Absinthe in the Milk Sea (mix)
« on: January 12, 2009, 08:47:48 PM »
OK...here goes my inaugural mix at the Hypnos forum; be gentle.  I was going for something trippy and surreal with a lot variety, showcasing a fair amount of artists who don't typically make music in the ambient vein.  I'm happier with some transitions than with others, but hopefully, there's nothing too jarring given the diversity of sounds included.  Track times are approximate due to cross-fading.

Hope you enjoy!

I enjoyed it !
Lots of pieces I don't know. And a nice consistent darker edge through it all. Good stuff.

Just some notes on format. You only need to list start times. You could zip (or rar) the mp3 so you can include the track list as a text fle. And its ID3 tag is the first track's title, you should perhaps edit that to your mix title (Absinthe...).

Thank you.  Forgot about the ID3 tag until after I'd already uploaded the thing.  Will make an accompanying text file next time as well.

Glad you enjoyed it.

It's from an album called Cosmic Chasm.  It used to be available (as a CDr) from www.klaus-wiese.com, but now it seems they've closed.  I'm not sure what other vendors might sell it.  You could try contacting Mathias personally.
