Feldman sounds nothing like Riley at all. Where Riley is mystical, trancey, harmonious, melodious, raga-like and surprising, Coptic Light by Feldman is chaotic.

Yeah, totally different beasts in my mind. That Feldman piece has way more to do with Varese and Cage than he does with Riley.

I like that piece, but it doesn't affect me like Riley's best works do (I really like him up through the 80s)

Actually, Riley has much more in common with Mother Mallard's Portable Masterpiece Company (or is it the other way around?), who were incidentally one of the first bands to perform live with Moog equipment:

What is electronic music?

Is it music enabled by electronics or dependant on electronics?

I've never heard recorded music that wasn't electronic, and in that broad church King Tubby rules.

He invented the remix, the producer as artist and the mixing desk as an instrument.

Osbourne Ruddock rules.

Jarre's Souvenir of China was part of a popular early 80s soap opera soundtrack, and it worked its way to become the theme of my sister's 3rd birthday party professional film tape, in 1987. Then my father bought the LP, Concerts in China. Thus began my relation with electronic music, but I would only be interested in classical symphonic music for a long time. Carl Orff's Carmina Burana was an early favourite, along with Beethoven's Fifth Symphony.

During the 1990s my favourite kind of music was game soundtracks and sound effects, such as those from Duck Tales, Doom 1 and 2, Megaman 4, Super Mario Bros. 3, Beneath a Steel Sky, Sam & Max, Little Big Adventure 1 and 2, Rise of the Triad, Quake II, Unreal Tournament and countless others.

Finally, in 1998, I found an underground site with a bunch of Jarre albums in mp3 - thus rediscovering Jarre. So Jarre with his symphonic tendencies, associated with my taste for traditional symphonies and the electronic music from games, are how it all began. Then I'd say the Concerts in China album is a milestone for me.

The turning point was a short while later in 1999 when I discovered Tangerine Dream and their 70s sequencer pieces, because since the early 90s (my early teens) I had a kind of tick that was to be, all the time, humming along repetitive minimalistic arpeggiated music - and I still do that today. Then I discovered that this music I had been making actually existed, which prompted me to try to become a proper musician.

Soon after I'd discover other repetitive musicians, reinforcing this foundation for my tastes and musical tendencies. Other a-ha moments were, in chronological order: Klaus Schulze, Beyond Recall (particularly the Gringo Nero first few minutes and the Brave Old Sequencer track); Philip Glass, Einstein on the Beach; Heldon, Stand By; Magma, Mekanik Destruktiw Kommandoh.

I would then go on to make the title suite of my debut album to reflect these early discoveries. The album was released in 2003 in CD.

Later, as I quickly expanded my musical tastes, my musical output would also drift away from the obvious Berlin influences, to less categorizable experimental musics.

Today, some of my favourites, besides those already mentioned, are: Mike Oldfield, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Trettioariga Kriget, Van der Graaf Generator, Gustav Mahler, Anglagard, Algarnas Tradgard, Cluster, Moebius, Roedelius, Schnitzler, Enya, Arvo Pärt, Motorhead, early Black Sabbath, Neu!, Faust, Can, Michael Rother, Harmonia, Steve Reich, Sonic Youth, Vangelis, Nine Inch Nails, Amon Duul 2, Circle, Kraftwerk, Glenn Branca, etc.

Jarre's Holy Trinity for me:
1. Oxygene
2. Equinoxe
3. Les Chants Magnétiques

A second series would be:
4. ZooLook
5. Rendez-Vous
6. Revolutions
7. Chronologie

Oxygene 7-13 is also very, very good in the vein of Oxygene and the first Holy Trinity.

As for Tangerine Dream, Exit and Logos Live are awesome.

Kraftwerk: The Man Machine, Computer World, Electric Cafe are great for me.

Interesting. I had also come to think of these 3 as a set (because the sound of the later albums was so different), but the title floating around in my head was "Original Trilogy" (borrowed from Star Wars of course). These ones are my next favourites after Rendezvous.

Did you collect these albums over a long time like me? I started with the Essential compilation when it came out (I would have been about 7!). This stuff changed my life and made me properly interested in music - enough to want to make my own...

Not at all, I got them all as they appeared: I first listened to Jarre's Oxygène on vinyl in the 70's at an uncle's place. A revelation, so I was hooked very young.

This one is old but I personally love Sasha's "Airdrawndagger". I think it's one of the best electronic music albums ever released. Released in 2002 I think, but it never gets old!
