Hi all,

I created a new playlist on Spotify, hoping to be both a place where you can listen to some of the best from the contemplative classical genre, but also to discover new emerging artist that would otherwise go unnoticed.

Here's the link: https://open.spotify.com/playlist/03cLHWp2uNZDopjfmN9ZrW?si=CUxdeSifTdaY9hJg7OqjEw

If you have any suggestion on new artists to feature please write below, I'd love also to add some of the VI Control members if you have tracks that fit. And if you like the playlist don't forget to follow thank you!

Cheers

Jane Antonia Cornish (especially Into Silence, which I like as much as Olafur)
Caroline Shaw (especially Orange)
Anna Thorvaldsdottir (a bit more avante guarde, but check out her Ariel record)

Thank you @ism, really like Jane Antonia Cornish. Caroline Shaw also is an amazing composer, very good suggestions.

Wow that's great - thanks very much for sharing.

I was going to suggest some Johann Johannsson but I see you have that covered!

The problem with modern classical music is mainly the titles.

Been listening to this playlist the last few days and really enjoying most of it.
I will go through it at some point and create another PL from all the artists that I liked within this one.
Shocked to see Aphex Twin was one of the artist when I checked to see who it was.
Now I recall that I purchased a track he did with a Philip Glass Orchestration:
