echoes of a silent ocean

I have waited so very long to do a tribute to the one entity that I admire more than anything in the world: the ocean. I was born in a beach town, and have never stopped being in awe at the power, beauty, and intensity of the ocean. It can be soothing and tranquil entity just as easily as it can be a cold, dark killer. For this reason, the seas have a rightful warrant to our respect. With this mix, I was fortunate in a few ways to have found some truly great music and have so many textures that I believe encompass the scope of the ocean. The music here reflects everything that the ocean represents to me from still, deep colors to its turbulent and dark contrasts. First and foremost, though, I need to give a huge thanks to ADRIEN SIFRE ('Fotografik33' on Flickr) for graciously allowing me to use his photo 'Wharf Variation 6' for this episode. The photo was very inspirational in helping me to create the perfect vibe to accompany it. You can find more of his amazing photos HERE (thanks, Adrien!).

Whoever (and wherever) you are out there, I hope that your journey with Spaceman's Transmissions is something that really put great things into perspective for you. I will continue to seek and create inspirational and uplifting vibes that speak to you. I hope to not only give you new music to check out, but also sit comfortably within your soul to light dark paths when you need it. Those are my updated terms and conditions (ha!). Thanks for tuning in when you can. Peace.
