@awhaleslantern hah! I really am the geographical anomaly here πŸ˜›

Here's a little map that shows where the artists who are featured on our third release of random music collaborations come from. You can listen, download for free or pay-what-you want here:

When my wonderful #MusicCollab partner and I were mulling over and pitching different ideas for Whale's Lantern 'school' collaboration (she had a great thought, early, about making a song with found objects from the classroom ... we never pulled it off), I had this other idea of using some recordings of my students working on game design in our Hacking Chess unit. We never used it, either, but I still think it had cool possibilities.

In search of ambient music, I tried to remember any musicians who made electronic music at all that I enjoyed at some point, and Zakladki was somehow the first that I properly recalled. And I couldn't stop listening to this album (still am), later I added S U R V I V E and got a brilliant combination. Anyway, I'm really enjoying it, you should check it out too: (one of the songs)

The whole culture is telling you to hurry, while the art tells you to take your time. Always listen to the art.

@dogtrax @lastnamegarrett hi! Also, everyone I follow is a musician. Here are some recommendations (mostly women, because I've seen a lot of recommendation toots with mostly man musicians): @lauraritchie @artsyhonker @safertohatethem @er1n @wohali @fireh9lly @vanhaase

@Lumb @lyliawisteria I don't know what this means. I'm a whale. But I hope you enjoy the music. πŸ³πŸŽΆπŸ’™
