COR, had to log off and could not respond more thoroughly.

Do you know about S.U.R.V.I.V.E.? The guys who did the Stranger Things soundtrack are in that band. If you like Tangerine Dream, you are bound to appreciate S.U.R.V.I.V.E.

No I don't know them. Thanks. I'll give it a listen.

I can only assume you are aware of Jean Michel Jarre as well?

Sorry not a fan of ambient. Structure in music exists for a reason.

After that I needed a palate cleanser, something really repetitive:

C'mon Dan, your reasoning is usually more sound (no pun intended). That's analogous to saying concrete and steel structures exist for a reason, so there's never a need to visit the formless wilderness of mountains or desert. Don't think anyone's advocating ambient 24/7.

I'd like to think you wouldn't have been among the bonehead Parisians hurling fruit projectiles in Stravinsky's direction at the Rite of Spring roll-out. Plenty of room for the wide range of interesting styles of music out there.

[Sometime I should play you the tape I made decades ago, titled Something to Offend Everyone, which kicked off with a mash-up of Petrushka and a Tommy Dorsey Orchestra / Buddy Rich rave-up, and veered, ever increasing in tempo and volume, through various selections by The Who, Dead Kennedys, Sparks etc. -- I actually liked every track but found very few listeners who could last all the way through.] :mrgreen:

Debussy and the other minimalist impressionists were precursors of ambient.

Then you have Steve Reich and Philip Glass who bleed into ambient territory, but are still considered contemporary classical composers.

IMO, Music for Airports, Ambient I-IV. These are high art.

Your loss if you can't get into it. Like those poor saps who think Gould's Goldberg Variations are boring.

The Biosphere I linked to is built on LOOPS of Debussy with tectonic bass added underneath. Structureless? :?

Actually, no! I'll give it a spin. Thanks, COR.
