Strië – Struktura

> Inspired by modernist painters of the twentieth century, each track on Struktura shares its name with an abstract work of art. […]
> […] Strange mechanical whirring, tearing and scratching, haunted bells, low and ominous rumbling and ethereal drones - whatever the source of these sounds they are a mystery now, abstracted, pulled and stretched like paint over canvas. Snatches of voice are caught but words are indistinguishable. […]

Can you guys rec me some entry-level ambient/drone? I am coming from postrock background so preferably something halfway, not too electronic. Can't get into purely ambient stuff easily yet.

This is it.

This is finaly the reason why I'm going to leave this tasteless, brainless shithole, this pathetic excuse of a deutsh painting contect.

/mu/ is braindead and hasbeen for a long time. Imbecile opinions poping up left and right along with the emergence of mediocre "conscious" rap and boring indie-rock, leading kids to believe that music without lyrics is pointless.

Pointless.

You are pointless, motherfucker. I can't believe how mad I are at thise three fucking words. Fucking YEARS of discussion, fucking 1k5+ albums listened to, just to lead to one conclusion made by random anonyfag, one random imbecile proud of his pleb opinion, probably jerking it off to his mother and sisters, crying sometimes when remembering that time when uncle Rob tried to kiss you on the mouth when you were a child :

"Ambient is pointless"

This is over /mu/, I can't deal with plens anymore. This place is nothing but negativity bred to the point where Bob and Tyrone and agreeing on the sale form of popular music, aka the LOWEST, the fucking LOWEST POINT.

"Ambient is pointless"

You are the biggest motherfucker of 2015. I'm so fucking mad you dared to clic on "submit" without a double-thinking. If I had thje ressources to do so, I'd actively try to find you, buy a record of Eno's ambient works, and slip it in your ass, little piece by little piece. After the two of three hours of insertion, when you'll try to shit it out, we'll see who the pointless, assface.
