I also hope Soundscapes is becoming the new fashionable term as "ambient" has now lost its original meaning when Eno first conceived it.

"Ambient music" wasn't an original concept with Eno, either. He just followed through on the idea and made it famous, and in fact Eno credits Erik Satie as the inspiration for "Discreet Music."  Satie articulated the idea of what he termed "Furniture Music" (Musique d'ameublement) in 1920.
