4. Fingers In The Noise - A Tribute to the Pioneers of Electronic Ambient Music

Fingers In The Noise - A Tribute to the Pioneers of Electronic Ambient Music

On this mix, originally appearing on Headphone Commute podcast in May of 2017, we celebrate some of the pioneers of early electronic ambient music, with the help of a long-time contributor, Fingers in the Noise. Here are all of the first explorations into the then unnamed genre, sometimes referred to as avant-garde, new-music, or simply electronic music. Pictured for the cover art of this mix is Laurie Spiegel, an American composer, who, while working in Bell Laboratories in the early 70s, composed with analog synthesizers using interactive software she wrote herself. Some of this music is hard to come by, with the early experiments a bit difficult to digest, so I thank Laurent Bisch for his wonderful selection of tracks for this very special tribute. Full track listing and more details on the mix can be found here: http://hcdi.gs/PioneersTribute And as always, please enjoy responsibly and support the featured artists!

Mike Lazarev - Accidental (Piano Day)

Huge thanks to Nils Frahm and his brand new Piano Day (http://http://www.pianoday.org) for inspiring me to finally setup for proper recording my piano with two microphones, RME Babyface, and Ableton... This is a very short piece that I composed on the spot, as I was too excited to see the fruits of this first recording! Now I can play with mic positioning, multi-layering and software effects! :)

8. Fingers in the Noise - Drone Journey

Fingers in the Noise - Drone Journey

And just like that, new things begin. This morning is another day, sleepily yawning into the autumn sky. It’s all about cycles. It’s all about change. “Everything changes,” a car salesman said to me when I asked about the improvements over the last year’s model during my test drive. I’m sure he knew how right he was. For today’s special podcast I invite you to contemplate this and many other important life lessons as you travel alongside Fingers in the Noise. It’s a journey you’ll enjoy… "This mix was first and foremost created just for me. The selected pieces helped me relax and relieve the stress of everyday life. I’m also happy that I could share this music, and introduce you to the less known artists. I hope you will enjoy this timeless journey as the sound transports you to a distant landscape and evokes a meditation for a better world." Full track listing and more details on the mix can be found here: http://reviews.headphonecommute.com/2014/09/30/fingers-in-the-noise-drone-journey/ As always, please enjoy responsibly and support the featured artists!

ASC - Headphone Commute Mix

I’ve got a mix, and yes, another mix for you, and really, I spoil you, don’t you think? There’re all these albums to enjoy and then I go ahead and get these artists to select their favorites for you, to pave a journey through their mind with all these sounds and all this music. James Clements, producing under his ASC moniker, has recently jumped to the forefront of my favorite composers when it comes to atmospheric, drifting, and dark space music (because you know, if space had music, that’s what it would sound like, right?). And at the heart of this selection are a few of his very own ambient meditations, sonic reflections, and spatial retreat. Join us for an unforgettable departure with no particular arrival in time… For a full track listing and a download of a higher bitrate MP3, please stop by headphonecommute.com and subscribe to our podcast!

13. Roel Funcken - The Voynich Manuscript Mix

Roel Funcken - The Voynich Manuscript Mix

Today I’m honored to present you with Roel Funcken‘s "The Voynich Manuscript Mix", which was published on Headphone Commute in four individual parts, and is now available here as a single continuous 4:32 hour mix!!! On this amazing journey, Funcken masterfully weaves in his favorite ambient and modern classical pieces with the tracks from The Voynich Manuscript album, an upcoming release on Dronarivm as Legiac. This is a fantastic trip through music, layered with not only skillful selection, but Funcken’s expert touch of mixology, blended with a few effects to smooth out your ride. I could honestly go on and on about it, but, as with most cases for these things, the music speaks louder. Full tracklisting here: http://hcdi.gs/VoynichMix Enjoy!

14. For Monique

For Monique

I'm still trying to achieve that hushed, muted, and intimate sound ala Nils Frahm, with his nicely recorded upright and dampened strings... It's harder to do it on my baby grand, because I can't add the felt between the hammers and the strings. This is the closest I can come with a microphone near the keys, so that you can [hopefully] hear the mechanics... This short impromptu is for Monique Recknagel, founder of Sonic Pieces label which has brought so many smiles to my life...

15. TRACK PREMIERE : Mike Lazarev - Dislodged

TRACK PREMIERE : Mike Lazarev - Dislodged

So… this is slightly awkward… When it comes to promoting my very own music, I seem to be at loss for words. And yet, I accept that self-promotion is part of every composer’s journey, at the end of each release. This album has been in the making for a very long time. In fact, it was complete before I even left New York, and I’ve been “sitting on it”, afraid to let it out, too weak to let it breathe. And yet here it is, fulfilling the unavoidable and at times desirable closure to something I meant to leave behind. Beneath the dark veil of the night, covered in an intoxicating somber solitude, somewhat sorrow and slightly sweet, ‘Dislodged’ is a place of isolation, melancholy, and a bit of heartache. Composed and intended to be listened to as the second half to the ‘Unhinged’ mini-album, this intimate recording of my beloved instrument explores the outer reaches of spatial and reductionist pianism, occasionally echoed by the song of a lonely cello, contributing to the detachment, displacement, and dislocation of a damper pedal, controlling the felt rail which muffles the hammers against the strings. This is where my music lives… The ten-piece mini-album, beginning with the same-titled “Dislodged” track, which is being premiered exclusively today on Headphone Commute, is out on November 10th, on 1631 Recordings. Recommended for fans of solo piano music, and my all-time favorite composers who inspire me, such as Nils Frahm, Otto A. Totland, Julien Marchal, Goldmund, Dustin O’Halloran, Fabrizio Paterlini, and Sophie Hutchings, and many, many more…
