Sounds good.  Thank you both for your prompt responses.

And an extra thanks to Mike and Lena, I must say, for helping me complete my Tau Ceti discography and nearly complete my Seren Ffordd discography this holiday season.   ;D

Everything and Nothing / Questions re: ambient mixes

Hope this is the appropriate place; I didn't want to clutter up an actual music subforum with a mere question.  I also apologize if this has been asked and answered already.  I hunted around for a similar thread or some sort of FAQ, but didn't have any luck.

I see a lot of people have put together various ambient mixes and offered them up for download.  This sounds like fun, but I was wondering what the rules governing the process are.  Does permission need to be obtained from each artist first?  Are there any artists who are absolutely off-limits?  Is there a limit to the number of minutes a single artists can take up on a mix?

Any answers to these questions would be greatly appreciated.  Again, if this is common knowledge, I apologize for my n00bery.

Also, I forgot about that Lull album.  It should definitely be on the list; his best work yet, I daresay.

Hi, 9dragons!  The new Herbst9 is a quirky one to be sure.  It's a bit of a mix between "From a Dark Chasm Below" and "Consolamentum" with some tribal elements thrown in.  Reminds me a bit of Post Scriptvm in places, in ethos at least.  The percussion is sometimes a bit cheesy, but it's not too obtrusive.  I have to say they're one of very few ambient acts who can use vocal samples well (this is usually a huge turn-off for me).  All in all, it's a pretty unique journey.  I recommend checking it out.  You can find some samples here if you'd like a taste.

Biomusique - "Empty Spaces"

Love this track; dark, swirling, mysterious, epic.
