Texture in music is not something you hear much about. Yet it's fundamental to the sound of music and the musical experience, a result of instrumental combinations, rhythms, timbres, harmonies, and how you put it all together. Today we have almost total control of musical texture in the studio.
The much-reviled new age genre is full of artists and composers who create amazingly sophisticated textures in their recordings. Like most things, it's worth taking the time to find the good ones — their refined sounds can take you emotional places worth going. On this transmission of Hearts of Space we'll try to do just that, on a textural-melodic journey called GOSSAMER.
