“The Sun” Mix by passEnger

I always found out that there are some minor themes in music, which lead musicians to really express something personal and powerful thru music.
Of course major themes like ‘love’, ‘loneliness’, ‘rage’ and so on are quite standardized and predictable in the way they are expressed.  Some others, a little less common in music, like (the first that comes to my mind) ‘future’, ‘travelling’, and in this case, ‘sun’, are anyway so powerful and specific that the musicians are often “more” challenged to fully express sonically what they perceive from the theme itself.

I’ve always been fascinated by the way the ‘sun’ leads musicians to create warm, suffused, kaleidoscope-like melodies and shining, translucent and psychedelic atmospheres.

So finally I decided to pick the most inspiring sun-related tracks to do a kind of podcast. It is ideally divided into three part: at first, the tracks with most direct relation to it (kind of a morning/rising section) then the “psychedelic/opalescent” section, and finally a more dark/introspective/spacey section that leads to a peaceful conclusion.

Hope you like the work, catch the feeling and of course enjoy the music.
