Steve Hauschildt is an electronic musician I discovered a couple of years ago, and this particular album is a frequent listen for me on headphones. I’ve got the vinyl of this as well.

Ambient 1 – Music for Airports, by Brian Eno, is an absolute classic ambient album. In fact, he coined the term “ambient” to describe his experimental and minimalistic approach to composition. With the album, Eno intended to induce calm and give people a space to think. He conceived this idea while spending several hours waiting at Cologne Bonn Airport in Germany in the mid-1970s and being annoyed by the uninspired sound atmosphere.
