Performances like this makes me wonder why I should even try this genre of music…
I never could get my eBow to work right. Or maybe I was never patient enough actually practice it. But this video is fun and makes me want to try again.
I really love XM radio. Sometimes I get tired of the way they play the same old shit all of the time, but sometimes they deviate from the norm and bring you something totally new and refreshing.
I had never heard of Michael Stearns before. I had assumed he was a new artist, since he does fit in nicely with many of the modern day ambient composers. But it turns out this song is over 30 years old! Whodathunkit?
I really need to buy this whole CD. And probably the rest of his discography as well. I feel the way about this song the way I do Eno’s “Discreet Music” and Burzum’s “Rundtgåing av den transcendentale egenhetens støtte”
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.
