Jonathan Ammons Far From the Hearth

Headspace with Jonathan Ammons (S3 | E118)


Ambient Music with Composer Jonathan Ammons

Composer Jonathan Ammons released an exciting new collection this year and we have the pleasure of hearing him take us through both the tracks and the inspirations behind Far from the Hearth. Calling this one Headspace as that is exactly where this music lives. My advice to you – listen with headphones and listen carefully. It is worth it!

    So interesting, really cool. Hadn’t thought o=about how classical composers wrote for “Live audiences” and now they write for streaming and atmosphere.

      Juliet – I agree – thank you for the thought. Jonathan does such a good job of explaining things. And his 2021 ambient record – is also so so worth hearing!
