Queen Anita represents everything wrong with the world today. Putting feelings above facts, and worst yet, expecting us to give a fuck when she’s offended. I will expand on my comments later (mainly the current generation and their willingness to censor anything “offensive”), but for now, a “fuck you, Anita” will do.
Merry Christmas, everybody!
As a present to whoever may be watching and listening, I released a new drone track today, called Raildrone. As always, it’s free to download and free to distribute (so as long as you keep the ID tags intact).
I’ve come to realise that I can trust listeners — they don’t need to be constantly woken up. They’re quite happy to drift for a while and come back in when the music comes back in. In general, the listener wants much less than the creator. When you’re creating something, it’s very easy to get into a nervous state and think ‘Oh God, here’s a whole bar where nothing happens,’ and try to get more stuff in. But as a listener you’re quite happy with these open spaces.
Brian Eno I need to be more comfortable with those silences in my own work.
We need Milton Friedman more than ever today.
Everybody who loves ambient should check out Celer. They have a massive discography, but this is a good place as any to start. And it’s one of their earlier works.
Not really, but Mashiro from Engaged to the Unidentified makes a pretty solid argument
The struggle is real. But not real enough to actual get contact lenses.
Denki-gai no Honya-san is one of my favorite anime of the season. I will post a roundup of this season when it’s over.
Bandcamp is one of my favorite web sites around. You can find music in any genre you enjoy, and a goodly amount is free or nearly free.
Robert Farrugia has some of the best ambient music I’ve heard in a while. Most of his music can be downloaded for free, though I’d recommend everybody pay something for it.
And there is more where that came from.
