A state of bliss is something I find most often in solitude. Moments of peace and tranquillity can be hard to come by in a world seemingly defined by hectic situations and noise. Constant connectivity can feel inescapable.
Any state of bliss is obviously special, but when it arrives in a drug-infused state, it’s a moment to treasure. These seconds should be complemented by ambience. This week’s playlist begins with pivotal ambient musicians like Oval and Wolfgang Voigt (GAS), and then harkens back to the seminal Eno, Visconti and Bowie work ‘Moss Garden.’ It also highlights some of the 21st century’s most innovative ambient producers, like Liz Harris (Grouper) and Julianna Barwick.
