Some music is meant to be the main event: it demands your full focus and attention. And some music—is just for ambiance.

The term “furniture music” was coined by the composer Erik Satie in the early 20th century to describe music that blends into the atmosphere of a room. It’s music with color, texture, and character—but no specific storyline. On tonight’s episode of Second Inversion, we’ll explore how composers today are expanding upon the notion of ambient and atmospheric music.
