Dutch label tonefloat and the prolific Flemish musician Dirk Serries have been working together closely for years now, but this month, they are taking their collaboration to a new level. A New Wave of Jazz is the title of a new sublabel of tonefloat and its description suggests that it will be home to music with a dedicated improvisational approach, inspired by the free jazz and DIY philosophy of Sun Ra and the El Saturn label. In this case, that means albums curated by Serries, released on limited edition LPs in custom sleeves. [...read more...]
In Christian religious music, the voice and its word dominates. In my interpretation, some composers of dark ambient and related electronic music genres from recent years have adopted this tradition of sacred music, while simultaneously deconstructing it. It is not music from a church or a monastery. Rather, it is composed of distorted echoes of such music. The bells echo to us from across a chasm in time or space, the choirs are ghostly, disembodied. Sometimes sound is literally taken apart, reduced to base elements, cracked open to reveal an inner void.

“Weird Evening Lament” is a result of my collaboration with fellow mixer WeirdwithBeard. We’ve been following each other’s mixes for quite a while and decide to knock some shit together. The result is very eclectic, as you might expect. Hopefully it’ll make as much sense to you as it did to us. [...read more...]
For the Returning Sun by Evening Of Light on Mixcloud
A special long mix, without presentation, for the people who are in need of a bit of Sun in their lives. I hope this will give you warmth and hope.
Thanks to Michael Tanner for inspiration, and to Jack de Quidt for allowing me to use his music. De Quidt’s song is the soundtrack to a short videogame by Cameron Kunzelman, which you can play here: http://heylookatmygames.com/ship/.
Welcome to the first Evening of Light mix presented by an actual human voice. Bear with me while I get the hang of it, and let me know what you think. I’ll probably continue doing music-only mixes, but the monthly mixes in which I present various new tracks will most likely feature presentation from now on. After almost four years, I felt it was time for something new. Hope you enjoy!
