DOWNLOAD THIS NOW: CFCF’s “Belongings, Possessions” Mix

CFCF

Via Dazed Digital:

This mix is meant as sort of a moodboard of some influences that went into ‘Music for Objects’. The mix opens with a piece by Elmer Bernstein which was composed for a film by Charles & Ray Eames, whose concepts of design and ‘object integrity’ greatly inspired the EP. Along with the music from the Wenders/Yohji doc ‘Notebook on Cities and Clothes’ by Laurent Petitgand, I was inspired by the albums ‘Music for Commercials’ by Japanese saxophonist and composer Yasuaki Shimizu and ‘WORKS 1’ – CM by Ryuichi Sakamoto. Both records consist of short vignettes; strange, often pretty music whose original use was to sell products. Objections of consumerism and commercialism aside, there is something unusual and thrilling about the idea of trying to compose to an object for sale without sacrificing integrity. Similarly you will find works by Yukihiro Takahashi and Michael Nyman which were each composed for Yohji Yamamoto shows, as well as some excursions by Jon Hassell, Japan and the Art of Noise for good measure. Please enjoy with any of the following: a cup of coffee, a clean shirt, a yo-yo, a piece of tea cake! – CFCF
