https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb75.mp3 Archaeoastronomy was on my mind when I made this piece. I was thinking about the earth, spirituality and the connection to the sky in pre-historic cultures. I don’t spend a lot of time looking at the sky (though I’d like to do more), but drones, mine or others, for me, have always provided…Read more Ambient Soundbath Podcast #75 – Orbit Series Drone

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb73.mp3 Good salutations, Soundbath listeners… I’m really excited for this program as it’s the first to feature a guest host. I actually got this idea from Dave Michuda, host of Low Light Mixes, after he asked me to do a mix for him (you can hear it here).

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb72.mp3 I’m finally getting around to mining all the creative inspiration I gained from a recent trip around Lake Superior, both through western Ontario on the north side and on the southern side through Michigan’s UP (upper peninsula) by way of Duluth.

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb70.mp3 Ambient Soundbath #70 is another original work in the vein of Parallax Drone; a piece inspired by Philip Glass’ Early Works where I’ve experimented with some compositional devices called parallel and contrary motion that he worked with on that recording… You can hear it in the criss-crossing of the sounds as they move…Read more Ambient Soundbath Podcast #70 – Helical Drone

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb69.mp3 Upper Astral is an interesting artist that I found when scouring YouTube for vintage new age cassettes releases. I found a variety of Upper Astral recordings, but when I looked at how I could put them together for a single Ambient Soundbath program I couldn’t get many of them to work well…Read more Ambient Soundbath Podcast #69 – Upper Astral

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb66.mp3 Ambient Soundbath Podcast #66 is an original work that I (Matt Borghi) created expressly for the podcast. This composition, that I’ve titled: Morning dew gathered on weeping cherry limbs, came about as many of my tracks do. I was meditating and contemplating sound. I began to ‘play’ with some synthesizer sounds that went with…Read more Ambient Soundbath Podcast #66

https://ia601303.us.archive.org/26/items/AmbientSoundbathPodcast/asb64.mp3 I discovered the music of Juta Takahashi on the SomaFM DroneZone internet radio station; I hear a lot of great music there and I try to bring some of it to the Soundbath from time to time. Juta Takahashi is one such case. Juta Takahashi was born in Miyagi, Japan in 1959, and produces…Read more Ambient Soundbath Podcast #64 – Juta Takahashi

It’s a single track, long-form work that I’ve found works great for rest, relaxation, sleep and meditation. It probably works pretty good for yoga, too, but I haven’t tried it out in that capacity…Read more Ambient Soundbath Podcast #62 – Infinite Resonance

I have listened to, meditated with and analyzed no music more (save, maybe, Claude Debussy) than I have the work of Harold Budd.

As a long-time fan of Moby’s ambient work I was excited by this free release, which is still available here: http://moby.com/la1/ – The complete 4-hour collection instantly became a meditational and relaxation go-to recording for me, as…Read more Ambient Soundbath #59 – Moby – Long Ambients

This episode of the Ambient Soundbath features an original work called Parallax Drone. It’s a work that I created after spending time listening back to previous episodes of the Soundbath, something that I’ve never really done before.
