A second collection of shorter, self-contained ambient drones.

I have given each piece the title of an imaginary story.

The music is deeply ambient and minimal, drifting and atmospheric.

Expect volume three to appear some time soon, among the regular longform ambient drone albums.

Total running time: 2:15:01

Released 26 May 2018

All music written, performed and produced by The ambient drones of Bill Baxter.

One continuous longform deeply ambient drone.

Reviews of On Blue Horizon

At over 6 hours in length, "On Blue Horizon" is a rewarding, relaxing journey far away from the mundane world below.

The meticulously engineered music lifts you high into the Troposphere where you will encounter friendly Cirrus & Cumulus clouds, perhaps a hot air balloon or a low-flying jet. Mind at peace, auto pilot is set to "On."

The ambient drones of Bill Baxter are your ticket to ride ...

Something a little different.
The first in a series of collections of shorter ambient drones.

A listener messaged me a while ago asking if I ever did shorter, self-contained drones of, say, 10 minutes or so in length. I had to say that I didn't but I found the request intriguing and set myself the challenge of making it a reality.

This was an interesting and fun album to produce. I hope you enjoy it too.

As I write this, there is already a second volume of shorter ambient drones ready to release so I think it is likely that I may release these collections occasionally alongside the longer ambient drones.

Total running time: 2:20:37
