Urban Ambience was formed approximately 10 years ago as an
outgrowth of an experimental radio performance. The intent of the
band, then as now, was to capture the background noise of the city
and embody it in a sonically intriguing setting. While acknowledging
debts to John Cage, Brian Eno, and the Soho minimalists, Urban
Ambience strives to produce an individual and personal sonic
signature that allows room for composition alongside improvisation,
gesture and coincidence as well as melody and harmony, conceptual art
rooted in hands-on sound sculpting.
