driftage

Drifting...floating...coasting...gliding...swimming...

Whatever word you choose, all would describe this mix perfectly. It's just a nice collection of mostly new tunes, all with a drifting, floating feel.

This mix works great for sleeping, enjoy.

eppur si muove(and yet it moves)

The mixes are coming fast and furious! I'm trying to crank out a few more than normal. This one seems to be fast paced compared to the usual mixes found here.

This creation is similar to a mix I did in 2008 called "Motion for Relief". Ambient dub would be the best way to describe this installment. Not all the tunes are "dub" but most have beats, some more prominent than others. The feel is still pretty laid back, with just enough going on to give a sense of movement. Hence the title, "eppur si muove(and yet it moves)", which is apparently a phrase uttered by Galileo.

Enjoy

flicker & fade

This is the third mix I’ve done with a shortwave radio theme. Many of the tunes have noise & static already built in. Sometimes radio washes have been added.

As with past shortwave mixes, the actual shortwave recordings come courtesy of Myke Dodge Weiskopf. He runs a great site dedicated to shortwave music.

This mix was originally posted on MixCloud by folks at Fluid Radio. I am honored that Fluid Radio posted one of my mixes among their growing list of great music. I'm posting here to allow direct download. That's one feature I wish MixCloud had, the option of downloading the mixes. It's a great community over at MixCloud that would be even better with downloads.

I hope you enjoy vol. 3 in the shortwave series.

cloud mapping


I have no idea why I called this mix "cloud mapping". It started off as something about the sky, then aerial views of something, then blah blah blah...then it ends up as "cloud mapping".

Most of the music is new or new-ish. There is no big time theme in this mix, just good, drifting ambient music. I guess you could picture yourself flying over clouds while listening to this. My favorite track in the mix is from Christopher Willits' release "Live on Earth Vol.1". It's the track, "
Stars and Plants (live) – Kyoto, Japan – June 19, 2008".

Enjoy some good ol' floaty ambient.
