Unfold the Universe

Unfold the Universe

Chart positions

This show was 1st in the global chill chart, 3rd in the global ambient chart and 3rd in the global chillout chart.

A million miles from Earth, the James Webb Space Telescope has arrived in it's parking spot at Lagrange Point #2, the perfect place to search the heavens for faint light from the most distant observable galaxies in the early universe. This mix tells the story of the Webb observatory as it seeks to "Unfold the Universe."

The telescope's primary mirror, the largest mirror ever flown into space, is too wide to fit into the launch rocket in one piece. So it is segmented into 18 hinged, hexagonal pieces on so it can fold up for launch and unfold in space.

That unfolding is one of the themes of this mix and can be seen in track titles like "Tentative Unfolding", "Watching It Unfold" and "Unfold pt. 2." The story of the Webb telescope is told in other tracks such as "Lagrange Point" "Gathering the Starglow" "Looking Into the Past" and "The Light Beyond."

The tracklist is in the comments.

Oh wow, this is just gorgeous! I know nothing about ambient music and have mostly just listened to your acoustic/vocal and classical mixes in the past but I'm really getting into these ambient ones too! I wouldn't know where to start otherwise. This one is so soothing for the soul. Thank you sir!

Thanks for your kind words! I'm so glad you're getting into the ambient stuff. There's so much of it out there it can be rather intimidating. Hopefully these mixes will help. Thanks also for subscribing! Your support means a lot. Cheers!

Well I've now listened to all 334 LLM mixes and dove down musical digressions inspired by LLM'S curations. I've discovered music i didn't think was conceivable, sounds so strange yet familiar and comforting, while in our covid cocoons. Now i will embark on some of LLM'S favorite listens and see where that takes me. My ears are already smiling! Thanks for the fantastic trip. Looking forward to more.

Wow! The perseverance and dedication you showed in getting through all the mixes are truly impressive. I don't think I could have done it and made the damn things. ;-) Thanks so much for making the journey and for all your kind words about many of the mixes. I appreciate your thoughtfulness and support. Cheers!

Very nice mix. Do the tracks just 'come to you' as you are putting an idea for a mix together or do you have them categorised or tagged?? I have a substantial music/ambient collection but find that I forget about most of the tracks that I have and it is so nice to hear discover them again in someone else's mix.

I have that same problem, which is why many of my mixes skew toward new music. It's simply easier to remember albums and sort through tracks. For some of my themed mixes, like this one, I search my music files for keywords like "unfold" "light" "stars" "past" and "mirrors." Thanks for checking out the mix and commenting. Cheers!
