The WORLD MUSIC (GLOBAL MUSIC) is based on the concept of creating new forms of music mixing folk music from different countries.
For example, by fusing elements of traditional Japanese music with African percussive rhythms and melodies medieval Europe, the result is a new music, different. This genre was born in the late 60's, driven by the cultural encounter between East and West that began at that time. The World Music has always had a distinctly pacifist, cosmopolitan, symbolizing his artistic personality need to abolish the borders between peoples of the world. Artists like Paul Winter and Peter Michael Hamel, among others, were pioneers of New Age género.El term came into use in the late 70's to identify a way of life more or less derived from the hippie culture, and also to define several of these new styles of music, considered related to that philosophy. Artists like Kitaro were immediately classified under that label, making it visible heads. However, it has finished being used in many countries as megaetiqueta for virtually all new or unusual styles, with the exception of the most linked to Techno and pop sector singer. The more clearly identified with the New Age, there are some trends without being clearly separate musical styles, they do show own personalities, philosophies quite connected with the culture of the same name:THE ecological trends. An important element of New Age lifestyle is the love of nature and support for ecosystem protection. The musical reflection of such a thing is obvious in the artists incorporated sound recordings of birds, waterfalls, treetops swaying in the wind, and others of the same class. His music is in keeping with this support, resulting peaceful, romantic, almost paradise. Sometimes even the publication of these discs is an act of vindication for the protection of living species in danger of extinction, or supporting other similar initiatives. This trend emerged in the early 70's. Musicians such as George Deuter have become emblems of it, emerged in the eighties labels such as Coda, Windham Hill or Narada commercializing this kind of trend to extremes even selling (George Winston, David Lanz, David Arkestone, Paul Speer, Michael Hedges, Nightnoise, Patrick O'Hearn ...), and reaching the audience of the general public.The mystical tendencies. A section of the New Age culture is linked to mystical matters, from those influenced by Eastern philosophies, to others that existed independently of the New Age but in recent years tend to be grouped under that label. This aspect tends to be reflected in the form of music recordings to accompany rituals, the result of spiritual experiences, or just the parts with titles inspired by these issues. This trend appeared in the late 60's. Artists like Paul Horn and Popol Vuh, among others, are clear examples of it, at the end of the 70 artists as Kitaro, Vangelis, Himekami ... be enhanced more if this trend.MUSIC FOR RELAXATION, MEDITATION AND THERAPY. Some of the music released under the label New Age is not intended to entertain the public main, but rather release their medicinal effects positive mental health. The stress of daily life difficult for many people relax after a day full of tensions. Listen to music specially designed to relax can be the ideal way to get rid of a pernicious nervousness. Other applications can be prone to induce states of mind to creativity or meditate with enough concentration on complex issues. Have also been recorded for therapies used to support mental hospitals. This musical concept was implemented in the late 60's. Its main supporters include Steven Halpern and the record company New World.INSTRUMENTAL MUSIC melodic. As an alternative to the music sung and conventional instrumental genre, a growing number of artists make music that has been described as classical music THIS, on the grounds that classical music has more in commonwith than the promoted officers reportedly continued academia. New Music Instrumental Melodic may have. Pop and Jazz also features in those trends away from Classical Music and closer to modern music. Among the stars New Music Instrumental Melodic, include Suzanne Ciani, Yanni,Ray Lynch, Bill Douglas, Rick Wakeman, Andreas Vollenweider, Mark Isham,David Arkenstone, David Lanz and Paul Voudouris, among many others. The SECTORJAZZ most innovative influences also exchanged with art styles
Some currents with far fewer followers than mentioned so far are however many more years there. This is not artistic trends with real social significance, but rather address experimentation maintained by a minority of musicians and researchers. Contemporary Music is characterized by unusual and innovative buildings, made from fine acoustic instruments. Linked to it is electroacoustic music, which pursues the same end, but expanding its scope to the joint activity of acoustic and electronic instruments. Concrete music, born in France, experiment with sounds. The TAPE MUSIC specializes in sound processing and construction of musical structures from the tape recording and subsequent manipulation. These currents began to take shape largely in the late 40's. Musicians such as John Cage were doing such an important pioneering work.Minimalist music. This is a genre emerged from the set of experimental directions mentioned in the previous paragraph. Unlike other schools, it has been a notable success with audiences, becoming a style with a clear social impact. Minimalist music is based on the repetition of sequences of notes or basic elements, with slightly different nuances, so creating a hypnotic atmosphere. It is also known as repetitive music. Among its major supporters include Harold Budd, Steve Reich, Philip Glass, Michael Nyman and Wim Mertens.EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC. its obvious activity of searching for new musical forms, experimentation in search of sounds and compositional arrangements more or less audible and that is acceptable, synthesizers and new technologies have been the primary instruments, born in the 60's had its peak in 70 years, with the likes of Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Stockhausen, Brian Eno, Robert Fripp ... contributed significantly in studies of experimental music today.MUSIC ETNICA.El folkclore of a country is usually unknown, and therefore new, exotic, for listeners of other nations, this coupled with the constant evolution of other musics to listen and learn its rhythms and instruments has led to the opening of this consequence style in the Western world. That has been the case with Celtic music, perhaps the most percussive and also the most colorful of all folk music, but the African rhythms, Caribbean and finally Latinos and from places like India and Tibet, among other have become the ethnic music from the most respected and rich today.
