I’ve been thinking a lot about mixtapes and mixCDs (and m3u playlists).
But I can hardly remember the last time I made a physical tape or CD with a narrative arc, a message, an ebb and flow of tempo and emotion. But I miss that, so here’s a mix trade offer for Creative Perspectives readers:
I’ll send you a CD of music that always puts me in a creative mood, if you’ll send me a creative mix of your own. Leave a comment with your e-mail address before next Friday and I’ll be in touch to trade mailng addresses and such.
In the meantime, if you want to find out more about mixtapes or see what other people mix together, here are some resources:
