I don't find Merzbow to be all this weird honestly. Sure he has lots of freaky stuff but most of his tracks are rather calming/relaxing imo though I can understand that most people would be puzzled at his music on their first listen, I had the same reaction.


yeah, i just meant (because he posted pink floyd and commented on santana, etc.) that for him, and most people, listening to noise is probably pretty weird.

If I want something to get my blood pumping, there's one of a couple songs I'll play (in the realm of instrumental music):




and then there's King Crimson's instrumentals:




And while we're on the track of King Crimson, anything involving Robert Fripp is involved to be some degree of amazing:



Gotta throw in some Oceansize too:

Quite possibly my favorite song ever. But aside from that, I really dig these as well:




If you've played DDR, you might recognize that last one. I actually have it on vinyl.

Didn't think that I could use this thread to purge some of my drum n' bass fondness. A classic track:-

Diablo, & Diablo II had really good atmospheric instrumentals.

Karl Sanders has some pretty far out instrumentals. Has a nice atmospheric, gloomy, middle eastern/Egyptian vibe to it. Actually this one technically has some voice but it's like a barely audible atmospheric awwhhaawwaa than actual singing.
It's has an extra 2:10 at the end because of the Sony police:

That is a well-known song, don't have to post.

Also, this was the only studio version of this song I could find:


Anyone who knows Flim & The BB's is automatically awesome in my book:

I couldn't find this one anywhere so I posted it.

Shit, almost forgot about this thread :x Wanted to post these before it completely slips out of my mind






I really like the one by El Ten Eleven. Just puts me in a relaxing mood and makes me forget about the day's worries; perfect song for watching a setting sun (or similar event) IMO

This is one of my favourite instrumental artists:












Despite the fact that I'm not hugely into classical sounding music, I love his stuff. He has a number of albums of his own compositions and also does a lot of cover versions and, as can be seen from the above, still does a lot of street busking despite having been a reasonably successful recording artist for many years now (including touring with New Model Army). Almost everything he does, he does with loops and fades thereby accompanying himself as he plays.

Wow, I haven't heard that in maybe 15 years or more. My mom would play that CD over and over in her car, and though I always put up the front that I thought it was stupid music, I actually really liked it. Good stuff indeed.

As for me, I got quite a lot of instrumental music I like too, with almost 90% chinese songs, Here are some chinese songs which I like most:













Besides chinese, there's also some songs from Metallica which I like. Unforgiven(Cchest3 map20 midi) and Fuel(Claus 1024 map07 midi)
