Here in the high tech era, it's understandable that Space and Ambient music are associated with electronic instruments and studios. But when you listen without preconceptions, it becomes clear that the contemplative sound experience at the heart of Space and Ambient music is actually centuries old.
Traditional acoustic instruments, played slowly, with quiet passion, in reverberant spaces...can create the musical depth and extended dimensions we associate with contemporary Ambient. It's a tradition that asks only that you listen, and rewards you with a whole world of sound.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space we travel deep on ancient acoustic strings, on a program called PANAGIA — one of the Greek names for the Virgin Mary. Music is by STEPHAN MICUS, KAYHAN KALHOR, MIZUYO KOMIYA, and HANS CHRISTIAN.
