If your brain and ear is bent towards it, a plane ride is a treasure trove of sample ideas for ambient music. The roar of the jet engine, the constant mechanical clicks and whines, the murmur of passengers. All of these beg to be sampled and processed to create a textural, depthless noise floor. Composed on a flight using these samples, the Portland based ambient artists layers heavily pawed synths atop these massive washes of sampled and processed sound of a plane trip between Portland and San Francisco.
