About the show

Playing tracks by

Jacaszek, Murcof, Peter Broderick, Subheim, Hecq and more.

The original purpose behind this mix was to compile some of my favorite modern classical recordings of 2008. As I progressed through adding tracks one after another, this one hour compilation turned into a journey, full of dark passageways, creaking stairways, and dusty light. Traversing the abandoned cathedral that houses this sound, one can imagine unlocking cobweb doors to reveal sighing ghosts and distant echoes. The mood changes from dark to light, from evil to beautiful, from present to nostalgic. I have finally decided to share this music, because the featured artists here deserve recognition and my highest regards. Thanks to all the participating artists and labels who allowed me to include their work!
