For the November broadcast we have our first guest mix, coming from Those Who Walk Away, the alias of Winnipeg-based composer Matthew Patton.
Patton’s curatorial and compositional work have brought him into contact with a long list of prestigious names, many of which he has included in his mix.
Constellation Records released Patton’s “The Infected Mass” album last year. The record has a claustrophobic stillness, building a sprawl of sound from field recordings, strings, choir, “ghost strings” and “ghost choir”, and real sampled recordings from the cockpit of a plane going down.
The record really stuck with me as something that pushed into beautiful but also unsettling territories, and I’m very pleased to have Matthew take us away into some songs that he has been listening to lately.
