New age and electronic music

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.

'Beautiful' by Ryan Farish is pretty special. Listening to this album is like taking a tour through new age and electronic music. There’s some of Enigma’s arpeggio bells; a few chanting voices from Adiemus; some pleasant “whoosh” sounds from Jean Michelle Jarre; and them all topped off with some tastefully applied pan flute and simple Jim Brickman piano melodies. And yet, I think this is pretty special stuff. The compositions are nice and elegant; the melodies are simple but enriched by some intricate electronic noodling. It's really kind of intoxicating.
