Chopin, Bach, Debussy, Tchaikovski, Gustov Holst... just a giant blur of classical/romantic/modern composers my parents (thankfully) forced down my throat when I was a kid
Sigur Ros, Múm, and Yoko Kanno, all found around the same time
John Murphy (entirely but without apology for Surface of the Sun)
tons of others
Lately I've been drawing a lot from what Bear McCreary's been doing for film/TV score, and getting depressed that all I have for conventional instruments is midi and whatever samples I can dig up haha. Though I haven't produced anything close to theirs even in style, it's all what is music.
