Ambient: Ambient Endeavors/Elskavon – ‘Stop/Motion’

Ambient Endeavours Elskavon

This delicate and enveloping piece of ambient grace titled ‘Stop/Motion’ is the first collaboration between friends and fellow Minneapolis composers Andrew Schibilla (Ambient Endeavors) and Chris Bartels (Elskavon). A glitchy and intimate number, it sees the duo marry atmospheric guitar work with intriguing and emotional synths. Our favourite passage? When, around the three minute mark, the music mostly drops away to leave a solitary piano that melds into what an early morning would sound like if it were imagined as music. Outstanding.
