O yeah I totally forgot about V Snares. SHAME ON ME SHAME ON ME SHANE ON ME lol shane....

Stone in Focus will be the song played at my funeral hopefully not soon.


Hah yeah people underestimate Snares versatility no doubt.

gotta admit I actually think the one track you posted there is enjoyable. I tried some of his music but hated it.


are there more VS ambient tunes?


His only ambient album is My Downfall (Original Soundtrack).
He has a few classical/Hungarian tracks on Rossz csillag alatt született that I fancy.
I agree, some of his music is a bit too aggressive for my taste. Particularly his earlier stuff.
However I do like his recent album Detrimentalist, because it's much more structured.

There's also "P" from Cavalcade and "Aaron" from Huge Chrome Cylinder Box Unfolding for his ambient stuff.

FSOL: Lifeforms, Environments II, and pretty much everything really
The Orb: Adventures and Terrarum are the only two I really class as ambient
Biosphere: Most of it, but particularly Substrata and Cirque
Spacetime Continuum: Sea Biscuit
Aphex: Both Ambient Works, particularly II
Eno: Ambient 1 and 4
Global Communication: 76:14
KLF: Chill Out
Gas: Zauberberg (never really dug the other three)
Woob: 1194
And a whole heap of other obvious stuff

Also,
Apollyon: Veror Aesik
Encomiast: Espera
Off-Land: Commute
Wintermute: Widescreen
Carbon Based Lifeforms - Hydroponic Garden
And anything of Underworld's that's mellow and chilled, which is a fair bit.
