This is also a great album from 2005:Hotel: Ambient by MobyHotel was a 2-disc CD album; the first CD was normal songs, but Ambient was the 2nd CD. No words, just calm background music.www.youtube.com/watchBrian Eno is the originator of ambient music.One of his most famous works is "An Ascent" which was used in an Apollo 11 documentary. Here is a 1-hour version:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zWsTPNMYiuU
I don't think this is considered ambient, but this song, "Love on a Real Train", is a famous instrumental piece from Tangerine Dream made for the movie "Risky Business".https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZRSNy8DcIDkInstrumental artists like Tangerine Dream can be very good for studying - put on songs like this on lower volume and they help time fly while studying or working.
