lowlight – i can hear the snow fall

lowlight creates mixes that are usually ambient in nature and usually have a theme, such as autumn, sleep music and stargazing. for this mix the theme is snow and you’ll find a lot of piano led music, starting with Nils Frahm from his excellent Felt album and continuing with artists that are new to this writer as well as familiar names such as Cliff Martinez, Max Richter and Harold Budd

here’s a few words from lowlight about this mix, “For some reason,when I think of falling snow, the instrument that comes to mind is the piano. Maybe it’s from years of listening to Vince Guaraldi’s Charlie Brown Christmas album. So it’s no surprise that there is a fair amount of piano music in this “snow” mix. We didn’t have any snow yet but I had been thinking about doing a “first snow” mix for awhile & decided to throw one together Friday night (16th December). Then I woke up Saturday morning to a light dusting of snow on the ground. Maybe next I should do a mix for winning the lottery. As I said there is a lot of piano music in here. I think this mix works well as an early season “snow” mix versus the more bleak mid winter drones that will show up later.
