Tinfoil Hat Society - Combobreaker Podcast 51 (04-12-2013)



Combobreaker Podcast #51
As I announced earlier, Tinfoil Hat Society will show us various obscure genres in four different sessions. Today is the day that the first mix is released! This man, also known for his projects called Deluge Of Sound and Majoor Moeilijk, also has a softer side, which he will share with you all now. Grab your headphones, curl up on the sofa and enjoy this awesome ambient mix!

This mix presents a variety of dark ambient and drone, with soundscapes from 1977 to 2013.
I love dark ambient with an organic touch to it, so I had to include a personal favorite in the NASA recordings.
These are recordings made by the Voyager space probes that are currently still travelling through the universe. What you hear are actually electromagnetic waves that originate from things like solar wind, magnetic fields surrounding planets, atmospheric noise from Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus and more.
These electromagnetic waves have been translated into sound waves, thus providing us with a strangely ambient-like sound.
Apart from that, I've included a few old tracks (1990-1995) and a few very recent ones. It's amazing how, with much less technology as today, these artists were still able to create such a pressing atmosphere.
Lastly I've also included a track of my own, which has a base of the recordings of a thunderstorm layered with a vocal recording that was slowed down by a massive factor. Of course I've added and edited quite a few things in a DAW, but I'm quite content with the organic feel it has.
A little bit of background on the whole thing, hope you enjoy! For the best experience, listen late at night.
