perpetual hover (the space beyond space)

Every so often, I'll make a mix CD of all sorts of ambient MP3's to listen to at bedtime. Things that I like, things that I want to check out, etc. The one that's been in rotation for about 3 months now has been blowing my (sleeping) mind. I finally popped it into the computer to browse its contents. It was Drift Music by Jon Jenkins and Harold Budd, The Stargazer's Journey by Jonn Serrie, a few Brian Eno tunes, and I Fell Asleep At My Desk Making This Mix by Dave at LOW LIGHT MIXES. The amount of chill vibe that I've been getting from this CD has inspired me to make this creation. Therefore, I had to look for the real sonic spacemen to help me gather up some really good ambient sounds.

This mix is (once again) for the traveler among the stars. May it bring you tranquility and be the appropriate elevator music for your ascent to the cosmos. Don't forget to search out and support the artists.

your days are numbered

Everywhere we look in everyday life, we are surrounded by numbers: speed limits, item prices, time, counting sheep at night to sleep, and so on. This mix is a tribute to those everyday numbers that make our day a misery or a blessing.


I put on 2 pieces that I almost thought that I would never use, since I consider them sacred epics (12:18 by Global Communication and 1/1 by Brian Eno). But this mix calls for it. I believe that my attachment to these two songs comes from a time when I was taking a course (back in 2005) and I had put a massive amount of MP3's on disc to listen to in my spare time (since I was apart from my family for 2 months, I had nothing BUT time). Among the first songs played from the disc (along with others from Global Communication, Brian Eno, and William Basinski) were these 2 tunes. I heard them over and over at the start of every session, and welcomed them as a 'ceremonial wind-down' to a busy day. I still get that same buzz from hearing them, and I hope that you do as well. I just realized after posting the media on Mixcloud, that there are 8 songs, and that number happens to be my lucky/favorite number. No lie.


Well, wrapping up, I hope that this mix brings you peace, and more peace. Don't forget to support the artists!

as the night time pulls you in

This mix will help usher in the night for you. You can use it to relax, watch the sky go from light to dark, or sleep. As summer starts to draw to an end, we'll soon see less daylight. I'm a bit sad by this, as I've (thus far) had an amazing summer, seeing my kids growing up a bit and getting them out on bicycles everyday.


I'm hoping in the near future that I (and some friends of mine) will create some more original music that can be used for some things. I'd like to eventually find the time to put out a full length release to be given away with some nice artwork. Key phrase being 'find the time'.

Not too much to say about this mix, and perhaps less is better. I will however, say that buying Treasure by David Helpling and Jon Jenkins (third tune in the mix is from that release) was a very good decision on my part, I'm really digging it. Thanks for listening, and support the artists.
