DreamScenes usually only features new releases, but this month I want to start with an exception in remembrance of Pauline Oliveros.
Among many other things, she will be remembered for her Deep Listening concept.
Concluding this edition with a track by Mario Batkoviç that feels like a (probably unintended) tribute to Oliveros.
I guess it’s because of the dark season… Somewhat different from the usual DreamScenes selection, this edition contains five (!) vocal tracks, and some acoustic (guitar-)oriented tracks.
So it seems this edition is somewhat more ‘pop-oriented’.
Still, there’s this genuine ‘ambient’ feel… a ‘late night’ session, if you wish.
I have enjoyed a holiday in September, so I had to skip last month’s DreamScenes edition.
To compensate for the immeasurable grief this must have caused, ánd to celebrate the start of autumn, this edition is a twice as long as usual.
The August edition of DreamScenes feels like a full night’s sleep cycle compressed to one hour!
Featuring 36, Christopher Tignor, Ferdinando Arnò (with Melanie De Biasio), Ian William Craig, Eric Holm, Nils Quak, Brambles, Sylvain Chauveau, Kolhoosi 13, Antonymes, Daniel Lanois, Mathieu Ruhlmann, Strië and Jherek Bischoff
There’s a remarkable amount of rain falling in this July edition of DreamScenes. Well… I guess it perfectly fits this summer season…
