About the show

Playing tracks by

Henryk Gorecki, Stars of the Lid , Muszikas, Lustmord, Dead Can Dance and more.

This 2004 mix accreted itself around the Greek folk song “To Whom Can I Tell My Pains”, which I discovered while randomly surfing through the iTunes Music Store, and which reduced me to tears on the first listen. As a setting for it I pulled together other songs with the right levels of sadness, distance, exoticness or thrilling dissonance.

This also gave me a chance to attempt something I'd wanted to do for a while: add "serious" 20th-century classical music to a mix. This ended up as the most varied mix I've ever done: it also has folk music from several cultures, rock, electronics, and unclassifiable experimentation. I hope it works for you.

Hey sneJ, I listened to this when it first came out and now I've just found it again and am falling in love with it all over again. Thanks so much for such great and complementary music.
