Chapter One traces how the ambient emphasis on private, reflective moods developed out of the unexpected alignment of postwar Japanese background music and the “environmental art” of the 1960s avant-garde, converging through Expo ‘70 into the “Erik Satie boom” and the emergence of ambient music in the late 1970s.
