Default some interlude music I hear on late-night/early-morning radio

Many late-nights/early-mornings I listen to public radio: CBC, BBC, NPR/PRI, AusBC, Midori, and maybe a few others.

For almost 20 years—maybe this particular music goes before that—I've been occasionally hearing this music—or about a minute or so of it.

No one's identified it and it's instrumental.

I suppose I'll try to give an accurate, and a subjective, description.

It's likely somewhat electronic, but maybe not. It's somewhat mellow and lounge-y, futuristic. I don't know if I'm describing the instruments, or electronic/digital equivalents, they might be playing. It starts with mellow bass sound. Bass guitar or synth? I down know. Then there's one that sounds like a reedy woodwind. English horn? Oboe? I might have heard similar in early Genesis. Then there's an electric piano, or again, something that sounds like it.

Subjectively, it's perfect night, or early morning, music—hence my interest. Think LA Woman, but not as fast, or that Myles Davis song (?)—the one with the bassoon?, but something that makes me think of the turn of the Third Millennium. 1999, 2000, 2001 before 911 (before, perhaps, we started to get more stupid). Fluorescent lights—not eye-killing—just a hint of futurism in the night.

I suppose it's only a matter of time before I find it, though it might take a few years. Upon that, I'll probably post it in this thread. Even if you can't name it: advice on how to find it might help.






Even diversions are profitable.

Sorry folks about the embedding: I'm still too new to post links.

To change the subject slightly, I heard a song in Spanish. It was weird and wonderful, with a snare and echo-ey voice. It thought "Mexican Björk," and spent several hours looking for it—googling and the like. I never found it online, but on—I think a Mexican forum—the name "Ximena Sariñana" was mentioned, and while she wasn't at all what I was looking for, I'm happy I discovered her music.

Months later, likely a year or two, I found the song I was looking for online was by a Colombian-artist-now living in Canada, Lido Pimienta. I still haven't found a link to the song—I think it's her early stuff, but I'm glad I didn't give up. (another song of hers that sounds like Björk below)

and .






Thank you.

I think I heard it on Deutsche Welle radio—again on late night CBC Radio 1.

If I recorded it, how would I identify it through the internet?

^ You could try one of several audio search/reverse song search engines.

I tried several of them a few years ago, when I was trying to find the title to an unknown song from a recording I had.
Didn't have any luck, though. They seem to work much better for more well-known music than lesser-known works.

^ I'm wondering if there are any sites I can upload it on (once I get it), and perhaps other audios too: maybe to link from here to there?

Ideally the site should only require a password, username, and maybe an email—like here—as I loves my privacy and not having to lie.
