I am a PhD student at the University of Virginia starting my dissertation research on the history and uses of ambient music recordings.  Part of this research involves understanding how listeners, producers, performers and fans define ambient music, and how people interact with ambient music recordings. 

You are invited to complete a survey I've created for these purposes.  Your participation would contribute to one of the first English language academic studies on ambient music, which will (hopefully) be published as a book by the end of the decade.  You can fill it out on your own time; it will probably take about 30-60 minutes on the whole.  Filling out the survey is completely voluntary and anonymous.

Survey URL:

The survey will be posted until the end of August.

Your contribution is appreciated!  Don't hesitate to contact me with comments or questions about the survey.

Wish there was more out there -- the guy's work is pretty singular!  While not a lot of artists match up in terms of sample work, there are some similar-sounding beatscapes in the minimal dub/techno world.  Lots of good stuff on the Basic Channel label, and also artists such as Hallucinator (try Landlocked), Deepchord presents Echospace, Pendle Coven, and The Field.

The early stuff is the best.

Agreed. Mostly went to shit around 2008. Big ups to anything by Thomas Fehlmann, The Field, The Rice Twins, Hug, early M.Mayer. And of course the Pop Ambient series.
