Liebesengel (‘Angels of Love’, see earlier post & download here) is a track by my 7-year old daughter and myself. It was featured on today’s episode of Quiet Space (Webpage – Audiostream), a nightly radio show on the Australian Broadcasting Corporation’s Radio National.
Beyond ‘ambient’, the music of the Quiet Space incorporates 20th century composition, blissful pop and ethereal drones. It is music to reflect and relax to – a soundscape to in which to lose yourself.
This is part 1 of a new series focusing on Music for Children and grown-ups.

Unfortunately for my (potential) non-german readers the first recommendation is a german song:
‘Der Apfelmann’ is part of Blumfeld’s (concept) album ‘Verbotene Früchte’, but it works perfectly without the intellectual claims and is one very nice ‘happy song’ to sing along with your children young and old.
The video above shows Blumfeld playing one of their last shows ever (presumably at 29 April 2007 at Postbahnhof Berlin.
