Plink. Plunk. Bip. Blip Skim-skip. Fuzz. Smudge, & zzzzz . . .
more soft, electronic din from THE place for ambient file morphing!
Ambient, Glitch, Microsound & Fizz (within an over-arching Electronica domain punctuated by………..quietude). This mix opens with a short, slightly-longer-than-2-minute shard from Eno’s ‘Reflection‘, so as to set up the balance of the sounds used within mix. I’ve used longer sections on previous mixes – but this required something short & to the point.

Here’s the actual size for texting:
Have you ever looked at your past and thought of yourself as a different person? As if the choices made, words uttered, feelings felt belonged to someone else.
Clinomania is a chaotic, confused space filled with melancholy, anger, and dissociative behaviour where powerful drones mix with swirling, luscious synths, glitched audio works, ethereal voices, and sombre piano soundwork.
Your thoughts are a mess as is your life. There is a longing that cannot be remedied.
This is you.
Recorded between 2013-2016
Mixed by Wound

Life is but a fragile breath. A fleeting vapor. A glimpse; a blink . . . and then it’s gone.
Ambient, minimal, drone, a dash of glitch & some very l-o-n-g fades & segues (104 minutes, raw down to 79, mixed) and a continuation of the mix-model begun with the ‘s e n d u s t‘ series — incorporating several artists from the L-NE netlabel (file under Minimal Landscape).
This mix is dedicated to the memory of my little brother Eric:

Irradiance is Joachim Spieth’s first full length album, to be released on his own imprint Affin. It reflects a cycle of realignment in a carefully realized emotional journey. A constant motion through the layers of the tracks shape the sonic landscape, while evolving atmospheres provide a cohesive feel with shimmers of optimism.
The release will be available as a double 12” and digital, mastered by Artefacts Mastering. The album release coincides with Affin’s 10th anniversary.
