Prepare yourself for another extraordinary release from Kit Watkins on Earth Mantra. This album, called This Time and Space, is an hour long collection of seven gorgeous improvised ambient tracks, performed and recorded live in the studio.
It was perhaps best described by Marius-Christian Burcea: "This Time and Space is memorable in its ineffable atmosphere, its capacity to cast a spell on the listener while bringing him more intensely into contact with himself. The sounds flow continuously, dissolving any contrasts and unbinding primordial emotions ... a soundworld of perennial beauty and profound tenderness that captures our yearning for deep peace and contentment ... lovely music for meditation and a landmark recording in the [field of] Ambient Healing Music".
We couldn't agree more. Kit Watkins is one of the greatest ambient artists ever, an "enlightened musical intelligence" who creates music of great depth and breadth, of sublime beauty and importance. We are stoked to bring you the music of Kit Watkins via Creative Commons and look forward to much more from this brilliant artist.

Bar none, this is the single greatest album I have ever seen available for free online. Every track of This Time and Space is gloriously mastered, and contains a very deep level of detail and harmony. The DVD version of this album only adds to the sheer wonder of this release, and any true fan of Ambient music would never pass up an experience like that. Perhaps the greatest thing about this release is the fact that it starts off superbly, and each subsequent track gets better and better. This will undoubtedly be one of my most treasured finds, and I will continue to listen for the rest of my years.

A very uplifting, beautiful and atmospheric ambient album. It has that "everything will be OK"-mood. Music like this captures a mind-set.
