Washed Out - The Fantastic Symphony Mix

Earlier last month, Ernest Greene of Washed Out assembled an almost 21-minute long musical narrative called The Fantastic Symphony Mix for Platform, saying that it described “…different episodes of one continuous dream. My dreams have a life-like quality to them, but are always skewed in really subtle ways. That is the way I think of most of these songs.” I don’t think most people appreciate the incredible difficulty of tracklisting, particularly when it’s for a collection of music from a variety of musicians, but I’m pretty darn impressed by how effective these songs are together. The mix is very organic and as Greene says “skewed in really subtle ways,” but it also leads very nicely into his own music as Washed Out. In that respect, it’s a great portrait of the music and musicians that have informed his recordings or emerged out of a similar milieu.

Here are the songs that compose the mix followed by the single mammoth mp3 that contains them:

1. Arch M – “Bedrm Band at Caf NVA (edit)”
2. The Samps – “Magnetic Thys”
3. Samiyam – “Wrap Up”
4. Toro Y Moi – “Brubek”
5. Koushik – “Homage”
6. Osborne – “Afrika (Bullion Remix)”
7. Iasos – “Inter-Dimentional Music”
8. Jack Nitzsche – “Untitled (edit)”
9. The Khalsa String Band – “Song of Bliss”
