http://www.synth4ever.com – Alesis Andromeda A6 synthesizer demo — playing ambient electronica soundscape / chillout drone / space music using a custom sequencer pattern.
This performance starts out with a catchy repeating motif, followed by live improvisation ending with a nice sustained drone and live fadeout.
This music was created using 2 oscillators, filter and envelope adjustments, delay, LFOs, resonance and various other parameters on the Alesis A6 Andromeda synthesizer.
Performed live, no external processing. Excerpt from a longer session.

Excerpt from Wikipedia on ambient music:
As a genre, ambient focuses on creating a mood or atmosphere through synthesizers and timbral qualities. It often lacks the presence of any net composition, beat, or structured melody. Due to its relatively open style, ambient music often takes influences from many other genres, ranging from house, dub, industrial and new age, amongst several others. Since it is a relatively ambiguous term, ambient has no distinct characteristics, and its style can vary a great deal. In essence, it is a term to describe any form of electronic music which puts an emphasis on tone and atmosphere over traditional musical structure or rhythm. Ambient music is often highly conceptual and experimental in style, while it is said to evoke an “atmospheric”, “visual” or “unobtrusive” quality.
Excepts from Wikipedia on space music:
Space music, also called spacemusic, is an umbrella term, synonymous with a segment of New Age Music and Ambient Music. It has also been associated with preceding styles of relaxing music such as lounge music, easy-listening, and elevator music… space music can evoke a “continuum of spatial imagery and emotion,” which can be beneficial for introspection, and for developing, through a practice of deep listening, an awareness of the spatiality of sound phenomenon. This type of psychonautic listening can produce a subtle trance-like state in certain individuals which can in turn lead to sensations of flying, floating, cruising, gliding, or hovering… space music is used by some individuals for both background enhancement and foreground listening, often with headphones, to enable states of relaxation, contemplation, inspiration, and generally peaceful expansive moods; it may promote health through relaxation, atmospherics for bodywork therapies, and effectiveness of meditation. Space music appears in many film soundtracks and is commonly played in planetariums.
