As dusk settles in and many people are winding down for the evening, a few of the chosen ones are slowly pulling open their blinds to a darkening synthetically lit world. Vampire Sunrise is the soundtrack to the elusive beings whom we never see yet ever so often run across while we move throughout the neon lit nightscape. As dusk first sets and the clock turns to six the computer starts the vampiric morning off with Colourform’s light ambient tune Magic Carpet (with a special Ishq remix soundscape), The slow movement to rise is then beckoned on with the slightly more upbeat Spirit Happening that was handcrafted by Evan Bartholomew. While stiffened from the daylit rest our friend stretches out his sleep stiffened body as Overflow provides a perfect segwey to the immortals first sip of the nocturnes espresso, with Scintilla. As Is by (val)Liam then sets what would be a mortals version of a pancake breakfast with its lush yet quietly energetic flow. The plasma screen displays a CGI sunrise for our waking friend, as Distant System’s Lost Sequence ushers in a sense of foreboding fate, the prospect of an endless nocturnal existence, with the tracks soulful yearns of the absence of light. Ishvara’s Nomad Arabian rmx however, brings forth memories that no other mortals could ever have experienced and changes the mood to a focus of the gift that was bestowed ages ago. Open Systems Rise and Shine reinforces that the night is for the immortal with its upbeat tone. As the ambience of the morning dusk starts to fade, the artificially lit city skyline is observed in silence through the window. Finally the time to prowl amongst the living has come and the minimal techno beat Nub which KiloWatts has created puts an end to the morning and starts the day or as the mortals would say the night…from here who knows where the day will end. The plasma screen is turned off as the sun has risen and our friend exits his door as the last beat of the Vampire Sunrise fade out. Compiled by Pete Pan.
