Fragmented Dialogue (Mix)

Cover image by Thomas 'Mystified' Parks

I’m very honoured to present this collaboration mix with Dave Michuda from Low Light Mixes, whose mixes have been a source of inspiration from the very beginning of Ambientblog.net. When we talked (or rather: mailed) about creating a mix together, we decided not to go for a back-to-back exchange, but gave ourselves an objective without knowing where this would lead to:

5 Minutes each turn. Start with a 5minute track, increase the sample count each turn (next turn 2, next turn 3, next turn 4…) until we reach 60 minutes… (last 5 minutes contain 6 samples each turn). See what happens.

Here is the result: a mix that starts with two single tracks but gets more complex, layered and more adventurous with every turn. There are some quite unexpected turns here, so I hope the listener can follow us in this journey.

I’m even móre honoured that this mix is presented on three blogs at the same time: Low Light Mixes, Headphone Commute and Ambientblog. Both Headphone Commute and Low Light Mixes are ‘giants’ compared to my humble Ambientblog, so I’m really happy this mix may reach a new audience… and hope they enjoy the way it turned out.

  1. the Interstellar Radio Station (via Lowlightmixes_

    Once again, as with many recent mixes, fantastic and original concept. The final selections however paint an isolationist and dark ambient medley – I would have preferred some ebullient material thrown in for balance. PvC does appear to be evolving in this direction, so the outcome is by and large to be expected. Much listening is needed to determine the final product’s cohesiveness – it is among the most complex of mixes ever released in this blog.
