The Ambient Visitor - Thirteen

Release date: 12 June 2013


The Ambient Visitor Thirteen BFW recordings netlabel

Total running time: 56:54

The new longform ambient album from The Ambient Visitor, a side project of BFW founder Bing Satellites.

A continuous, 57 minute piece split into three parts.

The music is generative:
each note is played in a long loop, the length of each loop if different for each note, so although the music may seem to vary only slightly, it never quite repeats itself.

I decided, perhaps because this is the thirteenth album, to start off in a darker mood. However, the key changes from the minor to a brighter major around half way.

The tracks on this album (and albums to follow) is named after Apollo near-Earth asteroids, objects whose orbits cross that of Earth.

There are many hundreds of known Apollo asteroids, though only a few dozen have been named officially, so I may run out of names from this list as quickly as I did with TNOs.


  1. Xanthus
  2. Asclepius
  3. Nereus

The Ambient Visitor

is one ambient alter ego of BFW founder Bing Satellites.

Deep and mysterious longform ambient music.

The music is generative - each note is played in its own loop. The length of each loop is slightly different for each note, so patterns occur and the music never quite repeats itself.
