  • Ambient Radio

    At this very moment I am listening to BLUEMARS - Music for the Space Traveller.

    illus-bm.jpg

    It's an ambient radio station... it's probably my favourite. Been there for the past 6-8 years as far as I remember, not the big activity going on there. Sometimes a few new artists are added to the playlists but that's about it. Sometimes it's down for a few days (or even weeks!) just to return back to normal as if nothing ever happened. I like the space concept of it, the graphics and the mood of each station. There are three stations: Bluemars, Cryosleep and Voices from Within. Each with it's own distinctive mood ranging from a little beat on offer to zero beat guarantee and I promise: You won't hear an artist suddenly pop up who's out of range - it's really a handpicked playlist selection.

    Just sharing. That's all.

        We should somehow set up a "station" associated with this particular forum. This may or may not be possible/practical both from a technical and a cost perspective. However, maybe something could be set up via soundcloud or something? Well... and this might be a "stupid" idea, so I'm just throwing it out there to see what people think.

          I've already thought of this. How cool would that be, Ambient Online Radio!!! We've already got a catchy name...and if we promoted it right we could get tons of new members that way.

          Dax IX? Know anything about setting up streaming audio? Anyone else know? I'd be happy to run the project if someone can point me in the right direction! :D

            Or if not a stream then maybe a weekly Podcast? Although that would entail a lot of work, so maybe not such a good idea. Sorry... just kind of "think out loud" at this point.

              No that IS a good idea!!! I think we could go for that in the meantime. Ambient Online Podcast!!!!!!!! YES!!!!! Brilliant idea Nemo. I'll run it by Dax IX...perhaps we could even host it here on AO and people could download it right from the site. :tu:

                  Now this is (almost) real-time brainstorming :D

                  +1 for AORadio
                  +1 for AOPodcast

                  Thx Luftrum for bluemars, listening as we speak!

                    AOR - hehe only palatable with a strong dose of ambient hipster irony. Then again, only the most twisted minds have any associations with the AOR label :biggrin:

                        I love the idea!

                        Either AO Radio or AO Podcast (or BOTH!).

                        I'll look into it to see what we can do here on AO.

                        Well, podcast is easy, just upload it as an attachment to a new thread in our Podcasts Forum (forthcoming!).

                          I just want to give a special shoutout to Luftrum for not only starting this topic, but being the catalyst of motivation and inspiration for the ambient online podcast.

                          Well as most of you know, the podcast is now a reality!!! The ambient online podcast #1 is officially on the air.

                          Cheers and here's to many more! :D

                            Two dark ambient stations I often listen to on live365.com:

                            the last bleak days, maintained by the man behind Northaunt

                            http://www.live365.com/index.live#stations/herleif32

                            Aural Visions Radio

                            http://www.live365.com/index.live#st...whitecluster69

                              I must admit that Bluemars and Cryosleep station had great impact on my musical evolution. I discovered
                              many new forms and sounds by listening to dozens of tracks from those stations. It was not discovering
                              composers, but techniques - and I am grateful to good spirit behind Bluemars and Cryosleep for running
                              them.
