The Light Within

I’ve been noticing a trend in the past year or so: my mix production is cluster-like. When I make one, many follow in short order, apparently…

This is the fourth in two months, and just before that, around the Holidays, I did four in a month!

In any case…

Ambient mixes I love doing because they require a completely different approach… There is no beat matching going on; it’s a totally musical job.

Now, ever since I discovered and bought Mixed in Key — probably one of the best DJing software I’ve ever bought — making ambient mixes is even more interesting. What this software does is analyze your tracks to find out what key they’re in so you can mix harmonically…

I use it for all my mixes, but it really has become invaluable to create ambient sets like this one.

I am an amateur musician and possess a rather good ear, but this software means I can whip up a two-hours mix (in this case) in just a little more than double it’s length, and that doesn’t mean I skimp on the musical research. Nope. I just don’t waste as much time figuring out if the tracks are compatible harmonically…

Anyways…

Here’s the result of my latest endeavour: I sincerely hope you will enjoy it!

Monsieur Seb’s Cosmix vol. 6: Set the Controls for the Heart of the Ultraworld

Some mixes just beg to be recorded.

Barely two months since the last installment in the series comes a new one.

The pieces just fell into place, or, more appropriately, the sculpture was already in the stone, all I had to do was remove the excess material, to paraphrase what a great sculptor once said.

So, here it is, in all its glorious two hours, fifty-five minutes and 40 seconds, my new 30 tracks-large sound sculpture.

It is all at once very different and totally similar to its predecessors.

It’ll make you groove, move, sway and play, it’ll take you through all kinds of emotions, ideas and dreams.

Or so I humbly hope.

Please abuse responsibly.
