Calm down friend. From what I heard, some decent ideas in there but they're not really ambient, they're just sort of random electronic tracks meandering hoping to form into some kind of coherent idea but never quite making it. Keep at it tho.
>>
>>49401063
this is pretty accurate. agreed. its not a bad thing, it just means he needs to work some more at it and keep practicing.

Just got around to listening to Stealth the other day was pretty nice as well

oh my god this thread is so depressing. here's some entry level MODERN ambient/drone, the eluvium is p good too I'd also recommend Natural Snow Buildings' Dance of the Moon and the Sun if you like a little freak folk thrown in with your ambient.
>>
>>49401344
His techno stuff is the best.
Without the beats it's just really boring ambient music.
>>
>>49401261
Wrong one
>>
>>49401390
wow, just saw tired sounds was mentioned earlier and now i feel like a dick. carry on y'all (although i still recommend Dance of the Moon and the Sun).
>>
>>49401358
Celer isn't the most consistent but they've got some really good stuff.
Underrated, for sure.

I would be eternally grateful if anyone could share this alubm

>>49401414
I really enjoy the dynamic created by using both. I personally find the more free-form pieces more rewarding, but the contrast between the two makes the album more effective than either would be on its own.

10/10 so far.

>>49401414
Pop is definitely Voigt's magnum opus. It perfectly blends the feeling of nostalgia and the calm, free-flowing form that gas is all about. Take acid and listen to it again.

Mostly personal connections but I really do think these are some of the best out there.

Aloof Proof - Expo Two Piano Text
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vh1-d2NMzd0

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - Bloodstream Sermon
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E86NBqyiw4g

A lot of people argue Love is a Stream too, also really solid.

Yeh that's a pretty good one as well I've sampled it and various Dustin O'Halloran solo stuff far too many times though...
>>
>>49401575
Aloof Proof? Mah friend of african descent
I think Inside the Quiet stands alongside Piano Text as well.
>>
>>49401613
For real, All three of his albums are top notch. Weddings, Funerals and Births is probably my favorite track in his catalog.
