My thoughts and prayers are with the people affected by the vicious 2019-nCoV Novel Coronavirus. I can't imagine what it feels like to be isolated and quarantined, along with your fears of the unknown. This mix is for you. I hope it eases your affliction.

Every season has its special beauty and autumn is no exception. Watching the trees turn from a uniform green to all varieties of gold, yellow and red is a spectacular experience. One can almost be blinded by the fiery brilliance. How can it be that all this beauty is sign of death and decay? With all this beauty there is a certain sadness in knowing that the changing colors foreshadow the arrival of a long cold winter.

May the music of the heavens,
Dance around you in the air;
May each step that you are taking,
Be paved with great success;
And behind each door you open,
There be love and happiness.
May angels keep guard over you,
As you walk along lifes way;
And may your life be truly blessed,
As you start each brand new day.

After some time in the works, I'm happy to share this latest installment in the Calm Pill series: a first of a kind double album that I created exclusively as a guest mix on AmbientMusicGuide.com.
It’s inspired by The Endless, a 2018 supernatural indie film that made an impression on me. The mix uses several tracks from the score and sprinkles key passages from the dialog throughout. My intention was to recreate the surreal feeling I had watching the film through a music. Fun fact: the mix...
The spirit of spring rises,
into a blissful gate to heaven.
Where dreams revive, and flourish,
into a luscious landscape,
set like a haven.
When the sunset shields,
against the vibrant contours of nature,
in a garden of enticing and cultivated blossoms,
leaving a spectacular scenery,
with glamour, and a feeling of rapture.

Do you trust night to turn to day?
I think I trusted it once.
Maybe a long time ago.
I know my brain believes,
letting go gets you gobbled up,
so you never see the day.
Still, I feel my heart telling me,
to trust and just let go,
to know the world has hope,
to know that love is shown.
Stop running from it all,
stop chasing all that’s wrong.
let the night keep rolling on,
and watch it turn to day.
― from The Night Will Turn To Day by Kephra Rubin
We are travelers on a cosmic journey, stardust, swirling and dancing in the eddies and whirlpools of Infinity. Life is Eternal. But the expressions of life are ephemeral, momentary, transient.
We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment, but it is transient. It is a little parenthesis in eternity. If we share with caring, lightheartedness, and love, we will create abundance and joy for each other. And then this moment will...
"There is a sense of timelessness in the twilight.
Of time standing still and extending into the infinite.
Of sadness and hope.
Of yearning and satisfaction.
Of unrest and peace.
Where time has no meaning and
the mundane melts away into the symphony of colours in the sky..
..and your eyes follow the fading light and your soul knows its purpose once again."
Happy new year my dear listeners!

A sunny afternoon at the park lake.
Waves ripple ashore.
Birds sing in the trees.
Children laugh and shout at some playground in the distance.
And here you stand looking at your reflection
trembling on the water, you ask: Who am I?
And your picture looks back at you and answers:
You're no longer who you were, you're almost who you'll be.
Ego te absolvo.
You bend down.
You pick up a stone.
And as you hold it in your hand
it's getting heavier and heavier.
And just before it's...
There is comfort in reclusion. With the sensual beauty of the piano, this mix will caress you into a state of peacefulness.

It was beautiful
It was green and clean.
The smell of fresh air
The sound of the river flowing
I love everything happening there.
I pinched myself to see if it was real.
That was when I realized I was dreaming.
Couldn't it be real?

I shall have some peace here, for peace comes dropping slow,
Dropping from the veils of the morning to where the cricket sings;
I will arise and go now, for always night and day
I hear lake water lapping with low sounds by the shore;
I hear it in the deep heart’s core.

This mix is an ode to my good friend Tonepoet. His original guitar-infused ambient productions and mixes are second to none and are always a source of inspiration to me. I've collaborated with him on two previous mixes which are to this day some of my best work and a source of pride in my mixing career. He has a new album in the works and I've featured some of his finest works in this mix, which you can also explore more of through his Bandcamp page.
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Listening to this mix, think of someone you know who can use such an act of kindness, and remember:

When peace sets over, no feeling compares. A mellow, loving feeling pervades this mix, helping you turn down the volume knob on life.
“Every hour of your life that ticks by, there are numerous points and moments when you can choose to pause - and be aware of your mental and physical state. At any given point, you can freeze the flow that is your life, and be fully conscious for a moment.”
― Kevin Michel, Moving Through Parallel Worlds To Achieve Your Dreams
I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea’s face, and a grey dawn breaking,
I must down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the...

The true joy of a moonlit night is something we no longer understand. Perhaps we can learn to appreciate its peaceful beauty and with this kind of relaxing piano music.
“How beautiful the moonlight’s shining on this bank!
Let’s sit here and let the music fill our ears.
Stillness and nighttime are perfect for beautiful music.
Sit down, Jessica. Look at the stars,
See how the floor of heaven is inlaid with small disks of bright gold.
Stars and planets move in such perfect harmony

When everything is moving and shifting, the only way to counteract chaos is stillness.
"There is a presence, a silence, a stillness which is here by itself. There is no doer of it, no creator of this stillness. It is simply here in you, with you. It is the fragrance of your own self. There is nothing to do about this, it is naturally present. This fragrance of peace, this spaciousness, it is the fragrance of your own being." ― Mooji
