Compiled & mixed by low light mixes for Ambient Music Guide, June 2015
Ghosts of The Future is an exclusive mix for Ambient Music Guide by low light mixes
low light mixes is a fantastic blog run by Dave Michuda of Wisconsin, USA. Dave has fascinating taste in downtempo and ambient sounds - including loads of artists I've never heard before - and has an uncanny knack for creating highly evocative mix titles.
I approached Dave with the idea of each of us doing a guest mix for each other. I thought it would be fun if we gave each other a themed title to create a mix around. I gave him the title Ghosts Of The Future and this stellar mix is his contribution.
For a mix called Ghosts of the Future I immediately thought of the film, Interstellar. With its time dilation and communication from Murph's "ghost," the soundtrack was the perfect launch point for this mix. I also thought of voices as ghosts and worked in some spoken word excerpts here & there, as well as using tracks that had voices or vocoder. Overall I hope the mix conveys a strange, otherworldly feel to it.
My contribution for low light mixes is called Lapse Into Reverie - you can listen to it here.
