This Week From Hearts of Space: PGM 910 CLOUD OF PROMISE 2


About this program from Hearts of Space Stephen Hill tells us:

Ambient music can evoke subtle feelings, take us on journeys, and create soundscapes in our imagination — sometimes all three at once.

Take this introduction: start with the sound of distant gulls and soft bells, add floating voices, electronic ornaments, resonant harmonics, and a slow pulse. As we follow the sound, we find ourselves in another world.

That’s the thing: today’s electronic music delivers more information than before. In addition to the classic trio of melody, harmony and rhythm, we now have the dimension of space or ambience. And in our diverse, electronically connected world, we can merge sounds, styles and instruments from other cultures into our music — a gesture that says “respect”…without words.

This week on Hearts of Space, more high information electronica for the season, on a program called CLOUD OF PROMISE 2. Music is by ATOMIC SKUNK, MOTIONFIELD, NEMESIS, TRISTAN FELDBAUER & FRIENDS, KUUTANA, BRUNO SANFILIPPO & MATHIAS GRASSOW.

From the program


The weekly program is FREE on Sundays

Hearts of Space is now running on my DROID II cell phone with Android 2.2. Tested in the car driving around the wilds of Central New Jersey there was not one drop out, no buffering, everything was excellent. As with FM radio and the internet, I measure the quality of the transmission not by the music, but rather by the quality of the silences between the pieces. Stone dead pure silence.
