This show was 10th in the global experimental ambient chart, 32nd in the global experimental chart and 69th in the global ambient chart.
A word of warning first: this is nót an ambient mix intended to relax or create a calm atmosphere. It is a 'create-your-own-movie' soundtrack with some rather intense climaxes.
Its title, Radical Candor, comes from the (management) philosophy described by former Google and Apple executive Kim Scott. In short, it argues that feedback (on behaviour) is most effective if it is 'challenging' but at the same time shows that you 'care'.
A music collage is anything but a management philosophy of course. But still, I felt there was a resemblance: the mix is 'caring' at times but can also be quite 'challenging' to the listener. At least, that was my intention.
Anyway: I also just liked the way the words sound: Radical Candor. So here it is.
