Yesterday, December 8th, was the 33rd anniversary of John Lennon's assassination, and while other fans listened to his music or laid flowers at the site of the shooting, Nicolas Jaar decided to do what he does best - make an hour-long experimental mix, titled "Our World." Kicking things off with sportscaster Howard Cosell's now-famous announcement of Lennon's death, Jaar's mix runs the gamut from hyper-minimalist spaced out piano chords and drones to disorienting deluges of sound and information. It's masterfully composed, and functions as a fitting personal tribute. Check it out.
