I fell asleep at my desk making this mix
« on: June 28, 2009, 07:56:28 PM »
I just posted a new mix.  But instead of just adding it to the Low Light thread, I created a new one for it because I figured the title might catch everyone's attention.

I listen to music every night when I go to bed.  I try to keep the sleep play list fresh, but there are definite favorites that I return to again & again.  I wanted to do a new sleep mix so I could incorporate a couple favorite Steve Roach cuts, from Dynamic Stillness & Deeper Silence.

So I dumped some tracks to a portable hard drive, brought it to work & starting mixing in between "real work". I had 4 or 5 tracks laid down & I was listening to one of the transitions & literally fell asleep at my desk, hence the title of the mix. A lot of the tracks sound very much like each other which I guess is good in this case because one track stretches into another, in a long, trance inducing, ambient lullaby. At 90 minutes, the mix is longer than most, but I thought the length worked a bit better for sleeping.

Sweet dreams...

I'm a fan of all your mixes, but I'm a especially large fan of your mixes that can induce sleep.  Suspended in Air still gets play fairly often.
Thanks for these.  :)

I am a frequent  insomniac...must admit this mix does put me out flat...is it the music, or the power of self-suggestion? :-\
Never made it past first 20 minutes, unfortunately.
