Autumn Mix - Phantasychogeography
This was supposed to be an entry in Phantasy Records' walking mixtape competition but, silly me, I read "mixtape" and automatically thought "90 minutes, Hi Bias Chrome" - oops, showing my age there.
So there's a short version for the contest and here is the longer, unedited full version, with more development and better transitions.
It was inspired by the long walks I used to take as a kid, from our sprawling farmhouse way out in the country, into the nearest city. The pastoral calm of the country, followed by motorik bus ride into the city, the bright lights and dazzle, slowly growing more frenetic and disorienting, and then the return journey back to calm.
