  • orchestral ambient music

    Has any one produced a contemporary full orchestra ambient music especially in the classical tradition if that is possible? Prefer an acoustic orchestra performance but a virtual orchestra recording would also be of interest.

    I have never looked into the purely classic orchestrated kind of ambient.

    Nils Frahm, A Winged Victory for the Sullen and Stars of the Lid kind of come close but no full orchestra, as best as I can tell.

    This is a Stars of the Lid performance:-



    And this is A Winged Victory for the Sullen followed by Nils Frahm at the BBC Proms in 2015:-

    I may not post anything useful, but at least I do it often

    Latest release - Anomaly available on Bandcamp

      Thanks for the videos.
      Stars of the Lid performance was almost there for me to like.

      A Winged Victory for the Sullen had seen this before. I liked this a bit more.

      I hope I get more suggestions.

          The "Ligeti: Atmosphères" is not it but in the right direction.

            Philip Glass did an orchestral version of an Aphex Twin track

              Liked it! but is this ambient music?
              In my opinion close but no it is not ambient.
              I would like to hear other opinions.

                it depends on your definitions - electronic/idm/ambient all role into one category for me. Aphex twin has some sweet ambient music and some insane techno thrash

                  Have you checked out Arvo Pärt?

                  His "Tabula Rasa" might fit the bill?

                  I guess his stuff is mostly considered "neo-classical" or some such, but if you ask me, this is where genres start to break down and bleed into each other. He has done a lot of choral work as well, inspired by medieval chants if memory serves.

                    Max Richter?
                    This isn't full orchestra but def orchestral and "ambient" i think

                    https://youtu.be/oNLDJp83YAQ

                    He also "reimagined" Vivaldi's Four Seasons:

                    Also I imagine that if you start looking into some film score music you might find things that cross that orchestral/ambient threshold--Hans Zimmer, etc.
