Eleven “environments” released over eleven years, starting with the ocean surf in 1969 and ending with a blizzard in 1979. This was the first record series to successfully market ambient sound recordings to a broad audience in the United States, with the purpose of being used as a mood enhancer and stress reliever. This publication brings together all the liner notes to the albums and their respective cover art, alongside an essay by the series’ creator Irv Teibel from 1984. Accompanied with an essay by Nuno da Luz on why Teibel pronounced that “the music of the future isn’t music”, and its links to Tony Conrad and the New York avant-garde of the time.
