I am so sorry that I've been off the radar. My life is a mess and I spend most of my time in a drunken stupor.

Anyway, today I have returned to yoga and I do feel a bit better (even if I only had a wee 45 minute session). I was listening to a recording by Ain Soph called Rituals.

Here is a wee link to one of the tracks, Rituals 5:

Ain Soph

It's Dark Ambient and I feel that, after my honeymoon, I will be picking up some more of their stuff.

I have been into metal all my life. So when it comes to Ambient drone music, the most likely choice is going to be either Sunn O))) or Ulver. They are both extremely great artists, and perform some fantastic ambient drone metal, if any of you are into that type of Ambient music, than they are definetly worth checking out if you haven't done so already.


I am lovin' me some Retro Haze .

It's not very techno-y but Wikipedia says that Satie's Gymnopédies are "regarded as an important precursor to modern ambient music."

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S-Xm7s9eGxU

Gymnopédie No. 1 is probably my favorite piano piece ever. It's simplistic, but so moving. Unfortunately, I can't seem to find any ambient piano compositions of the same caliber.

Funny, when I just clicked on this thread, I was thinking exactly Satie's music-- a precursor for minimalism as well. He called some of it furniture music.

Well I can recommend some works by Keith Kenniff. Even though a lot of it gets ruined for me because I hear the stuff kind of like second smoke since he does work for commercials. His Goldmund and ambient works is what I enjoy most from him:
https://soundcloud.com/unseenmusic/backwards_from_10-mp3-1?in=unseenmusic/sets/ambient-electronic-1#t=0:00

Also, I’m pretty sure that most people here have heard the Jurassic Park Theme slowed down, but if not, it’s worth sharing:
https://soundcloud.com/birdfeeder/jurassic-park-theme-1000-slower

I imagine eternity to sound like this…

Have you ever listened to Harold Budd? Not exactly the same as Satie, but very calming ambient piano music

Harold Budd is fantastic!

The White Arcades, I feel, is some of his best.

You'll know this piece of music. It is supposed to evoke the Moon, specifically. It is just so mesmerising:

Is Brian Eno's stuff the best place to start with ambient? I realised a few days ago that I only have a few albums in my library that could be considered ambient, so I'm looking to expand my taste.

I'd say so. You could start with any of his "Ambient" labeled albums (Music for Airports is REALLY good, IMO), because they're very much hallmarks of ambient music. But anything Eno is pretty good.

If it helps you any, I got into ambient music after falling in love with Eno's Another Green World. You could start there, but it's not as ambient as some of his other albums.
