Three ambient pieces from the top shelf. A stack of drones and a… Cello?
Martina Bertoni – Elevate
We’ve heard from Martina before, a few months ago. Here she is again, with her excellent blend of cello and electronica. And just like earlier we also really love this track, Elevate. A track that takes us out on a travel, melodic but abstract, with the right balance of harmonies and non-melodic details in the soundscape, without ever bloating the image.
Lehnberg – Arrival
I’m immediately taking you down to darker grounds with this next track, “Arrival” by the Swedish artist Lehnberg.
A ground covered in drones and radio interference. Futuristic. Cyberpunk images of a world gone haywire, survival of the fittest, explorations of a torn land.
Non-Functional Harmony – B (Torri in Sabina Ambient Remix)
I’m rounding off with this piece from the hands of another act we’ve visited before: Non-Functional Harmony.
One might probably say this is the most experimental of the three, and with a delicate whiff of futuristic, barren landscape. Or deep, deep space.
Either way, this is good stuff to drift off to. Safe travels.
All three are added to our smörgåsbord of ambient delights, “Ambient Universe”. A list you probably already follow if ambient is your thing. If not – well, here it is:
