Rank #5: Ambient Soundbath Podcast #64 – Juta Takahashi

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb64.mp3

I discovered the music of Juta Takahashi on the SomaFM DroneZone internet radio station; I hear a lot of great music there and I try to bring some of it to the Soundbath from time to time. Juta Takahashi is one such case.

Juta Takahashi was born in Miyagi, Japan in 1959, and produces music, primarily, through the use of computers and analog synthesizers. Artists such as Brian Eno, Harold Budd, Vangelis and Pete Namlook, etc. have had a major impact on his work and you can hear that influence throughout his catalog; much of his recorded work is comprised of improvised music.

Juta’s music is timbrally rich with deep sonics that, at times, I felt like I could just crawl into and rest for a thousand years. The sonic fabric of his music is dense and rich with a consonance that is both engaging and revitalizing; these were the qualities that caught my attention on several occasions on DroneZone, where I knew I had to give a closer listen. Juta’s work, like artists such as Stephen Phillips, Altus and Off Land are what the Soundbath is all about, so it’s my pleasure to present the work of Juta Takahashi to Soundbath listeners. Enjoy.

This episode was inspired by a recent, day-long, lecture that I attended with Dr. Gabor Maté; the title is a reference to his book, In the Realm of the Hungry Ghosts, which he also talks about here.

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #50 – Transmission Date: 11/15/2016

Ambient Soundbath #50 is special in more ways than one…

This episode marks five years of creating the Ambient Soundbath Podcast.

This episode also features a side of my work that’s been omnipresent, but never highlighted, as such, my ambient guitar work, which perfectly coincides with the release of my newest recording, Ambient Guitar, which is available for sale on Amazon iTunes and in lossless audio on Bandcamp.

This episode of the Ambient Soundbath podcast was done completely live and on the spot, and is comprised of three deep listening ambient guitar compositions, including an extended rendition of English Folk Song from Ambient Guitar…

This is also one of the longest episodes clocking in at around 1 hour and 40 minutes…

50 episodes and well over 60 hours of completely original ambient music is a tall order and tough to maintain, so this may be it, a good place to leave things… the end of an era… Or maybe it’s the beginning of something new…

Anyway, thank you for listening and enjoy.

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #66 is an original work that I (Matt Borghi) created expressly for the podcast. This composition, that I’ve titled: Morning dew gathered on weeping cherry limbs, came about as many of my tracks do. I was meditating and contemplating sound. I began to ‘play’ with some synthesizer sounds that went with my state of mind and also enhanced my sound meditation session. I began recording the sonic ideas that I was playing with in a very calm, meditative state of mind and then let the piece unfold. This piece is the outcome of that meditation.

Enjoy.

Rank #14: Ambient Soundbath Podcast #55 – Altus

Podcast cover
Read more

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb55.mp3

This episode of the Ambient Soundbath is comprised exclusively of the work of Altus (aka Mike Carss). Altus has put out many recordings (nearly 30+ recordings in fifteens years) of lush, well-crafted and superiorly composed music. All of which are free to listen to and download on his website. I once tweeted that ‘Altus is the music that I imagine when I’m creating music for the Ambient Soundbath’… It’s as true now, as ever… This program, likely the first of many Altus programs, is pulled from two recordings, Innerspace (2016) and Komorebi (2015). While I thought the first program would be dedicated to his Sleep series (1, 2), a set of personal favorites and desert island picks, I went with these two beauties instead.

I’m going to go out on a limb here and might even get some angry email for this statement, but, for me, Altus is the only artist I’ve found that comes closes to the Quiet Music-era of Steve Roach both in timbral lushness and sonic beauty… a musical high-water mark that many artists have endeavored towards (myself included), but only Steve Roach had achieved…until now.

I think you’ll agree, that the Altus tracks from Innerspace and Komorebi are perfect for an Ambient Soundbath and just the right sounds to set the perfect sonic mood for thinking and being… Enjoy.

Rank #20: Ambient Soundbath #59 – Moby – Long Ambients

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb59.mp3

I first stumbled upon Moby’s Long Ambients after they were released in early summer of 2016. As a long-time fan of Moby’s ambient work I was excited by this free release, which is still available here: http://moby.com/la1/ – The complete 4-hour collection instantly became a meditational and relaxation go-to recording for me, as it’s calming and easy to immerse yourself in, and as I sometimes like to say, from a listening standpoint, there are no sharp edges, just smooth contours.

Moby wrote this about the release, and I think that it parallels the mission of the Ambient Soundbath Podcast nicely:

“it’s really quiet: no drums, no vocals, just very slow calm pretty chords and sounds and things for sleeping and yoga and etc.”

1.) 00:00 – 27:00 – LA 9 – Moby – Long Ambients 1: Calm. Sleep.
2.) 27:00 – 38:00 – LA 4 – Moby – Long Ambients 1: Calm. Sleep.
3.) 38:00 – 60:00 – LA 3 – Moby – Long Ambients 1: Calm. Sleep.
4.) 60:00 – 75:00 – LA 7 – Moby – Long Ambients 1: Calm. Sleep.

Enjoy.

– Matt
