We are always delighted to feature the music of longtime RadioSpiral friend Mike Hunter aka Ombient. Tonight, we bring you echoing and mysterious sounds from a couple of temples Mike’s been hanging out in lately…
In our first hour, we’ll hear selections from the 2019 album The Temple of Saturn. This 2-hour megalith of a recording alternates deep noisy drones and soundscapes with more melodic sequences and rhythms, the latter of which we’ll focus on before a (probably very brief) Live Ambient Rant.
Our second hour will be devoted to something we rarely do during hosted shows on the station: a full playthrough of a single long track. Just released a few days ago, Ombient’s The Temple of Shadows evokes an ancient and eerie space where voices from the past commingle with strange and ominous doings in the present. (Just remember: you won’t cover more ground if you split up. It never works that way. Ever. Doesn’t anyone ever pay attention to these movies?)
Come join the conversation in our Discord, visit us in Second Life (in keeping with this week’s theme, we’ll be in the Greek Temple – you can go classical or Indiana Jones when you dress for the occasion), or just listen in. We start at 6 PM PST / SLT. See you then!
