Ambiology: A tribute to the late Brian McBride (Stars of the Lid)

Brian McBride, one half of the beloved ambient music duo, Stars of the Lid, passed away last week at the age of 53. Along with Brian Eno, I credit Stars of the Lid for my love of ambient music, they made me realize that this genre was more than long drawn out notes, they are journeys through sound, they’re sonic embodiments of our deepest humanity. McBride will be dearly missed.

Today on Ambiology, we celebrate the life and work of Brian McBride through some of his solo music and the work of Stars of the Lid.

I grew up in a military family. I had the opportunity to move all over the United States as well as to other countries. Maybe it is from that, but I LOVE hearing people's story. I have one of the coolest jobs getting to be a part of sharing others journeys and listening to their experiences. My background is in the arts, marketing, and design. Having lived in Omaha now for half my life it is definitely home and I am proud to be a part of the team here at KIOS sharing this city's voice and story.
