It took that long for someone to mention air; that's surprising too.

Yeah, I found that odd too...
 They are great though and I hope Barcelona will check them out.

David Bowie's Low album has always been a favorite of mine.
 
 Also Roxy Music, you can't go wrong with Eno.

Another great compilation album worth looking into is the soundtrack from that Moog documentary. It contains some great selections from the album leaf to tortoise to stereolab just to name a few.
 
 
 The movie is pretty awesome too.

 BT (though he's huge in europe)
 Deep Dish (again, huge in Europe)
 Thievery Corporation (they are very very varied in their stylings)
 Thunderball (on ESL's label, which Thievery Corp owns)

Nice! Someone showing some crack-love!  :)
 
 Along the lines of Kraftwerk with pioneering sounds with live instruments, I'd highly recommend Einst├╝rzende Neubaten.
 
 For some Enigma-type stuff but with flamanco guitars, you should check out B-Tribe. (Barcelona Tribe)
 
 Also, we use guitars and synths, but probably way too dance or heavy for what you're looking for  :)

So what the hey does 'electronic' mean anyway? Billboard has an 'electronic album' chart and have stuff like Gnarls and Madonna on it. Huh? In the 1960s, 'electronic music' meant you played a regular instrument but the signal was manipulated through a Moog or tape loops or whatever. Now you can totally create music *electronically* in a program like Sony Acid or Adobe Audition and not use any real instruments, but manipulate the tone so that it sounds exactly like real acoustic playing. So is the label 'electronic' about how the music sounds, or is it about how it's made?

That's the difference between techno & electronic.  Computerized filtering isn't neccessarily a requirement for electronic music.

Personally I would say start with
 
 1. Throbbing Gristle (and you could add a dash of the earlier Coil albums).

 Anyway, the other day listening to the "indie" radio station in last.fm I ran into Broken Social Scene's "Alive in 85" and really liked it.
 
 Can anyone give me any suggestion on similar music?
