Currently listening to Sibelius' 1st Symphony and I really love those huge dynamics in the music. Almost inaudible Flutes and then *bang* the entire orchestra. Wouldn't Ambient benefit from such dynamics? Do you know any ambient album with huge dynamics?
Heh, your description sounds exactly like the beginning of one of my releases:
Another release where I very deliberately mixed in a "classical" style was Winter Embrace III. Most of the longplay is fairly quiet, meant to be wallpaper ambient, but there's two times where it comes to the forefront and demands your attention.
I received one e-mail from someone asking why it was so quiet. Clearly, not everyone gets it.
