Quote from: Andrew McIntosh on August 16, 2021, 02:51:59 AMQuote from: FreakAnimalFinland on August 15, 2021, 10:53:46 AMQualities of ambient you are looking for? It varies. It depends on mood. Sometimes I'm alright with Harold Budd style musical minimalism, other times I prefer flat out eleh/Radigue style drone, other times Lustmord style dark ambient, other times Kosmiche, sometimes some ten hour long YT soundscape. Invariably it's something that attempts to turns off the more conscious, active elements of the mind.

Quotethe Caretaker with his sprawling analysis of dementia - not typical "ambient" music, he samples old '78 speed records with the crackle and surface noise, moulding them into strange and harrowing experiences. Everywhere at the end of time begins with fairly straight forward samples and familiarity, before descending over a period of around 8 hours into a bewildering chasm. Each stage of the album depicts the crumbling of the mind as it succumbs to the disease. The artist himself has been diagnosed with early onset dementia which gives the album additional emotional drive.
