    How Did You Discover Ambient?

    How did you discover Ambient?

    I was on a 3d modeling forum and some of the members were working on an online game called Eve Online. I visited the site and they had all of the game's music available for download.

    It's written by Jón Hallur.

    I listened to his music from the time I discovered it to now.

    I became interested in making Ambient music the moment I heard Jón's music.

    Years ago, I lived in Arizona and I worked for a summer at a lodge in the middle of nowhere near Jackson Hole, Wyoming. Before I left for Wyoming, a friend had given me a copy of Aphex Twin Selected Ambient Works Volume 2.

    I lived in a dorm and I had a roommate. I went river rafting, rode trail horses, went on hikes, watched storms crawl through the mountains on their way toward us.

    I listened to Aphex Twin on headphones for hours a night while reading Anne Rice's The Witching Hour over a few months during my time there.

    Whenever I think about one, I always think about the other and where I was.

    After spinning wheels in my brain for a few minutes and getting nowhere, I concede to your puntasticness.

    It was the talk of all the Royal Courts of Europe when I returned from my voyages of the new sounds I'd found over the ocean while trying to find a shorter route for the spice trade. However, later, I realized the Vikings had found Ambient long before me. And if the rumors on Oak Island are to be believed - potentially the Knights Templar, Rosecrutians, Free Masons, The Locked Up Masons, Gandalf, Abraham Lincoln Time Travelling Detective, The Aztecs, Barbarella, Ford Prefect, No one expects the Spanish Inquisition, and Joey Ramone...

    ALL found Ambient before I did.

    Abraham Lincoln was not a time-travelling detective, he was the King of Mars who sacrificed his own immortality to bring Jake back from the dead.
