The man behind the music of King Midas Sound has announced a new album called Return to Solaris, a rescore of Andrei Tarkovsky’s seminal 1972 movie Solaris. First taste In Love With A Ghost smothers the listener in a blanket of claustrophobia.

Florian Kupfer on Jungle Gym? It's a no-brainer for anyone who likes their Ambient music speared with the zest of a Techno mind. Opening track REM is utterly sublime.

As always at this time of year, there's a deluge of music recommendations to catch-up with (I'm putting together a list of the best bits I missed - watch this space). One quick recommendation is Harvest Moon, a rather pleasant Ambient mix from Philip Sherburne which is well worth a listen.
Two and half hours of blissful Ambient music, from Max Richter, Starts of the Lid, Christopher Willits, Rafeal Anton Irisarri, Loscil, Steve Hauschildt, Bing and Ruth and many more, including some unreleased tracks from Max Cooper himself!
Biosphere has just announced a new album called Angel's Flight, due for release in 22nd January 2021.
It features twelve tracks based on Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14 that deftly tread the peripheries of classical and electronic composition.
Much of the music was initially composed for Uncoordinated Dog, a dance production by the Ingun Bjørnsgaard Prosjekt in 2019 that explored the personal, the ambiguous, exposure and beauty – which gives you a sense of what the album holds.
Been enjoying the new album from Josh Werner called Mode for Titan. It's a captivating Ambient and Dub crossover with Werner on his bass guitar. Worth investigating.

Orphan Fairytale - Titania
Harpist Eva Van Deuren turns her capable hands to an EP of experimental Ambient called Titania Moon. Third track, eleven minute magnum opus Titania, is my fav, with its cosmic fireworks and theatrical vibe.
If you're interested in hearing some of her harp work, she also just released the Tune In Tree Ears EP.
