PvC – Mind Awake, Body Asleep

Peter van Cooten’s intricate storytelling with his favorite piece is the precise definition of a true curator. But it’s not just a collection of sequential tracks that makes a mix from PvC a transforming experience, it’s also his multi-layered approach to weaving in the dynamics and textures of individual compositions that truly create a brand new one, disabling your mind from peeling apart the individual pieces (see below the screenshot of the entire sequence). The mix becomes an event of itself – one that I am honored to share with you. Here are some words from Peter on the theme:

The moment I heard Rami Malek whisper “You lie in bed and repeat this mantra in your head: mind awake, body asleep” (Mr Robot, series 2) I knew this would be the inspiration for a new mix. A mix about being half-asleep, lucid dreaming impressions… ungraspable images… and about “letting go”. After all, Mr. Robot’s tagline was “Control is an Illusion”. Control proved to be an illusion indeed, with these different, unrelated, fragments coming together like pieces of a puzzle, creating a mix “like its own cinematic score.” So let go, indulge yourself in this mix, and leave control to wherever the sound takes you.
