The artists in this section are all of my favourites and have to a greater or lesser extent influenced Landschaft.
Zoviet France High priests of dronology - still going strong 20 plus years on. Nobody else can make monotony sound so interesting.
Section 25 Profound, zen, rhythm section
RammsteinGermany's answer to Metallica - better cos it's in German and you don't know what they are on about...
Roedelius A big Landscaft influence. Understated, homespun electonic wonderfulness. Check out Selbstportrait Vol II. In an absolute stroke of luck I found mint copies of "Cluster" (Philips, 1971) and Cluster II (Brain 1972) in a charity shop many years ago - both almost impossible to acquire now.
Moodyman Turntablist, sample jockey, obscurist. Class act.
A Certain Ratio Quirky and unpredictable before they got funky and learned to play their instruments.
The Durutti Column Early DC are very special to me - Vini fulfilled that rare achievement; music that is both dark and uplifting at the same time. Try viewing Stephen Soderbergh's re-make of Solaris listeneing to the Cliff Martinez soundtrack for a similar vibe - see review next link.
Cliff Martinez: Solaris A film I continue to watch again and again. Sacrilidge to say - but far outstrips Tarkovsky's original on every count.
Moby All round Diamond Geezer, and one of the best bloggists on the web.
Scanner Hugely prolific chin stroker. Essential listening for drone-ists, field and found sound recording junkies and obscurists. Does a lot of live performance modern dance soundscapes these days. An excellent free MP3 download area, plus a v. articulate blogist. Landschaft approves!
Steve Reich Grandpappy of ambient and modern experimental music
Cabaret Voltaire An early influence - I was at the "Pressure Company" gig in Sheffield; Solidarity support gig, where the live album was recorded.
Dark Winter is a small independent virtual label strictly dedicated to dark ambient music; home to some of my friends Formication's work. It has a very selective admission policy so whatever you find there is on-topic and of high quality, and the MP3s are available as free 192 mbps downloads under creative commons license terms. A nice tight site.
Skintone Susumu Yokota's own label
