Music. It’s everywhere: in the rustle of the leaves, in the flowing river, in the passing cars, in the hustle and bustle of the city. Have you ever wondered where the sounds in music come from? How are they created? Anton Sibil will tell you that, from his subjective worldview.
ANTON SIBIL ON THE ORIGINS
Today we’re going to talk about ambient. What is ambient at all? The English word ambient is translated as “ambient”. It’s a beautiful style of music that is based on the sounds we hear around us. Ever noticed the melodic sound of a thunderstorm or the pounding of heels on the pavement?
Brian Eno once noticed it, back in the 1970s. Legend has it that he was at home with a fracture and, for his inability to do his usual activities, lay in bed and listened to the sounds of his surroundings. Ino caught a musicality and regularity in these sounds.
Ambient music immerses the mind, helps to understand the essence, to understand oneself and to find the inner equilibrium. According to Anton Sibil’s subjective opinion, an understanding person cannot do without this music.
BALANCE OF INITIAL AND NECESSARY
Everything in this world has its own development, a natural evolution. Ambient is not an exception. This style is not understood by everyone. However, people who got into ambient wanted to share it with others. But how to do it? That’s right, to modernize the style in a way that is more understandable for human audio perception. That’s how various styles emerged, with ambient and its sub-genres as the basis. New genres became popular and there were more people who understood them. In this way a balance was achieved.
ANTON SIBIL ABOUT AMBIENT SUBGENRES
Thanks to ambient we now know such styles as:
Space ambient. In this style you hear a measured tempo of sound and monotony, synthetic sounds are used.
Lowercase. This is quite a specific form of ambient. There are quiet sounds, which are accompanied by segments of ringing silence.
Psybent. A combination of psychedelic trance, ambient and ethnic music.
Ambient Techno. This is also characterized by danceable ambient directions.
The existence of these sub-genres, according to Anton Sibyl, shows how much ambient influenced the whole cultural branch, just imagine how many people found themselves and like-minded people thanks to this music.
