24 Hours: The Starck Mix

Last month the folks over at Soundwalk released a 24 hour long mix that was created for Philippe Starck. The mix is one giant loop which never ends, giving you a constant stream of music that’s entirely mixed together from beginning to… oh, right.

They’ve presented the mix in a couple different ways. First, you can download an app for your iPhone or iPod touch that allows you to listen to it through your headphones. I tried this the other night, and I actually fell asleep to all the weird ambient sounds and I’m pretty sure there French people speaking. The other way is through your browser, which you can find here. They also let you control the music in a small way. You can shake the iPhone, the real one or the browser version, and it’ll change times, and thus, the mood of the music.

It’s a really great idea and the music is really wonderful. I heard a couple of Erick Messler songs on there which surprised me, cuz’ I didn’t think anyone knew who he was. I’m sad I didn’t come up with this idea first for the mixcasts or mixtapes!
