The pieces on "Mixed from Heaven" are loose remixes of Jaap Blonk's very first series of short sound poems: "Liederen uit de Hemel" ("Songs from Heaven", 1985-87). These were published as part of a book/CD with the same title in 1993, now long out of print.
The original titles, in the order of their 'disguised' appearance on this LP, were:
Angels (melody by Albert Ayler), Electroshock Boogie, Pierikjaure, De Minister I,
Schrorr Blorr Grammat, Là où ça sent la merde, Lili (mit der Schokolade zwischen d'Beine), De Minister II.
All titles composed by Jaap Blonk (Buma/Stemra)
Recorded in Arnhem, Netherlands, 2013 (except "Mixed Angels" and "Schrorr Blorr Machine", recorded in 2002)
Produced by Jaap Blonk

The ambient composer creates pieces reminiscent of short stories by Breece D’J Pancake, assembling familiar sounds in ways that render them haunted and suddenly unfamiliar. Bandcamp Album of the Day Nov 8, 2023
