Any opinions on TANGE ?
« on: October 25, 2011, 05:36:49 AM »
Hi, I recently fell in love with the album "A Tub Full of Tange" released on Earth Mantra netlabel. It's a compilation of live performances by Tange on Stillstream radio. 11 hours of nice ambient music. I listen to it when I prepare my history lessons, it's so great if I need solace after a day full of stress.
It's become my favourite ambient album. But in fact, is this ambient or drone ? Or both ? ;)

I think Tange's stuff crosses boundaries. More recently he's released some tracks in the Complex Silence series, and a set of generative pieces (that are so nice and melodic it's amazing to me they are generative). I think he used a special program to convert field recordings to lovely ambient tracks.

I have lots of Tange at my netlabel, Treetrunk. I am a big fan, as well:

Hey thanks Thomas, but I'm an eager Treetrunk anyway, so I have those releases.
The mentioned Tange stuff could also fit into your Constant series.

A Tange Constant would be very welcome.
