Winter Solstice 4: “In C” (Mix)

Winter Solstice 4

This is my contribution to the fourth (8-hour) ambient night on Concertzender Nederland, which is traditionally scheduled on or around midwinter solstice.
As in previous editions, this night has four parts, respectively compiled by Roel Janssen, Harrold RoelandBob Rusche, and myself. It was broadcast from 5:00-7:00 AM on December 25, and closed the night.

As in all of my (Ambientblog) mixes, Winter Solstice 4 is a collage created from short fragments – hence the extended tracklist below. This time, I used a different method of selecting tracks: I chose only tracks in the key of C. (Or, to be honest: the tracks that my software told me were in C, since I have no absolute hearing).
As a result, the mix absolutely flows more coherently than you might guess by looking at the sequence image. At least, that’s how I feel it, and I hope you feel that too.
Anyway, it’s quite a hallucinating two-hour trip to dive deep into. I hope you enjoy listening! And of course: feedback is always appreciated.
