    Do you really need much drone after discovering Eliane Radigue would be my question i guess.

    Lovely Eliane.

    Drone/Ambient is blessed with a surfeit of female originators. More so than any other electronic genre. Radigue, Oliveros, Oram, Spiegel, Amacher... tons of prominent female artists too, new age full of them also.

    Over the last few years, obscure Japanese ambient classics like Hiroshi Yoshimura’s Green and Midori Takada’s Through The Looking Glass have surged in popularity. Lewis Gordon investigates the phenomenon, talking to the record collectors and vendors in the US, UK and Japan that helped inform a new wave of interest.

    i know this is a cringeworthy buddha loungey thing to do but yesterday (while high, natch) I had an ambient music accompanied shower and it was an absolute good, according to the categorical imperative

    go forth, get high, have a shower listening to biosphere

    The record store guy talked me into getting Ravedeath, 1972 by Tim Hecker because we were discussing ambient and I hadn't heard it. It's quite a nice experience playing ambient on vinyl. It's definitely easier to get drawn in and feel immersed in the textures. The album is also very good but apparently a classic in the genre.

    i really like the hecker stuff. ive picked this idea out of nowhere that hes maybe slightly less credible than some of the other artists but maybe im just imagining that.

    it's very generally praised, but I guess there could be an inherent trait about ambient that if it gets too popular or receives too mainstream acclaim, then it's compromized on some level.

    Generally held in high regard. I have my reservations myself. Too much digital noise at times.

    I fell asleep when I saw him live.

    Matt adds to the japambient hype.

    Saddened by the overall lack of love for Yoshio Ojima.
