NEW AGE MUSIC CONCERTS: Tour, Schedule, Tickets and more...
New age music is a genre associated with tranquility, relaxation and calm. You hear it in spas. You hear it in yoga studios. You hear it in meditation centers. You hear it in obscure bookshops. You hear it in futuristic movies. You hear it in wellness centers. Places where ambiance is essential to an experience, some form of new age music is probably present, humming in the background...
Although new age is having a sort of revival and growing in popularity, not many people consider attending concerts from this genre. A totally different feel than most other concerts—such as rock, pop, hip-hop and country—it is widely considered a musical and spiritual experience. To learn more about new age music and listening opportunities, read below.
New age music is about harmony, both musically and emotively. Artists create repetitive, harmonious, melodic sounds in major keys. Instead of priding itself on moments of tension, layers of peaceful, cohesive instruments, vocals and effects overlap, creating what many listeners call therapeutic and transcendent. Bright, responsive instruments, such as piano, hard, bells, flute, and strings reverberate together. In this genre, instrumentals shine, taking precedent over voice or lyrics.
Styles and sub-genres include: ambient, contemporary instrumental, environmental, ethnic fusion, space, spiritual, techno-tribal, relaxation, self-help, solo instrumental, progressive alternative, progressive electronic, tone poems, neo-classical, mystical, and healing.
Many have wondered why new age music is making a comeback in music media. Afterall, some still associate it with hippies and psychedelic moods, dated to the 70s. The emerging trend may have to do with the chord structures of genres. In most genres, minor chords and dissonance are what drive the music, creating tension, piecing together a plot or arch in a song or album. The Smithsonian Magazine reports that dissonance doesn’t “feel right” to listeners, and if used in excess, it creates clashing, discomforting, non-musical sounds. Maybe new age is on to something, pushing music in the opposite direction, opting for a collection of pleasing, consonant, mellow tones that seamlessly melt together. In a world that seems increasingly stressful, anxious and chaotic, new age music is a reprieve, and the self-care activities associated with it are becoming more and more necessary for many people to live happy, productive, fulfilling lives.
If you are interested in experiencing this re-emerging genre, listen to some albums and immerse in live shows. New age music is known for its instrumental qualities, something best heard in person, where the subtle differences in instruments unfold and performers’ energy is on display.
