Ambient Music

Ambient music is a musical genre closely related to or also seen as a sub-genre of New Age music, that focuses largely on the timbral characteristics of sounds, often organized or performed to evoke an "atmospheric", "visual" or "unobtrusive" quality. Ambient evolved from the early 20th century music of the impressionists, composers such as John Cage, Morton Feldman and minimalist composers and early electronic composers of the 1960s and 1970s, to rock musician Brian Eno, who is responsible for coining the phrase ambient music in the manifesto liner notes of his 1979 album Ambient 1: Music for Airports.
