Video: Live at STAR’S END, 13 April 2019, W/OMBIENT (excerpt)

Recorded live on the 14 April 2019 broadcast of STAR’S END Ambient Radio on WXPN 88.5FM in Philadelphia , USA

“In tones edged in platinum the collaboration between Bernhard Wostheinrich & Ombient rings of a far-ranging sonic intelligence – which is felt in its unrestrained directness of expression. By overcoming the limitations of contemporary music this duo better expresses their un-conforming ideas of the cosmos and infinite space” – Chuck van Zyl
