As a composer of ambient music, I have been asked several times what have been my influences. Which, depending on what day you ask me my answers may change. I went through my collection to try and find what I would not only consider great ambient music, but also a great diversity in the genre. You'll notice there is no Robert Rich
or Harold Budd
in this selection and as much as I do love their work, I wanted to include a variety of artistic styles. Not all of these will be found on your digital cable soundscapes channel.
- Ambient 4: On Land
-So warm. He captures so much atmosphere and takes you somewhere that is so much better than where you are currently. This album is one of the most relaxing collections of music I have ever heard. The ideal place to listen to this is when you are falling asleep on a beach and the sun is setting in the west.
Favorite track: Dunwich Beach, Autumn, 1960
