can you hear silence? [analogue monologues vol. 2.1]




vol. 2.1

how relevant is a music mix such as analogue monologues in this vast virtual abundance never seen before? this was one of the questions i asked myself during the last year which didn’t see any release of such mix tape at all. surely planet earth doesn’t need too much to keep spinning and thus, in today’s world irrelevance is relative. lets put it simple then: needed or not, this new volume contains 11 songs all sourced from a music platform called soundcloud. and as a matter of fact, the result turned into something unexpected and stochastic but exactly this shows the beauty of pure chance. not knowing what you’re looking for but happy with what you found, at least for a moment. it’s like swimming on open ocean where every wave may shift you towards a new direction. and this is how this very compilation came about, sounding completely different in its first stages but eventually evolving into this eclectic mix of tunes, which may have all been created with different backgrounds and intentions, but yet makes it feel perfectly ok to put them one next to another.
the next few volumes of this compilation series will explore several virtual spheres of sharing music. there are many more treasures out in the open which want to be found and it is up to us to keep exploring. although, i’m not sure i’ll ever come across the one thing i hope finding some day: silence. mind you, who knows this state of the art won’t be too loud to be endured? meanwhile, happy drifting and, of course, listening folks……
