If you like ambient (NOT new age! AMBIENT!) and you like classical music in its mode as romantic or impressionistic, then you might flip out over Biosphere's Shenzou. If you have a rather large subwoofer, this LP will probably prevent you from leaving the house for several days.

https://biosphere.bandcamp.com/album/shenzhou

Try
https://biosphere.bandcamp.com/track/pa ... high-grass

or
https://biosphere.bandcamp.com/track/ancient-campfire

Bliss.

As a general rule, I do not freak out if someone chooses to give up their comfortable seat for someone who is willing to die so that I can listen to music that is much better than anything you listen to.

Now, stop being snarky, click the link, and start putting together a draft of the letter you will be writing thanking me for making you a better human being and contributing to your cultural education for free.

Do you like Brian Eno's Ambient work? Do you, like Debussy?

I didn't realize Debussy was a fan of Eno's Ambient work. I knew Ravel liked his work with Bowie. Saint-Saens was into
King Crimson even after Fripp left.

The power of punctuation.

3 minutes in to each song and I was still wondering when it was going to start :lol: I think there is a good reason the artists are obscure and unknown.

Regarding the OP question, yes, and yes. There's plenty o' room under the musical tent, having just tonight blasted through a return to Yes' meisterwerk Close to the Edge and the incendiary side 2 of Rust Never Sleeps before coming here for a late evening visit.

Thanks for the tip, Lit, I'll check it out. Also, in unrelated news, you need to bring back your sig photo of Steve & Neile in the concrete tub . . . or perhaps this one:

You're welcome f>m.
If you're into 18 minute long prog freak outs from the 70s, have you ever given U.F.O.'s second LP "Flying" (1971) a spin? Don't laugh if not. I know they went on to suck out loud, but that second LP is pure space rock aiming for higher consciousness. It's more CAN and Krautrock meets bluesy rock than YES' long-form prog freak outs, but god damn, I love Flying.

Star Storm is a particular highlight. It gets down to business at the 2:10 mark and never let's up after.

I did mention it was an ambient work. ;)

In electronic music circles, Biosphere is not at all obscure or unknown. His LP Substrata is considered by many folks to be one of the best ambient LPs ever. Has a nice Twin Peaks sample in it, too.
