Not in a city it doesnt.
A city is nature too.
so what isnt nature, then?
Nothing...
Then its a redundant word, and your usage is utterly pointless.
Welcome to Nature. Things are pretty contradictory here.

Not really.

Good guys (like I very obviously am) learn how to deal with that properly, without taking it out on others"

Neighbours, the natural Enemy of anything Ambient.
The art of knowing is knowing what to ignore.

True.

There are many variations on what is called Ambient Music.

Some is washed in reverb, some is fairly dry.

Some is done with all synths, some is acoustic.

Some uses old school hardware synths, some digital synths and samples.

What I always found interesting was Enos classic recordings.

The use of synthesizers was often secondary to other instruments such as guitar, piano, bass, voice and sometimes classical instruments.

Ambient music can be produced a wide variety of ways, with any kind of instrument.

Good read, I like this quote:

".....Nevertheless, it has attained a certain degree of acclaim throughout the years, especially in the Internet age. Due to its relatively open style, ambient music often takes influences from many other genres, ranging from classical, avant-garde music, folk, jazz, and world music, amongst others..."
