Episode #2576

Ambient Classical (Encore Edition)

« previous episode | next episode »

Wednesday, August 03, 2011

For this New Sounds, listen to ambient classical California composers like Phillip Schroeder, Harold Budd, Daniel Lentz, and more. Composer/music professor Phillip Schroeder uses multiple pianos and digital delays to generate dense masses of shimmering trills and cascades that create a complex calm and openness.

Harold Budd’s music, a sparse and tonal wash of keyboard treatments, was inspired at an early age by the humming tone caused by wind blown across telephone wires in the Mojave Desert town of Victorville, California. Also, there’s lush, pitch-drifting electronic soundscapes from California-based composer Daniel Lentz as well.
