Better Listening Through Circuitry 001

September 10, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Better Listening Through Circuitry is an occasional series dedicated to electronic music and the influence it has over all genres.  I'm unsure of the direction this will take at this time, I guess it just depends on whether or not people find value in it.  I know that it will start as a series of playlists, a channel for discovering new listening experiences, or just rekindling a love for something familiar.

Episode 001 kicks things off with a more organic sound.  The fringe elements of electronic music tend to find themselves intertwined with more traditional musical styles.  Ambient and drone artists often work with, or as, neo-classical, instrumental, and minimalist composers as well.  So, we begin, not with a bang, but with a whisper.  Gently played keys and soft strings give way to airy synth pads and analog drones.  It's good for the headphones, a clear night, or just some quiet time alone.

The artists here are all hardworking musicians, but these in particular don't exactly sit at the top of the sales charts.  I've created playlists for a listening experience, but streaming brings little to no revenue to the musicians.  If you hear something you like, please consider buying something direct from the artist.
