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.

DreamScenes 2016-09/10

DreamScenes Logo

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.

So I hope you’ll enjoy these two hours of new (and relatively new) music to make you float away into your daydream…

Solace (Mix)

Stars-Night-Sky Photo by Mikko Lagerstedt

“Life can only be remembered backwards, but it must be lived forwards.”

The central piece provides the title for this mix: Solace – “Comfort in sorrow, misfortune. Consolation.”
This Fovea Hex track literally breathes consolation in every single note, so it seemed a good starting point for this mix.

It is also one of the few tracks in the mix that are included in its full length.
As usual in my mixes, most of the tracks are only short fragments of the original piece, merged together to create an atmosphere that may be different from what the artist originally intended. The track listing below states the starting times of the ‘samples’ as well as its length in the mix.

Even though there are quite some dark moments in this mix, I hope it may bring some ‘solace’ – if needed.
(If not needed: even better…! It still can be nice to feel a bit melancholic for a while, can’t it?)

This mix was created for Bob Rusche’s ‘X-Ray’ broadcast on the Dutch Concertzender.
The mix was ‘premiered’ on July, 3, 2016. Thanks, Bob!

Secret 41 (Mix)

Secret 41

Because of the drones, atmospheric field recordings and insect sounds, this mix will be labeled as an ‘ambient’ mix by most listeners.
And of course it is…. but at the same time it isn’t. It simply isn’t ‘unobtrusive’ enough to be ‘ambient’.

This one feels more like a cinematic soundtrack, even more than most of my previous mixes. An hour-long journey of scene changes, meandering between *Kitsch* and *Kult*, using short samples to create ‘continuity cuts’, and constantly changing focus (like the auditive equivalent of the ‘rack focus’ technique in filmmaking).
The result is in fact more psychedelic than ambient.
Depending on the listener, of course.

The course is somewhat set by two returning fragments from larger works – (‘Just’ by Trio Mediaeval / David Lang and Kancheli‘s ‘Chiaroscuro’).
But it is entirely unpredictable where you will find yourself in the end…

Secret 41 - Sequence

And, eh, oh yeah – about the title:
This particular mix was created as a submission to Secret Thirteen‘s ‘New Blood‘ invitation to send in ‘kaleidoscopic mixes’ for their mix series (that’s why their logo is in the image). The ’41’ refers to the number of track samples that are used in this mix.
Of course it wasn’t chosen (in fact they never responded to the entry) – which didn’t really surprise me: this mix is obviously too far off from what they were looking for (read that as: not weird, extreme & obscure enough for their taste).
I probably shouldn’t have bothered sending it at all – but it was fun to experiment with some unusual combinations!

For enhanced immersiveness, you can also download the DTS-version to play on your surround sound system.

Anniversary Collection: “Rope To The Sky” (Mix)

Rope To Te Sky artwork (Arash Akbari)

The first, somewhat hesitant, posts on this blog were published exactly 10 years ago. The weblog was called DreamScenes then, but it was the same blog you’re reading now.

To celebrate this, this mix is a part of a very special Anniversary Project.
It’s ‘special‘ because it’s different: this time it’s not compiled from existing tracks, but from tracks that were exclusively submitted for this purpose!   

35 brand new exclusive tracks by 30 artists … in a mix that is much longer than usual: 2 hours and 16 minutes!
I guess there’s no need to say that I am very very proud to be able to celebrate this anniversary in this particular way!

“Thanks to all artists for trusting me with a knife.”

Due to the nature of a ‘mix-collage’, only parts of the original tracks are used. That’s a bit of a waste if the original tracks are exclusives…
That is why, for the first time, Ambientblog presents its very own release available on Bandcamp: The AMBIENTBLOG ANNIVERSARY COLLECTION.
This full collection consists of all 35 tracks in their original length (3 hours and 35 minutes) AND the “Rope to the Sky” Mix (2 hours and 16 minutes).
That’s almost six hours of brand-new music!

Anniversary Credit Card.

USB credit card version available now!

But that’s not all:
There’s even more: a limited physical edition of this collection is also available: a 8 Gb USB CREDIT CARD presenting all of the above, PLUS:

  • 29 EXTRA bonus tracks (not included in the download version) (1 hr 34 min)
  • ALL 55 previous ambientblog MIXES: 55 hr 23 min (!!) of cinematic ambient immersion
  • Full track details for all mixes
  • Video versions of ‘Parallax’ and ‘Rust’

Yes, read that again: this little gem holds OVER 60 HOURS of music!
If you want to check the tracklisting details, check them here on Discogs.

I can’t really express how proud I am to present this release. But I think you can guess.

But anyway: if the mix is enough for you, or if you want to hear an impression of the full tracks of the collection, you can listen/download/stream it here in the usual ways:

Widzjende Treast
words by Jan Kleefstra

Snie dea fallen ljocht
wat fingers net yn ‘e tiis bringe
sinne fiele wol
besykje net mei lichte stap
foar de wyn út te dwarreljen
hast mei in stim de tinne dûns
gled streake
waan dy it suver wjerbyld
fan de widzjende treast
oan it tou nei de himel
op myn wang de skimmel
foar it oare jier
Swaying Solace
words by Jan Kleefstra

Snow light fallen dead
that fingers do not entangle
sun wants to feel
do not attempt with a light step
to flutter out before the wind
with your voice you have smoothed over
the thin dance
imagine the purest counterpart
of the swaying solace
by the rope to the sky
on my cheek the fungus
for the following year
