isolatedmix 09 – Helios

An afternoon in the sun, a burnt face and one of my most memorable experiences from Big Chill 09. Since listening to Helios‘ compositions on a scorching afternoon last year, it’s been my mission to get Keith Keniff on board for an isolatedmix. A multi-instrumentalist and master of cinematic ambient and soundtrack composition, Keith’s releases have spanned electronic ambient albums including ‘Unomia’, ‘Eingya’ and ‘Caesura’ under his Helios name, as well as writing piano music under the name of ‘Goldmund’.

For isolatedmix 09, Keith provides us with an insight into the influences behind some of his renowned piano compositions with 45 minutes of perfected soundtracks from, Vangelis, Howard Shore, Ennio Morricone and Michael Nyman.

  5. I´ve have just known this website through Markus Guentner website, and after spending a weekend in Cologne, visiting Kompakt shop and buyin 2 (more) pop ambient records.
    Actually I am amazed that there is still some people interested in quiet and ambient music. I will loved it before (since 2002 and i will keep it loving this music forever).
    Thanks Helios for this superb mix (my skin is still rising; in german they say “ganse haut”) and thanks to the master mind behind this web astrangelyisolatedplaced.com. Thanks indeed!
    Regards from north Catalonia, near Salvador Dali´s place.

  7. I’m so overwhelmed by the beginning! This is one of my all-time favorites of Vangelis. Another one is the music that is running in BladeRunner when Roy grabs some eggs from the cooking water.
