I am aware of Juha-Matti Rautiainen's bass guitar dronescaping virtuosity only since last summer, certainly one of the biggest revelations of 2018!!! Watch, listen and enjoy!!!

And also make sure to explore his two albums available through his Bandcamp site, "The Endless Now Music for Stagnation" CDr (December, 2016) and "Above Me Weeps The Sky" CD (November, 2018). Highly recommended!!!

Richard ;)

Pete, thats dark & beautiful...that was the original four track processed or did you added to it?

I think this sort of timbre can't be had so easily with keyboards....or I should say I can't summon it up with them.

Do you think that guitar as a source of ambient exploration differs from that of keyboard as source because I do.  A drone is a drone is a drone...maybe, as I tune my ears to all things guitar Im beginning to hear what is outside my keyboards sonic palette....not sure though.

Sorry for the late reply and thanks for the comments, fellers.

I've played the guitar for a long time and I know enough about theory to come up with interesting chords and the like. I don't play the keyboards, so I can't 'express myself' in that way. I find the chordal / harmonic thing fascinating and it's something that isn't very much explored in ambient music. An artist who does work in that way is Jeff Pearce.
