Entirely too late, clichéd and not funny suggestion:

So I'd like some recs to give me at least a basic idea of the scope of ambient. I really only know a handful of artists like Brian Eno, Tangerine Dream, Lustmord, Oneohtrix Point Never, and... I don't know, other ****. Early, modern classical ambient would be great, but I just want a basic idea of what's out there so I can maybe run with it.

You came to the right forum, guy.

Well a really amazing one that puts me in a great mood for writing because it's so cloaking and dark is Morton Feldman's Piano and String Quartet. I think it's one of the best classical pieces ever written. More minimalist than ambient but just ****ing listen to it.

Spoiler for Morton Feldman:


Alvin Lucier's I Am Sitting in a Room is wild and gives you a good scope on what ambient music is all about both directly through speaking and in sound.

Spoiler for Alvin Lucier:


Since you mentioned Oneohtrix Point Never I'll drop in some Tim Hecker, a vaporwave contemporary of OPN's who's collaborated with him as well.

Spoiler for Tim Hecker:


Brian Eno's Music for Airport's is essential because it's so foundational to the genre and you seriously hear it in everything once you get it memorized. I legit heard this in a valley once.

Spoiler for Brian Eno:


Popol Vuh is crazy brilliant in the vein of Eno in the vein of really building a world with soundscapes and they are crazy beautiful. Oh, and they also predate Eno.

Spoiler for Popol Vuh:


The Caretaker is ****ing great. His music is about Alzheimer's and the repetition of memory and the fading away of memories and happiness and fear and **** but even outside of that context his music is really great.

Spoiler for The Caretaker:


I'm a huge fan of Paul Jebanasam's Continuum. It's a massive sounding apocalyptic, climactic film score-esque journey. Rad stuff.

Spoiler for Paul Jebanasam:


William Basinski's The Disintegration Loops is a piece of tape played over and over as it disintegrates each time it passes over the tape head. It's a classic of the genre and exemplifies the way that we react to loops in that it seems to gain depth before it fades away. He also recorded it on 9/11 in NY as the towers went down so it's pretty much the deepest music ever made, bro.

Spoiler for William Basinski:


Be sure to give them all in depth, full listens, preferably with headphones because progression is a big part of the genre. I feel like I barely even clipped the iceberg too.

Anyone know of any non-traditional bands that have appropriated the duduk as an instrument?

Hello!

I am new here. I have project to compile songs that reflect a Nissan GT-R's soul. Any help would be appreciated. Only requirement is that the songs should be quite common and recognizable.

Hi. First post. So hello, all! Looking for some recommendations for anything atonal/discordant/dissonant. Dislike genre labels, but I'm into post-rock, hardcore, post-punk etc., so happy with any recommendations in those areas, but am interested in anything that could be considered discordant....classical, jazz, rock are all good. Cheers!

If you're a post punk fan and aren't into no wave yet you're in for a treat. Check this comp out for the genre gods. DNA is my personal favourite and probably the most dissonant too.

Not the best judge of what's truly discordant and not just noisy, but I imagine Gorguts more than fit the bill.

Anyone seen this movie? This song by Geoff Mulder won't leave my brain. Only problem is, the guy didn't do anything similar.

Hi.
Since a few months, I listen to music in my bed before sleeping, in the dark, eyes closed and wearing ear-in headphones.

I've noticed that some music, with the good state of mind (and maybe the fatigue), will induce some extremely pleasant sensations, as well as more or less abstract thoughts or mental sceneries. Which for me never occurs when I listen to music in a neutral context; like doing something else (obviously) or actually listening to music instead of hearing it. For example when I spend one, two or three hours on youtube discovering new amazing stuff.
This is something else.

I often listened to music before sleeping, my favorite bands and so on, but I now listen to music (different ones) in the purpose of experimenting again this weird and extremely relaxing state.

I think it began when a friend made me discover this:

implex grace - through lumenescent passages II - sunrise over paradise

edit : I couldn't post url so I'll post the youtube id of each song:
2gV6GFAZ-WI

I never experienced something like this in my life and it was an amazing experience. Every night I listened to this and it was like a brain orgasm.

On every song, there are specific, key parts which will lead to this state or help me to feel it, usually for a few seconds.
In this one, almost all the song do the job. The voices are often an important voice.


Here are some other examples of songs that I have used or that I currently use for this purpose:

KOKIA - Tenjin no Komoriuta

jdhEzSQ6Vjg

Key parts: The choirs which move toward some more electronic sound (1:15, 1:30).


Paul Leonard-Morgan "Ma-Ma's Requiem" DREDD

CyxC5eVO2GE

Key parts: the electric guitar sounds (1:47, 2:40, etc)

Violet Cold - Lovegaze (2017)

mCGZWGQ5ukw

Here this is more the calm first part than the metal one which doesn't fit in what I'm looking for.
Key parts: The voices (2:26 and more). Means "I love you" in Turkish by the way.


Gris - L'aube

PPzL1Od_SOw

Key parts: The male screams and female singing at the end: 3:55 until the end. Amazing.

So I tried to identify what in these songs make me feel weird and good, often for a few seconds at specific parts.
I think almost all the parts have something creepy, ghostly, sad, haunting, with mesmerizing melodies.

Of course, this effect fades over time as I listen more and more the same song, so I keep using new ones. I use a song for some weeks and I'll listen to it again after, but less often. I also like to listen to two or three songs in a row before sleeping.

Can you relate to this experience? Do you have some good track that would fit my needs and desires?
