There is absolutely no relationship between classical music and ambient. Classical music is temporal, acoustically produced, structured music. (Good) ambient just isn't. Period.
Hi again everyone!
As to your comments drone on:
I disagree with your statement.
Some ambient musicians use acoustic instruments (stars of the lid, eluvium, hammock, brian eno)
Some classical composers write music that doesn't have typical melodic narrative and structure (erik satie, debussy, mompou)
Some classical composers don't always use acoustic instruments (John Cage, Stockhausen, Philip Glass)
Some ambient musicians write music with clear sections and melodies (brian eno, harold budd, sotl and many others)
There are linkages between the two. You just have to look carefully. There are linkages between every genre of music.
So you basically can't make such statements.
