This is a "tribute" compilation CD-ROM I produced in late 2019 in the style of Muzak's "Expressions" library, specifically of the pre-Mood era, for your dining-listening pleasure. (See the description page for the 01 August 2009 aircheck for my personal reflection on Expressions.) This is approximately 12 hours of segue'd music, imitating the presentation style of Muzak's satellite and linear CD-BGM programming, that took close to a month and a half to produce manually using the multi-track function in Audacity.
That I built it approximately 10 years from the date of the monster satellite aircheck I uploaded previously was entirely coincidental; I certainly had not planned it that way. I did incorporate a small number of sequences that I particularly liked from it and a few other airchecks I haven't uploaded yet (as of this writing), so if you've heard it/them some fragments of this programme may invoke deja vu, but the rest is all my own original sequence.
The programme has been downsampled to 22050 Hz for public release. Unfortunately I can't share the 44100 Hz MP2 or master PCM data with you, but this is the complete (unedited) programme as I compiled it last year; forgive me for the sloppy crossfade jobs between a few of the selections and especially forgive me for having had to downsample it. Enjoy...
Notes DOWNLOADING Use the "MP3" option to get the files. Since they are already encoded as MP3 there are no lossy derivatives available for this post. Full setlist is available under the "TEXT" option. The original MP2-format ISO9660 CD-ROM album is available using the "ISO" option. The files are named using the "MP3" suffix to make them playable on DVD-video players that don't recognise ".mp2", though a very small number of machines won't support it in any form (particularly I-River/Rio CD players, and most late 1990s/2000s Sony portables supporting ATRAC and Apex DVD Video players). MP2 (MPEG 1 audio layer II) format was intended for compatibility with certain professional audio players that expect it.
To stream this programme as a sequence in an external media player (e.g. VLC), open the "VBR M3U" file in your player's playlist editor and select "play". To stream individual files, load the file you want from the "VBR MP3" option into your player directly.
LICENCE Do whatever you want with it; I don't care. Republish/remix freely but do not sell or monetise. If you enjoyed it and learned something from it, great. If we meet someday and you think it's worth it, you can buy me dinner in return.
