BWDD on vacation

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.

Cheers!

On the next BWDD: Pure Ambience

Tonight on Blue Water Drift Dive, I’ll be presenting a selection of pure ambience for your listening pleasure.  With tones ranging from soft darkness to exuberant lightness, we’ll be hearing from the likes of Kit Watkins, The Inventors of Aircraft, Michael Sandler, Disturbed Earth, and Tange.  Inspiring, thoughtful beatless music in which to immerse your thoughts and soothe your nerves.

The show starts tonight, Friday April 27, 2018, at 10 PM Eastern time / 7 PM Pacific time / 2 AM UTC and will go at least three hours.  And, as always, if you tune in please come by the chat room and say hello, even if you can’t stay.  We’d love to meet you.

On the next BWDD: Old and New Friends

The past few weeks I’ve been focusing on artists that I’ve personally not encountered before.  This week, I’m going for a blend.

I’ll be playing cool pieces from two artists I’ve not played before, Daniel Birch and DASK, and then playing some of my favorites from long-time friends like Arcticology, IXOHOXI, and Not Your Average Hippy.  There will be a little bit of sequency goodness, but overall this is going to be a lush ambient journey, full of vivid colors and lovely sensations.  I hope to see you there!

The show starts tomorrow night, Friday April 20 2018, at 10 PM Eastern time / 7 PM Pacific time / 2 AM UTC and will go at least three hours.  And, as always, if you tune in please come by the chat room and say hello, even if you can’t stay.  We’d love to meet you.

On the next BWDD: Discoveries 2

2018-04-13 18_36_53-The Bubble Nebula _ ESA_HubbleOn tonight’s Blue Water Drift Dive, I’ll be continuing last week’s theme, which is to present music that I’ve personally discovered in the past few weeks.  I’ve been blown away by the quality and quantity of ambient music out there that I’ve never before heard.  Not that these are new releases, mind you; some are many years old.  I’m just way behind.  Better late than never, I suppose.

In any event, tonight’s tracks are really outstanding, featuring music from such folks as Phobium, Kai Engel, Quietest, Chris Zabriskie, Daniel James Dolby, and more.  It will be a fairly eclectic mix, spanning upbeat sequence driven space music all the way to darkness and solace.  Please join me for this journey.

The show starts tonight, Friday April 13 2018, at 10 PM Eastern time / 7 PM Pacific time / 3 AM UTC and will go at least three hours.  And, as always, if you tune in please come by the chat room and say hello, even if you can’t stay.  We’d love to meet you.

On the next BWDD: Discoveries

planetOn tonight’s edition of Blue Water Drift Dive, I’ll be focusing on some music that I’ve personally discovered in the past few weeks.  Many of these releases have been out for quite some time, so this is really a chance for me to catch up, or at least start to.

But what great music I found!  It’s amazing to me that just when I think I’m familiar with most of the major talents in ambient music, I discover a new source and realize I know nothing.  One of the joys of this genre.

The music will start in space, with sequences abounding, then take us through some lush and brilliant light ambience, and close with some really choice guitar-based ambience.  A little bit of something for everyone.

The show starts tonight, Friday April 6 2018, at 10 PM Eastern time / 7 PM Pacific time / 3 AM UTC and will go at least three hours.  And, as always, if you tune in please come by the chat room and say hello, even if you can’t stay.  We’d love to meet you.

On the next BWDD: Drones and Minimalism

Who doesn’t love a good drone?

Well, I know, it’s an acquired taste and really requires the proper set and setting for it to be properly experienced.  But such a setting is what I aim to achieve in the next edition of Blue Water Drift Dive, where I will play four pieces that I think are brilliant examples of minimal ambient or ambient drone sound art.

The music will be deep and inviting, and as always we will gather in the chat room to listen to the music and talk about the week past.  If you tune in, come on by, even if you can’t stay long.  We’d love to meet you.

The show begins this Friday, March 30 at 7 PM Pacific time / 10 PM Eastern time / 3 AM UTC.  Hope to see you there!
