The third in the series of live, improvised ambient albums. Another 17 quiet ambient songs - mainly piano and baritone guitar - with 17 accompanying photographs. How the music is created: A 16 bar phrase is played. That phrase is fed into a slowly decaying 16 bar loop, similar to the one used in Twilight Sessions. That loop is fed into a slowly decaying 6 bar loop which repeats the first loop every 6 bars, so that soon, there are several layers of the original phrase that interact and create...

An album of quiet piano-based ambient music from Bing Satellites. www.bingsatellites.com Also available on CD from bingsatellites.bandcamp.com Live music is a wonderful thing!

Beautiful and chilled. 'The Snow Imposed Silence' is the wonderful new album from Cousin Silas. Many of you will know this music from his previous releases on Fflint Central , Earth Monkey and justnotnormal , as well as appearances on several compilations. But for those of you new to this artist, this is a lush, drifting ambient album. Think of Namlook or Tangerine Dream and you are somewhere close, though this album has a unique flavour.     MySpace     blog

The third release on BFW recordings from Closer Contact is a collaboration with Meteer. This is an expertly crafted album of abstract ambience. But don't assume that this is a cold album, beause it certainly isn't! Stripped almost completely of melody or rhythm, this is warm, friendly and quite psychedelic. What is left is minimal, beautiful and intelligent. All songs written, arranged, mixed, recorded and produced by Magnus Larsson & Bjorn Asserhed spring 2010.

The seventh release on BFW from i AM esper is perhaps the most melodic and accessible. This is much more melancholic and ambient in places. More delicate than some of the heavy drones we have heard in the past. A pretty damned wonderful EP!

Original cover photograph by Fiona Burgin The seventh compilation from BFW recordings, featuring music from current and future BFW releases, from December 2010 to March 2011. This is probably the most ambient compilation we have released so far, although there are elements of indie guitar noise and glitchy electronics thrown in there for good measure. All in all, a great album showcasing the wide range of music we release - all available to download for free from BFW recordings.

The new album of live ambient music performed by Bing Satellites during December 2013. The album is also available now on gatefold CD from bingsatellites.bigcartel.com The music is played into a long, slowly decaying loop. These loops are quite long (often around 90 seconds or more) and with very little rhythm to speak of, it is difficult to know precisely where I am in the loop, so I can add notes and sounds where I see fit, but can never know exactly what I am adding these notes to....

The fantastic new ambient album from SineRider, his sixth release on BFW. The album is made using a old hand held tape recorder and making drones out of and sampling those recordings. There is hiss and crackle, wow and flutter that could only come from such a source. This gives the album a unique atmospheric feel. Couple that with the ear and skill of a producer such as SineRider and you have an ambient masterpiece on your hands.
