Ambient Classical

Monday, October 29, 2007

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.

I tried to listen to this program but was shifted to the preceding (or following) program, Music from the Baltic. Can you tell me how to listen to Ambient Classical?

Thank you for your help,
Amanda Stinchecum

I tried to listen to this program from the archives, but instead was somehow shifted to the following (or preceding?) New Sounds Program, Music from the Baltic.
