This is long but for my mixes that I will post here to make any sense, please read.

Since the age of 13, I have been making mix CDs. I recently decided to start sharing them with you, the APnet community. Because I have made over 50 in the last 8 years (very few of which share songs), I decided to roll them out to you slowly.

There are two sets of what I like to call canonical mixes. One has the artist 'Quiksilver' (came up with it when i was 13, I don't remember why I chose it) and the other has the artist 'The Stranger' (after the book). I changed artist names in college because my musical tastes had changed so much I figured I would change the artist too. I still make Quiksilver records but that name is reserved for 'harder' music now. I have the artists in this way because it keeps the mixes together in iTunes and other various programs. It is important that they remain in order (I work hardest on making the songs flow right) or they won't sound as good.

There are a handful on non-canonical mixes I have made for various occasions (eg my Valentines day mix or my Summer acoustic mix made for the General mix exchange) that I will also post.

Keep in mind these span years of learning about music, learning about what I like, and learning how to make them sound as good as possible together (including minor wave editing and so on). Constructive criticism is welcomed for the more recent ones but I'd rather you not bash a record I made when I was 16 and heartbroken or something.

Otherwise, the 'Album art' pictures will contain links to the mixes. I will also list some of the real artists so you can avoid getting ones full of bands you hate.

Enjoy.

Clayton! You are the perfect person to ask for this. Can you make a mix of classical music? I want something to listen to while I study that doesn't have lyrics so I don't get distracted haha

She will enjoy it. She has a surprisingly good taste in music. Manchester Orchestra, Kings of Leon, Muse, and Ray LaMontagne are her favorites. She also enjoys Iron & Wine. That's why I gave it to her. I was surprised at how well the whole thing meshed. Some songs seamlessly led into others, and it was less like just a bunch of songs and more a group of artists waiting for their turn to play in the same room. That's how I felt, anyway.
