For the next few episodes of Blue Water Drift Dive, as we ponder our imminent departure into the sunless depths of the darkest season, we will focus on music of winter.
And what exactly is that? Well, it’s more about a feeling than an overt genre or topic. It’s about ambient music that has a touch of frostiness to it, pieces with flow, scope, and duration suitable to the music, and above all, a sense of quiet solitude amongst the hush as snow falls.
With that in mind, tonight we will hear music from two wonderful artists: Somnarium and Max Corbacho!
The show happens tonight at 10p/9p/8p/7p ET/CT/MT/PT (2a UTC), immediately following the end of Tony Gerber’s fantastic Ambient Sundays program, and will last at least 2 hours. As with all RadioSpiral.net programs, the emphasis is on community, so of course there is a live chat.
If you tune in, I hope you’ll stop by and say hello …

What a beautiful set of music. Tonight, we had a special feature on the music of Max Corbacho, and what a lovely evening it was. I played my favorite tracks from six of Max’s most recent albums, including two long players. Simply magnificent music from a master of the genre.
I hope to see you next week!

The past several weeks, I have been having a blast doing deep dives into the music of some of my favorite artists. On this week’s Blue Water Drift Dive, I will continue on this trajectory, this time focusing on the stunning space music of Max Corbacho.
If you’re not familiar with Max’s music, you need to be. He has been making ambient space music of the highest order since at least the mid-1990’s, with such iconic albums as The Resonant Memory of Earth, Moontribe, and Far Beyond The Immobile Point, any one of which would qualify as essential listening. But with more than sixteen solo albums, and countless collaborations, Max has a discography of astonishing depth and quality, an ambient listener’s dream collection. His music is both delicate and bold, possessing a tremendous scope without sacrificing any detail. Simply magnificent ambience.
This week, I’ll be spinning some of my favorite tracks from several of Max’s more recent works, including two genuine longplayers. I’m really stoked, and I hope you will join me in celebrating the work of this master artist.
The show begins Friday, January 12th at 7 PM US Pacific time / 10 PM US Eastern time (January 13th at 3 AM UTC) and lasts at least three hours. As always, there will be a live ambient performance. And be sure to stop by the chat room and say hello!
