If you need a good starting point for this kind of stuff, I'd recommend these first:

Oneirogen - Kiasma
Pausal - Forms
Marble Sky - The Sad Return
Pasture - Composite (free on bandcamp)
Opaline - Reflections (not sure if I even mentioned him to begin with)
Lunar Miasma - Managing The Dream
Mohave Triangles - Eternal Light of the Desert Plateaus
Yellow Crystal Star - Heaven On Earth (free on bandcamp)

Ambient is so diverse... I guess that's why it's one of my absolute favorite genres.

The stuff I'm posting is for total new-age hipsters, though. It's not really your typical movie soundtrack music. Some of it is though, Phaenon, Lustmord & False mirror have that shit down.

Not very knowledgeable about ambient, the people related to the genre I regularly listen to are 36, Bass Communion, Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream, Terry Riley ...
I need to find more for night time writing sessions :/

Re: Your list of essential ambient artists

Wow, some of you have some serious "independent" artists on your lists!

My list...
Eluvium
Hammock(post rock, most sounds ambient to me)
Darshan Ambient
Robin Guthrie(although many would associate with post rock,etc)
Harold Budd
Patrick O Hearn


Their are others, but names are escaping my old brain.

Re: Your list of essential ambient artists

Chozo,

most of the artists I mention(especially;Eluvium and Hammock) are really good for nighttime ambient! this is when I listen to ambient...its to slow and relaxing(the ambient I like anyway) for daytime...unless I'm really tired and the weather is "dreary".

Eno, Oneohtrix Point Never, Tim Hecker and Ben Frost are the be all and end all as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Your list of essential ambient artists

spacetime continuum, especially "sea biscuit"
also, Shulman... all albums except for the first or second one? about aliens. the albums that aren't about aliens are ok. I think they were tripping when they did the lame aliens one. everything else they do is quite astoundingly good.

Not sure if you're aware, but there's a subgenre of noise music called HNW (harsh noise wall) that's literally an artistic version of unchanging, soothing noise.
