Ambient Recommendations

This is kind of the opposite of Wyndham Earle's synthy horror thread. Tonight I have been playing Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld by The Orb, which remains as pretty, funny, careless and evocative as the first day I heard it. Afterwards I put on Chill Out by the KLF, and then....nothing. Stumped. What else should I own in this vein? These are pretty, um, 'canonical' after all.

Oh - this vein = ambient records that are sentimental, that you can go to sleep to or get lost in, but that are paradoxically full of charming individual moments. Lots of great samples would be a plus, ha!

I do have a bit of other ambient - mostly not on CD which is one reason I can't put it on - but I'm not going to start listing the CDs I rejected cos it might limit your choices.

There's a young man by the name of Richard James who I hear is quite promising.

Moving beyond the 'duh, Eno' factor -- Lull and Thomas Koner are both very good if not exactly merry.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Actually I will start talking about the CDs I rejected - no isolationism or dark ambient or drone stuff, please, not cos its bad but cos I have enough and am rarely in the mood to get more. (Sorry Ned!).

Tom, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I happen to quite like Zeit and Phaedra by Tangerine Dream, but I may be alone on that.

Melissa W, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

certain tracks by Lexaunculpt. "Keep Drowning Chum" is a first class train to ambiantville.

chippy, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Sorry Ned!

WELL. Hm...weird as it may sound, you could almost call His Name is Alive's second album ambient. Then again, there's always Vangelis.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

mike ink/wolfgang voigt "gas" project is very nice .Zauberberg,Oktember & Köenigsforst in particular. Pop gets the 4 1/2star rating on amg,but i thought it was the weaker of his five releases under this name.

william, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Labradford - _E Luxo So_

Dan Perry, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I'm actually particularly interested in records that *do* the kind of things I'm talking about but which you wouldn't call ambient.

Tom, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

yah yah, lexaunculpt man, lexaunculpt.

chaki, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Labradford - _E Luxo So_

Ah, bless you, Dan, of course. Mi Media Naranja also does the business, as does a fair amount of Stars of the Lid.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

you can't beat chill out, although klf did space as well, which comes fairly close. i like to get mellow to isan. (not as many samples, but plenty of beeps)

dbini, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Robert Leiner - visions of the past, is a sublime ambient album Robert Leiner - Bio - it has depth, variety of tempos and is definately one of the finest electronic albums of the 90s.

DJ Martian, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Great call on 'Mi Media Naranja.' Also, maybe 'Zuckerzeit' by Cluster? Very pretty stuff... Also 'Cluster and Eno' perhaps.

Clarke B., Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Yeah, those two Labradford albums are perfect for this. Although there's a point in E Luxo So - no idea what track, the piano- led one - where it suddenly sounds like a drumkit falls down a flight of stairs.

Aix Em Klemm, p'rhaps? (Is this a collaboration between someone from Labradford and someone from Stars of the Lid or did I dream that?) Less drone-y/more interesting than SOTL.

clive, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Just picked up something you may find suitable: Motorlab #3 features Barry Adamson and Pan Sonic composing for a choir + electronics, and there is one piece by them, and then the same piece "remixed" by Hafler Trio. Listened once, and it sounds great.

I'll also second Melissa's recommendation for Tangerine Dream's Phaedra.

Sean Carruthers, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I'm just gonna guess Cocteau Twin's "Victorialand" is one of the ones you rejected. Otherwise..

  • Gavin Bryars "The Sinking of the Titanic" (granted, it's quite Enoistic)
  • Hochenkeit "omu4h 4aholab/400 Boys" (though it's more on the dreamy eastern sounding krautrock tip)

I could go into a whole realm of spacey, weird ambience a la Hash Jar Tempo, Bugskull, and more.. but I'm reluctant in fear of effigies of me stamped "ROCKIST" being burned.

Brian MacDonald, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

What rockist answers! ;-) (Admin: please note wink).

Tom, try: Ultramarine's Every Man & Woman Is A Star, if you haven't already. Also obviously: The Beloved's "The Sun Rising".

For blissful undulating ambience, there's Global Communication's 76 14 and Dettinger's Intershop. I'm currently listening to Miss Dinky's Melodias Venenosas which is quite charming rippling-but-dinky ambient synth pieces, but I'm not quite sure if I'd recommend it unreservedly yet.

As for the spacy wacky samples... that's trickier. Arguably this tendency in Orb and KLF is more a nod towards the contemporary Acid House/DJ Records boom rather than something that is inherent to much ambient. So I could see, say, early 808 State fitting the bill, but they were only ambient in fits and bursts ("Sunrise" is great though).

Tim, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

i told you this already tom, but kompakt all the way. the two pop ambient collections and in moll by that markus somebody i mentioned earlier that i'm too lazy to dig the record out now.

jess, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

three cheers for Gas - Pop! its such a chill album. def. one of my favorites to fall alseep to.

Brock K, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

melissa is right on with the TD suggestion. This is an unoriginal choice I'm making here, but the album I keep coming back to is Selected Ambient Works v.2, aphex twin. of course selected ambient works 85-92 isn't too bad either......

patrick, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Sweet Trip Halica, part of Darla's Bliss-Out series. Unlike others in the series, it's a full-length. And come to think of it, I should dash over to that wordless vocal thread, cause Halica has them and they're absolutely divine.

Curt, Thursday, 24 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Tetsuo Inoue - World Receiver

Tracer Hand, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Cluster - Sowieso and that Rhythm & Sound compilation, if you don't get lost in that last 15 minute track your name might as well be Theseus. ;)

Omar, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Tang. Dream solo albums! - Klaus Schultze 'Trancefer' is a good one

michael, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Tom's making it tough here. Ambient but not ambient. But we all love a challenge..;-) It seems like you're looking for something light, fun, pleasant but not too new agey. This rules out all Gas 'cept for Pop, which only gets dark at the end (and which you really should hear.) Thinking about this meade me realize how much ambient stuff I listen to has a darker flavor. Anyway, a few off the top of my head:

Susumu Yokota - Sakura or Grinning Cat (definitely fits in w/ your request for something "sentimental", and I think you'll like the variety.)
Mouse on Mars - Vulvaland
Oval - 94diskont ("Do While" seems like it could be what you're looking for)

Mark, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Luomo, Vocalcity

M. Matos, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Luomo, Vocalcity

I need to hear this.

Mark, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Well the original question is a bit tougher than I thought it might be. Cos as I was saying to Jess last night, Chill Out is seen as this great seminal record but in fact almost nothing sounds much like it.

Tom, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

maybe what we need to look into then are actual field recordings...i think i have my research project for the rest of the day.

jess, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I've never heard Chill Out (something I've been looking for used for years...all I ever find is many copies of White Room.) What's it sound like?

Mark, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

tom and i sort of both happened upon the field recording aspect at the same time, and it really does. conceived (although it's really to lazy to be conceptual, although everything they did was conceptual) as a "travelogue" it's sort of like an extra horizontal, americana version of "the orb's adventures beyond the ultraworld" replacing the cosmic-ness with unmanipulated samples of elvis songs, etc. it's pretty damn unique.

jess, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

really too lazy, of course.

jess, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

It's basically meant to be a drive at night across some part of America (might be an imaginary America), drifting in and out of consciousness with the radio on. There's a great bit where it goes into a bit of Last Train To Transcentral, giving the impression that the whole album is a dream one of the other KLF records is having.

Tom, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I read some article about it, possibly written by someone here, I'm not sure and it sounded like the best album ever. I will have it.

Ronan, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

How timely, just bought Chill Out this week, it miraculously escaped purchase through the years. Anyways, it is pretty unique. The thing I found a bit touching was how positive it sounded. It really feels naive in that "Acieed Culture is going to change things" sorta way.

Omar, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

That's what I like about it too Omar and kind of the point of this thread. It's such a cop-out making 'dark' records, don't you think?

Tom, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

It's such a cop-out making 'dark' records, don't you think?

a cop out only in that it's easier than making some positive. but come on tom, you gotta agree dance tends to get good when it goes a little dark. not all the time, but...

jess, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I'm just following my whim of the day. I'd try being a candy raver but I don't really have the waistline.

I do think certainly in the field of 'ambience' you find 'darkness' getting a little overdone - this is surely down to the subconscious need to differentiate it from new age heh.

Tom, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Obviously Boards of Canada Tom, though I know you don't like them. In the AMG they are filed under ambient techno whereas the Orb and KLF are filed under ambient house but who cares. "Everything You Do Is a Balloon" is a wonderful piece of music to doze and dream to. One of the few tracks I know I'd like to put on repeat and fall asleep to. I have not yet listened to the whole of "Music Has the Right to Children", but what I have heard was good. The difference between BoC and the Orb is definitely that the Orb's music is more trance-like whereas BoC is warmer (the stuff I have listened to at least is). There are lots of samples in BoC's music. Maybe "Geogadii", the new one to come out soon is for you Tom.

alex in mainhattan, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

It's such a cop-out making 'dark' records, don't you think?

Maybe. The thing that always struck me in regards Eno's On Land is how dark it sounds, whereas I was expecting something more light/happy since these were supposed to be memories of childhood places. It probably is, as Jess says, harder to make something positive (just can come up with some of these Boards of Canada minatures like 'Olson' as an example, arguably some tracks on SAW 85- 92).

Omar, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I think it’s the combination of "positive" and "good" ambient music that makes it tough. Think of how many soothing new age records are floating around (I am fascinated by the ambient/new age connection, & how the borders are much more porous than experimental electronic producers would like you to believe. There's a good article in there somewhere.)

Mark, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

bernhardt gunther is great in an uneasy not quite sure what emotional message is being conveyed. i like the later stuff better where it's more tonal and the sounds are actually sourced from instruments. beatless - it should be borne in mind, but kinda like what i expected morton feldman to sound like before i heard his stuff. ie traces of classical rhetoric are GONE. crossing the river(night music); time, dreaming itself ; and brown on blue (or vice versa - cannae remember) (for mark rothko) are super special nothingness - recommended by me (dubious?)

bob snoom, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Markus Guentner, Jess. And yes, it's fantastic.

Maybe "Bola- Soup"?

Todd Burns, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I think 'Orbvs Terrarvm' is underrated.

Mind Taker, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Modulations and Transformations 4 on Mille Plateaux is my favorite one of all their overblown comps. Ambient but with lots of surprises.

David Toop's Screen Ceremonies is good for when you want to feel like you're watching a sadistic ritual involving monkeys in the rainforest.

Also like Lamonte Young's Well-Tuned Piano and Morton Feldman's For Samuel Beckett lately, they're kind of ambient...

Miles Davis, He Loved Him Madly.

I always thought Systemische was Oval's best album. 94 Diskont is almost all one track, and it's kind of boring after a while.

Just the very words Chill Out bring on flashbacks...

Ben Williams, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

PS Blissful ambient got old real fast, believe me.

Ben Williams, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I can't imagine "World Receiver" being made without "Chillout" as an example. Music and field recordings together like transparencies. But if "Chill Out" is a drive across America, "World Receiver" is a train under the sea, running from freight depots in Sweden to caves under the Brazilian jungle, to a dirty bit of sidewalk in Hong Kong, and you're sort of deliberately letting your attention wander from thing to thing. Get it Tom.

Inoue's also written a piece called "Waterloo Station" that supposedly interpreted architectural drawings of the station as musick?? Has anyone heard this?

Tracer hand, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

I like Inoue's work with Atom Heart, esp. Datacide's Flowerhead, better than any of his solo stuff that I've heard. Flowerhead is just gorgeous, especially at low volume levels -- though there's a ton of stuff going on that you can only fully hear when you turn it up, it still feels full and intriguing at quiet volume. A very rich album -- when I first got it, I think I listened to it almost every night for about 2-3 months, without getting tired of it at all.

Phil, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Somebody's already mentioned it, but Victorialand by the Cocteau Twins has got to be one of the all time great "ambient" albums. I would also recommend "Strange Cargo III" by William Orbit and "Journey into Sacchinanada" by Alice Coltrane (although this gets a bit frenetic in parts).

justin case, Friday, 25 January 2002 01:00 (nineteen years ago) link

Dunno if this has been posted but Ohio (Upward, Broken, Always) is a pretty nice record - it's got two songs with vocals on it but the rest is beautiful instrumentals. Ohio is the band name. Upward, Broken, Always is the album name.

Virtual Dreams: Ambient Explorations In The House & Techno Age, 1993-1997

"Virtual Dreams will delve into music produced during the 1990’s that redefined the boundaries of ‘Ambient’. This was music that explored the possibilities of Ambient within a new setting, created often by House and Techno producers for a world beyond dance floors but made very much with the pre-clubbing and post-clubbing listener in mind."

Experimental Rooms is a label founded to bring together talented people to collaborate on a project celebrating Niigata, a sea-facing city in Japan. Niigata in Kanji can be translated as 新 “new,” 潟 “lagoon,” and 市 “city,” three eternal themes explored widely within Ambient Waves From Niigata.

Textural and organic, Ambient Waves from Niigata is a full-on sensorial experience and glimpse into a vital community of musicians and artists. Not only is the music from residents of Niigata, but the album’s design, sound treatment, cover photo and translations were done by Niigata’s music community as well.

If I could be bold and recommend myself.

It began as sort of a salute to Tetsuo Inoue's 'World Receiver', one of my favourite ambient records.

Lot's of radio voices and environmental recordings tied with 12 pieces borne out of little keyboard improvisations in one hour-long track.

There's even a very loose version of a Broadcast tune.

If you need something soothing and lord knows I do, I can't recommend this Takashi Kokubo collection enough (very much on the new age end of Kankyo Ongaku):
