deltalimen saidAtmospheric I like better.
-I do believe Satie was the original composer of ambient music with his installations of furniture music. The idea is that the musical structure is flowing and undefined. There are no specific cadences, statements, or defining characteristics of form. This is what I get out of the reel. I feel it encompasses ambient music.
I totally understand your point of view and will change ambient to atmospheric when I update my reel. Thanks for the input. But I hope you understand that the entire reel is in fact not ambient music as "flowing and undefined" and not even close. There are clearly different genres, especially in the first two sections. Those genres are unmistakably hip-hop, dance, house, and trance. To argue against this fact is like arguing that the United States of America is not a country. Hip-hop and dance music is not ambient music in the sense that they are not put in the category of "ambience" as a genre
. I am separating my work by genre here. They have a clearly defined beat and clearly defined notes. If you listen to tracks 4 & 5 in the ballad/ambient/piano section you will hear songs that are flowing and undefined. There are no defining forms in those two songs. There are clear forms in every other track.
Again, this is semantics. I don't want to go into the history of ambience or what it truly means. It's obviously a multi-defining word. However, I'm not here to confuse anyone by using one word to define all my music.
If you think "ambience" defines my entire reel, the you might as well use the word "music" to define my entire reel. I'm showcasing different genres and I think it's very obvious from the 34 tracks that they're all different enough to be sectioned off into different categories, and not lumped into one general confusing terminology.
