It's the closest thing I come to a spiritual experience. Sometimes I spend hours listening to ambient, looking out at the day light outside. And I become totally lost somewhere...

It's so odd trying to find an explanation as to why "sound scape" music without lyrics is so powerful, and why it kind of sends me into a trance. Most of the time i'm not even on this planet anyway, so perhaps it's simply the most fitting background music to my thoughts/consciousness? :tongue:

Do any of you do this with such music?
it's funny when people attempt to ask me about what I get up to on my days off... basically I travel the universe in my mind, searching for explanations and attempting to experience pure, raw, feeling. Because I generally feel numb most of the time. Which essentially means that when somebody asks me that question, I just say "errrrrr nothing much" :laughing:

Perhaps my favorite past-time.

Lots of people are gonna disagree with me but I say this counts as ambient music; the ambience of a room filled with chainsaw wielding monkeys.

I like.

Some of the best ambient music to “get high to” I think is Vidna Obmana, especially his earlier albums like The River of Appearance, Twilight of Perception, Surreal Sanctuary… also Steve Roach, Robert Rich, Biosphere, all of them are mandatory listening for any ambient fan.


I also like industrial/dark ambient quite a lot, especially stuff from the Cold Meat Industry record label. Mostly stuff like Desiderii Marginis, Kammarheit, Letum, Lustmord and so on.


My absolute favorite is this ambient jazz band called Bohren & der Club of Gore, ideal for late nights and darkened, smoke filled rooms.

Oh man... you always post music I love. The first track makes me feel so sexy, in a hypnotic kinda way (wat?) :crazy: all atmosperic-y stuff makes me feel that way I guess.

Glad i'm not riding that nebula on my lonesome. I say we head to the Boomerang nebula?


I loved the fountain... many-a-time I have sat and listened to that whole soundtrack. Amazing what you can do with such a simple motif. Loved that film too.

Supremely trippy piano, fascinating images, interesting allegory

I want to see this group live. Celestial violin and a slow builduppppp

Also kudos on the Schnauss and Bonobo, some of my top chill favorites.

A hypnotic space tryst as we float away into the depths of the unknown.....sounds about right :wink:

Alright cool, we'll hit up the Boomerang nebula and then strike out towards the Horsehead nebula :proud:




Tasty guitar. mmmmmmm

I get really high to blues or highly bluesy music - Janis Joplin, for example, sends me swaying and sometimes I get uh... quite excited by it. :crazy: Yeah. I just become totally entranced by that sort of music.

Wow, other people love ambient music too! yes!

How about William Basinski? Hes very unusual. They are "loops" like- they repeat and also decay over time... the music sounds so transcendent.

Steve Roach and Eluvium are wonderful too. and there are many others I enjoy listening to as well.
