If you make music with conventional acoustic instruments, you know in advance what each of them will sound like; your sonic choices are in the combination of instruments and the details.
On the other hand, if you're an electronic musician, you have to choose or invent every sound you work with, a process we now call "sound design." These days there are pre-designed electronic sounds built into instruments and software, but the variety is much greater, and the choices...are endless.
So the electronic sounds you select or create are as much a part of your artistic identity as the music you make with them. And when it comes to ambient electronic music, you have to add the virtual dimensions of space and atmosphere. Taken together, these elements give electronic music its unique psychological character.
On this transmission of Hearts of Space, ambient electronics for the fall/winter transition, on a program called ELECTRON TRAVELER 2. Music is by ENIGMA, SOLOMON GREY, NERVOUS_TESTPILOT, BIOSPHERE, MARTIN KENNEDY, CHRONOTOPE PROJECT, RUDY ADRIAN, TOM EATON, and DEEPSPACE.
