Re: Favorite Ambient Artists

For me, it's usually artist on certain labels in general, like Touch, Raster-Noton, 12k, etc. Artist: Biosphere, Hildur Gu­nadˇttir, Jˇhann Jˇhannsson, Alva Noto, Ryuchi Sakamoto, Scanner, Taylor Deupree or even more mainstream stuff like Carbon Based Lifeforms, Aes Dana, H.U.V.A. Network and old school like Tangerine Dream and some of the krautrock stuff like Popol Vuh (Oddly though, I have never been a Brian Eno fan. Bores me to tears).

Note that my interpretation of what constitutes 'ambient' is pretty broad...

Atom Heart/Uwe Schmidt, Pete Namlook & pretty much all artists ever released on Fax

Frank Bretschneider, Taylor Dupree, Ambient Temple of Imagination, some Banco de Gaia, Robert Rich, Steve Reich, Thomas Koener

love Alva Noto, Raster-Noton stuff, Ryoji Ikeda, COH, and Mokira, but that's not really ambient to me.

Techno starts with a capital 'T', as in TB-303 and TR-808.

Re: Favorite Ambient Artists

Pretty much the usual suspects - Brian Eno, Steve Reich, Biosphere, some Orb. A lot of the ambient stuff I listen to, tends to be from links on forums or Soundcloud e.g. a guy called Nasoshnik, I've been listening to a lot and another called Pascal Doguet - both well worth checking out.
