Grand Imperial MysticThis week I recorded a short mixtape to participate in a local music project called 8|8 wherein 8 people create mixes of 8 songs each.

This one is titled Grand Imperial Mystic and the subtitle is Supreme conviction, ambiguity, and the smell of gunpowder.

I don’t want to say too much about the meaning behind the mix. It will be more fun for you to listen to the mix and draw your own conclusions.
