081 | max pearl: chill beats to relax and write your master's thesis
"I made this mixtape to soundtrack the research and writing process for my Master's thesis, which I completed last semester. The idea was to find songs that made me feel focused, but not edgy, with a tendency towards gentle dissonance and rhythms that are so subtle they almost disappear. Usually I listen to really emotional or intense bangers at all hours of the day, and while I wouldn't call this an 'ambient' mix, it's as close as I'm likely to get, with a balance of quiet jazz, abstract electronics, and a bit of New Age synth stuff. I hope that, for those of you heading 'back to school' this semester, it will get you in the headspace to read and write a lot without falling into the vortex of panic, stress, and bewilderment. "
