Bradenton Ambient

 

 

This is an ambient album featuring organic, outdoor field recordings morphed into rhythmic melodies against lush, evolving pads and deep, soundscape-propelling bass. The organic field recordings used in every song have all been recorded in Bradenton, Florida in the areas the songs are based at. The field recordings have been turned into pieces of music. Each song is about an area of Bradenton based on what inspires the musical elements of the song.

 

In the song De Soto, it includes field recordings of birds from the area, features Spanish guitars and piccolo flutes as homage to the Spanish settlers and Seminole Native Americans that are featured in the De Soto National Park. For the song Oneco, which is an industrial area of Bradenton, it includes field recordings of mechanics hammering on steel synced against xylophones and glockenspiels backed by synthesized pads and the sound of shoes walking on sandy concrete to provide pace.
