Mood Management

by Volker Lankow



Ambient Music is about atmospherics that work in the periphery of perception.

Whilst listening to ambient, listeners are free to do yoga, watch plants grow, vegetate in front of the television, study, research or just lie on the couch, enjoy the relaxed boredom and think.

Ambient could be as well seen as political music.
The pioneer of ambient music, Brian Eno, advised the following:"Less time wasting online, less overexcited rushing around. Instead: calm down and think. That is the only way to keep track of everything, to leave one’s bubble, change one’s perspective, and regain such things as empathy and a sense of justice – all of which are prerequisites for political action."
"Eno’s theory is that we are allowing ourselves to be infected with the hectically apocalyptic it’s-the-end-of-the-world stress that some people cultivate. Yet if the running temperature is near fever pitch, then we cannot possibly win this fight. This requires an atmosphere of calm and contemplation." (Source: André Boße)
Nowadays Eno's theory is more actual than ever.

Enjoy the music on this album at a lower volume.
