Just a quick note to let you know that Blue Water Drift Dive is on vacation at the moment. I’m taking some time off to focus on making a couple of studio albums that are in process, as well as some personal things. All good stuff.
Not sure exactly when BWDD will be back or in what form. I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it. I’m thinking this will be a several week vacation so hopefully you’ll see me back on the air sometime in June.
Another clip of Chuck playing his arsenal of analog synths live. Just … wow. He’s a master of lush interlocking sequences, that’s for sure. And look at that wall of knobs!
Just an FYI that there will be no Blue Water Drift Dive on May 4, as RadioSpiral has a big event coming up that is preempting my program. Keep an eye on RadioSpiral.net for all the details!
An evening of deep, beatless music and time with good friends in the chatroom. Thanks for tuning in! Hope to see you next week …

Recently I had my eyes opened wide by a video Jeff Pearce put up covering Tangerine Dream. I knew Jeff was a great artist, but had no idea he was a guitarist nor his utter command of the instrument. So, intrigued by what I heard, I’ve been looking around and I came across this video of Jeff’s gorgeous performance a few years back at AMBIcon. Another eye opener for me.
Check it out:
It never ceases to amaze me how creative and diverse ambient artists are, both in approach, technique, and instrumentation. I’m so glad to have found this music space so many years ago, and to have been a small part of such a wonderful community.
