Ambient Music and Late Capitalism is probably not a pairing that naturally springs to mind. However, a fragmentation and subsequent reformation of the music industry in the age of streaming and sponsored content has led to the two becoming strange bedfellows. The unprecedented influence and possibilities of the internet in a globalised world have corroded sectors of Ambient Music, and opportunistic capitalism has intruded in a manner not previously possible. Nico Callaghan identifies existential issues facing primarily – but not exclusively – modern Ambient Music, and looks to those who offer insight and innovation in the face of corporate intrusions.
