Cinema Atmospherica

As with so many of these mixes this one grew out of one particular recording.  In this case it was The Revenant soundtrack by Ryuichi Sakamoto with Alva Noto.  It's an absolutely gorgeous film score and I knew I needed to build a mix around it.

This mix, as the title suggests, is fairly atmospheric in feel and sound.  The tracks used are a combo of newer recordings & old ones too, with The Revenant making three appearances.  That soundtrack is definitely going to be on my best of list at the end of 2016.

That was ace. Low Light Mixes might not get many comments but I think you're doing a great job. My enduring memory of my holiday to Berlin last year was "Suspended in Air", one of your mixes. The Revenant has an excellent soundtrack and while playing this mix I swear the room became several degrees colder.

Ashley, Thanks for stopping by & thanks for commenting. You're right there aren't too many comments anymore here on blogspot. Most of the social interaction seems to have migrated over to Mixcloud.

I haven't listened to Suspended In Air in a looooooong time. I'll have to give another spin.

I'm glad you like the new mix, I wasn't so sure about it at first because the only cuts I was fully invested in were The Revenant tracks. But soemhow it all fit together nicely. Thanks for listening.

Hi Dave
I believe your mixes are well curated and finely crafted. My problem is finding time to feast on your creations. I'm still hungry though, and looking forward to your next installment. All the best.

Another amazing mix. I can't believe I hadn't heard of Johann Joannsson before. What an incredible track from him.
