There was a sense of escape in those spaces, and I still try to visit every few years when my schedule permits. Now, I’ll take my headphones and provide my own soundtrack to the experience; but as a boy, the dull echoes of families exploring the descending walkway that took you through the Atlantic Coral Reef and Shark Alley displays created a peculiar tension which I found intoxicating.
This mix was recorded using a stack of vinyl, a pair of Technics turntables, an Allen & Heath mixer, a Strymon El Capiston dTape Echo and a Moogerfooger MF-105M.
I hope you enjoy it.
