Episode Date
This album is dedicated to Antonymes, an artist whose work has inspired me for years. Ian's music has been described as "rich in ambient textures and tonal arrangements that are both beautiful and haunting. If you close your eyes you can see a landscape that pulses with color and life that cannot be seen with the human eye." (Joseph Timmons, The opening track, Coming Into Silence, was Ian's contribution to a charity compilation album called Gap In Time, whose proceeds go to WHO's efforts to counteract the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. This highlights yet another side of Ian's character. His humane, down-to-earth and generous qualities shed light on the wonderful human being behind this mesmerizing music. As if this wasn't enough, Ian's an avid designer and photographer. He carved out a unique niche in photography: documenting disused properties across the UK and Europe. The cover photo of this album was shot by Ian, and is part of a great set of photos reflecting the haunting decay of abandoned buildings.

4 Years
Time goes by but memories never fade. I released this mix on this day 4 years ago, a week after my best friend passed away. It is a deeply personal mix in which I tried to express a never-before-felt outpouring of grief. Somehow the tracks I've chosen had titles that told a similar story, and those words by Megan R. Bokowski were quite consoling at the time: The time soon comes for parting, And our time is at an end, The rest of your life is starting, And we have no time at all to spend. You knew one day you’d have to go, But thought you’d have more time. We can’t reverse time’s one-way flow, But at least you’ll have this rhyme. You had your shining moments, Upon this life’s darkened stage, And in my book of wonderments, You’ll never be just another page. Like the exploding of a star, You’ve changed me in and out, Your light will travel with me far, Past when all other lights go out. Drifter’s Melody by Megan R. Bokowski

Stream of Thought
I’m lost in a stream of thoughts, afraid of controlling the dark. If hope shall come to question, it’s surprise to hesitation. Whither away for memories, hide the past from destiny. It’s a lesson to hold for, to try and gain more.

Refracted World
This mix is inspired by one of the best ambient albums I have heard in recent memory: Kaleidoscope by none other than my good friend and previous mix collaborator Tonepoet. Released on his birthday this year, he describes it as a semi-autobiographical album representing some of life changes he has been going through. What drew me to this album, besides the phenomenal music, is the message that Tom wanted to convey about seeing the world refracted through a metaphorical kaleidoscope to see its beauty with childlike wonder and innocence. Tom has a better way with words so I'm going to cite his words describing the album below. I highly encourage you to check out and purchase his albums, and if you were to ask what other ambient mixes I recommend, his Spaceman's Transmissions mixes are the first ones I'd recommend! "The title 'Kaleidoscope' was chosen as a reference to the device used (mostly) by kids to refract the world around them and display it in a fascinatingly colorful recreation. No matter how you twist and turn the device, it yields a captivating image that for a mere moment represents your entire world. I honestly can't remember a time as a child when I thought that every single representation I created wasn't the best thing ever. While this children's toy is a symmetrical world and makes a lot of sense, the adult world is asymmetrical and seen in many different and ever changing angles. We seek to (blindly and effortlessly) navigate through the ether by jumping from one distorted angle of perceived success to the next with hopes that we land on our feet. In an attempt to feel and act grown up, we've abandoned our true inner longings and dreams, our childlike wonder and innocence. Instead of 'finding the time', MAKE the time to restore yourself back to that refracted world of enthusiasm and elation with a renewed sense of how to achieve your objectives with an innocence that is a dynamic reflection of your innocent creativity. I know that I will. Peace." Making this mix was a labor of love. If you feel like giving back, consider showing your appreciation by buying me cup of a coffee. You can also share this with your friends and rate it using your podcast app. This will make it discoverable by other people. Thank you.

Slow Drifter
Holding the compass of uncertainties, Carrying the baggage of memories, The drifter is drifting along with the tides… Without boundaries or borders, Floating with the moment, The drifter is weaving timeless dreams… The journey of love and joy, Build in every pause life takes, Never holding back the voyage, The drifter survives in the passion… Miles and milestones left behind, The strides always ahead of the past, Moving forward in the distance, The drifter fades between the lines of present and future…
