    I love this label so much. Just what I needed tonight; dark, apocalyptic, something to take me to a different world.

    Curious as to how many people here listen to ambient music and why. I know few people who like this slower music - some even express feelings of anxiety. For me, I find it very meditative, almost like a sort of prayer. As such, it can be therapeutic.

    Whether it's the sound of the depths of hell, a tale of survival in post-apocalyptic wastelands, or a journey deep into outer space, I find such soundscapes emotionally rewarding. They can often bring me to something resembling a hypnogogic state in a dark room with headphones, but when I am working, it also helps me focus without the distraction that more intrusive music offers.

    I just find it amazing the effect that music can have on the mind...I find it incredibly soothing and beautiful. A distilled musical beauty if you will. It's not something I'd put on & 'just' listen to, but is the perfect sonic backdrop many times.

    I have used both ambient and techno to accomplish this. But I've found that almost any music, provided you're in the mood for it, can accomplish the same thing. I used to do homework in high school with Motörhead and Priest blasting through my headphones. Now I tend to choose the music that matches my mood, and it helps me get "in the zone" for coding, and stay there more effectively.
