This week in the music area of Art+Culture, we continued our exploration of ‘Quiet Music.’ (Read [Part 1] and [Part 2]) Here are some highlights:


 


1. I posted an interesting article from Wired Magazine about lowercase sound, an extreme form of minimalist ambient music. [read]


 


2. GraceAnne brought to our attention Disquiet.com, a great site about ambient and electronic music. Her post also includes a cute video by the musician Pogo, based on Disney’s Alice in Wonderland. [read]


 


3. I spent some time adding some seminal artists to the Ambient category:

Hyperboa uses some dialogue from Twin Peaks, which inspired me to make a little page with composer and David Lynch collaborator Angelo Badalamenti. [view profile]


Of course, I had to post opening titles to Twin Peaks, a favorite of mine. (see below)


 


As always, feel free to leave comments or post some of your own ‘Quiet Music.’
