Vibrating On Two Notes

I was recently asked to produce a mix to accompany the latest issue of Carousel Magazine.

The following is from the magazine’s site: As an accompaniment to our Summer 2012 issue, we’ve invited Kranky recording artist Christopher Bissonnette to compile Vibrating On Two Notes, a 14-track continuous MP3 Mixtape (1hr00m00s / 96.28 MB)

We hope you will choose to enjoy our new issue while listening to this suggested soundtrack. NOTE: if you like what you hear, don’t hesitate to support the artists by buying their albums and going to their live shows.

Release Description from Home Normal:
Whilst most of you will know of our love for David Wenngren (of Library Tapes fame, of course), Christopher Bissonnette’s ‘In Between Words’ release on Kranky has long been a personal favourite around these parts. So when I heard about their collaboration I almost fell over myself with excitement. The result is the beautiful and noisily freckled masterpiece ‘The Meridians of Longitude and Parallels of Latitude’, mastered by the lovely Taylor Deupree. In many ways the record is a perfect hybrid of their sound, almost the truest of collaborations if you will. It is also a true Home Normal release, fitting of our original intentions for release of works. It is of a drone-like nature, yet at once melodic, intense and possessing a naturally organic graininess and warmth we so love. The cover art is a perfect match for the sound: beautiful, serene, yet freckled and blurred like a frosty window pane. The music is that of a dream, a dusty memory of something beautiful, retaining its alluring being in that which is hidden, seen but not fully recognisable. The good thing about this dream, this memory however, is that we simply have to press the ‘play’ button again when it is over.
