Pop Ambient is programmed poetry, feeled data processing, it is like a sweet way of getting drunk without having a hangover. Those of you who have seen the movie Hero know that real art cannot be replaced by technique (Matrix 2). Well, there is such and such music, too. And Pop Ambient is still the orchid among the variety of ambient music. Pop Ambient 2004 features not only well-known heros like Markus Guentner, All, Ulf Lohmann and Triola, but also some new artists: Andrew Thomas from New Zealand for example, or Tetsuo Sakae from Japan and his project called 'Pass into Silence': with his fragile, little treasure 'Sakura' he presents a most promising view onto his new album to be released in spring 2004 on Kompakt. Pop Ambient 2004 also features Donnacha Costello and Klimek: with their guitaresque jewels, they manage to close the narrow gap between Johnny Cash and cosmic noise blown through the open doors of the endless universe of pop ambient sounds. To be announced in the Pop Ambient year 2004. As in Heaven, so upon the Earth.

Very minimal and gentle ambient/drone from a relatively recently discovered source that will likely end up among World of Sleepers (Carbon Based Lifeforms) and Movements ( Solar Fields) as a genre staple. Steven Aanonson
