DreamScenes 2016-11

I guess it’s because of the dark season… Somewhat different from the usual DreamScenes selection, this edition contains five (!) vocal tracks, and some acoustic (guitar-)oriented tracks.
So it seems this edition is somewhat more ‘pop-oriented’.
Still, there’s this genuine ‘ambient’ feel… a ‘late night’ session, if you wish.

So: light up the candles, sit back and enjoy November’s DreamScenes selection.

DreamScenes 2016-09/10

I have enjoyed a holiday in September, so I had to skip last month’s DreamScenes edition.
To compensate for the immeasurable grief this must have caused, ánd to celebrate the start of autumn, this edition is a twice as long as usual.

So I hope you’ll enjoy these two hours of new (and relatively new) music to make you float away into your daydream…

Secret 41 (Mix)

Because of the drones, atmospheric field recordings and insect sounds, this mix will be labeled as an ‘ambient’ mix by most listeners.
And of course it is…. but at the same time it isn’t.
It simply isn’t ‘unobtrusive’ enough to be ‘ambient’.

An hour-long journey of scene changes, meandering between *Kitsch* and *Kult* – a bit more ‘psychedelic’ than ‘ambient’, in fact.

Frans Friederich – Ambient 1998 – 2013

Frans Friederich is a dutch trumpet-player, musician, composer and music teacher living in Zierikzee, Holland.

Friederich’s Bandcamp page displays an extensive overview of his work, all compiled by their different styles and downloadable for free (!).
All these compilations present a large array of adventurous experiments, but there are two specific release that justify recommendation here on Ambientblog: “Ambient 2002 – 2013” and “Ambient 2 – 1998 – 2013” , respectively (- you probably guessed thát).
