    Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 12 - Henrik Lindstrand

    Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 12 - Henrik Lindstrand

    This week we are joined by Swedish pianist and composer Henrik Lindstrand who will be releasing his new album Nordhem on October 23rd on One Little Independent Records. His delicate, layered, and intentionally sparse compositions provide the perfect soundtrack for reflection. You can feel the emotions punch through with every stroke of the key, bringing you into Lindstrand's world yet allowing you to make it your own. His mix is remarkably reminiscent of his own work, a soundtrack for spaces and time, gently reminding us of our humanity, allowing us to feel more connected to the moment. You cannot help but be moved by these works, curated perfectly and programmed to enhance your journey, whether in an armchair or a coastal stroll. Headphones on, it's time to get ready for a sonic journey that will stay with you long after it is through.

    Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 11 - The Ghost of Brian Eno (Reflections)

    Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 11 - The Ghost of Brian Eno (Reflections)

    This week we are doing something a little different, our guest is not a person per se but the algorithm of one. The application/album Reflections by Brian Eno is an experiment in machine learning applied to regenerative music, it's an algorithm that recycles loops and textures to create an ongoing ambient composition. It's like literally having the ghost of Eno just living in your iPad ready to create at any time, and what's even cooler is that it moves with the seasons and generates a video image to correspond with the sounds. Download it stat if you like what you hear. Headphones on, let's reflect with the ghost of Brian Eno.

    Ambient Meditations Podcast Vol 10 - Bing & Ruth (David Moore)


    This week we are joined by Bing & Ruth's David Moore to talk about his new album, inspirations from the California desert, the Farfisa organ, and more. Their new album Species came out on 4AD July 17 (2020) and will mark the fourth album from his shape-shifting modern minimalist/ambient ensemble. Moore's Ambient Meditations mix he has done for us runs almost as a sort of parallel to Species, a cinematic score to man's constant, if not eternal, existential dilemma. Inspired by classic soundtracks, artistic contemplation, and our place in the universe. The mix is expanding, beautiful, and timely in this time of pandemic peril, political strife, and global warming. This one will make you think, feel, and hopefully recalibrate. Enjoy.


    Tracklist:


    Gustavo Santaolalla - Tema Amores Perros + Atacama


    Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Tracing Back The Radiance


    Thomas Newman - Angela Undress


    Chihei Hatakeyama - Alone by the Sea


    Late Bloomer - Countances


    Ben Seretan - Shotgun a Cigarette in an Empty Strip Mall Parking Lot

    Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 9 - Hugar

    Magnetic Magazine Presents: Ambient Meditations Vol 9 - Hugar

    For Volume 9 we are joined by Icelandic duo Hugar consisting of multi-instrumentalists, Bergur Þórisson and Pétur Jónsson. Their music might be described as minimalistic, with only the essential emotive layers to fill in the "white space." You might say there is a certain Icelandic quality to their sound, wide open and dreamy with artifacts of such greats as Ólafur Arnalds and Jóhann Jóhannson, with whom they have also collaborated. Their new album, The Vasulka Effect: Music For The Motion Picture, is out on Sony Music Masterworks later this year on October 2nd. This project is a unique concept, both an inspiring and unique album that is an extension of the original soundtrack they did for the documentary on visual artists Vasulka. For the mix, we are taken on an extensive journey of both familiar and unfamiliar, with a variety of feelings and textures - it is also the most extended mix we have ever had on the show. So put on the headphones and get to know the sounds of Hugar.

    Ambient Meditations Vol. 7 - Ferry Corsten as FERR


    You probably know Ferry Corsten more for his massive anthemic dance music than for his atmospheric tunes as FERR. We got the chance to catch up with Corsten in Rotterdam via Zoom and talk a bit about the album, the current state of affairs and briefly discuss his mix for this week's episode. This week's mix includes some music from Corsten's new album and chillout veterans such as Chris Coco, Aquasonic, and Jon Hopkins. Sit back, put on the headphones, and enter the world of Ferry Corsten's FERR.
