Bud Widdowson I was first introduced to this music in the 80s listening religiously to Hearts Of Space weekly program on KPFA out of Berkeley, CA. This track and the longform tracks from Brian Eno's Discreet Music were the propagation points for my ambient music explorations. Structures remains an icon of the genre and one I still enjoy either up front or in the background. Favorite track: Structures From Silence.

about

“Structures From Silence remains one of the most important ambient albums ever crafted…. its enduring influence has been unmistakably visible in the three decades since its release. It has never been more relevant.” – FACTmag

Released in 1984, Structures From Silence remains an iconic American release in the ambient and electronic genres. It’s a well-respected soundtrack for contemplation, relaxation, meditation, and focused creativity. The album continues to appear at the top of charts and is mentioned as one of the best releases in the genre; even more importantly, it is a meaningful touchstone for thousands upon thousands of listeners who have lived many years within its nurturing embrace. The album has endured, growing more potent over time, especially in the accelerated pace of today’s life. Emotional, powerful, and enriching, it is a living example of the true healing quality that music can hold.

For Structures’ 30th anniversary, Steve went back to the original analog mixes for a 24/96k remaster by Howard Givens that reveals luscious quality and subtle tonal detail not heard since the 1984 master. “With today’s evolution of audiophile analog mastering tools,” Steve says, “we were able to reveal the original beauty, detail and essence-of-tone captured on the 30 ips analog master which has not been heard like this until now.”

30 Years of Silence
The 3-CD deluxe edition includes two bonus discs of pieces created in the recent past - 2013-14. Steve says, “Over the years since the creation of Structures From Silence, certain pieces would emerge in the studio that instantly had the resonance of a direct relationship to the place that birthed this work back in 1984. As this anniversary approached – like the light slowing emerging in an early morning sunrise returning from a thirty year orbit – the desire to draw from this place of stillness, and deep inner quiet became the soul tone for these new pieces. Like the three original tracks, these were created in moments spent simply being present in the studio, tapping the flow state and guiding this sense into these recorded moments.”
