ANTS Podcast #013: Proto-Ambient — Atmospheric Electronic Pieces, 1955-1976

SUBSCRIBE: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR  |  image by Rick Guidice
The term "ambient music" was coined by Brian Eno in the mid-1970s, and he is largely credited as the genre's founder. However, academics, studio engineers, and a few well-off counterculturalists were using electronics to aid in making music that could functionally be identified as "ambient" decades before the word was thrown around. This playlist highlights such efforts. I chose to use the term "proto-ambient" to describe this music, but really plain ol' "ambient" works just as well in most cases.

Also, just a quick aside to my listeners who may be yearning for more beat-driven dance music sets. I'm just having fun with something different at the moment. This podcast is meant to be eclectic, even though I tend to stay tethered to dance music. Rest assured—the beats will come back.

ANTS Podcast #012.5: Ambient Boards of Canada Rarities


SUBSCRIBE: iTUNES, RSS, SOUNDCLOUD, MIXCLOUD, TUMBLR

On this Mixcloud-exclusive edition of ANTS, I've dug up 40 minutes worth of beatless ambient Boards of Canada rarities ripped largely from cassette and vinyl. Hopefully this will quench your thirst until Tomorrow's Harvest drops next week. It is well known by enthusiasts that there's a plethora of early and unreleased BoC material floating around the P2P universe. I thought it would be fun to compile some of the beatless material into one listen. This took quite a bit of fact checking because there are many fakes and mislabeled releases out there. But I am confident that this playlist is free of errors.
