hey disco cubist,
first thing: the tracks you are mentioning were produced in different ways, using different hard- and software. in other words, creating an atmosphere as you call it, doesn't appear to be exclusive to a certain method of working.
the playtime album is made using mainly real hardware and (accoustic) instruments. lush summer rain still goes back to the pre ableton live era when i was experimenting with max/msp namely the jhno looper and some awesome shared patches by twerk. aspiration 2010 is pretty much all done in ableton using vstis. no rocket science, whatsoever.
all examples are using at least a minumum of "moved air" aka microphone / field recordings or samples.
these will certainly help to give a more spacious or atmospheric feel to the tracks. everything else must be down to way how i bake them in a non dogmatic, non standardized but personal way...
