The Air Texture Volume series asks two producers to curate a CD each of material for combined release. Producers are selected from the worlds of ambient, modern composition, avant-garde, and experimental electronic music. Air Texture Volume II is curated by loscil and Rafael Anton Irisarri. As electronic music moves into the rock arena, it's essential to take note and respect the history of experimental electronic music: from Satie's furniture music and La Monte Young's drones to Cage's I Ching compositions and Eno's works first dubbed by him as "ambient." From there and in the tradition of Excursions In Ambience and Pop Ambient, Air Texture looks to catalog and promote the diverse world of new ambient, experimental, and less beat-oriented electronic music, through the musician's perspective. Highlights include: Brian McBride (Stars Of The Lid), Pan American (Labradford), and Simon Scott (Slowdive). Features other artists such as Marcus Fischer, Chris Herbert, Strategy, Solo Andata, P Jørgensen, Rob Bridgett, Mitchell Akiyama, Marcus Fjellström, Sawako, Library Tapes, Lissom, Mokira, Benoît Pioulard, Eluvium, Kyle Bobby Dunn, Lawrence English and bvdub.
