    What happens if you listen to ambient at ear-splittingly loud volumes? does it work better/differently?
    genuine question

    It generally stops being ambient. Some discussion of this on the other threads IIRC.

    That Sylvian/Czukay LP is great.

    Yes, I think that and the whole Gone To Earth period Sylvian are some of his best post-Japan work. Obviously a group of musicians like Fripp, Wheeler, Taylor, Bill Nelson help but all the same some just lovely stuff on there.

    I can remember Virgin being committed to the ambient cause in the 90s releasing series of compilations including Toop's stuff: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virgin_Ambient_series

    I always liked the Skylab #1 Howie B's 90s outfit but don't know it's strictly ambient for the purposes of this thread.

    The Gone to Earth Instrumentals are great.

    Im a big fan of his Stephan Mathieu collaboration LP. Not a bad contender for this thread actually.

    Music for babies is a hidden ambient classic.

    If 'sinister/atmospheric' = 'dark ambient' then what about:

    Lustmord - Dark Matter, Place Where the Black Stars Hang, Strange Attractor 12" (also on the Purifying Fire compilation)
    Deathprod - Morals and Dogma, Imaginary Songs From Tristan Da Cunha
    :zoviet*france: - Digilogue, Shouting at the Ground, The Decriminalisation of Country Music

    I can also suggest several German industrial/ambient outfits like Inade, Herbst, etc. but that might be stretching the definition (and your indulgence ) - as usual I am probably simplifying/getting this all wrong, so apologies for that

    Too techno for this thread, probably, but perhaps as ambient as techno gets, and similarly landscape inspired to 'On Land'...

    "Voigt cites his youthful LSD experiences in the Königsforst, a German forest situated near his hometown of Köln, as the inspiration behind his work under the name Gas.[1] He has claimed that the intention of the project is to "bring the forest to the disco, or vice-versa"."

    Has anyone ever tried taking LSD in a forest? I would fear a freak-out.

    Why would you take it anywhere else!?!

    In my youth my favourite thing was to head up to the local hills, forests and golf course to go tripping. Dont have the time and space to go into it now, but there is nothing else like it. Still do it once a year with less intense stimulation.
