    Hi
    I have been a fan of Jean-Michel Jarre and Vangelis Sometimes I remeber theses years and try to make some music in the same style.
    I am not sure it can be called new age, but may be you will like it.

    Hi musicalis,

    When I clicked on the link for Cathedral I got the message: La page...n'est pas accessible.

    Cheers,

    New Age Music

    I think Constance Demby is excellent, as is Robert Rich and Terry Riley. They have a good following of fans. I think the music is very sensorical to my ears. I made that word up by the way. I have experienced alot of sensory pleasure from these artists. It goes beyond listening.

So my question is: where is new age music today? who are the potentially great new artists that will lead the new age genre in the years to come and where is the genre itself going? Will the great days ever come back? can they? and should they...?

    A lot of questions... but I'd like to hear some opinions (and information) on this subject.
    Ah Fred, the life of musical styles is fleeting. They waft and whither on blamy breezes, coming in and out of focus restlessly. Such is the fate of New Age music. I guess.

    Every day is new age music, another day aged and another new music found. Music does not fade or waft away, only people do.

    Hello RADM CT64,

    Bravo dear sir for your retort - you so presciently assessed New Age Music for what it is: "It wafts and withers on balmy breezes, coming in and out of focus restlessly".

    What a profound statement!!! I'm keeping it as a memento. If one compares New Age Music and the music of JSBach, New Age would be like the grass that shoots up in the Spring and grows tall but then turning brown and wilting away whilst the music of JSBach is like a tall and mighty mountain that is impervious to the elements and stands as a beacon for millenia and ages unto ages. While the West gives up on its cultural patrimony ergo, the music of JSBach and other great composers, the Asians are lapping it up like mother's milk.

    Cheers,

    VADM Corno Dolce

    I personally find new age music total crap, but didn't want to be overtly blunt, hence my use of metaphor...

    You guys, if you want to hear some good new age. Listen to some of
    our native american chants with the sound of nature in the background.

    I used to listen to quite a bit of Jarre and now I view him as an exponent of "Synth Pop". New Age, for me, is George Winston and Enya. Man, this thread is a blast from the past - Honestly, I don't know where its going, if anywhere........Maybe its because of my passion for hard-drive post-bop modal harmony a la McCoy Tyner.......
