and leave it on while reading later at night or whatever, I always stop and think "hey, this is really nice", then I go over to the computer to look who made the track and it's often a guy called [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

There's also a more "field recordings"-oriented ambient radiostream over at [Only registered and activated users can see links. Click here to register]

Your track helps me sleep Ev.

Honestly, it's a gorgeous piece and I really hope the mods vote it into the comp.

Re: Ambient Music suggestions

Thanks man! We'll see what happens. Would be funny to get an ambient track onto a "IDM"forums compilation, but I guess the beauty lies in the diversity of this forum.
Maybe some need a breather at around 50 minutes, before the last 24 minutes of the over the top glitch-galore tracks.

Re: Ambient Music suggestions

Perhaps these are more esoteric, but I like them:

Stewart Dempster: Underground Overlays from the Cistern Chapel
Pauline Oliveros: Deep Listening (actually, anything by the Deep Listening Band)
Bruce Fowler & Phil Teele: Synthetic Division (not all ambient, but some tracks are, and are truly bizarre)
Ingram Marshall: Fog Tropes, Alcatraz
Larry Austin: art is self-alteration is Cage is... (one track from "A Chance Operation: The John Cage Tribute" - an excellent example of a very dissonant ambiance that is also soothing and beautiful)

Re: Ambient Music suggestions

some good compilations to go for......

Ambient Systems 1-4 - Instict's classic series tho the earlier ones are still the best.
Ambient Boxed by Instinct - classy 4CD comp, each disk a different flavour
Ambient 1-4 Virgin - another classic series vol4 bieng quite rare.
Distill by Divination - probably the best ambient comp ever selected by Bill Laswell
Ambient Cookbook 1 - early FAX classics
Ambient Cookbook 2 - later FAX classics
FAX Ambient Compilation's 1-5 - i prefer these as a full listen than Cookbook's 1&2
Pop Ambient - Vol 2007 is my fave
Deep and Chilled Euphoria - ok I know 'Euphoria' comps are mainly cheesy trance but this is very different and amazingly mixed.
Mixmag Live Vol 9 - golden classics mixed by The Orb and Mixmaster Morris from back in the day

Re: Ambient Music suggestions

If one lays percussive beats over ambient does it by definition lose its qualification as being ambient?

@Tanuki: there's a question that merits its own thread. So that I don't go off-topic, see my response in "Percussive Beats Over Ambient?"
