Music like Quiet Music
« on: October 27, 2011, 02:58:59 PM »
Are there more music out there like Quiet Music? I am looking for recommendations. Melodic ambient without beeing too cheesy. I suppose there are tons of new age music, which I don't mind as long as there's some depth in it.

A few that come to mind are Kit Watkins' 'Thought Tones Vol. 2' and 'This Time and Space,' and Don Slepian's 'Sea of Bliss.'  Slepian's was created on a Bell Labs computer in the early 80s, and is probably one of the earliest examples of melodic algorithmic music I can think of--very nice.

I'd second the Kit Watkins, in fact I was heavily into that album at the same time I discovered Quiet Music.

I would add "The Fourth State" by Jon Hopkins. It's a 32 min EP and it feels like the 32 min track in Quiet Music 2 ("Air And Light"). Very nice stuff !
