Reflecting the Hybrid - by Chris Fraley, a member of the Hypnos Recordings Forums
This mix is a rare treat. It's a guest mix from Chris Fraley. I know Chris through correspondence and postings at the Hypnos Forum.
I've been a member of the forum for a long time and I really enjoy the community there. In this time of social networks and twitter it's nice to see that a classic forum still survives and thrives, mainly because of a shared love of ambient music. Activity there ebbs and flows but there's always interesting topics and people hanging out.
As I said, I know Chris through the forum and as the two of us have similar tastes, I offered him the opportunity to do a mix for the blog. He was hesitant at first because he'd never done something like this before. But he decided to give it a shot and I'm very glad he did.
Chris said he "ended up making a mix based on some of the recent (2012 or later) neo-classical music that embodies the spirit of ambient and experimental acoustics." The result is perfect.
I hope this is just the first of more guest mixes we may see from Chris.
