What is ambient music?

This morning we introduced students to the ambient music of Brain Eno briefly; here are their thoughts so far:

What was interesting was the students' response to music that was clearly modern and lacking in lyrics. Some drew comparisons to some film scores and began to imagine human narratives that might be suitable for the sounds they hear, whilst most were able to identify that the primary means of communication in the music is colour and mood.

This is something we will explore in the practical music classroom workshops later in the week.

Tomorrow we will introduce them to the teacher model.
