Cloudwatching (Mix)

Most (if not all) previous Ambientblog mixes always had some dark moments in them, they are never ‘just’ relaxing. You can only feel release if you also felt tension.
This time, I wanted to avoid the darkness and create a ‘lighter mood mix’. Not of the ‘Ibiza Chillout Lounge’ kind, but one that can be played in the background and is still exciting enough to listen to. I hope I succeeded, but of course, you’re the one to decide about that!

With two hours, Cloudwatching is longer than usual. Only a few tracks are included in their full length, but most are heavily edited or even just short fragments. Also, they are often overlayed, so you’ll hear the music in a different context. The extensive playlist below may help you track down the original in their full-length versions.
I really hope you’ll enjoy watching these -imaginary- clouds!

Massive thanks to Dave Michuda (from Low Light Mixes) for making the beautiful promo and teaser videos, and to Joseph Aleo for co-hosting this mix in his Soundwave series.

  1. Joseph Aleo’s introduction for Cloudwatching on his Soundwave series:

    “I did not anticipate that a mix from Peter would be something of an event. Peter’s mixes are more like epic tone poems that contain both the cosmic and the mundane in one listening experience.
    Furthermore, Peter meticulously crafts his mixes. Peter might use a passage once from a song or as a leitmotif. His mixes are dense and multilayered. Peter’s skill is that despite the complexity of his mixes, they are seamless and fluid. You don’t need to know the immense effort that produced the mix you are listening to appreciate its beauty and artistry.”
