The sorrow felt in Autumn as forms slowly dissolve.
The concept for doing an autumn-themed mix came to me many years ago when I became hooked on the Twin Peaks series, and more importantly David Lynch's soundtrack featuring Julee Cruise. The captivating, melancholy textures and ethereal female vocals led me to seeking more of this sound, much later finding Sam Rosenthal's venerable Projekt Records Label with the likes of Frolic and Love Spirals Downwards. The genre carries a mysterious and atmospheric quality that I have long associated with the season of autumn, as the mystery of the unknown is glimpsed through the transition in nature from life to death. Vastly different than any of my other ambient mixes, this one explores the realms of vocal atmospheres, goth-textured ambient, and peacefully melancholy moods. This mix is dedicated to David Lynch, Julee Cruise, Sam Rosenthal, Samhain's thin veil, witches, goddesses, the paintings of Tor Lundvall, and the magick of autumn.
