Torn Hawk


mlat 71 – Torn Hawk

A Torn Hawk mix, limitless and unbound (via Made Like a Tree).

“The mix starts with a piece by Wim Mertens. I haven’t found anything he’s done to be as credible as his soundtrack for Peter Greenaway’s Belly of an Architect, from which this track is drawn; usually he comes off as a hack minimalist, with emotional leanings that veer towards mom soft-classical. But I like that line, of getting close to weepy new age or whatever you want to call it. It’s all about context. A lot of the other tracks on this mix go in that direction (the Xymox track “Clementina” is a good example) but putting them up against tracks that have more street cred/heft shows how fluid, or meaningless, these distinctions can be.”
