Undershadow:
A while ago on another forum in another life I busked a list of Ambient sub-genres. Forum-ites may find this handy in navigating what has become a many-sub-genred thing:

Ambient Subgenre Definitions

Foambient = folky ambient
Piambient = ambient based on piano sounds
Jambient = ambient with an improv element.
Dambient = dark ambient
Dimbient = slightly less dark ambient
Smarmbient = Intelligent ambient
Dumbient = Unintelligent ambient
Indumbient = industrial ambient
Skambient = idm-type ambient
Shambient = shamanic ambient
Clambient = classically-tinged ambient
Trambient = traditional ambient
Grambient = ambient your gran might like
Mumbient - ambient your Mum might like
Flimflambient = insubstantial pretentious ambient
Harmbient = hard ambient
Oh!mbient = surprising ambient
Amnotbient = ambient for Nihilists
Arebient = ambient for Pluralists
Isbient = Ambient for the third person
mbnt = Minimal ambient

(marginal: Wambamthankyoumambient = a taxonomic domain into which you may conveniently place anything in a post-Bowie vein)

Feel free to contribute to this ever-expanding taxonomy 'wiki' stylee  ;)

This doesn't rhyme with ambient and so may disqualify me, but...

When Viridian Sun was a brand new entity, we coined the phrase "BoreCore," which was minimal drone music actually intended to be especially boring... not evolving other otherwise worthy of attention, rather a genre of recorded actually intended to be boring.

That's not to say Viridian Sun chose to pursue that angle... not intentionally anyway!

Zzambient = ambient to sleep by

Often confused with Skambient and Shambient is:

Wankient, a strain of music produced by the untalented but persistent.

Clambient is also a favourite at west coast seafood tasting functions.

Good fun!

spambient: ambient music you don't want
crambient: music for studying (not to be confused with exambient, music for when you actually take the exam).
boombient: ambient music with lots of bass
lambient: music to accompany your flight from the law
