For Various Artists
So I was super-duper broke for most of the year, which precluded me buying much music, which precluded me recording very many DJ sets.
So, of course, I leapt down the music-nerd rabbit hole by recording six short DJ sets, each named for a composer or pair of composers:
- For Benjamin Britten
- For Olivier Messiaen
- For Bela Bartok
- For Kurt Weill & Bertolt Brecht
- For Karlheinz Stockhausen
- For Aaron Copland & Leonard Bernstein
These are almost certainly the most dork-heavy sets I’ve ever worked out – but there are some good moments in them besides. I have grandiose plans to record commentary tracks for each of these, talking about each track and why it matches each composer, but that can wait for now.
