Perception Management (Mix)

Perception Management

“There is something in the beauty of darkness. And one doesn’t have to be in a dark mood in order to appreciate it. Perhaps one gets desensitized with age to all of the bitter layers, in order to uncover all of the sweetness – like a fine old whiskey, slowly aged and waiting for your taste.
This, I believe, Peter van Cooten understands the most, with his latest Headphone Commute offering, titled Perception Management.
The concept behind this mix also challenges your view of the world… The inspiration for this particular mix came from Adam Curtis‘ BBC documentary Hypernormalisation.

Perception Management

“Domo de Argila” – Andy Goldsworth
Your reality is manipulated.
Your perception is managed.
Your thoughts are not your own.
Reality is imaginary.

Entropic (Mix)

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 …

en·tro·py (ĕn′trə-pē)

  • 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.
  • Inevitable and steady deterioration of a system or society.
  • For a closed thermodynamic system, a quantitative measure of the amount of thermal energy not available to do work.

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!”

Jam Karet (Elastic Time) (Mix)

Jam Karet (Elastic Time)

“Jam Karet” is Bahasa Indonesia (Indonesian language) meaning “Elastic Time” (or “Rubber Hours”).
It is used for all ‘time waiting patiently or expected, rather than wasted’. It definitely also makes life easier: if you have an appointment at 9pm jam karet and arrive at 9.30 pm, you are still not too late.
Time simply isn’t very relevant in everyday life …

To me, Jam Karet can also be applied to many mixes including ambient and drone fragments… where the listener gets immersed in sound in such a way that all notion of time is lost. Where music could last for minutes, or for hours.
With that idea in the back of my mind, I started working on this mix.
The result is a collage with samples from a lot of different sources – ambient music, early electronic music experiments, field recordings and fragments or ‘acousmatic’ music – mixed together to (hopefully) make you lose track of time…

Created for (and published on) Headphone Commute:
“Peter Van Cooten and I have exchanged music recommendations since the birth of Headphone Commute. In fact, there are many times that I feel like I’m speaking to him as opposed to my anonymous audience. Through these words, Peter and I have been able to discover and indeed influence each other’s music tastes throughout the years. This past November, I had an opportunity to visit the Netherlands to cover Le Guess Who? music festival, and so when I realized that Utrecht was also Peter’s hometown, I purchased my plane tickets with a high anticipation of finally meeting him in person. I was not let down in my expectations of Peter’s warm reception, extremely friendly character, and a reflective outlook on life — hmmm… I wonder if there is a relation between that and the music that we both enjoy. Anyway! Today I’m excited to welcome PvC with another absolutely gorgeous mix for Headphone Commute podcast.”
