TRACK NOTES by
K Á R Y Y N



1-OMD - Souvenir
My good friend Julian Wass introduced me to this track. I picked it because it's just so beautiful and happy. (0-3:33)

2-John Carpenter - Night
This is one of my favorite of John's pieces. Classic Carpenter sound. John personally introduced me to so much good music as a kid, so he holds a special place in my musical heart. (3:31-7:09)

3-Hiroshi Yoshimura - FEEL
This is one of my fave records. I've recently been obsessed. I was listening to 9 postcards on repeat for a year before this one! I have a new curiosity for the DX7 synth because of it. (7:01-11:49)

4-Haruomi Hosono - Windy Land
I’m obsessed with this track! I like anything with a constant oscillation. (11:36-16:48)

5-Julian Wass - Aisle Five
From the motion picture soundtrack Blue Jay. Julian is a really talented film & TV composer (HBO Shows like Animals, and Room 101, etc). and a very good friend. He introduced me to so much good music, some of which I've included here. He just goes straight to your soul within just a few seconds on Aisle Five.
(16:41-17:50)

6-Aphex Twin - Lichen
I am A HUGE fan of Aphex's ambient work. I was introduced to Aphex and Autechre when I was 15. It changed everything for me. (17:09-21:01)

7-Caterina Barbieri - Pinnacles of you
Such an emotional piece, I love the repetition in her work, it's addictive to me. All I see are shapes on repeat when i listen. (20:58-26:48)

8-The Blue Nile - Downtown Lights
The lyrics, the melody! There's so much longing in his music. I feel like he is constantly saying "I LOVE YOU" in every song. Perfect synth pop song. (26:42-31:18)

9-Vangelis- The Blade Runner End Theme
Classic, maybe cliche, but sorry had to include here because the CS80 is one of my favorite synths and this piece makes you feel like everything is shifting and possible. (31:12-35:51)

10-Haruomi Hosono - Hum Ghar Sajan
I know I've included this artist twice but he has made so much great music! This song is from Cochin Moon, I've been a big fan since I discovered his music on Light In The Attic label. One of my favorite labels! (35:42-44:32)

11- Elias Rahbani - Dance of Maria
I had to include this piece. Rahbani is Lebanese. I grew up hearing this song. (44:31-47:16)

12- Isao Tomita - Arabesque No. 1
This is literally one of my most favorite synth pieces. (47:14-51:16)

13-Suzanne Ciani - 'PART 3 '
I couldn't have this mix without this electronic music pioneer, she is such an incredible sound designer. I've had to abridge the performance in order to include her work here. Mid-way through her piece I've added Eliane Radigue's piece Elimination of Desires.
(51:11-55:05)

14-Eliane Radigue - Elimination Of Desires
This piece is the perfect meld of my most favorite things, ARP and Buddhism. Tibetan voice is Lama Kunga Rinpoche. Eliane used the ARP modular system for 40 years without making it sound old. She moved on to other instruments eventually. But she's a genius. My favorite synth right now is the ARP. It's all over my next record. (53:11-56:24)

15-Brian Eno -An Ending
This is one of my favorite Eno tracks. It feels like transcendence. (55:35- 59:58)
