Helios is also the moniker of a very "cloud-like" (ambient) composer named Keith Kenniff. His music is excellent for coding when you need that superior downtempo thinking background noise.

My favorite album: https://soundcloud.com/_type/sets/helios-eingya

His soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/keithkenniff

While we're discussing him, it's worth checking out another project of his, Goldmund. It's piano centric music that really embraces the minimalist aspects of some of the newer neo-classical artists (think Ólafur Arnalds, Max Richter, Nils Frahm or Dustin O'Halloran).

A lot of the music is on Spotify, and here's a link to a set of it on Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/keithkenniff/sets/goldmund

I had no idea Helios is also Goldmund. The sound is so different. I found them both on Spotify.

I thought the same thing when I saw this. Even if you haven't heard of Helios you've probably heard Keith's music on TV or online. The website for his film, tv, and ad work is http://www.unseen-music.com/

Just listened to this. If you like this kind of ambient music then I recommend you take a look at the works by Geotic.


Tried it, liked it, donated. Thanks! (also emailed him to tell him about a few broken links to his album downloads)
