slo mo

Here's the first mix for 2010. It's called slo_mo because all the tunes are slow & droney.

One aspect of this mix that makes it a bit different is the use of a few "stretched" tracks. I think I've mentioned this program here before, it's called "
Paul's Extreme Sound Stretch". I couldn't find a link to it, but at one time, on the web, there was a version of Beethoven's 9th Symphony that had been stretched to 24 hours.

I stretched 3 songs for the mix,
Eno - Music for Airports, Laetetur Cor (Choir of the Abbey of Saint Wandrille) and Budd & Eno - A Stream With Bright Fish. Those tracks along with the others combine for a very slow mix that works pretty well for sleeping(I couldn't make past the 20min mark twice last night).

Underwater - Lost in the Sub Aquatic Cosmos by Astromatt

I found this great mix over at SoundCloud. It's a mix from Music Library and Soundtracks of '60's & '70's. It has a cool vibe that never devolves into retro kitsch. I'm definitely going to try and track down some of this music to use in future mixes. Astromatt also has another similar mix called "Submerged - Into the Deep Blue Sea", which is excellent as well.

Between these mixes & seeing the movie "Nine", I'm on a quest to dig up old Italian & French soundtracks.
