I tend to be a bit of a night owl, which results in me doing a lot of writing & hacking into the wee hours of the morning. The silence of the night can be a bit piercing, so I’m always on the hunt for good ambient music to set the mood. I recently happened across Chihei Hatakeyama’s norma and it’s really been hitting the spot.
Long sustaining notes and noise (run through so many effects it’s now just blended tones) help to capture that “I’m floating in space hacking the mainframe” sort of feel.
