luv370 Unnatural Mystic

Unnatural Mystic

for a brief moment the fabric of time and space folded in on itself creating an inter-dimensional vortex. it was at that instance the Unnatural Mystic appeared above us, hovering motionless in the sky. as it set it’s gaze upon us we slowly drifted upwards, lifted on layers of rhythms and sounds from the future past. entranced by the journey. lost in space.

luv368 You May Never Go Home

You May Never Go Home

he wakes up every morning in his beautiful apartment, goes to his ideal job, earns enough to live a satisfying and comfortable life. but lately he finds himself feeling too comfortable and less satisfied, in fact he is even a little bored. he needs to shake things up, break free from the monotony of his routine, even if only for a little while. a vacation, that’s what he needs.

searching for the ideal holiday he stumbles upon a travel agency specializing in “extreme” vacation destinations whose slogan is “vacations so good you may never go home!”. intrigued he sets up an appointment that day and heads on over to their office to discuss options. when he arrives he is sat at a table with two representatives who go right into their spiel. they talk about exotic locales with lots of excitement, about being taken out of your element to gain a new understanding of the world and yourself. emphasizing that it will be an experience he will never forget.

completely sold on the idea and very much ready to go on an adventure the agency reps hand him a pen and a contract. hastily going over the details he signs on the dotted line, thrilled at finally getting the change of pace he was yearning for. then something from inside the pen pricks his finger. suddenly he starts feeling woozy, voices get muffled, his vision blurs and he passes out.

after what feels like an eternity of drugged unconsciousness he wakes up lying on the floor of a less than reputable establishment that he does not recognize. as he tries to stand he notices that people around him are speaking in a language he doesn’t understand and can’t place. he reaches for his cell phone and wallet, but they are gone. leaving the barroom he steps out into bright daylight onto a street he’s never been on before. this is when he realizes that he is in a foreign country with no money and no passport.

this is the adventure the agency had planned. they would strand him in a far off land with nothing and see if he can find his way home. so still a bit dazed but determined, with a will to survive and no other options, he sets off on an adventure homeward bound.

this deep dive into original movie scores is an attempt to soundtrack his journey.

luv365 A Burnt God Reboot

A Burnt God Reboot

five years ago i put up a mixtape called Robot Ground Beat comprised of techno music that was so heavily influenced by jazz that, at points, it veered right into it. while putting that mix together i came across an odd strain of downtempo electronic “jazz” deep cuts. here is a mix of the sounds found that day. a weird and wonderful “b side” companion to Robot Ground Beat where techno producers slow down and put some jazz on it.

I Am Trumpeter Landfrey

Trumpeter Landfrey’s story is a complicated one as it starts at the end and ends at the beginning. through this collection of late sixties odd pop psyche rock we experience Landfrey’s final days; his memories, regrets, acceptance and death. after which we witness him reborn into a world of new beginnings full of love, loss, darkness, lightness, satisfaction and finally, recognition. all to end up right where we started with Trumpeter Landfrey’s introduction.
