This group concerns works in styles like: contemporary, classical, minimalism, folk, post-rock, ambient, drone, soundscape, psybient, idm etc. Any works that might give an impression of transience, infinity and mystical experience are much welcome. Most of all, melodic (composition of constant or modulated tones, synthesized/instrumental) with ambience (spacious synthesized sound or classical/traditional/experimental ambient instruments 'e.g. strings', as well as soundscape recordings, so as reverbed sounds or sounds of spaces).

AMBIENT - according to wicipedia; "Ambient music is a musical genre that focuses largely on the timbral characteristics of sounds, often organized or performed to evoke an "atmospheric", "visual" or "unobtrusive" quality."- wicipedia
BE WELCOME to this Sharing, Collaborating, Participating, Creating Forum that I think is of great Cultural, Creative and Social importance for all who Cares about Life, Communication and Music.
ACTIVE FORUM FOR ambient, soundscapes, stories and healing atmospheres are aiming towards some publishing, using selected tracks from the group, putting together a classic master collection, representing the ambient sound of our times, wrapped with universal symbolic visuals & few words of attitude in several different ways, formats and volumes, to adapt to all the different platforms and forums we experience in cyberspace at the present time. All plans in this matter is slowly taking shape, but all interests and inspiration from private, official, labels & publishers are more than welcome to our open forum. All plans and concepts will be presented for the contributors in proper time and members will be noted of all actions.
WE ARE LOOKING forward to travel the journey with you, see where and what this collaboration /group will bring, but one thing is for sure, it is already History, so keep on posting your great stuff. And we will promise to keep an open eye on what is the core of change in ambient music at the present, and what we can read, learn and share from our collective focus, passion, reflections and observations.
IT GIVES US the possibility to experience how music, and especially ambient, sound-storys, new grounds aso. is reflecting and expressing the state of mind of the people and culture of our habitat. Every region has it's own musical identity and language, (ever changing of course), some are very active, upfront and visual, others grounded in deep ritual tradition, others more hidden. The nordic ambient music expression is modern, very active, well known and appreciated widely around the world, for it's emotional seriousity, elemental character and fascinating, recognizable almost visual atmosphere of nature.
MUSIC HAS NO BORDERS, nor has the nature, neither do we. So lets get into the ambient, sound-scaping, storytelling, exploring spirit and get wise on our own habitat, our people and ourself, trough the fine tools of art, sound & music. Sharing this experience & wisdom with our brothers & sisters, is what art is all about. The artist must seek and explore all sides of life & nature, then translate and express it trough the tools of art, so that others who don't have the time, means or the gift to explore it, is given access to this source of knowledge, trough the artists universal language.
GRACE TO ALL of you, for the passion and will to harvest experience and knowledge trough music and sounds with soul mates and share it with all man. Thats the spirit of the music, the umbrella of all arts, the only, yet, universal language we have. All our common ground, the environment, our global habitat, this earth, gaia, this world, our solar system, the galaxy, the universe will be your witness, backup and alliance.
