wh101 Webbed Hand Presents String Ambient

String Ambient

Our first compilation for 2008 presents a facet of ambient music that is often overlooked in favor of the more electronic or synthesized soundscapes. Here we have an eclectic collection of works featuring a broad variety string instruments, usually but not always treated to effects. In the artist credits below we’ve provided information about the instruments used, and you can see they range from the familiar to the exotic.

This compilation is divided into two parts, each with accompanying sleeve art so it can be burned to disks if you wish.
