Spaced, as a verb, is defined in Merriam-Webster’s dictionary as “be or become distracted, euphoric, or disoriented, especially from taking drugs; cease to be aware of one's surroundings”. As a noun, it is defined as “a continuous area or expanse that is free, available, or unoccupied”. The music in this playlist is intended to compliment the feeling of being spaced out or “floating through space”.
Whether you’re driving through your neighbourhood roads, lit by dim streetlights or laying on an inner tube in your backyard pool, staring at the stars, the songs in this playlist are meant to amplify your comfortable melancholy.
I’ve always found entertainment in creating playlists to fit to a certain mood. If you were to get a hold of my iPod, you would discover that I have a playlist for almost any situation possible. Of all the scenarios that I’ve put together a score for, my favourite to have music for is simply when I am alone with my thoughts. Something that flows beautifully in the background of my mind while I contemplate whatever questions I have for life at the moment.
Even if I have no questions and I’m just appreciating everything around me, this music has always had a spot in my queue.
About the curator - Hayden Schutz
Hayden Schutz is student from Saskatchewan, Canada. Currently studying at the University of Regina. When he’s not browsing reddit for new music, he’s usually attempting to study, training for track & field or indulging in whatever tv show he’s into that week. As of lately he’s been experimenting with video and photography but nothing that he would consider “professional quality”. Hayden’s been playing guitar since the beginning of high school and singing since he was old enough to understand the words on the radio in mom’s car.
