Escape Art - Air Texture I Mix

Escape Art - Air Texture I Mix

Playing tracks by

The Green Kingdom, Rafael Anton Irisarri, ANDREW THOMAS, Loscil, Dario Marianelli and more.

Today we have a short but very sweet mix from Escape Art, the man behind the label and the latest compilation series, Air Texture.

"Repetitive musical structures reached high levels of sophistication in a number of world cultures (Javanese Gamelan, Ghanaese drumming, Indian tabla, Pygmy songs). Some early medieval European music also employed repetition as a basic formal element, but at some point in the middle ages, music in Europe began developing into a different direction. The great works of classical music were complex harmonic structures but still needed rhythm and repetition primarily as a means to give them form. Rhythmic, repetitive, modal music as practiced elsewhere on the planet was not considered primitive – rather essential to the cultural and expressive fabric."
