    I am partial to the ambient sounds of An Ending by Brian Eno as it makes me feel melancholic and yet alive at the same time.

    The orb.
    Reminds of that scuzzy coming down feeling @6am in the Runner Bean (or some similar hole), listening to people talk shoight and worrying about the shameful journey home…

    I am partial to the ambient sounds of Chill Out by the KLF as it makes me feel like I’m travelling through space and time all while laying comfortably in bed.

    ‘I am partial to the ambient sounds of The Orb – The Orb- A Huge Ever Growing Pulsating Brain That Rules From The Centre of the Ultraworld it makes me feel all a little bit disconnected, but in a good way. There’s so much going in, but you can just zone out and relax to it’

    Honorable mentions to Alone in Kyoto by Air, Looped by Kiasmos, and XTAL by Aphex Twin. Probably some Boards of Canada too. Could list loads of Steve Reich and Brian Eno, and Gas and Some Sigur Ros.

    or Orbital’s Live Version of Belfast from Glastonbury. It’s a thing of beauty

    Mmmm, trips off to listen to some Ambient Sleeping Pill (the finest internet radio station for lulling one to sleep)

    I’m quite partial to ambiance.

    I am partial to the ambient sounds of Tomboy by Panda Bear as it makes me feel like I’m listening to a choir that are all shroomed up.

    ‘I am partial to the ambient sounds of my neighbour’s headboard smacking off our shared wall as he tests his Virgin Broadband fair usage policy limits as it makes me feel like getting half naked and covering myself in mayonnaise before using my manhood to stick post-it notes to the wall like a half melted Pritt Stick’

    I am partial to the ambient sounds of Mr Scruff, but in particular “Get a move on” as it makes me feel like having a lazy head bob sitting out on a deck in the summer. Funky jazzy beats, relaxing like a decent tea after a shite meeting, or the first pint after a shite week. Maybe I just need to change jobs.

    This is pretty easy, ‘I am partial to the ambient sounds of ______________________as it makes me feel____________________’ the second blank is ‘floaty’.

    I am partial to the ambient sounds of Klaus Schulze’s Mirage as its two pieces, Velvet Voyage and Crystal Lake, both 30 minutes long, make me feel like I’m actually on a ship which has broken its moorings and is drifting serenely across a calm sea on a clear sky night. The serenity, however, begins to disappear with the sounds of birds and rising waves, along with shooting stars above. This rising crescendo climaxes as the drifting ship reaches a foreign shore … and all that ensues …
    It’s pure one hour of bliss … and probably Klaus’s best and purest sound … check what can only be described as an approaching bass in Velvet Voyage at the 10 minute mark on …

    I am partial to the ambient sounds of Keep the streets empty for me by Fever Ray as it makes me feel like I’m drifting through a sepia frozen street scape in the dead of night with a secret lover and we can’t tell if we might actually be foxes.

  11. The Bottler

    I am partial to the ambient sound of “Will you” Hazel O’Connor. Sublime Sax with a 15 year old single malt. Nice.

    I am partial to the ambient sounds of Sigur Rós’ Ára Bátur as it is amazing, it feeds you, it is soulful. It is immense with sadness, happiness, relief, pleasure. I don’t know the lyrics, I don’t know if I want to know them. It is what you take; it is real. The version live at Abbey Road below is beautiful.

      Herr Frau, winner announced in the morning. Sorry for the delay. The entries were so ambient we sort of drifted off. Thank you.
