Stillness Within Motion


by Sven Geier -

We end the year as we began - with a mix from Paul Asbury Seaman. And a fine way to end the year it is. All of the music in this set is from 2020, making it an appropriate way to say goodbye to this tumultuous year.

Here's what Paul says about the mix:

“Stillness within motion is a concept that comes from Zen Buddhism and the martial arts. It always seemed to me a good way to try to live ordinary life as well. This program is an effort to expressing that concept musically: slow sequencers mixed with Sufi-infused sax, tabla and harp and electric guitar. Mixing genres a little, while still within ambient sensibilities.”

I'm not sure what 2021 will bring but I'm sure there will be plenty of music to help us get through it. And I'll continue to crank out mixes that will keep us centered while also taking us on inner and outer journeys.

Seaman is again true to form. He has a good ear for music and makes excellent choices for his mixes, and listeners can only be grateful he brings those to us. Whether those selections coexist under the premised theme is another matter. The other Seaman telltale is the "runaway track" (i.e. the finale that overstays over 10 minutes to fill out the hour). The mix is a keeper but would have compiled better without the Veraart and with a reasonable Sequentia cut.
