Shwantology : 2/Blogariddims 1 Ambient/Electronic/Cassical mix



Another classical/electronic/ambient excursion from myself and Slug. If you liked the last one, ya should dig this:

Encouraged by the success of the first Shwantology set, we've decided to delve deeper into the world of ambient music for our contribution to the Blogariddims series, and the result is this follow up to February's mix. Progression is the name of the game for us, so our aim with this set was to widen our field of vision and hone our techniques to try and build on the original concept. Unlike the first time round, we had a working method, and an idea of what to aim for, so in the intervening months suitable tunes had been noted, sequences considered, and CDrs compiled - though as spontaneity seems to be an essential part of the process, we didn’t go too far in planning things in advance...

I checked out some of this last night and it was very nice. Subscribed to, and am well excited by the prospect... nice one, Droid - hope you got the illegible letter from me OK the other day.

I also found podcasts from FWD and VP Records... :cool:

Arrived safe and sound. Good to see that your handwriting is the exact opposite of the calm and assured tones of your voice. :D

I might send a scrwaled reply back, and we can have an illegibility competition!

You want more soundclashes btw? got gbs and gbs of audio - old and new....

I have been listening to this when the rest of the house sleeps. And I have really started to get into it. At first i thought it wasn't as coherent as the first ambient mix you and slug did for SC but over time it has really grown on me.

I like the way it isn't all 'lie back and let the ambient wash take you away', At times it is, instead, slightly unsettling and like Adrift by Soundslike1981 it has a sense of a journey being undertaken.

Some beautiful moments where a piece of music breaks through the mixing like sun from behind the clouds.



Thanks Jenks - One of the hardest things in this game is trying to listen objectively to something youve worked on yourself, so astute and perceptive comments from people who've gone to the trouble of listening properly are invaluable.

And you seem to pretty much have hit the nail on the head there... :)
