Yep, I liked some of that kind of stuff too and have written stuff that would vaguely fall into that category.

Is there anyone you're into in particular?

So, who listens to ambient music? Not the ambient house or ambient trance, but pure ambient (or noise)? I really like it and even compose it myself. Do I have some colleagues here?
You definitely do. I love ambient and atmospheric music. I've dabbled in Eno, Eluvium, Harold Budd, William Basinski, Max Richter, and a few others. Though I have been making music in a different vein recently, I still really love writing ambient works and I feel a bit part of my musical heart lies there; I think that's where I really say things at times, as simplistic as it may be.

Glad to see another fan around. Do you have any favorites? Or do you have any works you'd like to share? I'd personally love to hear it.

@Blue : as I told one post back, my favourites are Lustmord, The Axis of Perdition, macabro, Rosewater and LULL. You can hear some of my personal works here (those are like "sketches", they need some more work on them) :

They are 100% legal, so feel free to download them OK, now back to music. My tracks now (including those two) are fluid and atmospherical. Before, I was creating harsh, dark and scary ones. But now I decided to change my style as I don't feel satosfaction anymore when creating dark and harsh tracks.

I've actually been getting into Ambient lately, but still trying to figure out what people think are "essential" albums of the genre.

@Anteater : AmbientMusicGuide.com - A Guide To Essential Ambient & Downtempo Albums
It's pretty helpful. The most essential releases ever, if you want to get into regular ambient. If you want to get into dark ambient/noise you can PM me and I will tell you essential dark releases.

Im currently spinning Hammock, Alpha and Boards of Canada. Back in the day my main things were Eno, Steve Hillage, Vangelis (whose more of a New Age crossover), Neuronium, Tangerine Dream and Klaus Schultze.

Pink Floyd was my introduction to this kind of music as a genre but listening to what Herbie Han**** and alot of the jazz fusion acts like Soft Machine were experimenting with at that time, was my first time hearing anything like that.

Guys, why does everyone like Eno's tracks? I personally respect him for actually starting the idea of ambient music, but his tracks are horrible imo. Not atmospheric and pretty boring. Someone cares to explain?

What tracks are you listening to? Have you tried Music for Airports, On Land, Apollo & Atmospheres, Discrete Music or his collaborations with minimalist Harold Budd, Robert Fripp or David Bowie from the album "Low"?? Many of those albums are more than just someone holding down some chords. They are tape loops and studio manipulations and other treatments. Quite revolutionary for a rock artist.

I grew up listening to his music in the late 70s so my perspective comes from hearing him as one of the pioneers of this music as a genre. His style is less active and more minimalist than his german counterparts in electronic music (Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schultze, etc).

And of course, there's no reason to think you have to like an artist because he's considered a pioneer of a specific style. There are plenty of artists of whatever genre I'm listening to who are considered masters and whose albums are "must-haves" who do nothing for me. Maybe his style just isn't for you. Ambient music isn't just one style. It can be as multi-dimensional and sub-genre as classical, jazz or rock and all their branches.

Keigh : I know :P Many years creating and writing ambient music have taught me something. And I have'nt found even a single track of Eno that was suitable for me. I just want to know why do people like him
