Oneohtrix Point Never - A Pact Between Strangers
The Caretaker - an empty bliss beyond this world
The Residents - Eskimo
Jim O'Rourke - I'm happy, and I'm singing, and a 1,2,3,4
James Ferraro - Last American Hero

>>52962062
It's pleasant.
It's just that it is hack material too.

>>52962108
>The Residents - Eskimo
another fucking classic. lay on your back and listen to it in a dark room. it's a movie for your ears.

I never understood the praise Pop gets. Gas's other work is a lot more engaging.

Zauberberg > Koenigsforst >Pop > Gas

>>52962108
>The Caretaker - an empty bliss beyond this world
disgusting hack material

first time in /mu/ i wonder what everyone in this thread smells like, i bet you all smell v nice....
>>
>>52962254
I disagree. It was a solid album of very minimal nature ambient, but stuff like Zauberberg was so claustrophobic and tense with the beats and droning classical stuff. Felt like more than a "standard" ambient album.

Stop it.

>>52962411
Is there something wrong with what I said?

>>52962434
Well mainly that you're distilling down any criticism to buzzphrases that can be applied to literally any album ever. Try to have actual content in your posts next time. :^)
>>
>>52962487
Those albums are low-effort works that are based around gimmicks.

you know how everyone has a certain scent that they can't smell? I have always wanted to smell mine.

What's your favorite ambient album buddy?
I think Rinne Kokyogaku by Geinoh Yamashirogumi is a really cool album
Here is a link if anyone wants to check it out

I smell like Axe spray. It gets made fun of (for good reason, the scents are middleschool-core), but I have many more women tell me how good I smell with Axe Apollo than when I used to wear decent cologne.
>>
>>52962566
this is nice album :)

i've been really into Radio Amor by good ol' timmy hecker l8ly.

something about the piano phrases take me somewhere else. great for reading

omigosh, Zauberberg love on /mu/.
The first and last tracks are probably one of my favorite ambient tracks ever. It's so dark, chilling, and droney, but I think it's very cozy sounding.
This one >>52962288 is pretty good too. Only thing I've heard that really comes close to Zauberberg for me.

love Discreet Music but this'd probably have to be my favourite ambient Eno release.

More ambient techno but one of my favorites
>>
>>52963696
oh hi
>>
Someone please recommend me some more ambient like Chill Out by the KLF. I like all of the field recordings and how it made me feel like i was going places.
My godliest ambient albums are
>Tired Sounds Of Stars Of The Lid
>Substrata - Biospehere
>Chill Out - The KLF
>Pop and Zauberberg played back to back - Gas
>The Disintegration Loops - William Basinski
>Deep Frieze - Sleep Research Facility
>Haunt Me, Haunt Me, Do It Again - Tim Hecker
Rec me more cool ambient albums in general, I want to dive further into the genre and only have about 30 or so albums. Especially things that have a very poignant and specific feeling about them.
>>
>>52963219
yeah I agree with you guys in that Zauberberg is by far the best Gas album because of it's absolutely claustrophobic and eerie atmosphere. It has always made me imagine walking into a club where super bass heavy techno music is playing but everyone is just staring at the wall like zombies.
>>
>>52962566
Will check out, but what am I in for?
>>
>>52963081
Good choice, I love steve roach's stuff
>>
>>52963924
Give this drone album a shot. Reminds me of a mix between Tim Hecker and Biosphere

Jefre Cantu-Ledesma - The Garden of Forking Paths

I listened to it a few times while playing Dark Souls. It felt pretty appropriate, but even then it dragged on. I mean, it's beautifully hypnotic, but it goes on for over an hour. And I like how the incredibly gradual decay of the tape and resulting alteration of the sound in the recording helps to drive home the concept of the title, but still if I had released that, the duration would be cut in half at least.
>>
>>52964105
thanks man, will listen to it.
>>52964189
Haha I listened to Dlp1.1 while playing Demon Souls and listened to Music For Airports a lot while playing Dark Souls, It's almost a ritual to have an ambient album that represents a Souls game for me.
>>
>>52964130
9:39 is the best.
