for the record i gave a quick listen to the box and here's my picks:

deep distance
le bruit des origines

live stuff from the disco band is kinda disappointing to me tbh

These are all great choices but - call me a philistine - I wish he'd broken up "begleitmusik" into discrete tracks. There are some beautiful pillowy floating drones in the middle but I don't always have the patience to find them inside the 25 minute piece (which, as far as I can tell, is pretty randomly assembled rather than being an actual suite of related tracks). I don't remember if there are others like this, should revisit, but that one sticks out

I much prefer his ambient work. I recently listened to the first 4 Ashra albums and made this very satisfying playlist:

Sunrain (New Age Of Earth)
Ocean Of Tenderness (New Age Of Earth)
Deep Distance (New Age Of Earth)
77 Slightly Delayed (Blackouts)
Midnight On Mars (Blackouts)
Shuttle Cocks (Blackouts)
Ice Train (Correlations)
Oasis (Correlations)
Morgana Da Capo (Correlations)
Kazoo (Belle Alliance)
