Cropped Paint Splates over Butterflies Dreams

…. slowly evolving to a state of inert uniformity …. retracing information that was lost from the message … searching for the uniformity in what seems to be randomly disordered …

  • A measure of the disorder or randomness in a closed system.
  • A measure of the loss of information in a transmitted message.
  • The tendency for all matter and energy in the universe to evolve toward a state of inert uniformity.

This mix is simultaneously published on Headphone Commute:
“Welcome to another Headphone Commute podcast. You’re in for a treat! Peter van Cooten has been contributing countless reviews and mixes and there’s no sign of him slowing down! And that’s a great thing, because we certainly love the soundscapes that PvC introduces our ears to, with his intricate selection of layers, textures and most importantly, story-telling. The latter is what makes up a great selector, elevating him on par with the artist themselves, where the collage of sounds becomes more than just a mix, but a brand new piece of music. Enjoy!”
