Earlier I had my ipod on random and I came across a song that reminded me a lot of the emotion playing eve.

A great way to improve immersion in a game is to improve the ambiance. Eve already has a large number of music in its jukebox but lets be honest it really does not cut it. I think it would be interesting to have some faster and slower tempo music but all of which has no lyrical content and adds to 'flow.'

Lets create a thread where people can suggest great atmospheric music to listen in the back ground to suit the pace of floating in EVE.

My first contribution is:
Treefingures – Radiohead – kid A
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKF-gVlt1hs

This song gives me the feeling of floating in WH space being completely cut off from the rest of the universe.

I prefer Lawrence Welk, toned down a bit.

If you like something with a bit of a beat Gas 0095 fits the spacey sci fi theme really well(high skies isn't bad either)

This site has a good list of stuff, just start youtubing till you find stuff you like

I often listen to the soundtrack to a different space game while polaying eve.

Independance War 2 OST is pretty good. It has a good "space" feeling to it.

I would certainly not agree that the Eve soundtrack just doesn't cut it (I love it), but I would agree that it could use twice as much awesomeness.

HAHa, how cool, a few times a year im movin with my computer to a friend nearby and we play eve together. The music question is always an imminent one Wink

Speak for yourself sonny, the ambient music in EVE is classy, retro electronica, reminiscent of such classics as Tangerine Dream, etc.

It's the "action" music in EVE that's fairly ****.

For extra ambient goodness I used to listen to Cryosleep and Blue Mars internet radio (zero beat electronica, vast, spacious and ultra-slow, perfectly suitable for an immortal pod pilot who has drifted far from humanity), but they seem to be down these days.

Oh yeah! The Freelancer ambient music is ridiculously great, especially in context, the first time you play the game.

My current EVE Soundtrack is the entire Desiderii Marginis discography. It fits the game unbelievably well.

I play EVE online with the Perpetuum Online Soundtrack in the background. Unlike EVE, this music won't put you to sleep and has a variety of tempo Ambiance electronica. The best part is that you can acquire the Soundtrack for FREE in their website.

Perpetuum Soundtrack

Enjoy

Max Corbacho's music, I find, is perfect for EVE Online. His work was also featured in another MMO you may have heard of before: Neocron.

Wow! This is outstanding. It would be great if we could get a new soundtrack for EVE in this style.

Holst's Planets Suite. If you haven't jumped into a battle with Mars: Bringer of War blaring in the background, you're missing out.

You guys desperately need better sound effects in this game as well.

Jean-Michel Jarre's stuff is very EVE-y, as well as some of Vangelis' music.

I've got all of his Eve tracks and I too fully endorse adding them to your jukebox.

Its been a bit since I've DJ'd seriously, but I did use to do a bit of downtempo and ambient music spinning along side psytrance... and still do, if the opportunity pops up.

As for EVEambient stuff, I have a few mixes that are along this vein if any of you are interested.

Dreamscape 02

Dreamscape 01

192kb mp3's and each around 2 hours long. Enjoy.

Confirming Alienhand is awesome. My list typically is full of post-rock, like God is an Astronaut, Jónsi/Sigur Rós, Mike Oldfield, and lately a friend has been getting me into Ólafur Arnalds.

All great music posted here. But I have to say that I really like the EvE tunes. Wish there were a lot more of them ...
