Upon Departure (Mix)

It is somewhat exceptional for an Ambientblog mix to contain full-length tracks: most of these collages are built from short fragments or samples. But when I first heard Christine Ott’s Comma, and its Snowdrops variation, I felt that this piece should be the starting point of a new mix. And in the end, it also became the final piece of the same mix – although both appearances combine the two versions in reverse order. Perhaps somewhat like a movie’s intro and end credits.

I did not start this mix with a specific theme in mind. Its title only occurred to me after it was completed because it reflected its mood: a somewhat melancholy journey that fits the end of this remarkable year.
