Tonight’s mix is:
- Deep Cello Music
- The Cry of the Armenian Duduk
- Isle of Forgotten Sins (*note* this gets played at 1/2 speed)
I’ve decided after learning about the duduk that pretty much all videos can be enhanced by having a duduk. It’s this haunting, wailing instrument that you’ll recognize from movie soundtracks. It can make anything sound heartbreaking. I experimented with it over episodes of Popeye and it had a really heavy effect, especially if you slow the Popeye WAAAY down to half speed or even quarter speed. The cello is a beautiful accompaniment to the duduk. Movies that didn’t start off sad or even particularly melancholy go dark, fast.
