i love ambient music because it is long and quiet, thus being ideal for day-dreaming and imagination trigger.

 

my favorite albums would be

 

steve roach's dreamtime return and quiet music

 

brian eno's apollo: atmospheres & sountracks

 

the klf's chill out

 

dreamfish's dreamfish

 

biosphere's dropsonde

 

FSOL's lifeforms

 

global communication's 76:14

 

carbon based lifeforms' world of sleepers

 

and somehow included

 

aphex twin's selected ambient works vol II

Not sure about favourite, but most influential would probably be the dungeon music from the Zelda64 soundtracks if those count (heard it when I was <10, was the first time I was consciously aware of there being more types of music out there than what was played on the radio).

just want to be clear that 92982 came out last year... and it is already my favorite. for what it's worth.

 

 

every stars of the lid album i would rank among my favorites.

 

steve roach has a few great "drift/trip" records. instead of just sleeping off while listening to them, you can treat it as an interstellar travel.

 

 

 

 

BRIAN ENO - AMBIENT 1

JOHN CAGE - SONATAS AND INTERLUDES FOR PREPARED PIANO ( i consider this ambient )

MORTON FELDMAN - rothko chapel / piano+string quartet

      Andrea Porcu (Music For Sleep project) - New Values

      "In recent years, Andrea Porcu has been responsible for some of the most immersive, slowly unfurling ambient music around - much of it inspired by a combination of much-needed musical escapism and a desire to create music that would aid self-meditation. New Values, his latest longform piece, arrives with little or no explanation, other than a simple sentence about "listening to the essence of fading light". Beginning with the dull tones of tape hiss and a distant electric piano, the 46-minute piece quietly builds in waves, introducing long, lingering chords and drifting electronic motifs to accompany Porcu's fluid, slow-motion keys. It feels like lazy, languid music for similarly stunning, drawn-out sunsets, with all the warmth and comfort of a soft-touch blanket. In a word: stunning.."
