"I’ve always loved ambient music since I first discovered it (in the 1980s) through the pioneering work of Brian Eno, a musician who I greatly admire. Recently I’ve been introduced to the work of Cousin Silas, partly through my good friend Thomas Mathie (aka @headphonaught). Cousin Silas is not so well known as Brian Eno, but he produces some wonderfully evocative soundscapes. His album Adrift off the Islets of Langerhans is a great introduction to his work and can be downloaded free here! Apart from the music itself, I love the way the cover picture of the Islets of Langerhans in the pancreas of the human body suggests patterns in the sand.
With the exception of the album artwork, all the photos are either by Adrian Hodges, Jesus Olmo or Thomas Mathie and are used with their permission.
If anyone out there wants to use any of the material that comes under the Creative Commons, please feel free. All I ask is to let me know. I love to see what images people use to the music (or even hear remixes, etc.). I can then add you to the blog!
