AURAL CHROMOGRAHPHY

Ask me anything   This is my music blog. All the mixes I have ever done and will ever do will be here. I made this because I love music and I love these artists. Most of the mixes in here are CONTINUOUS like they have been since back in the analog tape days. Often times I splice in audio overtop or intermixed in the music so it’s hard to lift, but the effect is one of storytelling rather than interruptive. Share with friends!

Auralchromography 006 09.06.2014BACK TO SCHOOLTHE 90’s: THE LAST DAYS OF COLOROUR CARDIGANS WERE OUR ARMOR
There was a brief little window of time, when I started listening to anything like “decent” music but had not yet descended into the miasma of goth and punk music that would completely overtake things for quite some time and after which would alter my worldview completely. This was the 90’s. When it was suddenly okay to be weird. Where any character on TV could be identified as “grunge” by wearing a plaid shirt around their waist or wearing a dingy cardigan. We all had these. Don’t kid yourself. Everyones experience of the 90’s was different but certain things brought everyone together. It was truly a magical time. There are lots of 90’s compilations, some of the best ones are probably the ones that were coming out at the time, and those movie soundtracks, benefit albums and mixes of new artists probably best showcase the spirit of the time. This is really more about *my* experience and I think that is the real story here. We were all trapped in our own little worlds and we all talked to each other through open windows like neighbors. We were all individuals together. 
In our own little worlds, we borrowed a piece from each to make our own. Every song here I owe to the touch of someone in my orbit. 
I would borrow everyones CD’s and make my own mixes from their albums if I didn’t copy them outright.

Missing MixesWhat the wold needs now isSINGING LESSONS FOR ROBOTSOne of my most popular mixes that went on to found the entire series. Very simply, a lot of fun songs where there is a vocoder or sample of a computer voice. I remember Mick once told me that it got him laid one time while he was playing it in his car. His experience, to my knowledge, was entirely unique, but I do recall his sentiments being shared. 
Similar to the Rock Beats Scissors Project, my friend Nate and I put up flyers around the town that stated “WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS MORE __________” and then we’d fill it out as we go. One such flyer/poster remained up at The Upstage for nearly 2.5 years. This was my accompanying mix for the project like Rock Beats Scissors. 
I think this was created in 2005 but it might have been anywhere from 2003 to 2005. It was when Ceremony was no longer at Club Laga but had migrated down to The Upstage. I have no remaining copies and if there is anyone out there that has one, I would love a copy to post here. Thanks!

LOUDER THAN PRAYERS FOR LOVE

So I don’t have this mix. I have this cover left over from it in the resource files on my computer but the actual *file* of it, I cannot find. I have been going though all the mix CDs and blank CDs in my basement for this project to try to uncover this one, but I have not found it. I remember it being a decent mix too…. “Vontinka” if you are out there, I recall this was your favorite.

I made it when my podcast was flying high and I was getting mixes and stories out like clockwork. I made this one about 2 months before my longtime parter of 6 years and I were going to break-up… precipitated, somewhat, by this very mix. I recall that “Vontinka” and I were growing quite close and she is, and remains, one of the most attractive people I have ever met. This drove my current partner to yet one more round of jealousy-driven isolationism.

The already potent desperation and loneliness that I already felt, was very much the undercurrent for this mix. A later visitor, a Miss “Tana Karo”, would come along the month this was released and this mix would accompany me on my travels that month where my lust was so pervasive I literally had trouble driving.  I’m actually Impressed that I managed to press the “post” button to get this out while she was in town. Spending such intimate time with someone had my head clouded with comfort. 

This mix turned out to be the death knells of a during relationship that really did need to die. If anyone out there has this. I would love to have a copy.
