Whither Ambient?

Whither Ambient? – Last.fm (2008): an essay on my quest to find true electronic ambience that is present in the current moment and now replayed shadows from some past space and time. It turned out to be harder to find than I thought, although admittedly I had added some tough criteria, not the least of which is that the sound should "Be not a cancer on this Earth. Leave room for nature!"

"Considering the roots of Electronic in Cage ... I do find it surprising that its so hard to find any records just wanting to be records."
and even more surprising still that I could find so few Cage recordings!
