An important contribution to ambient music came from the British collective Ora, that included Colin Potter, Darren Tate, and Andrew Chalk. Their droning music was quite humble: Approach to Zero (1993), Isle (1994), Orange Tales (1994), The Toper (1994), Rosea 1996), Distances (1999), New Movements In G (1999), peaking with the eight vivid rural landscapes of Amalgam (2000). Aureum (Streamline) and Final (ICR, 2001) are anthologies.

Colin Potter had started releasing cassettes in 1979. A Skeleton/ Cupboard Situation (Vinyl On Demand) collects work from 1979 to 1983. A Pressed On Sandwich (Nextera) a collaboration with Hafler Trio's Andrew McKenzie. See (Infraction, 2004) collects music from 1990. His first CD was And Then (2000). Confluence (2004) was a collaboration with Paul Bradley. The Sights Of The Drowned Fable (ICR, 2007) documents live performances.

APM (Chris Atkins, Colin Potter, Phil Mouldycliff) released Sprint Mill (ICR, 2008).

Potter also played with Nurse With Wound.

The double-disc The Simple Plan (ICR, 2010) documents a live collaboration between Colin Potter and Paul Bradley on electronics and guitars, notably the 18-minute "raga" Gloaming.

Monos (Darren Tate and Colin Potter) returned with the two lengthy pieces of Above The Sky (ICR, 2010) that document live performances of 2006.

Grey Skies On Asphalt (Beta-Lactam Ring, 2010) was another collaboration between Colin Potter and Phil Mouldycliff that explored the ordinary world.

The four-disc box-set Ancient History (Ultra-Mail Productions, 2012) collects material from 1979-1989, specifically the cassettes Two Nights (1981), containing two side-long cosmic disco suites, A Gain (ICR, 1982), and the compilation Recent History Volumes 1 & 2).

Il collettivo britannico Ora, che comprendeva Colin Potter, Darren Tate, e Andrew Chalk, diede un contributo rilevante alla musica ambient. La loro drone-music era abbastanza umile: Approach To Zero (1993), Isle (1994), Orange Tales, (1994), The Toper (1994), Rosea (1996), Distances (1999), New Movements In G (1999), mentre svettano gli otto paesaggi sonori vividi e rurali di Amalgam (2000). Aureum (Streamline) e Final (ICR, 2001) sono antologie.

Colin Potter iniziò a pubblicare cassette nel 1979. A Skeleton/Cupboard Situation (Vynil On Demand) raccoglie lavori risalenti fra il 1979 e il 1983. A Pressed On Sandwich (Nextera) era una collaborazione con Andrew McKenzie degli Hafler Trio. See (Infraction, 2004) raccoglie musica risalente al 1990. Il suo primo CD fu And Then (2000). Confluence (2004) era una collaborazione con Paul Bradley. The Sights Of The Drowned Fable (ICR, 2007) documenta alcune esibizioni dal vivo.

APM (Chris Atkins, Colin Potter, Phil Mouldclyff) pubblicarono Sprint Mill (ICR, 2008).

Potter suonò anche nei Nurse With Wound.

Il doppio The Simple Plan (ICR, 2010) documenta una collaborazione dal vivo tra Colin Potter e Paul Bradley, rispettivamente all'elettronica e alla chitarra; notevoli sono i diciotto minuti "raga" di Gloaming.

I Monos (Darren Tate e Colin Potter) ritornavano con le due lunghe tracce di Above The Sky (ICR, 2010), che documentano esibizioni dal vivo del 2006.

Grey Skies On Asphalt (Beta-Lactam Ring, 2010) era un'altra collaborazione tra Colin Potter e Phil Mouldycliff che esplorava la vita ordinaria.

Il quadruplo Ancient History (Ultra-Mail Productions, 2012) raccoglie materiale risalente fra il 1979 e il 1989, specificamente le cassette Two Nights (1981) contenente due lunghissime disco-suite cosmiche, A Gain (ICR, 1982), e la raccolta Recent History Volumes 1 & 2.
