Thanks Mark for posting this live performance, I am listening to it while writing this.
The Native American flute is a nice contribution. It reminds me of a cineconcert I performed with two other musicians, which also featured a beautiful Native flute :
I have noticed that most people really enjoy ambient/space music when exposed to it.
That's a very interesting statement. I agree that many listeners who would not "understand" a recording of ambient music may appreciate it once they experience it in a live settings - especially if the performance is enhanced by lightings or image projection... The video I posted just above is an example of that : the music was performed while the audience was watching the film, and they really enjoyed it, though most of them were over 70 years old and had never been exposed to electronic music or anything approaching in their life (their music culture is more about Edith piaf or Nat King Cole...)
On the other hand, myself being a long-time ambient music listener and composer, I wonder if I would enjoy a concert of ambient music as much as listening to the same music at home...
Anyway, I live in France, and we don't have any venue around dedicated to this genre, such as what Scott and his team are doing in Toronto... On the other hand, I have opportunities to perform for various "unprepared" audiences, which is very very interesting...
