An album that I think deserves a mention since we're talking about space music is The Way Home by Kevin Braheny. It's one of the earliest albums released on Hearts Of Space Records, but it's one of the best representations of space music I've ever heard.

Oddly enough, I never listened to Galaxies, even though that one was a more deliberate attempt at space music.
Also, I can definitely hear a bit of that old school Vidna Obmana influence on this one. It reminds me particularly of The Trilogy and The River Of Appearance. He and Roach are some of my all-time favorites in the ambient world.
I'm listening to your album while I'm reading Siberia by Colin Thubron and it's practically a perfect soundtrack for it. Beautiful soundscapes once again. Congratulations on being able to have it on your own Bandcamp page as well.
Novus Magnificat is a classic even if Constance Demby is super new-agey. Same with Sacred Space Music for that matter.

I would like to talk about the genre "space music/space ambient".

How do you define the genre. Would you count in any specified artists?

Do you think these artists give you an exact feeling of being in space?

I only read somewhere that the space music genre derivates from the new age genre.

Any feedback is very welcome :) Thanks !

When I think of space music, I always think of the old 80's stuff like Steve Roach, Michael Stearns, and Brian Eno's Apollo.

synkrotron - DRONE

This is a great longform piece that I found on Ambient Online. One of the users there made it.

This is my first new album in over three years. It's a loose concept about being shipwrecked on a dangerous island. Any support and feedback would be appreciated.

Sustaining Cylinders is underrated IMO. It might be the best of his pre-Planetary Unfolding stuff.
I bought it yesterday. I just need to find the time to listen to it. I also bought one of Jaja's recent albums as well.
I haven't listened to this album in forever, but I remember it being a top-notch ambient album from that time period.
As long as I don't forget, I'm going to get this tomorrow for Bandcamp Friday.

Hiemal - Echoues Sous les Aurores

It's a older release of his but I bought it recently and I really like it. Hiemal's music has grown on me quite a bit over time.

Mount Shrine is easily my favorite Cryo Chamber artist. I still need to listen to that new release when I get a chance.

Piano Magic - A Trick Of The Sea, Bliss Out v.13

A great ambient album made by a collective of musicians more known for playing experimental rock music. It's part of Darla Records' Bliss Out series from the late 90's.
Thank you so much for keeping this forum alive. It's a small but excellent community.

I know I've gotten a lot out of this forum since I made this account several years ago.
Got it on Friday and I'm listening to it right now. Great soundscapes so far.

Soundtrack For The Aquarium is beautiful.

Also, I'd love to see more of chris23's CD collection.
No problem. Also, the rest of the Psychonavigation albums got posted soon after I made this topic.
