Let’s get to know more of New Age music!

New Age Music can be divided into two types;
Electronic forms: tends to rely on synth pads or long sequencer-based runs. using those technologies.
Acoustic Forms: using a wide variety of instruments such as; flutes, piano, acoustic guitar, and other acoustic instruments.

Here’s some instruments which are mainly used in this genre.

Synthesizer: Electronic synthesizers are an instrument which is a great deal for New Age arrangements. You guys might know that Kitaro started playing New Age music after he discovered the analog synthesizer (and he still like analog version more than a digital.) Synthesizers have the advantage of producing a more steady tone and provides an array of timbres , ranging from synthesized strings, voices and woodwinds to a number of original electronic sounds t create a soothing effect.

Woodwinds: This instruments provide a light timbre. Woodwinds instruments include orchestral instruments too, such as, the clarinet, flute, and oboe.
Woodwinds instruments are usually used as a solo instrument in a part of New Age music.

Guitars: As I mentioned on the beginning, the acoustic guitar lays down the foundation for New Age music charts. It’s often used as a replacement for synthesizers in Acoustic New Age music.

Drums: It sometimes appears in New Age music especially on a spiritual or ritual work. Drumming is a major component of many spiritual journeying practices.
It’s usually used as folk instruments with quiet and earthy sounds instead of louder, orchestral drums or drum sets.

    Thanks for sharing. Beautiful music.
    I would like to add that not every artist in New Age genre is related to New Age Movements. People like Yanni, loreena mckennitt, Rixa White and Enigma are not a part of New Age movement, but their music is categorized in New Age music. They are atheists or christians with no relation to New Age movement.
