“Life can only be remembered backwards, but it must be lived forwards.”
The central piece provides the title for this mix: Solace – “Comfort in sorrow, misfortune. Consolation.” This Fovea Hex track literally breathes consolation in every single note, so it seemed a good starting point for this mix.
It is also one of the few tracks in the mix that are included in its full length.
As usual in my mixes, most of the tracks are only short fragments of the original piece, merged together to create an atmosphere that may be different from what the artist originally intended.
