Set Fire to Flames- And The Birds
Any more woodwindy/stringy droney ambient stuff people can recommend?
perfect for this back end of winter kind of feel.
I'm trying to think of another one that I like to go to at this time. Had it on sportify before I deleated it all after not using it much. Its by a lass who plays cello and I swore it was a on Type as well but I can't seem to place her name now.
Murcof is good'un tho too.
is Verse of Birds from last year. That was more modern classical than ambient but truly stunning
might do one day, that album is pretty spesh to me.
FOund the other one I was thinking of.
ambient/modern classical, same thing to me.
but most records straddle the two these days
gets above ambient in energy so, they're kinda one and the same to me. Maybe there is a really rawkus strine I've not heard tho.
but call it what you like really, is just a name
wouldn't mind hearing some of that rawkus modern classical at some point then haha.
What's the difference between ambient and drone?
can also be called ambient...but if it gets more intricate (Boards of Canada etc) then I guess it can only be ambient.
anything from Gregorian chant to Indian ragas to minimalism like Tony Conrad to Stars of the Lid to Sunn o))) can count as drone.
ambient music in the strict sense is more about unobtrusive 'background' music which isn't necessarily that musical...like, there might only be the faintest trace of melody. see Eliane Radigue, Eno's ambient stuff...
but then there's an inevitable crossover.
La Monte Young is the crux of this, given that his minimal take on drone pretty much laid the foundations for Eno, Tangerine Dream and the like.
Love his use of strings. I'm a sucker for any vaguely cinematic atmospheric string work.
off in shower then i'm going to update the playlist. i take it most people include chilled electro stuff when they talk about ambiance. its all good.

Pretty perfect if you're looking for ambient/soundtrack composition-y type music (a la Clint Mansell, Bersarin Quartett, Clem Leek etc.) I've been listening to it non-stop to help with my work, I can't recommend it enough.
the BR stuff is great. 'Music from the film that never got made' and 'Real life is overrated' are great little records.
never heard of him
howabout something very ambient indeed, one of my faves - Pausal..
amazing for a sunday-morning-after-a-heavy-one, as well as a gentle goodbye weekend soundtrack to drift off to..
this is wonderful track - Mising Weeks
if you can dig out the album Pathless that has Fading Youth 1 & 2 which is probably my favourite of HIs. gorgeous stuff
"Tulsa, OK multi-instrumentalist and Scissortail Records guy Dylan Golden Aycock delivers this stunning batch of drone-folk meditations fashioned with a truly refreshing mix of synths, loops, air organ, and expressive pedal steel. These sunken timber hymns harken back to the roots of American experimentalism but stand in their own new space, lonesome bedroom ballads tinged with universal nostalgia."
we've spiralled from pure ambience, so i'm adding this. gorgeous <3
Fantastic stuff. Does anyone have any more ambient/droney recommendations in this and the Richard Skelton kinda vein? I'm after more stringy/woodwindy stuff.
