Back in April, Peter van Cooten, of Ambientblog, created the awesome mix, Lockdown. After, we talked about doing a collaboration mix. As Peter is in Holland and I am in the States we would send files back & forth adding more tracks with every pass. We had to decide on a theme and a format. In the end the format became the theme.
It worked like this:
We each take 5 minute turns and increase the sample count with each turn. So in the first turn we each start with a 5 minute track. Next turn we each use two samples, next turn 3, then 4...until we get to the final turn where each 5 minute turn contains 6 samples each. When all is said and done we end up with 42 samples used in a 60 minute mix.
I think it turned out great! Somehow this crazy format produced a fascinating mix. After finishing the mix Peter came up with the title "Fragmented Dialogue" which fit perfectly with how this beast was put together. The cover art is courtesy of Thomas Park.
