    Nuggets 184 – Ambient 

    Ambient music = music that is "actively listened to with attention or as easily ignored, depending on the choice of the listener", and that exists on the "cusp between melody and texture" sez Brian Eno. Not sure if all these tracks fit the bill. They do what I wanted however, which is to provide a backdrop for when I am working at my desk. I have included Grouper, some rinky tink tink keyboards, mellower krautrock from Wolfgang Reichmann, Cluster and others with some kompakt goodness at the end from Gui Boratto

    PS, visit this interweb gem for definitions of slang from the past, i.e. rinky-dink (now worn out, cheap) and feisty (now  lively, determined, and courageous)

    No cover yet. Here’s some Len Lye in the meantime with Free Radicals.


    More Len – The Colour Box. Used by the BPO to sell stamps.

    Track 2  …

    A totally preposterous discotheque

    Razvan Effenberg, Suddeutsche Zeitung

    ‘An obelisk of noise that rose rudely above the treetops of the Bialowieska Forest, the Endless House project shone for a mere six weeks in the spring of 1973. The outlandish brainchild of wealthy audiophile/maniac Jiri Kantor, its stated mission was "to become the cradle of a new European sonic community… a multimedia discotheque" that should "surprise and delight" artists and dancers alike. For all the wide-eyed optimism of its manifesto, however, the enterprise was never unknowing in its flirtation with disaster and self-destruction. The brilliant Czech may have made his millions as the midas-touched entrepreneur/taste-maker behind Paris-based magazine Otium International, but Endless House was always a vanity project as irredeemably vain as its maker…’
