Since its beginnings in the 1970′s, Ambient music has enjoyed an increasingly relevant and important space in popular music. Stemming from the experimental work of early innovators such as Brian Eno, Klaus Schulze, Basil Kirchin, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Lamonte Young, and Radiophonic Workshop pioneers Daphne Oram and Delia Derbyshire, ambient music has continued to expand alongside the development of electronic instruments and technologies.
Ambient Zone is your Sunday night chill out session, incorporating all of the various sonic tangents from the cosmos of ambience. From lengthy organic drone-pieces to electronically focused music that draws from minimal House and Techno with a spattering of beats to keep things interesting, Ambient Zone highlight the use of space, texture and a minimalist approach to melody and rhythm.
