Ambient music can be anywhere from relaxing to inspiring to mind boggling (in a fun way). While listening to a good ambient song, we can sit back, close our eyes and have the most interesting images fly through our heads. Below is just a small sampling of some of the great artists out there who are teasing our minds with their ambient goodness.
Don’t close your eyes for this one. Hammock stimulates your ears and eyes with their haunting tale “Cold Front” from their album “Departure Songs.”
Mikhail Medvedev doesn’t just have an amazing cat, he has created a beautiful song called “Memories.”
You can learn a lot from Andy – really you can. His site reverbnerds.com has video tips to help you if you are just starting to tinker in ambient sounds. Andy has so many good videos to feature, but we had to go with “Famine and the Death of a Mother” from his new album “This Is For Our Sins,” which captures a sense of isolation and loss.
Jeffrey Niemeir teases 15 seconds of ambient beauty.
This is a perfect one to close your eyes to and let the song take you away. “Gravitáció” by …A Többi Néma Csend is a perfect journey through your mind. Maybe a gallop on the beach or a run through the poppies, On Mountains provides the soundtrack for a gorgeous day.
