Episode 14 – Mark Of Life
An ambient mix dedicated to Mark Wark by JASON

My first two mixes have been fast paced and beat-driven. This one is quite different. Mark Of Life is a mix of ambient music, which I like to listen to when I want to relax and unwind. All the tracks I have included fall under the ambient genre, and many are also considered « space music, » denoting their surreal, moving, and profound-sounding atmosphere.

There are three stages of this mix: birth, discovery, and departure. These represent a broad yet universal path that our lives take. The tracks contained within the stages each carry further meaning, which I will leave up to the listener to interpret. Feel free to comment what thoughts or feelings the mix brought to you!

Each stage of the mix is accompanied by its own background art, created by Stanislav Marchevsky. Check out his portfolio here!

Mark Of Life is dedicated to the late Mark Ward, who created truly unique, beautiful, and passionate music. Whenever I would write a comment on his Soundcloud page, he would always take the time to respond. Learn more about Mark and listen to his music here.
