Let me begin with a warning: this mix is quite unlike the previous ones!
Though there are quite a lot ‘ambient moments’ to enjoy, it cannot be qualified as ‘ambient music mix’ because it contains a lot of other musical elements too.
This mix was created especially for Frans Friederich – a dutch musician currently working on a megalomaniac project he started in 1997: Recyclopedia.
One single full CD for each letter in the alphabet.
26 CD’s recycling and rewriting musical history associatively…!
Frans Friederich’s musical history shows a variety of styles: he played in jazz-, ska-, and big-bands, but also in experimental acts like Dull Schicksal and Trespassers W. This musical diversity is also heard on the Recyclopedia albums: it’s a musical roller coaster ride with Friederich himself joining the musical extremes in his own personal style.
In 2009, Friederich completed the “Recyclopedia Q” album – which contains beautiful ambient music created together with soundscape artist Robert Kroos.
(So, by now, about 65% of this project is finished – with this average output the entire Recyclopedia will be completed around 2017!)
When I started this Recyclopedia mix, I originally wanted to focus on the many ambient music pieces throughout the series, creating an ambient mix and leaving out all other music. But the nature of the project decided otherwise.
A pure ambient mix wouldn’t do justice to the diversity of the Recyclopedia. So, in the end, the project became more of a [R]adiophonic [R]emix collage, a bit of a [R]oller Coaster [R]ide in itself.
Not all of the Recyclopedia CD’s are included, by the way, because I wanted to keep the mix length to an hour and some of the work did not really fit the direction of the mix.
When all goes well and as planned, this mix will be released as Recyclopedia [R] (Radiophonic Remix) somewhere in 2010.
More info about the Recyclopedia project (including extensive liner notes for each single CD) can be found [here].
(Unfortunaly for foreign visitors: the website is in dutch only but if you want more information you can of course contact Frans Friederich by mail).
