James & Anne (Mix)

Anne & James - Eyes

The inspiration for this mix came after attending separate performances of James Murray and Anne Garner.
The music they perform is quite different: James exploring various kinds of abstract experimental electronic soundscapes, Anne performing her poetic emotional songs blending jazz, alternative pop, folk,  spectral lullabies and tender neo-classical arrangements.
As different as their output may be, it still fits together very well – which is no real surprise knowing that Anne & James are a couple living together, and James produces and contributes towards  Anne’s music.
I wanted to find out how it would work out when mixing some tracks from their past and recent albums together.
And I found out it works very well, as you can hear yourself in this mix. It also shows that, if the ingredients match, 0ne plus one can be much more than two!

James & Anne H_C cover

A collaboration of forces between three separate entities, Headphone Commute, Ambientblog, and Slowcraft Records, are proud to present a unique mix by a colleague and partner in crime, Peter van Cooten, of beautiful works from a beautiful couple, James Murray and Anne Garner, culminating a selection of compositions they released individually, as well as together under various project names. Peter then carefully compiled these pieces together into a gorgeous journey of ambiance and voice, and now, along with the appearance on the Podcast, we are honoured to offer this little gem to you as a digital download (lossless, of course) via the new entry of Headphone Commute Presents on our Bandcamp! Whew!

No Stars (Mix)

No Stars

I know, I know – it’s a bit risky to use a cheesy teenage love song as the title track of an otherwise fairly dark ambient mix. Even if the song is taken from the Twin Peaks 2017 soundtrack. Some listeners probably won’t get past it – and if they quit at that point, they’ll miss the 40 minutes of associative transitions in the rest of the mix.
But I personally really love the juxtaposition of this dreamy love song between the feverish mumbling of David Sylvian and Jóhann Jóhannsson’s track merging into the almost frightening climax of Stefan Wesolowski.
To quote Woody Brown (the ‘industry expert of mixing’): “use your ears, not your prejudices”!

But, jokes aside, this ís a serious mix. With the occasional exception, most of the music in this mix is heavily mutilated: the original tracks are cut-up, shortened, fragmented, edited – often using only a fragment from a track that originally is much longer. A collage like this takes the sound out of its original context to serve its own purpose. That is not meant disrespectful, please let me emphasize this again… (I hope you can hear that in the result!)
Be sure to check out the original sources if you enjoy the sounds – you can find the details it in the tracklist below.

Now, follow me into a movie that you might wanna see sometime… a movie that’s happening in the back of your own head…

 

“Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens only a certain number of times, and a very small number really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood, some afternoon that is so deeply a part of your being that you can’t even conceive of your life without it? Perhaps four or five times more, perhaps not even that. How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? Perhaps twenty. And yet it all seems limitless.”
Paul Bowles, The Sheltering Sky (Ryuichi Sakamoto – Full Moon intro)

Bipolar (HC-PvC) (Mix)

Bipolar

What better way to start a new year with a brand new mix?!?

Mix-wise, 2017 was a quiet year: it has been quite some time ago since I published my last ‘real’ mix (Mind Awake, Body Asleep) – partly due to concentrating on DreamScenes,  which got a re-birth as a monthly radio show on Concertzender.nl).

But in the end of 2017 a long-standing plan finally materialised: a ‘collaboration mix’ with  Mike ‘Headphone Commute‘ Lazarev!
It is especially nice to start 2018 with this occasion, since Headphone Commute celebrates its 10th anniversary this year!

We had no clear concept for this mix when we started, other than ‘each turn takes 5 minutes, we’ll stop at 60, and we’ll see where it gets us’. We were unaware of each other’s tracklist (apart from what our ears told us).
The result is a thrilling ride, where each part is a reaction to the previous section.
Not exactly what we’d call an ‘ambient’ mix, because it’s extremely dynamic. Sections may range from deep sleep sections to exuberant enthusiasm – hence ‘Bipolar’.
It’s like a full life’s story comprised in one hour..

Take a look at the tracklist below (51 Track samples in 60 minutes) and get ready for a fascinating ride. And let us know what you think!

This mix is also published on Headphone Commute
Thanks to Mike Lazarev for all the fun!

Mind Awake, Body Asleep (Mix)

Mind Awake, Body Asleep

The moment I heard Rami Malek whisper “You lie in bed and repeat this mantra in your head: mind awake, body asleep” (Mr Robotseries 2) I knew this would be the inspiration for a new mix.
A mix about half-sleep, lucid dreaming impressions… ungraspable images… and about “letting go”.
After all, Mr. Robot’s tagline was “Control is an Illusion”.

Control proved to be an illusion indeed, with these different, unrelated, fragments coming together like pieces of a puzzle, creating a mix “like its own cinematic score.” (H_C)

So let go, indulge yourself in this mix, and leave control to wherever the sound takes you.
But (as is this is not one of those ‘feel good, sleep well’ mixes) be sure to keep you mind awake at all times!

This mix was created for – and is co-hosted on – Headphone Commute – for which I am very very grateful!

“Peter van Cooten’s intricate storytelling with his favorite piece is the precise definition of a true curator. But it’s not just a collection of sequential tracks that makes a mix from PvC a transforming experience, it’s also his multi-layered approach to weaving in the dynamics and textures of individual compositions that truly create a brand new one, disabling your mind from peeling apart the individual pieces (see below the screenshot of the entire sequence). The mix becomes an event of itself – one that I am honored to share with you.”

Thanks, H_C,  for the helping in spreading lucid audio-dreams !

DreamScenes 2017 – 5

DreamScenes Logo

The monthly editions of DreamScenes were never meant to present strictly ‘ambient’ music only. I prefer to merge different – though somewhat related – styles that share a dreamy, introvert, reflective, melancholic atmosphere (or whatever you would like to call it).

So, for this May edition, you can expect a bit of contemporary classical, a bit of piano, a bit of jazz , some drones and  (0f course) some ambient soundscapes too, to bring you a small hour of quiet dreamscenes  when needed.

Keep on (day)dreaming:

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.
Headphone Commute

Perception Management

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