way. Obviously a lot of them are merely used as tools.

Technicalities:
MP3 VBR. ~150 MB.

DL:
Bierheld - An Ode To Sonic Extravagance.mp3 - 144.08MB

Hope you enjoy.

ill write a review real soon. this stuff is right up with my listening habits. The variety looks pretty crazy tho, Dominik Eulberg & Legowelt right next to stuff like Library Tapes & Nicholas Szczepanik should be pretty interesting.

one thing i ask is if you could please upload it elsewhere, like sendspace, cuz zshare cuts its speed down fiercely whenever i use it.

Sure, might take me a day or so to do because i do need some sleep now. Oh and you probably won't even recognize the Eulberg and Legowelt tracks. I just wanted to credit every one that i used.

Well this is quite heavy listening. It's probably gonna take me a few listens to get my head around some of it. I'd like to hear this under the influence of something illicit. That said that Argaman track is amazing.

Be careful though, It can get pretty paranoid if you're not familiar with the music.

i was listening to some stuff on Brume Records & Soleilmoon before this, so i was able to get into the mood nicely.

fantastically well mixed and smooooth. i tried to make something like this set before with "history vol.606" -- but you have made ace work.

seems like the really wild stuff was part of the first 40 or so minutes and then the mix relaxed.

Ah, I'm glad you liked it.
I've heard a few of your mixes but didn't know about that one. Suppose i should give it a listen as well. Thanks.

And yes, it does relax after a while. I think it fits the more downtempo tracks better.
