Full Moon Mix: Short Stories

Songs don’t have necessarily to be sung. They might also be told. This mix focuses on the spoken word: Short stories, allegories, fairytales and philosophical monologues are recited to a blend of dub, jazz, electronica and psych.

Besides some overlooked artists you’ll find acknowledged masters of the spoken word and even a few undercover celebrities: Albert Einstein debates how language and mentality are linked, Arthur Brown dissects time and Debbie Harry plays the tambura in the final tale. If you listen closely, you can even hear her sing in the choir.
