Incidental Memories (Mix)

Broken Memories

If one of the criteria for ‘ambient’ music is that you can comfortably fall asleep to it, I guess you’d better skip this particular mix. Although it starts quiet and reassuring with soothing vocal chords from Silvestrov’s “The Lord’s Prayer”, the mood disintegrates and sometimes can become rather unsettling – depending on your own personal ‘incidental memories’, of course.

For reasons I can’t really explain, this mix works better if you listen on speakers instead of headphones – just let the airwaves flow for maximum immersion.

This mix was ‘premiered’ on Bob Rusche’s X-Ray radio-show (Concertzender, Holland) on January 26, 2013. Thanks, Bob!

“Mister Ambientblog himself is doing it again: making an utterly brilliant mix with the sheer beauty containing a wide variety of partly ambient and partly neo-classical sounds. Right from the sacral start with Ben Lucas Boysen and Valentin Silvestrov you will be guided through the chilling soundscapes until you reach the end with the stunning Guy Birkin track. Take this journey and you will never forget the Incidental Memories.”
Bob Rusche, X-Ray

    “Ambient is ‘sfeermuziek’, die veel verder reikt dan liftmuzak of muzikaal behang. Peter Van Cooten is een groot kenner van dit genre en heeft weer een heerlijke compilatie samengesteld (via de link te beluisteren
