Owl Present

Connossieurs of bizarre and beautiful music, L'Iglootone asked me to do a mix for them and I was all like, "Totally". When I sent it over, they said it was a "chouette" present. So naturally as a non-French speaker I looked up chouette and found that it meant owl. Whaaa? Then I kept looking and found that it could also mean great. Oh. Okay. That makes much more sense, but I really like the term "owl present" too. Anyway cruise over yonder and grab my Excellent Snow mix and say hi to my Igloo friends. Hope y'all like it!

seandonson- Excellent Snow

Here's the first track on the mix, by Swiss nutcase and sometimes Yes keyboardist Patrick Moraz. I originally heard this song when TommyBoy posted this ridiculously awesome video on my myspace...


Vocoders+keytars+big poodle hair= Rad.

Patrick Moraz- Video Games (How Basic Can You Get)

i love the combination plates. like a recipe that is practiced and brought on the picnic. such colorful sounds that play on your palette and move you into places you never knew you had. its amazing how music does that, it can shrink distance and welcome you into its home like cozy guests.
see you at the picnic.

does anyone know the name of the last song he's playing in the video?

seandonson said...

That switched on bach-esque piece is Chess from the Future Memories album Tim.

Thanks everyone for your kind words on the mix guys, they mean a lot to me.

"chouette" sounds also a little bit outdated. more like "neat" :)
