This has been doing the rounds a bit recently, and I've just got round to downloading some of the files (they're really big - 50MB+, so fat 'net pipes are required), but the sound is incredible. As you'd expect, you get a huge wall of ambient sound that slowly shifts and moves around, but because the underlying structure is still the same organically balanced Beethoven thang, it retains a sense of movement that you don't get with Eno etc. And your focus is also shifted from the superficial progession of sound after sound in the creation of a classical-romantic melody, to the details of the sounds themselves (the first chord lasts at least 5 minutes here). Beethoven's sonic innovations are sometimes overlooked, but this treatment is something else!
