In this May edition of DreamScenes, you can expect a bit of contemporary classical, a bit of piano, a bit of jazz , some drones and (of course) some ambient soundscapes too, to bring you a small hour of quiet (when needed).
High Plains (Mark Bridges and Scott ‘Loscil’ Morgan) present their album Cinderland on the Kranky label;
CEEYS (Daniel & Sebastian Selke) start their Concrete Fields trilogy exploring their Berlin birthground.
On ‘Fiction – Non-Fiction’, Olivier Alary presents a multi-faceted overview of his recent soundtrack compositions – with a special unreleased track called ‘Discipline’ as additional bonus listening on Ambientblog.
Next to that, Selffish (yes: two ff’s) presents his new album on the Serein label, which is every bit as beautiful as you’ve come to expect from this label’s output.
A short but refreshing break from the usual ambient soundscapes: Kid Koala and Emiliana Torrini’s collaboration album called ‘Music to Draw To’, and a spectacular reissue of accordeon wizard Mario Batkovic’s ‘Solo’ album.
Music that crosses borders and reaches out to folk tradition: guitar sounds of Seabuckthorn and Jeff Pearce, and Art Patience’s soothing harmonica.
Drifting into experimental territories that will raise your adrenaline level: with Joshua Sabin, Christian Bouchard and Blessed Initiative (Yair Elazar Glotman).
Michel Banabila and Maarten Vos perform the soundtrack for Conny Janssen’s dance production “Home”….
Banabila also released a (vinyl) compilation called “Sound Years” (and gives away three download codes to commenters on this post!)
More piano textures from Bruno Sanfilippo * Dense, atmospheric melancholy from Daniel W.J. MacKenzie (aka Ekca Liena) * and José Silva’s music to browse your photo collection by.
Quantum Ambient: music that is ambient while at the same time it isn’t…
