Cinema Volta: Daily Ambience is a website that features a new free piece of ambient music each day.
The site is a project of musician John Maxwell Hobbs, who uses “a stack of electronic equipment, musical instruments in various states of disrepair and occasional collaborators” to create a new ambient electronic works.
Here’s how Hobbs describes the project:
As an exploration of ambient music and the limits of my own creativity, I will be composing and releasing a new song each day.
Sometimes these songs will be sketches, sometimes full-blown compositions, it all depends on my inspiration and my available time. This project began on 30 January, 2005 and will run for a year’s worth of songs. I hope you enjoy it.
The works are also available as a podcast, which can be subscribed to by adding this feed in iTunes or other podcast client:
