It's hard to believe there are still 9 months until the presidential election here in the US. It feels like the 2016 campaign never ended. Working in TV news I need to remind myself to step back, log off Twitter, turn off the tv, and listen to some ambient music, especially meditative music.
I know most ambient music is good for meditation but for this mix, I was looking for formless music that's not dark, something that wouldn't be too out of place at a spa but also not too gooey new agey either.
Most of the tracks used in this mix are new with three each being from 2020 and 2019 and one each from 2017 and 2013. This year is shaping up to be another excellent year for ambient music.

Just like the field recording and bell/gamelan mixes, this is a wonderful premise for a mix (..."I was looking for formless music that's not dark, something that wouldn't be too out of place at a spa but also not too gooey new agey either.") All three are excellent concepts very well executed. On this one though, you should probably rename it. Election season was shutdown, and you already released a "Music for Meditation" in June 2015.
Sorry for not responding sooner, I tend to miss comments on the blog because notifications are sporadic. I'm glad you enjoyed the mix and got what I was going for. It's funny that you mention the election season name, I thought the exact same thing at the end of March but by then it was too late to change it. With the continuing Covid stuff I sense another Music for Meditation coming on. Cheers!
