On the next BWDD: Robert Carty

Okay, so let’s try this again.  🙂  Last week’s Blue Water Drift Dive was interrupted by the uninvited appearance of a flu-like virus, which put me in bed and left me in no condition to present a show with the usual attention the music deserves.  Consequently, I had to cancel the program at the last minute.  But, happily, I’m feeling better now and so …

cartyOn the next edition of Blue Water Drift Dive, we will resume our series of deep dives into the works of my favorite ambient musicians, this week focusing on the music of trail blazing space musician Robert Carty.

Robert has long been a fixture of the ambient music scene, having composed beautiful space music since he was 13 years old.  One of the hallmarks of his music, though, is his distinctive voice.  You can hear influences in Robert’s music, but when you hear a Carty piece, you immediately hear Robert behind it, working his magic with his arsenal of vintage synthesizers.  His music is visual and lush, with an ever-expanding scope, a perfect complement to an evening of stargazing or even sipping some tea in front of a warm hearth.

We’ll be listening to a music from a number of albums from Robert’s huge discography.  Please join us!  And be sure to stop by the chat room and say hello.

The show starts Friday February 16th at 7 PM Pacific / 10 PM Eastern (February 17th at 3 AM UTC) and lasts at least three hours.

Today’s music: Robert Carty’s Trails

a3826549200_10Just coding away at work, listening to Robert Carty’s excellent album Trails.  Such lush textures, flowing effortlessly and endlessly.  Great music to work to …

If you’re not familiar with Robert or his music, I strongly encourage you to stop by his Bandcamp page, which has over sixty albums to choose from.  A huge discography, and all of it uniformly superb. Highly recommended!
