Music to Fly By...

I missed out (again) on a Nephi fly out! So, I headed to youtube in pursuit of an earlier idea to look into music that might enhance the atmosphere of a desert - the Nephi landscape is really incredible and inspiring it seems to invoke all kinds of thoughts and feelings - I suppose it's a primitive primordial place that forces all kinds of thoughts and images to bubble up. (or am I just weird?)

Anyway, enough of my windbaggery! Here are a couple of pieces you can find on Youtube:

Arvo Part - Spiegel im Spiegel - seems to be his most well-known. Love how it always returns to the same place
The Dasht e Kavir Desert Persian Trance - a lot of Persian music seems to mimic wind and the natural harmonics found in those environments

What inspires where you fly - I'd love to know! (maybe it's good ol silence)

I have a Pandora channel dedicated to dance music so I can pretend I'm flying in one of Balleka's videos. ... 5621462469

I discovered Spotted Peccary Music some years back watching a popular DVD, Redline Sky I believe. They have a bunch of free stuff you can download as well as podcasts of mellow, downtempo, backbeat classical-ish ambient music that imo goes great with soaring. Lots of David Helping, Steve Roach, or Brian Enoch, Craig Padilla... artists like that. ... -download/

Here's some Spotted Peccary vid samples to get a feel for their offerings

There are a lot of good ambient feeds on itunes too that are less structured and more sound-scapey, some of my favorites are Bluemars, Cryosleep, Dronezone, Ambient Sleeping Pill... and many others. I prefer this type of less structured 'music' and soundscapes but Spotted Peccary fills this niche for soaring quite well imo.
