Dreamy Ambient Music - Page 3

post #31 of 128
Try this:
Higher Intelligence Agency & Biosphere - Birmingham Frequencies
post #32 of 128
Global Communications - Pentamerous Metamorphosis (smooth minimalist ambient)

Aphex Twin - selected ambient worx 85-92 (was initially hard to get) many consider this to be the godfather of modern ambient, and i can see their point. its also questionable that these tracks were actually written that early.


Banco de Gaia - Kincajau (Duck! Asteroid). buckle up, what an epic 36 min track - probably not one for the aroma-therapy-ambient brigade.

Michale Brook - Cobalt Blue. The inventor of the "infinite guitar" style. Excellent stuff.

they've gotten a reputation for their more chaotic new material, but Autechre put out some good ambient-leaning material early on. the Garbage EP has three great songs and a solid one, great place to start for early-AE.

some newer Ulver material like the Svidd Neger soundtrack, the Silence EPs, and the good parts of Perdition City might also be up your alley, just don't confuse them for the harsh black metal Nattens Madrigal when you're in the store...

You asked for it!

OK, not so dark. But here is an sample of Jääportit, their Maa Pirstaleista song (official trasnlation, Debris of earth. wtf)
http://www.jaaportit.net/audio/jaapo...rstaleista.mp3

Kammarheit - Asleep And Well Hidden: Dark Ambient in its basic. Listen song The Ruins and the Serene from his myspace site. Ah well, listen em all.
www.myspace.com/kammarheit

Letum. Various Dark Ambient stuff. Lots of songs in his website. http://listen.to/letum

Dreams Of Dying Stars - Devourer Of Worlds: http://www.soundclick.com/bands/song...&songID=343363
Dreams Of Dying Stars - In Orbit:
http://www.soundclick.com/bands/song...&songID=185227

Cold and wintery ambient, but very dark compared to jääportit. Get the split album Vinterriket & Northaunt.

Raison D'Etre (and sideprojects)
http://raisondetre.coldmeat.se/
Pretty much a standard in Dark Ambient world.

Great album!!

His collaboration with U.Srinivas in the album "Dream" is also brilliant. Another trippy recording.

If you want Space Music then i would recomend highly Tangerine Dream's album ZEIT which translates to time they are a german group thats been around since the 60s or 70s and have over 50 albums out. zeit is very mellow but has substance to it that keeps you entertained. Klaus Shulze is similar to TD. zeit is however different to most TD cause its real mellow.

Ambient space music from the U.S. steve roach is my pick for that. Alot of his stuff is quiet music. one album that i highly recomend from him is Structures from Silence this album is a very relaxing keyboard and synth sound. check out the Dream Circle, and Slow Heat, Midnight Moon, Streams and Currents, and the Magnificiant Void if you want more quiet ambient.

this is my favorite type of music so trust my recomendations

I think that Hearts Of Space radio program is one of the best ways to discover artists in this genre. You can sign up for free on their website and listen to their weekly show for free on sundays, or subscribe and have access to their complete library of past shows. It's a fantastic resource.

A few more pensive, mediative titles from ECM

Das Buch der Klänge
(The Book of Sounds) composed by Hans Otte, performed by pianist Herbert Henck -- slow, gently searching compositions using only the middle registers of the piano. Fans of Harold Budd will do well to include this in their collection.

To the Evening Child by Stephan Micus -- beautiful, hushed tone pictures performed on Carribean steel drums, wordless incantations, and assorted ethnic instruments.

Epigraphs by David Darling and Ketil Bjornstad -- Cello-and-piano composition and improvisations, inspired by early music.

The Rain by Ghazal -- Ghazal is a duo performing on Indian Sitar and Iranian bow-stringed instrument called the kamenche. I don't have this CD, but I have everything by them under the label Shanachie. If you are interested in long, sprawling improvisations of the Indian/middle-eastern kind, this CD won't disappoint.

I find much of the Analord series by Aphex Twin is a good complement to Selected Ambient Works. I've been listening to it a lot lately, and it's really good stuff!
