Isolationism

Isolationism is term coined by British musician Kevin Martin, used to describe a darker breed of ambient music that came to prominence in the mid-1990s. It had been described as "ambient's sinister, antisocial cousin". The term "Isolationalism", as a music genre, first appeared in print in a September 1993 issue of The Wire magazine, describing a form of fractured, subdued music that "pushed away" listeners.
