Genre Study: Glitch Ambient

Bin 3, Part 1 (17 min)

Ijspret 1              2:26 Machinefabriek
Faithful Friend 4:02 The Humble Bee
On Waiting        8:44 Greg Haines & Wouter van Veldhoven
Variation 2        5:09 Molly Berg + Stephen Vitiello


This is what I refer to as crafty ambient music, because it is obvious that instrumental craftmanship is emphasized just as much as production techniques. Aligned more with glitch, this ambient music does not rely on spacial harmonics and extremely long tones but focuses on specific textures; balancing field recordings, post production noodling and instrumental works into a carefully composed harmony.
