ambient bike ride
« on: July 06, 2011, 07:08:58 PM »
This evening's bike ride had a sort of ambient feel to it because of the names of some the roads & places I passed.

First was Cedar Creek Road which made me think of field recordings of water or Maps & Diagrams - Get Lost, which has a great aquatic feel to it.  Then I hit Country Aire Drive which has a wide open feel to it like some spacious drones from Paul Bradley's Chroma cd.

Further on, I road past a farm called Whispering Pines, great ambient vibe in that name.

Finally, I came upon a subdivision on Night Pasture Road which congers up images of laying out in the field, gazing up at the stars with Saul Stokes - Outfolding playing in the background.

Sounds enjoyable.  Fortunately you did not wonder down the Road of Fragmented Souls, whereby the way takes a turn for the worse on the not so scenic Ridge of Oblivion, later to give way to Charon's Tundra.... that would be a dark ambient bike ride.  ;D

Yep Dave,

Those sound like Cederburg road names to me  ;D

...says the guy who's studio is on Willow Creek... 8)

Funny we both live close to Milwaukee and we have never grabbed a coffee, whats up with that?

ancient shadows

surrounded by
lost love silence

at submarine depth
the restless moments
of the lapping memories
are now undetectable

and they resided in mequon

long ago

so close to cedarburg       h

Paul,

You're exactly right, those are Cedarburg roads, just a bit west of town.  The Ozaukee county interurban trail runs right through here & is a great trail for biking.

You are or were in Cudahy at one time, correct?

We should do a coffee some time.

I'm in Franklin right now and moving to Oak Creek in a month, but I am in Milwaukee often. We used to go to the big flea market often up by you.

You know, it's funny, I would have thought that ambient music wouldn't work on my mountain bike rides, but it's almost all I listen to while riding now.

Wow! You can listen to music while you ride? I'm impressed, as I can't imagine being able to do that.

I'm able to chew gum at the same time as riding and listening to music too.  ;)
