Learn Ambient Music Producing with the Recording Connection
This unique form of Electronic Music puts its emphasis on atmospherics over rhythm. Hailing from the UK in the early 70s, ambient music was made possible by the synthesizer. Early pioneers such as John Cage and Robert Fripp were influenced by classical composers such as Erik Satie as well as by jazz. Perhaps the best-known pioneer of this influential type of Electronic Music is the legendary Brian Eno.
Ambient music is a powerful form of electronic music in that the listener can either participate directly or use it as background music. Some popular sub-genres of ambient music are: shoegaze, dark ambient, ambient dub, drone music, space music, psybient and black ambience.
