Bumping this for a last try.

Yeah, I've been puzzling on this one. I just scanned through some of the things in my Bandcamp collection (, and I think these releases are the ones that most remind me of the Telluric Waves atmosphere. Even if they don't quite land perfectly, I think you'd like them--if you haven't already explored them.

Motionfield - The Passage
(This release in particular. The other releases are good too, but this one hits it just right, in my opinion.)

Warmth - Essay
This one is more of a stretch, but there are elements here that create a similar vibe.

I see we seem to share pretty similar taste in ambient. Both those two have been on rotation here, not lately that much, but certainly a while back. Thanks again though, but already been listening to those (maybe even too much haha).

Let me share something in return. Have you listened to this? I found it a week ago, and it has been playing countless times.

And still, im open to new suggestions.
No one else?

Also, you are more then welcome to suggest other things  @chris23

That's a great album. Have you checked out some of the albums by 36? They are similar in spirit, at least in my opinion. There is a certain "sound" that I associate with some of the ambient that emerged in the early Biosphere days in the UK and Europe that isn't well represented in the US. I think both of these artists capture that spirit well.

I have and I used to be a fan of 36, and this still is to some degree. His overall sound is darker and rather sad, while Telluric Waves is just deep,brooding and explorative. Thats why I dont fancy Lomax newer works as much, although his latest was getting back to that deep sound a little.

But thanks for responding.
I dont know how many times I have been listening to this album (guess around 200+). Its so great. So much depth and texture. Sounds come in and out it such delicate subtle ways like other ambient producers doesnt seem to master. Its not loud and obtrusive.

Im looking for albums that posseses the same qualites or resamble this one.

Interesting topic. I feel this also applies to some work of Altus, Boreal Taiga and Rudy Adrian along Pascal Savy's "The Silent Watcher"...
Great stuff to immerse into or travel to worlds beyond.

The Silent Watcher album is based on field recordings but somehow its less accessible and more "experimental" in nature than Substrata hence why it hasnt/shouldnt get as much recognition?
I had this in my mind for awhile, even though I have enjoyed many ambient albums from the 2000's/2010's and up until now but is anyone else in agreement that there are a very small number of albums like Substrata (even disc 2 has really pecuilar and strong ambient tracks) 76:14 for example from the last 10-15 years?

Im talking ambient albums where the tracks also does have a strong charachter to them, like for example
the ticking beat of the clock in 14:31. I dont know how to describe it. These albums are almost like "pop" ambient. Not that they sound like popmusic, but the tracks are just standing strong on their own with alot of charachter and recognisability to them.

Surely Steve Roach and other similar "space-ambient" artists (sorry steve roach fans) has ever made an album with tracks that are almost like songs but still wrapped in an ambient package?

Personally I find these albums to be far and few between. Why is that ? Some ambient albums I can think about that uses similar approach is from Carbon Based Lifeforms, Circular, Irezumi, Secede, Pjusk,Solar Fields ambient works on top of my head but these still doesnt manage expand their sounds and give it as much colour and variety as in the above mentioned.

Snufmumriko - On Blue
Snufmumriko - Autumn Stars
Warmth - Hivern
Alex Bober - Alice Blue
Henrik B - Drifting pt2

Im thankful if someone could steer me to something based on these. Ive heard most of the classic/obvious stuff already. Been listening to ambient for about 10 years now. Most of what I bump into is this loud obtrustive harsh ambient. Im pretty sensitive to lots of noise and loud unpleasant tones you find in alot of ambient these days. Give me subtle but vast, gentle but ever-moving ambient.
