Matt Borghi – Ambient Soundbath on Insight Timer

Matt Borghi Ambient Soundbath Insight Time

For folks that use Insight Timer, I’m now posting music there. You can access my profile and the music here. The entire Insight Timer system works on donations and it’s a great tool for meditation, relaxation and stress reduction.

I’m considering doing some guided meditations there, along the lines of the group meditations that I lead. Please comment on this post if that’s something that appeals to you.

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #92 – Eye of God in Infrared

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #92 - Eye of God in Infrared
/

This episode of the Ambient Soundbath Podcast is dedicated to the memory of Harold Budd. Harold Budd has been featured many times on this podcast and has played a prominent role in my musical life. I believed that Harold Budd was America’s greatest living composer; and now he has passed on to the next plane. Thank you, Maestro Budd, for sharing your work with us. Rest in Peace – Harold Budd (May 24, 1936 – December 8, 2020)

Program note – The title of this work – ‘Eye of God in Infrared‘ refers to a feature of the Helix Nebula known as the ‘Eye of God’. Additionally, the title of the work has a cadence that reminds me very much of Harold Budd’s titles and poetry.

Ambient Soundbath – Music for Thinking and Being Playlist on Spotify

For fans of the Ambient Soundbath Podcast, please follow the Ambient Soundbath – Music for Thinking and Being playlist on Spotify. Some of you may recall that this started life as the Restful Drones and Ambient Spaces playlist, but since it was comprised of a lot of Ambient Soundbath music, I decided to make it official and change the name. There’s a lot of music on this playlist that couldn’t or didn’t make it on onto the podcast, for whatever reason. This playlist is not only great exposure for the artists featured, but unlike a podcast, it actually gets the artists a little money every time somebody listens to their music.

I really hope you’ll give this playlist a listen.

For artists looking to be featured on the playlist, please feel free to contact me through the form below.

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #89 – Vanishing Point – Audio Post

This episode of the Ambient Soundbath Podcast, number 89 is special and one that I’m particularly excited about. While I’ve created original music for dozens of Soundbath episodes myself, this is the first time that I’ve pulled in another artist, in this case, it’s my long-time friend and collaborator, Michael Teager.

We have a new recording, the first in several years, Subterranean Bearings, that we just released and this Soundbath, titled Vanishing Point, is an homage of sorts to that recording, but also to our deep immersion live performances that easily have gone over two, uninterrupted, hours. For Michael and myself, our performances are deep, non-verbal conversations where we listen, reflect and respond, in the moment, with our instruments.

With this Ambient Soundbath program, we’ve created exactly that, a deep listening, immersive performance, created exclusively for the Ambient Soundbath Podcast. If you like what you hear, you can find our body of work on Spotify, but also, you can pick up our newest recording, Subterranean Bearings here.

Thank you, as always, for listening and I hope you enjoy this episode of the Ambient Soundbath Podcast.

I haven’t done a multi-artist Ambient Soundbath, that didn’t include my own work, in quite some time…. years, maybe. But with this program, I’ve put together a playlist of some tracks that I’ve been listening to a lot… tracks that I added to the Restful Drones and Ambient Spaces playlist on Spotify. It’s pretty excellent to have access to so many great tracks. I can shape the playlists, play around with different sequences and really shape the program to get the best possible Soundbath for thinking and being.

At the same time, I can’t do any of this without the artists whose music, when brought together here, creates a beautiful quilt of lush sounds and deep textures, perfect for an Ambient Soundbath. I’ve linked to the artists in the web post, but I’m not going to say them here, as this this audio post is already getting to long. As always, thank you for listening and I hope you enjoy the program.

Track – Album – Artist (In playlist order)

The Edge of Being – Absolute Fields  – Phillip Wilkerson

Planes – Beneath and Endless Sky  – Eternell

Do Androids Dream? – The Crossing – Cleveland Wehle

Will O’ the Wisp (Sleep Mix) – Remix – Will O’ the Wisp – Poemme

Poa Alpina – Substrata + Man with a Movie Camera – Biosphere

On Burnt, Gauzed Wings – Ornitheology –  Chubby Wolf

*Update – My apologies, the mp3 of the Podcast didn’t seem to come through. Hopefully, this fixes that. Enjoy. – Matt

Ambient Soundbath Podcast #87 comes from a live YouTube streaming performance that I did on 5/30/2020, as part of World Drone Day. I did a little post-production to clean it up, but mostly this performance and the video are the same material. If you want to check out future performances, please subscribe to my YouTube channel.

Also, thank you to everyone for all of the kind words, donations and gracious sentiments; your kind words and actions are the fuel that inspires me to produce the Ambient Soundbath Podcast. Thank you.
