Floating Through Moonlight

My musical friend, Paul Asbury Seaman, has given us another gift in this beautiful collection.  Paul picked out the tunes and the order & I stitched them together to form the mix.  It was a joy to assemble.

Here's what Paul had to say about the mix:

"This is another bedtime, dreaming, unwinding, floating-away-on-an-interior-journey mix. The starting inspiration came from Michael DeMaria’s piece, “Moonlight” from his 2004 album The River.  I was so struck by how precisely the music evoked the image of moonlight on water. I have always been drawn to rivers and from the early days of ambient/electronic music more than forty years ago, with the likes of Kitaro and Tangerine Dream, I have described this genre as “journey music”—Silk Road journeys, interstellar journeys and journeys down a moonlit river."

Thanks to Paul for another Stellar collection of tunes.

As always, excellent selections and cohesive mixing. However, the verb "Floating" does not come to mind. In the first ten minutes we are more in a perpetual motion. There is a floating sense in the next 6 minutes or so, but by 16:30 we have a back beat, and we have lots of percussion until the end. Setting aside the title, great stuff!

I understand your point on the title. I guess different folks think of floating in different ways. As always, thanks for listening!
