I looked with chameleon eyes upon the changing face of the world

I looked with chameleon eyes upon the changing face of the world

Playing tracks by

Kemialliset Ystävät, Glynis Johns, Jean C Roche, Yamasuki , Elm and more.

A continuous mix that I began working on in the summer of 2010 after hearing Kemialliset Ystävät’s “Kun Mina Uppoan” and Glynis Johns’ “Schlum Roomi” for the first time, on the same day. To my ears, these tracks shared a similarly strange yet innocent quality. I began to daydream, imagining a cluster of alien children who fell to earth and attempted to cope with and communicate in their unfamiliar—and sometimes scary--surroundings. The mix, which I made quickly and instinctively, as I do a radio show, came to represent these tiny beings’ journey of discovery. I completed the mix in early 2011 and distributed a few copies to friends as New Year's gifts. The title is a quote by Anaïs Nin. NOTE: The timestamps are approximate as many tracks overlap.

A dream within a dream, this mix still manages to cast a spell for me, so I thought I'd share it here.

I am enjoying this mightily! Glad we had that conversation about radio in Lindy's garage this weekend. The segue from Yamasuki into Elm is so good!
