The first hour of this morning’s broadcast was in the deep glacial vein of what has come to be called “isolationist” ambient music. A new CD by Irezumi, a young up-and-coming ambient artist, set the tone: an audio painting of Ernest Shackleton’s ill-fated expedition to the Antarctic on the ship Endurance (1914-1916).
