The term new age covers a range of philosophies that recognize a core spirituality in all living things. Believers, and even hobbyists, practice reflective activities like meditation and yoga, seeking inspiration, personal growth, even mystical transformation. New age music complements that reflection by creating an ethereal, peaceful, enveloping world that blocks distracting or harsh noises. Artists make that enveloping world with recordings from nature, acoustic instruments with tranquil tones, electronic and computer-generated sounds, or a combination of these. The music has a pervading sense of calm and quiet yet feels somehow large. The vocals, or lack of vocals, in new age music often give it qualities of other genres, from world, to folk, to alternative. Shhhhhhh . . . let go.
