about New Age Music  新世纪音乐浅谈          < English >


     新世纪音乐,
     是哲学心灵的人文飨宴,
     是返璞于大自然的渴望,
     是摹拟生命跃动的节奏,
     是理性情绪深处的吶喊。


对神秘的东方而言,
儒家的「文人音乐」就是新世纪音乐的滥觞。

新世纪音乐其实一点也不新,它是人类返璞于传统的过程,缘自于东西方文化的深层交流,旧有的秩序逐一瓦解,科技的后遗症逐渐显现,人们诠释这以创新为主的自我救赎作品为「新世纪音乐」。


新世纪音乐缘起于「价值混乱」、「环境破坏」的二十世纪末,当人类意识到个人思维的沦丧贫乏,与世界的集体毁灭隐忧下,参酌内心生命的韵律节奏,以新视野、新精神、新乐器来诠释新世代的冥想心灵。
 

New Age Music 虽是外来的音乐新潮流,传统的东方却不陌生,然而西方人在从外界的观察思考,逐渐转向人生的实际层面,付予自我生命的关怀,推己及人的拥抱大自然,虽然恨晚,希望对于世间育教于乐,导正世俗美的形而上价值概念。


新世纪音乐在于自由心灵的伸展,毫无限制的奔放,因此,倾向于个人感触和情绪的抒发,是以,可独立作曲演奏且易表现神秘深邃、飘渺天际的电子类合成乐器遂为新世纪名家所共同钟情。
 

另外,掘起于环境保护与大自然的新型态曲风,常以虫鸣鸟叫、风唳林啸的自然界声音,来寓情于音乐底盘深处,此外,传统型的东西方乐器也多所利用,如:钢琴、吉他、小提琴、萨克斯风、双簧管、英国管、长笛、排箫、手风琴、锣鼓、钟磬甚至各原始民族的战鼓类乐器等。

当曲风与乐器的运用渐渐僵化定型,叛逆的人杰必不甘堕落心志,偶有的个性挥洒,进入了浪漫主义的年代,然而,新世纪与浪漫主义究竟有何不同?无论历史的巨轮从何处算起,文明与音乐皆是人心的反照,如果巴洛克时期是近代音乐的缘起的话,文艺复兴后的古典浪潮就是集其大成的主文了,直到浪漫主义的承接,新世纪音乐的果实已然成形,从此观点视之,我们是幸运的年代。



东方民族音乐的摹仿也是晚近趋势之一,缘由东西方真正的文化深层交流与理解,想象希腊史诗般的幽灵、古印度的灵智巧思、东方古国的神秘氛围。宗教的圣诗礼赞与乐曲亦充满了各民族合而不同的异教风味,在后现代实证实用主义的哲学思潮影响下,一种专研人类冥想的神秘领域,已渐成熟,往日冥思的四阶段,原来可以辅予音乐来进行,且心灵精神的音乐脉动也逐渐为人所阐发,坊间各种心理疗程与音乐SPA也为人所接受。



千僖年的文化音乐,内化诗意在器乐与人声上,因此,新世纪音乐通常让人感觉节奏和旋律的似有若无,随兴的创作,交替的多元脉动,有时平铺直叙的描写,有时不断反复同样的片段,淋漓尽致的高潮迭起展现结构的慎密与层次,塑造时空的临界感与出世的清新意境,这种时代的必然产物,如果以古典三要素衡量,是极其放浪不羁的,对于中产阶级为主的现代,异化的音乐也能成为新世纪主流之一。



目前新世纪音乐种类不断扩增,许多属于传统领域的范围,也随市场氛围的变迁,与放浪不羁的叛逆型作家连成一线,而有极其丰富的广义分类,例如:

运用现代科技综合型的电子合成乐器的「
电子新世纪 (Electronic - New Age)」。

针对各种精神缓和并予以治疗的「
心灵音乐 (Healing Music - for Mind, Soul & Body)」。

以大自然鸟兽虫鸣与生命同其脉动的「
大自然音乐 (Relax with Nature)」。

使喧嚣的城市心灵得以呼吸洁净灵魂的绿色「
环境氛围音乐 (Ambient Music)」。

混合东方乐器表达各民族内在特色情感的「
民族融合音乐 (Fusion)
 -- (其中包含王子的最爱 - Native American 美洲原住民及 Andes 安地斯系列)。

着重于个人灵动心境寄情乐器展现的「
器乐独奏 (Instrumental)」。

结合传统古典风味以现代思想诠释的「
新古典音乐 (Neo-Classical)」。

帮助进入冥想状态并导引至非想境界的「
冥想音乐 (Meditation)」。

模拟星际间流浪者与天人合一的「
天际音乐 (Space Music)」。

为创新而创新走在流行尖端的叛逆型「
前卫音乐 (Progressive Rock)」。

以人声表现与内向情抒使肾上腺激情亢奋的「
新世纪 美声 (New Age Vocal)」....等等。


新世纪音乐提倡个人空灵高妙,专属个人风格与乐器,是绝对个人的艺术作品,直接发纾个人情怀,使用的方法与媒介物完全无界定与限制,因此,相对于古典与流行是独树一格的,它们不结党成派,没有中心思想与型塑的主张,是种完全个人意识与潜意识沟通的桥梁,展现于外的是不见容于限制的空灵绝妙,极度挥洒生命底深处的浪漫情怀,这群战后人杰,所灵动展现的音乐,可称之为划时代无限音乐曲风。


当人类开始自我省思,无论在生命的体悟与环境的天人合谐,随着思维领域的扩展,认识的深刻探索,中产阶级的文人音乐,只会更进一步深层理解与多变,古典后的浪漫乐潮,正在影响着我们。

about New Age Music

(From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)                                 
> TOP <

 

 
   

New Age music is music of various styles intended to create artistic inspiration, relaxation, and optimism. It is used by listeners for yoga, massage, meditation, and reading as a method of stress management or to create a peaceful atmosphere in their home or other environments, and is often associated with environmentalism and New Age spirituality.


The harmonies in New Age music are generally modal, consonant, or include a drone bass. The melodies are often repetitive, to create a hypnotic feeling, and sometimes recordings of nature sounds are used as an introduction to a track or throughout the piece. Pieces of up to thirty minutes are common.


New Age music includes both electronic forms, frequently relying on sustained synth pads or long sequencer-based runs, and acoustic forms, featuring instruments such as flutes, piano, acoustic guitar and a wide variety of non-western acoustic instruments.


Vocal arrangements were initially rare in New Age music but as it has evolved vocals have become more common, especially vocals featuring Native American, Sanskrit, or Tibetan influenced chants, or lyrics based on mythology such as Celtic legends or the realm of Faerie.


 

History

New Age music was influenced by a wide range of artists from a variety of genres, for example:

 Folk Instrumentalists artists: John Fahey and Leo Kottke,
 Classical Minimalists artists: Wim Mertens, Steve Reich, and Philip Glass,
 Synthesizer Performers artists: Pink Floyd and Brian Eno,
 Impressionistic Jazz artists: Keith Jarrett and Pat Metheny.

Many different styles and combinations of Electronic Experimental and Acoustic new age music was introduced in the 1970s including music from Asia, such as Kitaro and Yellow Magic Orchestra.


New age music was initially produced and sold only by independent labels. The sales reached significant numbers in unusual outlets such as bookstores, gift stores, health food stores and boutiques, as well as direct mail. In 1981,

Tower Records in Mountain View, California added a New Age bin. By 1985, independent and chain record retail stores were adding sections for New Age music and major labels began showing interest in the genre, both through acquisition of some existing new age labels such as Paul Winter's Living Music and through signing of new age artists such as Kitaro and jazz crossover artist Pat Metheny, both signed by Geffen.


On Valentine's Day in 1987, the former Los Angeles rock radio station KMET changed to a full-time New Age music format with new call letters KTWV, branded as The Wave. During The Wave's new age music period, management told the station employees to refer to The Wave as a "mood service" rather than a "radio station".

DJs stopped announcing the titles of the songs, and instead, to maintain an uninterrupted mood, listeners could call a 1-800 phone number to find out what song was playing. News breaks were also re-branded and referred to as "wave breaks".
 

KLRS (Colours) in Santa Cruz began a new age format around the same time.
 

Stations in other cities followed this lead and in 1988, Stephen Hill's radio show Music From The Hearts of Space was picked up by NPR for syndication to 230 affiliates nationally.

Other new age music specialty radio programs included Forest's Musical Starstreams and John Diliberto's Echoes.

Most major cable television networks have channels that play music without visuals, including channels for New Age music, such as the "Soundscapes" channel on Music Choice.

By 1989, there were over 150 small independent record labels releasing New Age music, new age music and adult alternative programs were carried on hundreds of commercial and college radio stations in the USA, and over 40 distributors were selling new age music through mail order catalogs.

 


New Age music is defined more by the effect or feeling it produces rather than the instruments used in its creation; it may be electronic, acoustic, or a mixture of both.

New Age artists range from solo or ensemble performances using classical music instruments ranging from the piano, acoustic guitar, flute or harp to electronic musical instruments, or from Eastern instruments such as the sitar, tabla, and tamboura.


There is a significant overlap of sectors of New Age music, Ambient music, Classical music, Jazz, Electronica, World music, Chillout, Space music and others.

The two definitions typically associated with the New Age genre are:

New Age music with an Ambient sound that has the explicit purpose of aiding Meditation and Relaxation,

or aiding and enabling various alternative spiritual practices, such as:
 Alternative Healing, Yoga Practice, Guided Meditation, Chakra Auditing, and so on.

The proponents of this definition are almost always musicians who create their music expressly for these purposes.

Prominent artists who create New Age music expressly for Healing and / or Meditation include:
Paul Horn, Deuter, Steven Halpern, Dean Evenson, Lawrence Ball, and Karunesh.


Music which is found in the New Age section of the record store. This is largely a definition of practicality, given the breadth of music that is classified as "New Age" by retailers who are often less interested in finely-grained distinctions between musical styles than are fans of those styles.
 

Music which falls into this definition is usually music which cannot be easily classified into other, more common definitions, but often includes well-defined music such as Worldbeat and Flamenco Guitar. Musicians as varied as:

 George Winston,
 Vangelis,
 David Arkenstone,
 Paul Winter,
 Will Ackerman,
 Ray Lynch,
 Suzanne Ciani,
 Jim Brickman,
 Bradley Joseph,
 Deuter,
 Era,
 Enya,
 Jean-Michel Jarre,
 Enigma,
 Jean Ven Robert Hal,
 Kitaro,
 Sandeep Khurana,
 Yanni,
 Andreas Vollenweider,
 Mannheim Steamroller,
 Suzanne Doucet,
 Mike Oldfield,
 Peter Gabriel,
 Steve Roach,
 Constance Demby,
 Patrick O'Hearn,
 2002_(band),
 Singh Kaur ....etc.

those are typically classified as New Age, although they may have divergent styles.

It also includes expressly spiritual New Age music as a subset. There are retail outlets, that specify subcategories such as:
 Nature Sounds,
 Healing,
 Piano,
 Chants, and so on.

 Amazon includes also Celtic, Meditation, World-dance, and Relaxation,

 iTunes Store includes Nature, Environmental, Healing, and Travel,

 besides other subgenres. The German new-age site Silenzio lists almost 70 subgenres.
