The Best Ambient Music on Bandcamp: September 2020

Source: Bandcamp Daily.

The electronic music pioneer Laurie Spiegel celebrated her 75th birthday this past September, and her sage and scientific criticisms of contemporary music ring truer with each passing year. Spiegel, one of the first artists to create music with digital synthesizers, described the boundless possibilities of art with electronic instruments. Computerized music gave her “the complete freedom to define any world you wanted and work within it.” The artists featured in this month’s column similarly found inspiration from the endless capabilities and combinations of digital instrumentation, whether Jonathan Fitoussi’s combined orchestras of Buchla, Moog, and Korg synthesizers or numün’s spellbinding loops of acoustic instrumentation.
