Techno is techo in its many forms ! Ambient is what I'd describe as music for
listehning to at home and techno is club music (of a perticular kind of course).

Its not heresy at all as we're trying to comprehend the idea of making records,
and stitching them togethere. I think its a facsinating concept.

Add Blu Peter's new album "Widescreen and Digital" to your list of ambient

he knows this himself yet !

(BTW highly recommended album) See www.blupeter.com for more info.
