Here's another new mix(i've had some extra free time at work), its called "Searching for Objects".  As I posted on the low light blog, the working title for this mix was "noisy, droney, scratchy".  It turned out to be more droney & scratchy than noisy.  There is some grit, some distortion, some white noise, some scratches but not too much.  I still wanted the mix to be very ambient, not too annoying or distracting. 

I finished this one before I could use the new Infraction release from Sleepy Town Manufacture which would have fit perfectly.  I guess that's first up for vol. 2.

I just put up a new mix over at Low Light Mixes

It's collection of field recordings & music called "in_transit".  The field recordings are not of the chirping birds & lapping waves variety.  They are more like street noise, rain, crowd sounds and trains, lots of trains.  I don't have a tracklist but I do have a more in depth explanation of what's in the mix(ie-Blade Runner environments) at the blog.

You can direct download it here...
in_transit

or at the blog...Low Light Mixes.

"A tour de force! Low Light Mixes does it again!"

- Ambient Mix Magazine

Really, REALLY good! It was great listening to in_transit going to work this morning. The sounds of the mix were blending with the ambient sounds around me of the subway and the streets of DC. Sometimes I couldn't tell what was live and what was Memorex. Very cool! :)

I've got another mix up at Low Light Mixes.  It's called "shadows at midnight."

I've been loving the new release from Jon Hassell so I wanted to do a mix that had a late-night jazz sort of feel to it.  The mix is fairly straight forward, no great segues or fx triple layers of sound.  But I think the tunes flow nicely together & keep a melancholy, moody jazz feel going throughout.

Download : 110mb 60min.

TRACKLIST:

  • 00:00    Arve Henriksen - Migration
    05:21    The Necks - Black

    13:50    Slowhill - Nikos Dream
    17:59    boren & der club of gore - Midnight Walker
    24:45    Jon Hassell - Courtais
    29:40    Miles Davis - In a Silent Way
    33:35    Nick B. Ronin - Modul 42
    39:30    Duke Ellington - Melancholia
    42:25    Arve Henriksen - Recording Angel
    48:20    Jon Hassell - Last Night the Moon Came
    58:17    Mort d'un Pourri - tout est tranquille

I've just posted an all vocal mix over at Low Light Mixes.  A vocal mix is a rarity over at Low Light, but this one, called "Refuge", still has an ambient sort of feel to it as most of the tunes are fairly quiet.

I've got a couple of songs from Martin Grech in the mix.  His release "March of the Lonely" made it on to my best of 2008 list.  I had to restrain myself from putting in too much David Sylvian, but he did end up with two tracks.  I included an old track from Roxy Music which is a vinyl rip that I did years ago, so there are a few pops & scratches that sneak in there.

download : 107mb  58:30

TRACKLIST:
00:00    Canyon Country - Dead or Dreaming
03:50    David Sylvian - Maria
06:15    Martin Grech - Kingdom
09:30    Sufjan Stevens - Holland
12:50    Grizzly Bear - Foreground
15:54    Antony & the Johnsons - Another World
19:35    Peter Gabriel - Father, Son
24:20    Roxy Music - Spin Me Round
28:50    REM - Star Me Kitten
31:45    Daniel Lanois - Bell Toll
33:00    David Bridie - Sad
36:30    David Sylvian - When Poets Dreamed of Angels
41:00    Martin Grech - Ashes Over Embers
46:30    P.G. Six - Lily of the West
51:35    Trespassers William - Love is Blindness

Two new mixes are up at Low Light Mixes.

They are both "rain" mixes that make generous use of field recordings mixed in with the music.  Of course some of the tunes have their own rain sounds mixed in.  Every cut in each mix has the word "rain" in the title. 

One mix is a vocal mix called "I Love the Rain".
Download it here...
I Love the Rain

t r a c k l i s t :
    00:00    Susanna & The Magical Orchestra - It's Raining Today

    09:49    The Handsome Family - Famous Blue Raincoat
    14:40    Daniel Lanois - Rain Weather
    18:20    The Decemberists - Raincoat Song
    20:40    Joe Purdy - I Love the Rain the Most

    28:54    REM - I'll Take the Rain
    34:15    Rivulets - Rain All Winter Long

The other mix is an instrumental mix, more like a traditional Low Light mix.

I just posted a new mix at low light mixes.  It's a sequel to the Sustain & Decay mix from last year and it's called "revenants of the past."

Just like last year's mix, this one uses recordings that are 80 to 100 years old & combines them with current ambient music to create a ghostly, ambient mix.

Been on a roll this week so here is another quickie mix..."Remember Tomorrow".

More beat oriented than normal, the mix has a sort of retro, space music vibe.  I tried to keep it from getting too cheesy.

I think it's a fun trip.

New mix - slo mo
« Reply #31 on: January 17, 2010, 02:43:30 PM »
Here's the first mix for 2010. It's called slo_mo because all the tunes are slow & droney.

One aspect of this mix that makes it a bit different is the use of a few "stretched" tracks. I think I've mentioned this program here before, it's called "Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch". I couldn't find a link to it, but at one time, on the web, there was a version of Beethoven's 9th Symphony that had been stretched to 24 hours.

I stretched 3 songs for the mix, Eno - Music for Airports, Laetetur Cor (Choir of the Abbey of Saint Wandrille) and Budd & Eno - A Stream With Bright Fish. Those tracks along with the others combine for a very slow mix that works pretty well for sleeping(I couldn't make past the 20min mark twice last night).

slo_mo

T R A C K L I S T :

00:00 Eno - Music for Airports (s t r e t c h e d)
08:25 lexithimie - scale 1
12:35 Apalusa - Coventry, January 21, 2008
18:00 Laetetur Cor - Choir of the Abbey of Saint Wandrille (s t r e t c h e d)
22:20 Budd & Eno - A Stream with Bright Fish (s t r e t c h e d)
30:35 Celer - Gaited Florets
38:00 Porzellan - Rosen
47:10 Spheruleus - Time Fades
54:12 Language of Landscape - And The Rain Embraced Our Closing Words

Thanks Dave.  I'm a big fan of your more drone-y mixes, as they work beautifully for going to sleep.

And Paulstretch is an awesome tool.  I think it's been talked about elsewhere on the forum, but here's the link for anyone curious:

the landscape listens - a wintry mix
« Reply #33 on: February 16, 2010, 07:32:34 PM »


New mix for the dead of winter.  It's called "the landscape listens".

The music in this mix has a sort of lonely winter feel to it. The tracks are not too dark or depressing, they just seem to conger up images of vast, snowy landscapes.

I'm not sure if I've ever posted links to Mixcloud, but it's a place to post mixes(duh).  Unfortunately you can't download, just streaming.  One of my favorites there is Fluid Radio.  Their mixes offer a collection of Ambient, Modern Classical, Experimental Acoustic, Folk and Abstract sounds.

I liked their stuff enough that I wanted to do my own "neo-classical" mix.  However, as I said on the Low Light Mixes blog, sometimes mixes take on a life of their own and they end going in different directions.  While searching for tracks for this mix I came across a recording of Russian sacred music, which lead me to more vocal tunes, which then ended up as 10 vocal tracks in this mix. Some of the cuts appear as recorded, others have been altered or remixed a bit.

Re: Low Light Mixes
« Reply #36 on: May 18, 2010, 06:36:44 AM »

I recently was given a box of old sound effects records like the one in the picture. These albums brought back a lot of memories. As a kid I would go to the public library down the street and borrow their sound effects records. I guess that was an early sign that I'd end up with music tastes that were a bit different.

This new mix is perfect for my new vinyl sound effects collection, unfortunately I finished the mix before I got the records. So I'll have to save them for the next installment in the field mixes.(I just love the look of the records so I had to at least post a pic)

For this mix, the 3rd in the field music mixes, I tried to use more natural sound and less music. There are definitely musical elements here, thanks to Spheruleus, Nigel Samways and others. I tried to pick field sounds that weren't too obtrusive. There are many sounds that are interesting to listen to, but don't work as ambient "music". After a nice quiet section of wind blowing through bamboo, hearing fireworks exploding wouldn't work for me.

The tracklist is a bit vague, as the times are even more nebulous than normal. I hope you enjoy this latest field mix.

I'm just going to copy & paste what I posted on my blog(too lazy & tired to come up with different copy)...

Right off the bat, I have to come clean. I stole something. I stole the idea for this mix. But I'm glad I did because I'm very excited to post this new track.

Over at SoundCloud I ran into some mixes by Astromatt. He uses sounds from music libraries and soundtracks of '60's and '70's to create great underwater themed mixes. I love the sound of these old tracks & how they work together in a mix.

Who knew that these old library albums even existed?! After some research & digging, I decided to try my hand at a similar mix.

With a lot of this music, it's very easy to cross the line into cheesy/kitchy territory. I tried to find tunes that had that old 70's undersea soundtrack feel but were still listenable by today's ambient standards. I think it works pretty well as an ambient mix, very relaxing, with a cool watery vibe.

It was a lot of fun discovering some of these old albums & I'm sure I'll visit them again.
