Ambient genre

Hi David, I've been enjoying your ambient works for a while now, and most recently The Silent Orbiter.

What do you think the future of Ambient genre is? Any plans to release more solo works or have you considered making collaboration works with some of the other people who released on Fax, like Atom TM or Material Object?

Keep up the great work!

garstyciuks,
in my perception especially the ambient genre is suffering big time under the internet 4.0 induced short term attention span that people are willing to give to most things - listening to music being one of them.
the whole concept of an artist album that you are willing to expose yourself to (several times) in a row), seems kinda outdated.
the whole scene is much more single oriented than it ever was. as a download this cuts it down ever further to just one track.
one track can be all or nothing to you, but it doesn't create the aura or microcosmos of a complete (ambient) album.
as trends create reactions or contra trends, i am pretty confident that people will be more open to different formats again and they will be rrady for that "om" experience when really allowing music in your body, mind and soul.
the ressurgence of the record player in hipster homes seems like a start. records simply require a bit more dedication than zapping through mp3s on your phone / computer.
ambient will heal our living rooms first, then the rest of the world.
