Their first album is especially excellent

Loscil is one of my favorite ambient musicians

He used to play drums for Destroyer, they still occasionally do collaborations

and Eno is the ambient god, obviously

I don't think we can talk about ambient without including hearts of space. Their radio program played weekly and was my favorite for years on public radio. Thankfully, you can stream their stuff online with a free account or pay to dig into their deep archives.

I'm actually totally unfamiliar with that show, sounds great though

I think my friend's parent's Pure Moods cds were my first introduction to ambient music being a thing

"Muslimgauze was the moniker of Mancunian musician and producer Bryn Jones, whose famously prolific and short-lived career produced a discography of over 2000 tracks, around 100 albums and countless 7″, 12″ and DAT-only releases...Vehemently pro-Palestinian and endlessly fascinated by the Muslim world, there has always been an air of controversy surrounding Bryn Jones’s prolific and guardedly political output. Sparked by Israel’s conflict Lebanon in 1982, his interest in the politics of the Middle East became an obsession that confounded everyone he knew, including his own family."

Gas (Wolgang Voigt) is a German ambient-electronic king:
www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyEI2mKGST0

The project was created as an expressive medium inspired by his experiences with taking LSD in the Königsforst, a German forest situated near his hometown of Cologne, for long periods in his youth. He has claimed that the intention of the project is to "bring the forest to the disco, or vice-versa"
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gas_(musician)

I saw him a couple years ago when he was touring to promote his latest album, it was an incredible show

This is a pretty good overview of most of the "big" ambient acts of the last like 15 years:

I think loscil would win for me, a lot of tough calls though

I think if you are putting that much effort into listening to ambient music you are doing it wrong. That shit is the antithesis of a competition

I think it's a cool idea. The leaderboard is left blank so it's more about picking a personal favorite.

I haven't heard of everyone on there but I know enough of them that I can tell it's a good list.

childhood, thanks for the recommendation of Loscil. I've got it playing quietly now as I work from home and it is exactly what I needed.
