Ambient 3: Day of Radianceby Laraaji
Few albums are as aptly titled as the shimmering Day of Radiance. The album contains five solo improvisations by Laraaji, who plays a specially tuned, electronically altered zither that produces an invigorating, polyrhythmic, ever-changing, ever-consistent ring of pure joy. Produced by Brian Eno and released in 1980 as part of Eno's original Ambient series, Day of Radiance is rare in that it happily plays aural incense for nonfocused listening but is equally rewarding of concentrated attention. Lots of folks claim to make ambient/contemplative music; very few have Laraaji's mastery, sensitivity, or heart. Day of Radiance is instant springtime.
