This mix was inspired by Piano Day on March 28th. The Piano Day website, pianoday.org, has this awesome random note generator. I highly recommend playing around with it. I made an audio recording of my random notes and then messed with it by mixing it with a backwards version and a slowed down version and adding a bit of reverb. And that’s what got the mix going.
Next I stumbled across an amazing recording on SoundCloud here… https://soundcloud.com/hey-exit/every-recording-of-gymnopedie-1
Brendan Landis, recording as Hey Exit, took every recording he could find of Satie’s Gymnopedie #1 and played them all at the same time, layered on top of each other, timestretched to the length of the longest recording. The 60 plus recordings combine to create an ethereal, phasing shifting version the famous Gymnopedie #1.
Other artists include Nils Frahm, Harold Budd, Roedelius, Roger Eno, Akria Rabelais, Steve Roach & more.
