Watched some of these performances live. I don’t usually like livestreamed concerts but it just seems to work better for ambient. Great event and initiative by Mr. Roach.
Nothing to see here – but the sounds are superlative.
Bookmarking these to watch this weekend.
I caught a couple of these performances live last weekend and they were jaw-dropping good. Looking forward to watching more of them.
seeing Michael Stearns perform live was a highlight and also felt as a genuine concert experience, which is a first for me in terms of live streams
i am massively grateful to Steve for putting this together
Totally agree with this, Michael Stearns was a highlight but everyone brought a great game. The different acts, the interviews and promos during the first hour and the live chat, gave it a live gig/festival vibe that was something unique but sorely missing in 2020.
Kudos to Steve for arranging and making it free and inclusive.
On the 1st video the musician has designed some quite gorgeous sounds. This man knows a lot about music, you can see that straight away. But in the end what really counts is the beautiful ambient music he plays. Thank you!
