Winter Solstice - Music for the longest night

Winter Solstice - Music for the longest night

Playing tracks by

Suzanne Vega, Atom TM, Chris Meloche, Thomas Koehner & Asmus Tietchens, Thomas Köner and more.

Chart positions

This show was 2nd in the global experimental ambient chart, 7th in the global chill out chart and 27th in the global ambient chart.

December 21 is the longest night in the Northern hemisphere. It marks the start of Winter (even though it is also called “Midwinter”), but gradually the nights will slowly get shorter as to indicate spring will be coming, eventually.

For the 2019 Winter Solstice, Dutch Radio station Concertzender Nederland programmed an 8-hour ambient music special from 11pm to 7am.
My contribution (this two-hour mix) was scheduled to close the night: from 5am to 7am.

For the context of this ambient night, I created a mix that is somewhat different from most Ambientblog.net mixes – this one is more drone-oriented for the most part, slower, less ‘dynamic’ and less ‘intense’.
Due to the nature of this mix, I suggest listening in the dark.
