My sincere condolences to the family. Jim's positive spirit will be truly missed.

Like many others...Jim gave me some kind words of encouragement when I was getting started...which really meant a lot to me.
People like Jim are what make this ambient movement and he will always be remembered as one of the finest proponents for the power of ambient music.

Excerpt from the Album Notes:

Originally recorded Saturday, September 26th, 2009 as a live streaming
collaborative performance on between Blue Hell
(The Netherlands) and Shane Morris (USA). The performance was nearly five
consecutive hours of live improvisational electronic music. There was
nothing pre-conceived, arranged, or composed for this performance. In
fact, neither performer has ever physically met or spoken to the other
performer. This recording is entirely the product of internet relay chat,
streaming audio, and a friendship that exists beyond a material realm.
This recording is the highlights from that session boiled down and edited
to two hours of engaging experimental ambient electronics.

Cheers Mike,  

I still think that the way people are coming across ambient music can be termed 'underground'.
People who don't 'follow the scene' can still pick up on ambient through Lastfm and MySpace for
example and people who like it already can listen to the Streaming radio stations and come across
new artists / material. Streaming radio shows like 'Drone Zone' and Stillstream are great for
artists (exposure) and listener (the aforementioned reasons) alike.

Then shows like Ultima Thule archive their shows as podcasts and then there's 'dedicated' ambient podcasts themselves. For an artist
its great to get this kind of exposure.


I love stillstream and dronezone and agree with you is great for artist exposure.

Just wanted to add that we at also feature live ambient radio programs (as well as other styles). We are not genre specific...but we do have an abundance of ambient artists and music on the site.

We also archive all of the radio programs for free download or listening later as well.

"debris" actually took several years until it was finished the way I had envisaged it. Musically, it won´t be as calm as "ceasing to exist", the last ['ramp] album in its original line-up. "debris" will be based both on textural ambient soundscaping, ambient field recordings of steelplants, railway trajects, and factories at night, and grinding sequencer rhythms. 

Neat! Your choice of field recordings sounds very interesting! :D

More hair from established artists!        I'm also thinking ambient haircasts are a missing element.
LOL thats funny Scott M2! HairCasting was big in the 80s it seems!

From another perspective, ambient music is in its 3rd / 4th decade (depending on where you start) which is amazing in itself!
Almost every genre undergoes peaks and crashes throughout the course of the genre's lifetime...some peak and die in less than 10 years total. For ambient to stay around and relevant for so long is an accomplishment in itself. It is also reasonable that eventually ambient also will OR has reached a valley in terms of interest. Thus like many other genres, participants that are left are those diehard to the ideas of the genre which will or will not keep the genre alive.
This is where IMO a lot of great new cutting edge ideas, sounds, concepts, and uniqueness emerges before the next big surge in listeners occur. I feel that ambient and its arsenal of genres are producing and evolving wonderful new stuff right now and is a very exciting time musically.

Also, in response to Judd's statement about live ambient playing with other styles...I think this is a great idea. Everyone likes variety...and mixing genres always brings in new listeners that might not normally try out some music they will experience at one of these events... be it ambient, or drum n bass, or modular weirdness.

Just want to say that Electro-Music 2009 Festival is a festival along those lines. There is an ambient undertone to the festival usually, but many styles of electronic music are represented. Check it out... in one month in New Jersey this year.

In case you missed the concert but would like to hear it......

Also...If you missed this concert, there will be more in the future. We will be celebrating each of the solstice/equinoxes with streaming concerts throughout the year and to come! All you need to participate is membership with electro, broadband internet, free streaming software, and your music.  :D

Thank you very much Mark!  :)

Great topic!  :)
I agree with you Mark about the live concert "situation". I think the lack of venues is a stunting factor with ambient and experimental music. But it is important to play live, feel the music more intensely, and build a network and community for which people can share and experience something together. Jez and I were just having a conversation about playing in places that were unique and stimulating apart from the normal concert venues and bars, such as outdoor areas, caves, galleries, or house concerts.

The streaming phenomenon has been revolutionary in many ways as a credible venue for experimental and ambient music, especially for the larger or more fragile gear that cannot make it to the gigs. As well, Creative Commons has been a great vehicle to support independent artists and music that may have never been able to otherwise publish their music...of which I participate in both heheh.

Audiences big or small, shrinking or growing aside, It is wonderful to me to hear the ambient genre continue to grow, evolve, and diversify musically. So many other genres of music become quite formulaic in time. I believe eventually that audiences will increase for the genres of ambient over time...maybe even over an absurd amount of time, especially as the genre continues to create unique creative music. But I believe as the tools and technology continue to expand as they are ... so too will the music created from it.

In any case, the recession in the US...and I suspect in other countries as well, has had an overall lifestyle changing effect on many people. People have been in "survival" mode for a few years now here in the US.
Luxuries and entertainment such as music and the arts are often the first things to go during tough times like these (even though they may actually have more relevance and importance than ever). I've seen it happening in more popular genres than in that regard...I have a positive outlook on things  :D!
