Pitchfork just turned me onto this duo called Wume, it's pretty great. They were their influences on their sleeve -- basically a mix of Can and Terry Riley -- but it makes for good listening. This is one of the lesser tracks, but it's only one I could find on youtube. Worth checking out the whole record if you're into this one at all.

If you're new to minimalist music, Reich's Music For 18 Musicians is sort of ground zero. He also pioneered a process called "phasing," in which different parts are played at slightly different tempos, so that they eventually fall in and out of sync with each other, creating some eerie juxtapositions.

I can't decide if the "future primitive" musicians should be in this thread, or should they get their own? John Fahey, Cul de Sac, etc...

Neely did a cool demonstration of this

Good question, as certainly some music could fit comfortably in either. I'd say that there's more melodic movement in minimalism, and a more pronounced focus on rhythm, while true ambient stuff (not just, like, "It's got some synths and the kick drum is quiet") tends to meander without any repeating motifs.

His Ambient 2 collaboration with Eno is one of my favorites.

I find it very hard to talk about this kind of music. It hits me in an abstract, almost synesthetic way. It's a genre I know little about, so thanks for this thread.
