PvC – Entropic

Entropic - large

Welcome to another Headphone Commute podcast. You’re in for a treat! Peter van Cooten has been contributing countless reviews and mixes and there’s no sign of him slowing down! And that’s a great thing, because we certainly love the soundscapes that PvC introduces our ears to, with his intricate selection of layers, textures and most importantly, story-telling. The latter is what makes up a great selector, elevating him on par with the artist themselves, where the collage of sounds becomes more than just a mix, but a brand new piece of music. Enjoy!

retracing information that was lost from the message …
searching for the uniformity in what seems to be randomly disordered …

– For a closed thermodynamic system, a quantitative measure of the amount of thermal energy not available to do work.
– A measure of the disorder or randomness in a closed system.
– A measure of the loss of information in a transmitted message.
– The tendency for all matter and energy in the universe to evolve toward a state of inert uniformity.
