DJ SpaceCase shares inspiration for Ambient Transience this semester
Its my 7th show on Ambient Transience, and I’m just now writing my blog. I’m behind on things, I know, but life is busy, right?
I started off my first show with some music to truly meditate on; I explored the diversity of the Sitar from both Eastern and Western artists, like the Sitar god Ravi Shankar, his prodigy George Harrison, Rashid Khan, and even the Kinks.
Next, I looked at Klaus Schulze, the founder of the German progressive movement Krautrock for ambient inspiration.
With Space as my inspiration for my third show, I played artists like William Orbit, Deuter, Solar Quest, Laraaji, and even my all-time ambient hero: Brian Eno.
I went with a Psychedelic theme as inspiration for my fourth show with Caravan, Silver Apples, Le Orme and Black Moth Super Rainbow; I showcased both contemporary and progressive groups, for the Psychedelic genre has maintained a solid presence in independent music for at least fourty years.
As I formulate my playlists out of some fairly diverse genres, I’ve noticed a definite overlap; though popular music possesses a seemingly infinite array of genres and artists, many musicians with similar tastes collaborate, creating unique music for their listeners.
Last night on Ambient Transience, I played chill tunes from some of my favorite movie soundtracks.
Ground Control, this is DJ SpaceCase, over and out.
Ambient Transience airs every Thursday from 12-2 a.m.
