Winterpracht



Listen to this voice...
Like two people whose paths seem to cross and then they don't...
There is some neutrality here. No, I wouldn't call it neutrality ... but a need to concentrate on each sound, so that every blade of grass would be as important as a flower...
It could be like a break on the radio. Such signals sometimes sound as if they lasted an entire life.
Of future, or past, and outside time...
Listen.

After 5 weeks on holiday, returning to Berlin in mid January feels somewhat like being cast out of Eden. Fortunately, unlike those other postlapsarians, I've been exiled with a decent record collection.
This mix was done on Traktor with edits in Wavelab.

  1. Ha ha! Part of your ongoing fascination with voice-based (as opposed to vocal) tunes? Perhaps there's a loophoop challenge in that theme?

  2. In navigating the distinction?

  3. Somehow this had disappeared. Now it's reappeared.
