MIX TAPES FOR PAINTINGS, VOL. 4!

TO THE SUN 👀 solid enjoyment happening with this personal project. My aim is to make a set of 10. I've talked in previous posts about why I'm making these, and here wanted to share a conversation I had with my kid who got a hold of a Walkman and has been listening to all my old mix tapes. There are a lot of them, many from friends, many made by me for traveling and stuff. The music is so tied to memories that it has brought up a lot and has given her insight to what was going on at the time. We talked about how they are like documents, snapshots, but with all this emotional immediacy. The tapes have this affect of being like journals without the awkwardness or being invasive, so much is shared without the burden of unwanted specifics. 🔌
