Experimental and Ambient vinyl records are a melting pot of styles, influences, and musical combinations. One of the joys of these genres is that there are no rules. Therefore, artists are free to push the limits, creating music that is truly out of this world.
Ambient music is largely instrumental and it is just the ticket for adding subtle interest and flavour to your home environment. Ambient vinyl records engage the listener without demanding their attention.
When it comes to Experimental and Ambient vinyl records, you might have some questions. After all, these particular genres are hard to define and understand. Here’s some background about these alluring musical genres.
What Is Ambient Music?
Ambient vinyl records all began in the late 1960s and 1970s, as musicians had access to new, electronic instruments. That’s why synthesizers play such a central role in this particular style of music!
Artists found that they could use the instrument to mirror the acoustic sounds of traditional instruments like strings, piano, and flute. Therefore, they could seamlessly incorporate the subtle and soothing sounds of these instruments into soundscapes created using nature-based sounds.
The early 20th-century French composer Eric Satie describes Ambient music as the sort of music that is to be played in the background. Something that you can play during dinner. The subtle, warmth of the music drowns out the disruptive noise of the outside world and dulls the clinking of cutlery, whilst imposing itself on listeners.
What Is the Experimental Music Genre?
Experimental music is an umbrella term that we use to describe any sort of music that pushes the boundaries. This particular gene became popular in the mid 20th century, as artists became more daring and there was less emphasis placed on following “the rules”.
Like Ambient music, Experimental music doesn’t adhere to strict music structure or timing. This is what makes it so interesting! Not to be confused with Avant-Garde music, experimental music is often thought to be unconventional, unpredictable, and sometimes just pretty weird.
