Missed Mixtapes #6
NTS Radio’s Dom Roarty provides XWHY with a series of Mixtapes that don’t deserve to be missed
My favourite radio show, without a doubt, is Radio 4’s “Desert Island Discs“. This show, which last year celebrated its 70th anniversary, is the perfect example of the power of attaching a story to music. I find music resonates with me differently if I’m reminded of something that has happened to me, or something I have read or have seen in a film. It adds visuals to the aural.
I chose Tokyo-to-Kissa #10 to share with you because I love the reflective mood of the selection. In true balearic blogger style, there is unfortunately no tracklist. My favourite from the mix (found after much detective work) is a piece by Seigen Ono called Julia (which was commissioned for a Comme Des Garçons fashion show in 1994). You can listen to the track in isolation here: Julia Soundcloud.
