I found House of Leaves very ambient for me. I was given it by a friend and
read while my wife was away for two months. Alone in a house in New
Hampshire during the winter can be very interesting. It inspired me to work
on a soundtrack oriented concept album. I hope this is not considered
self-promotional here (as I understand the rules of the group), but here is
the link to the work that House of Leaves inspired. It is a free download.
Quote from the description " Around the same time I read House of Leaves by
Mark Z. Danielewski. I'd like to say that that excellent book influenced
this project. It did and it did not. I felt that the soundtrack to such a
house in the book would be single sounds, placed in an audio field of dead
silence, with not even reverberations of the space that one was in."
