Genre Research Project 73/1361: Space Ambient

Flowing and relaxing, Ambient music often employs sequencers along with cosmic synthesizers which are played in a sweeping and gradual manner. The successive ascending and descending rhythms are enhanced by almost imperceptible patterns in order to create a resonating, distant psychedelic sound. It emerged in the early 1970s from the ambient side of Progressive Electronic with the specific purpose to attune the listener's mind to a state of cosmic awareness. New Age music also exerted a great influence in the later development of this genre.
