From Satie’s “furniture music” (musique d’ameublement) in the 1910s to Eno’s Music For¬†Airports in the 1970s there is really but a small step. Instrumentation has evolved over the years, as have recording techniques, but the idea¬†behind the concept remains the same: a music that can be played to create a minimalistic background atmosphere rather¬†than being the focus of attention. Call it what you want: ambient music, incidental music,¬†background music, we here at Pedigree Cuts prefer to call it “Undercurrents”.
Following in the footsteps¬†of our original excursion into this genre, Undercurrents 2 continues in a similar vein. We have planted a¬†variety of sonic seeds covering a wide range of emotions – we think they shall blossom. Anyone for some Undercurrents?
