James & Anne (Mix)

The inspiration for this mix came after attending separate performances of James Murray and Anne Garner.
The music they perform is quite different: James exploring various kinds of abstract experimental electronic soundscapes, Anne performing her poetic emotional songs blending jazz, alternative pop, folk,  spectral lullabies and tender neo-classical arrangements.
As different as their output may be, it still fits together very well – which is no real surprise knowing that Anne & James are a couple living together, and James produces and contributes towards  Anne’s music.
I wanted to find out how it would work out when mixing some tracks from their past and recent albums together.
And I found out it works very well, as you can hear yourself in this mix. It also shows that, if the ingredients match, 0ne plus one can be much more than two!

James & Anne H_C cover

A collaboration of forces between three separate entities, Headphone Commute, Ambientblog, and Slowcraft Records, are proud to present a unique mix by a colleague and partner in crime, Peter van Cooten, of beautiful works from a beautiful couple, James Murray and Anne Garner, culminating a selection of compositions they released individually, as well as together under various project names. Peter then carefully compiled these pieces together into a gorgeous journey of ambiance and voice, and now, along with the appearance on the Podcast, we are honoured to offer this little gem to you as a digital download (lossless, of course) via the new entry of Headphone Commute Presents on our Bandcamp! Whew!

    1. Thanks, John… Not exactly sure what you mean with this … you mean I should publish mixes more often? I would certainly love to, but unfortunately these mixes need some time to grow – I could not deliver one every month or so even if I wanted to…
      Luckily there’s a back catalogue of over 60+ mixes worth checking out too…. And if that’s still not enough it might be rewarding to check out my monthly radio show DreamScenes too:

      I certainly hope you yourself wil come back here often, too 😉

        Oh yes that’s what I meant. I understand you, modern life is no good. I didn’t relate you to DreamScenes, good to know! So yes I have enough of a good musical selection.
