“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!

It’s been a few years since I got to know Canadian duo AUN (Julie Leblanc, Martin Dumais) from their album Black Pyramid on Cyclic Law. Compared to that album, Alpha Heaven feels a bit less dense, with less focus on heavy drones, and more on open spaces, although both are still present. The main chunk of this album is extremely pleasant and mostly calm. More so than previous works, Alpha Heaven seems to have something of an outer space setting for me, which is of course stimulated by some of the titles, which suggest celestial bodies and exploration.

Jessica Curry is an English composer and co-director (together with Dan Pinchbeck) of videogame studio The Chinese Room. Like many people, I first became familiar with her work through the award-winning soundtrack for the game Dear Esther, an experimental attempt to tell a ghost story in an interactive medium. [...] Jessica is currently working on the soundtrack for the studio’s upcoming game Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture. In a recent email conversation, we discussed her background, current works, and some thoughts on the relationship between space, sound, and play. [...read more...]

The Floating World is the main artistic project of Amanda Votta, specialising in flute-based ambient music with dark and mysterious undertones. Starting as a solo flute project with its first releases eight years ago, it has since attracted numerous collaborators on various instruments and, occasionally, spoken word. Recent albums The Apparition and We Hunted have appeared on Cyclic Law and Reverb Worship, respectively, and this label attention will hopefully propel Votta’s music into a wider audience. Her latest album, The Wood Beyond the World, is just out on Eclipse, the subsidiary label of Cyclic Law. [...] The interview below is the result of an email conversation I had with Amanda. My intention was not just to give her the opportunity to tell us a bit about the history of The Floating World, but also to get her to delve a bit deeper into literary and art history, a topic I know she enjoys. As you’ll see, those promises were fulfilled, as Amanda has a lot to say on the subject. [...read more...]
