More Ambient Music

Ambient music can be music of little or no rhythm, with background sounds and effects as foreground music, perhaps bringing to mind works by Brian Eno. There’s also some danger of falling into the "new age" category. Well, on this edition of New Sounds, listen to some ambient music that takes the modern drone and renders it stately, as in the latest release by K. Leimer, “Statistical Truth,” as well as some looks back to works by Fripp & Eno. Also, works by Michael Jon Fink from the Cold Blue family and Bach as interpreted by Anton Batagov.
