"I sometimes like to play with the reverb mix levels in real time, so that as sounds play out they fade in and out of the reverb"

"Great comments, Avery! I am also a believer in giving things time to gestate and breathe, whether it's letting a mix sit for a few days to regain a fresh perspective, or just taking a mini-break when you're working on anything."

Rant: let's ditch the term "long form"

Posted on September 2, 2014 at 2:03pm 19 Comments

I have repeatedly seen the term "long form" in discussions of ambient music, and I would like to lobby to delete the term entirely, since it is quite meaningless. As far as I can tell from the pieces to which I've seen it applied, "long form" just means "long."
