Betwixt and Between


Notes

Enter liminality: "An interval, however brief, of margin or limen, when the past is momentarily negated, suspended or abrogated, and the future has not yet begun, an instant of pure potentiality when everything, as it were, trembles in the balance." (Victor Turner)

This mix is purely instrumental (well, almost - no excessive singing, just a kind of parataxis of utterances), progressing from somewhat lively buzzing through a dreamy landscape of falling silence.

this is one of my favorite playlists on 8tracks, and probably my favorite study/chill out playlist. thanks so much! will definitely continue listening to this in the future :)

@zoklitsos Thank you :) Wow, it's cool that this list has gathered so many plays from great ppl. This playlist is actually from the time I wrote my thesis about "literary liminality", so the music has been selected to fit the mood for modern city-walking and archaic rites of passage at the same time. That Turner quote up there - that's the universal state of change explained. Or at least I thought so while writing my thesis listening to those modern geniuses.

This is great study music until midnight rolls around and you start feeling like you're in Limbo ...great playlist though, thanks very much for it!
