Arc 6; the unplanned culmination of a mix series that I didn’t mix. The series concentrated upon the works & legacy of Brian Eno (solo work, collaborations & production projects with other artists). Joe Miles, a.k.a. 12vman, came up with the idea for the series & then contacted me for assistance with the cover art – which I happily created. Along the way I made a suggestion or 2 regarding tracks for future editions and that was that . . . (or so I thought).

The series was more compilation than mix because the tracks weren’t segued, simply ordered by track – nevertheless it was well received by me & the rest of the community.

Then, after he had completed the 5th edition – we got to talking about another “final” edition. Eno had just produced Paul Simon’s “Surprise” and that got our wheels turning . . . Joe mailed me a CD with his tracks & I got to work. At the time I was using Roxio Music Editor – which was nice software for a beginning mixer, but was limited in its segue ability. But we punched it out to rave reviews & that was that . . . (or so I thought).

Last Christmas, I reloaded the tracks into Audacity & remastered it using the same track order – but rather than individual tracks (segued, but with electronic bzzt in-between those tracks) I output it as a single mp3 for zero interruption on playback.

And so, here it is: Arc.6
