Quiet Space — #203 — Music For Listening

Music For Listening is one of my favourite ambient releases of 2022. Michael Scott Dawson over four months during the pandemic wrote the album, but fleshed it out his guitar lines with  tape loops and manipulations, accompanied by field recordings and spare piano elements. It’s our focus on this edition plus work from Maps and Diagrams, Lydian Dunbar, FernLodge and more.

Quiet Space — #197 — Still Life

Our focus is on Igor Yalivec, with his gorgeous new record “Still Life”. Igor has released several works as part of Gamardah Fungus, but this solo work is his most peaceful music to date. The album was inspired by the beauty of old villages in the Carpathian forests of Ukraine, with their unhurried pace of life, calming atmosphere and wild nature. Another stunning release from the always reliable Polar Seas Recording label.
