Listen To This: Composer Kyle Dixon Offers A Meditative Mix for Troubled Times

Austin-based film/TV composer Kyle Dixon (a member of the expansive synth outfit S U R V I V E and 1/2 of the duo behind the culture-shifting Stranger Things score) has graciously assembled a grounding collection of minimalist compositions for our Viewfinders blog. Dixon leans into his ambient influences, sourcing sounds that span decades and continents for this mix of “minimal or calm music for staying home, mostly but not exclusively centered around one instrument.” Give it a deep listen and let your mind roam far from the boundaries of your quarantine zone.
