Brian Eno - An Ending (Ascent)

Awesome ambient music, before ambient existed as a genre for anyone other than a few composers.

This is one of my favorite pieces of music. In New Orleans, where I grew up, the recently opened World War II museum uses this piece. At the end of the museum is a long, narrow, sad corridor devoted to the atomic bombs and their destruction at Hiroshima and Nagasaki. This music is softly playing in the corridor, and the effect, at least on me, was pretty sobering and sad.
