Love at The End of Time



'At the time when it happens,' she had said, 'you do mean it.' He had meant it. He had not merely said it, he had wished it. He had wished that she and not he should be delivered over to the --

Something changed in the music that trickled from the telescreen. A cracked and jeering note, a yellow note, came into it. And then -- perhaps it was not happening, perhaps it was only a memory taking on the semblance of sound -- a voice was singing:

'Under the spreading chestnut tree

I sold you and you sold me --'

The tears welled up in his eyes. A passing waiter noticed that his glass was empty and came back with the gin bottle.

-George Orwell, 1984 (Ch.6)


"Love at the end of Time"

01. Nikolai Medtner - Tale Op.42-2 in C phrygian (pianist, composer)
02. Stephane Leonard - Secret Life Remix (info)
03. Aphex Twin - Power Pill Pacman
04. Explosions In The Sky - Your Hand In Mine (w/Strings)
05. Caroline - Sunrise (web)
06. DJ morsanek - The Black Isle (Byrne/Eno Remix)
07. Miho Hatori - Barracuda (web)


Note: I tend to believe that MdM best output is when things are unraveling fast. The sense of urgency to salvage a moment gives little steps that made the whole thing moves again. Or probably it's me having a mild melancholia with head swirling from some yucky liquids they make take. At anyrate, this is exactly that, one would need a certain urgency and detachment to follow the sudden dynamic change, in order to hear it all. Russian piece opening, remix of famous 1981 Eno's album, thumping Aphex Twin, and sunk deep into a collage of odd pops. It's apocalyptic view of love, a gentle remnants of feeling wrapped by maddnes of place and time. One is infinately aware of love, hate and end of time. Abstract yet very real.

    a bit melancholic sometimes anguishing but interesting list,
    Stephane Leonard’s remix is really dense

    cheers

    Love this playlist, power pill pacman on the middle sort of changes the overall sound abrupty in a good sense. Get's you ready for the grand explosions in the sky track.

    Maybe I'll try to make this combination again. This one isn't very smooth and the spacing is not natural, the Eno's remix is too long and abstract. The whole thing should be more melancholic but more inviting.

    The original idea I was trying to create was Bach cantata, you know how it changes like crazy between one section to another? And the organ sounded like weird vampire movie soundtract? (and smell modern electronica)

    (This series is good, I have plenty of high quality electronica and classic to last me several post. heh... )

    Thank you so much. I check your site often and am always grateful I did. Today, though, I listened to it as you intended and was very moved. Inventive and engaging. Your site reminds me of the best of what music blogs can do. Thanks again.
