Dream Weapons present: ANTIQUES & COLLECTABLES C60

As always I followed my muse and this time I was led to compile an(other) exquisite Baroque/Classical era mix for you. One hour of immersive instrumental works with densely woven textures made of harpsichord, viola da gamba, theorbo, glass harmonica(!), violins et cetera. I tend to associate these olden soundscapes with dusty cobwebs, old master paintings, haunted castles and lamenting ghosts - which probably explains the old school doom metal cover art -Moahaha

-Classical playlists will always be a bit of a mess, as there’s so much info/text for each track - so I got to leave something out. But you can always google your way to further info.

1 Jean-Baptiste Lully / Harmonia - Gavotte in B-minor
2 Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach / Mahan Esfahani - Sonata in Bb, H32 - 2 Andante
3 Johann Gottlieb Naumann / Bruno Hoffmann, Gustav Scheck, Emil Seiler & August Wenzinger - Andante & Grazioso in C Major: (Tempo di Menuetto) II
4 Luigi Boccherini / Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante - Quintetto: IV. In Re maggiore g. 448: IV. Fandango
5 Anonimous / Les Voix Humaines - The Lancashire Pipes en mi majeur
6 Georg Friedrich Händel / London Baroque -  Sonata in G minor, Op.2 No.5 HWV 390 - II Allegro
7 Johann Abraham Peter Schulz / Ingeborg Emge - Largo in C Minor for Glass Harmonica

8 Joseph Nicolas Pancrace Royer / Csonka Fruzsina - La Marche Des Scythes
9 Arcangelo Corelli / Accademia Bizantina - Sonata No.12 in re minore "Follia" - II. Variazioni 2-7 (Allegro)
10 Henry Purcell / Chelys Consort of Viols - Fantasias & in Nomines No. 16 in G Minor, in Nomine a 7, Z. 747
11 Evaristo Felice Dall'Abaco / Insieme Strumentale di Roma - Sonata in sol minore op. I nº 5 per violino e continuo. Allegro
12 Dario Castello / Lorenzo Ghielmi, Enrico Onofri, Margret Köll - Sonata Prima A Sopran Solo
13 Joseph Bologne / Orchestre de Chambre Bernard Thomas - Concerto pour violon No. 1 en do majeur, Op. 5 : Andante moderato
14 Antonio Soler / Diego Ares - Preludio No. 3 in C Major

This mix is very much related to Pérolas Barrocas from 2016 (you finally got your wish, Liquid Store).

Dream Weapons present: FORECAST C60

If this was a trustworthy forecast, we’d all be doomed. 

-I think having had my ears assaulted by those overblown Dune/Blade Runner 2049 Hans Zimmer-scores has inspired me to compile yet another chilling «dystopia that awaits us, as seen from our near past-fantasy». A no budget, less pompous soundtrack with better themes and some nice songs -Moahaha

Also; Goodbye & Good Riddance to 2021 and a Happy New Year to all our friends and followers!

2 Weekend - Sleepy Theory
3 Borghesia - Cindy Sherman
4 Me Lost Me - Forest Fire
5 You - Future-Past

10 Λιάνα Θάνου / Liana Thanou - Δεν Ήξερα Το Μέλλον / Den Iksera to Mellon

-If you happen to enjoy my psuedo fortune-telling I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore-approach to compiling mixtapes, I've got plenty more darkly surreal hours of fun for you to explore on mainly: OFF THE RAILS, SECTOR UNIT, DANSE MORTELLE, WAYWARD, COLONIAL SPACE TOURS, THE TIME CAPSULE, FUTURA PRIMITIVA, ANTROPOCEN... but really most of our mixes tagged "Electronic or "Experimental".

...and BTW, most of our 20ft shows + the two we've done for Radio Alhara are up on Soundcloud and collected HERE - if anyone of you prefers that platform - or have an account there. I might as well add that player too:
