The latest update to my Stasis Report ambient-music playlist on Spotify adds the following tracks:
✚ Two of the more sedate cues (“Morning Fires,” “I Do What I Love”) from Rachel Grimes’ score to the film The Doctor from India, a documentary directed by Jeremy Frindel. The soundtrack was released on May 18: rachelgrimes.bandcamp.com. In addition to Grimes’ piano and sound design, the album credits Jacob Duncan with saxophone and flute, and Scott Moore with violin. Rachel Grimes is a founding member of the chamber-rock group Rachel’s.
✚ “Media” from Mark Rushton’s 2018 collection The Variations. Rushton is based in Iowa City, Iowa, and maintains an excellent podcast of his ambient music: ambient.libsyn.com.
✚ “TCCTF” from Caterina Barbieri’s April 2017 album, Patterns of Consciousness. She’s released at least three sets since then. This, however, is the most recent on Spotify.
✚ “The Unveiling” by Noveller, aka Brooklyn-based guitarist and filmmaker Sarah Lipstate, off the 2017 album A Pink Sunset for No One. She’s subsequently released a live album, Live at Dockside, however this is the most recent one on Spotify.
✚ Jon Hopkins’ “Echo Dissolve,” off his Singularity, released May 4: jonhopkins.bandcamp.com.
✚ “Torn Polaroid” from the score by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross of Nine Inch Nails for the documentary The Vietnam War by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick: nin.com. Nine Inch Nails released an album on Friday, June 22, titled Bad Witch, none of which would make particular sense in an ambient playlist.
