I've been interested in ambient techno since the early 80's with eno, j-mj, tangerine dream, klaus shulze, robert shröder etc. and when Patashnik came out in '94 I got onto Biosphere and have followed him since. I tend to like the beatless long compositions that gradually evolve and transform. The ones that have this northern, arctic, clean and eerie feel to them. Like submerging into deep cold water crossing the north pole like captain Nemo in Nautilus.
