Strange Music

I've been looking for a certain kind of music. I don't know what its called, so I'll try to describe it.

Its sounds like classical music. There are no lyrics. Its made with computers, not instruments.

If you know what Satriani sounds like, its like that but without the guitar.

It might be called Ambience maybe? I guess its a form of Techno or Electronica, but not as fast or beat driven like what you would associate with techno.

Basically what I need is something I don't have to concentrate on too hard, something that will get my heart beating but won't give me a headache. Something I can play while driving or working out.

Excuse the vagueness of this thread, but I know theres someone out there who will know what I am talking about...

download winamp, use the internet radio and find something you like. Then go to that radio stations website and it'll give you info on the artist so you can order it (usually through the station, if they dont give you a link). Theres tons of ambi and techno and instrumental and classical stuff on there. just pick it by category or browse.
