This is the page for the GENRE Series of Andy Murkin albums

In 2007 the first of the GENRE Series albums were released,
originally to gather music of the same style on the same album.

Later, some GENRE Series albums began to contain unique material, not released elsewhere.

There are 5 different types of GENRE Series albums:

1 The Ambient albums contain ambient/soundscape music which uses
natural, musical and electronic sounds which are designed
both to reflect and shape the atmosphere around us.
Recent releases have been described as 'Soundscapes'
due to their extensive use of field recordings of natural sounds.

2 The Classical albums are so called because the music
is mostly instrumental and draws largely on the western
classical tradition, ancient and modern, for its sounds and structures.

3 The Experimental albums are designed to contain
the more difficult and 'avant-garde' pieces.

4 The Easy Listening albums gather together tracks of a less
challenging nature, whether they be jazzy, slow or 'new age-y'.

5 The Sampler albums contain tracks marked 'remixed' or
'previously unreleased', but which are on GENRE Series albums
mixed with previously available material.

All these albums are described down below.
