searching for objects

The original name for this mix was "noisy, droney, scratchy".  Very catchy title.  That's a pretty good description of how I wanted this mix to sound.

I don't like too much noise, however.  Most of the tunes have some grit, some distortion, some white noise, some scratches but not too much.  I still wanted the mix to be very ambient, not annoying or distracting.  

I guess the Fripp & Eno cut isn't very noisy or scratchy but could be considered droney.  I'm just happy to have squeezed into a mix.  I hadn't listened to it in years & had forgotten how much I loved that track.

Of course now that I just posted the mix, Tim Hecker comes out with something new that would have fit perfectly.  And the next Infraction release from Sleepy Town Manufacture sounds like it would be a good fit too.  Oh well, I guess I'll have to save those for volume 2.

I just received the Sleepy Town disc yesterday, and I think you'll really enjoy it. TONS of vinyl scratch, even though it's on CD!

Looking forward to playing this mix, as usual, Dave.
