If there's one genre where the music can be related to imagery, surely it must be ambient for its 'visual' qualities.
The idea is to find pictures that you think are somehow fitting for the ambient piece. With google image search and some creative search terms you can find plenty of nice pics.

To prevent a messy and bandwith-heavy topic I suggest only to post the links.

Brian Eno & Harold Budd - First Light

Brian Eno - The Lost Day

Tetsu Inoue - Chill In Chill Out

Tangerine Dream - Rubycon

yw I just stumbled upon it on YT
He makes so much different music it can't be classified under one or two genres. There's something for everyone. Some of his stuff is not much more than wallpaper ambient, while other music is (much) more melodic and/or rhythmic. It also depends who he collaborates with. He can play a nice jazz guitar too. Surely one of the most versatile and diverse artists in electronic music.

Now Playing / the ultimate 'ambient'?

Here's a piece of Russian choir music by Rachmaninov:

Pavel G. Chesnokov - To Thee We Sing

I don't care for the words and religious meaning. But I listen to all music with an 'ambient ear' so to speak... and I couldn't help notice its distinct ambient qualities. Slowly moving, relaxing, otherworldly harmonies. Wow. In a way, this is the ultimate ambient music. :)

Speedy J - A Shocking Hobby

for the more 'industrial' side of techno
with some of the loudest, most agressive and awesome beats and noises you'll ever hear (but still listenable)
I almost couldn't believe my ears when I heard the beats on 'Actor Nine'

a perfect counterweight for all the ambient :D

Michael Stearns - Planetary Unfolding

My number one into eternity.

yeah, most of us should exercise to compensate for our modern lifestyle (too little movement, bad food)... but I believe exercising wouldn't be necessary if you'd eat healthy and would be (much) more physically active in general, throughout the day...
it's not like wild animals have to 'exercise' to stay in good health...they get their basic body movement naturally

Tangerine Dream - Tangram
I love set 1.

Steve Roach & Vir Unis - Blood Machine
I still feel that nothing else I've heard in the 'fractal grooves' department compares to this one. 'Sense' is my favorite, an incredible piece.

The Dark Knight OST
Great dark orchestral mood music with the fattest sound you can possibly imagine, but too much of the same.

and about 20 times Scriabin - Etude Op. 8 No. 5, a new favorite..

Maybe I'm really weird... but "Magnificent Void" I've never thought of as 'dark'.

That means you understand the album.
You could say it's a balanced play of darker and lighter tones and colors, which makes it sort of 'neutral' if that makes any sense.
But in the end everything we may assiociate with 'darkness' or 'light' doesn't exist in the Void anyway. 8)

Insurrection is like a glorified, but decent episode indeed and Nemesis is just weird, out of place and didn't feel like Star Trek anymore... but First Contact is one of Star Trek's finest moments to me (next to the best DS9 episodes)... a defining movie with the whole TNG crew at their best and everything in the right proportions (action, drama, humor etc.)... and of course, the Borg!  ;D

I dropped the Scriabin, but meanwhile I have been progressing slowly but steadily with...

Rachmaninov - Prelude Op.32 No.10

An exquisite piece I am deeply in love with. I looked for some background info and apparently it was Rachmaninov's own favorite. He was inspired by this painting called "The Return" when he made it:
