Songs to go along with The Gate

I'm trying to digest and comprehend what's the sound that Björk is bringing with Utopia. And considering that the only reference we have so far is "The Gate" and a short flute piece, I put "The Gate" into a playlist in Spotify to see what else it recommended me. And I couldn't come up with much similar songs in style. In fact, it recommended me Lorde (wtf?). The only thing I found that could remotely "fit" was perhaps this record called "Echoes Of Silence" by Jane Winther.

Anyway, Discogs labels The Gate as "Experimental, Ambient, Vocal". Wiki as "Ambient, Electronica". What other songs do you think would go well with "The Gate" in a playlist?
Let's do an Utopia "Ubiquita", but musical. Please post music that you think will be similar to the sound that Björk will shape in Utopia.

somnium by robert rich - birdsongs and sleep theme
black rainbow by st vincent - flute instrumentation and utopic/daydreaming theme, also references to bird and paradise
Island of Woods by ryuichi sakamoto - "void" song with some birdsong that "deflorates" into a prism of synths
