i'm not tech guru but if you're on an intranet they can log anything your computer does. i'm positive ours can. Luckily they're a lot looser with restrictions than most places. It doesn't depend on anything--even if they can't tell what sites you're visiting, the act of circumventing IT policies is punishable by termination. Not automatic, but if they feel like it it's a good way to rid themselves of someone they want to fire.

There's an...erm...preview of the new Sigur Rós album floating around...

It's super, duper ambient. Like even by their standards. I'm a fan of theirs, but it might be just a little too much for my tastes.

It's hard to compare because they're such vastly different genres, but I'd say it's pretty dang close.

This is true, but it really depends on a lot of things.

It depends on if they bought the quality equipment or the discount stuff. If they've got top of the line intelligent switches and the appropriate software on their computers, they can log every keystroke, mouse click, and bit of data that you send over the network at all. Discount gear? No monitoring software? They wont see a damned thing.

But this is way off topic. All I did was as a question here.

What kind of music is that? Sounds interesting.

<3 ambient music, best Homework/study music. I need to see just how much more 'ambient' they got.
Helios - Eingya is probably my favorite ambient album. Soooo good.

Sigur Rós isn't really electronic music, though. I guess they're more post-rock with some indie influences, sort of?

I dunno, they're Icelandic. Just imagine what kind of music people from Iceland would make.

Here are two of their more accessible songs that are very upbeat by their standards:



And here's one that's maybe a bit more typical. It's from their completely-untitled album, which is in a made-up language (the liner notes were empty but you were encouraged to write/draw in what it means to you).

well you said ambient
that usually means samples, (relatively) slow BPM, and computers.

Thats why i was a little shocked by Sigur Ros turning that way.
Jonsi is like a Euro Beck only a little less high and with a little happier outlook on life in general.

That's one subset of Ambient. That's more 'chillout' than ambient as a whole, but using ambient as a genre has been around since before the post-trip idea of ambient music, Brian Eno coined the term (many say) in the 70s.
As Eno says "Ambient Music is intended to induce calm and a space to think." Eno again, on ambient music "[it can be] actively listened to with attention or as easily ignored, depending on the choice of the listener"
Slow BPM is pretty much a must, but everything else can vary incredibly.

Just bustin' balls here.

Also never get in an argument with someone if a band/song is Post-Rock or ambient.
It will be one of the most pedantic arguments you'll ever have, if your life is good to you.

nooope. i rarely even try to get into nitpicky detailed arguments of any kind concerning music as there are people who take it far more seriously than I do. especially with electronic music as a whole--deep house, techno, acid house, drum and bass blah blah blah. I like what i like, and i'm fine with generic umbrella labels.

I somehow got dragged into it, halfway through i had a "oh my god what am I doing with my life?" moment.

Yeah I'm not getting fired over trying to listen to music online.

I can use my phone if I need to listen to music. Don't do it often, but it's nice to put on the headphones and cruise when doing data entry.

Otherwise I'm ALT+TAB'ing between this and whatever else I'm working on (if I have anything to work on, which I usually don't) and then get nothing done.

When I think ambient, I think Brian Eno, Ambient 4: On Land.

Stars of the Lid is pretty awesome too.

One of Ice Cube's best songs ever. Got his chance to say "I told you so" to his critics after the LA Riots, which he had warned would happen.

Can't go wrong with old-school Ice Cube although it's saddens me every time a Coors Light ad comes up before a song.
