    DJ Krush - Song 1
    Homeworld Soundtrack - Garden View
    Homeworld Soundtrack - 17
    Final Fantasy X Soundtrack - Wandering Flame

    so yeah, finally something i'm an expert at.

    Check eno's ambient catalogue ... starting with ambient 1, 2, 3, and 4 are all very quiet and nice. music for films and the apollo ones are stellar as well

    Stars of the lid: highly, highly recommended

    tim hecker and boards of canada i will second as being amazing / transportational for ambient music. try to preview before you buy tho if possible.

    Other notable acts to check:
    Kawabata Makoto
    Lichens
    William Basinski (particularly his disintegration loops)
    Eluvium
    charlambides
    bardo pond
    Gas
    Growing (omg i love growing!)
    Jackie O' MF (MF is an explitive... great music though!)
    Max Richter
    Robert Fripp "let the power fall" album, among others
    experimental audio research
    sonic boom

    and my personal, all time favorite:
    VIBRACATHEDRAL ORCHESTRA

    Really the best thing to do is to find some podcasts for this type of music and then jot down the names. this website, http://myrecordcollection.org is a tremendously invaluable resource.

    Thanks to both of you! Boards of Canada sound really good, so I'll be getting some of that next.

    The song from the Babel Soundtrack was 'Only Love Can Conquer Hate' by Ryuichi Sakamoto.

    I have some more to add:

    Cinq - Spillover, Spleepy Eyes, and Dan (these are like sill water with drops, waterfalls, etc. Like what I have attached)
    Devil May Cry 2 Soundtrack - Mission Start (only the first 11 seconds)
    DJ Krush - Song 1
    DJ Sasha - Bloodlock, Requiem, Golden Arm, Wavy Gravy (or include the whole Airdrawndagger album if you like)
    ICO ~ Melody in The Mist - Heal
    ICO ~ Melody in The Mist - Continue
    ICO ~ Melody in The Mist - Collapse
    ICO ~ Melody in The Mist - -You Were There-
    Linkin Park - My December
    Resident Evil 4 Soundtrack - Serenity (this plays in some Merchant shops, sounds a little sorrowful)
    Resident Evil 4 Soundtrack - Save Theme (focus less on the leading piano them and more on the backround sounds, they are an example of EXACTLY what I'm looking for)


    I'll mention Garden View from the Homeworld soundtrack again, just because it's probably the most beautiful song I've heard. These ones are a bit off-course, as they have more movement, but they are pretty peaceful:

    Massive Attack - Weather Storm
    Massive Attack - Heat Miser (this reminds me of the Greyjacks from Resistance: Fall of Man, I guess because of the heat coming from them in this concept)
    Gorillaz - El Manana (kind of, it has that peacefulness)

    I'd also love to add DJ Krush's 'Pretense', but it doesn't exactly fit.

    No, it's not what I'm looking for. The SotC soundtrack is epic, I'm looking for the sort of stuff I listed in my first post. Nice avatar though. :)

    [edit] I just started listening to it, and man, that soundtrack is EPIC. Especially 'The Opened Way', in my opinion.

    DanielC - Wow. Nice collection. I love the Ochre ones.

    The most meditative music I've ever listened to:

    Robert Rich & Lisa Moscow - Yearning
    Texhnolyze OST 2 - The Man of Men (few songs)

    They give the feeling of sleeping in some peaceful oriental garden.

    oh.. and Solaris OST which has a bit different mood.

    Boards of Canada are good, also check out some of the Future sounds of London, Dead Cities and ISDN are pretty good. theres another album but i cant actually remember what its called right now. Just remembered its a group called Amorphous Androgynous. Also check out some of Clint Mansells work.

    Danke. I've heard FSoL's work for WipEout 2097, and I really, really like Landmass. 'We Have Explosive', though, is a harder sound (which I also like). The only thing I can remember of Papua New Guinea from Fusion is that I liked it, haha. I'll definitely look for their other work and all those artists you mentioned.

    Micaiah - Those do sound quite nice, and good. Cheers!

    Clint Mansell does a lot of movie and TV soundtracks im sure, theres one tune on the Fsol album where it feels like your just wandering through the jungle on the set of Predator as theres a couple of samples from the movie! Love it

    I just looked again at DanielC list and saw Aphex Twin - Selected Ambiant Works Vol. 1 & 2. I wouldn't call it peaceful music. Most of the songs are dark, disturbing and someties a bit psychodelic. For example Tassels.

    http://www.dizzler.com/music/Aphex_Twin/Tassels

    Of course it's not bad for certain moods but I doubt if it would make you relaxed .

    Farvus - I find that the album fits into this genre quite well.
    serhc - That video is powerful. I like the music as well, although it gets pretty noisy towards the end.

    Is there a name for this genre of music? There seems to be more of it than I thought.

    And I wonder, is there's anything out there that almost perfectly matches Wandering Flame and Garden View? The stuff you guys have been giving is great though.

    Yes. It's all ambient music. Search under that word and you will find lots of this kind of stuff.

    I listened to Wandering Flame and Garden View. Something similar would be maybe:

    Robert Rich - Inner Landscapes - there are samples under this link.

    EDIT: Oh. Look also for Steve Roach music.

    Farvus - I see. I did listen to Robert Rich, and he sounds pretty good. I'm downloading his album 'Rainforest'.

    Jabo - Thanks, I'll look for it.

    The entire Damnation album by Opeth. They're my favorite band. This music is very peaceful but the lyrics aren't entirely... happy.
    This album is VERY melodic but they're other albums are much heavier. Mikael Akerfeldt is one of the most talented vocalists I've ever heard. His growls are unique and impressive and his clean vocals are even better!
    This is there most popular mellow song:
