Goodbye New Age

By Robert Phoenix, Contributor

I recently read a piece online that deconstructed author Marilyn Ferguson's Aquarian Conspiracy, a seminal work charting and celebrating the integration of New Age culture into mainstream culture. The author, however, was not kind to Ferguson, nor to the movement in general. He saw it as latter-day manifestation of ideas put forth by HG Wells and his "Fabian Socialists." It was his contention that "The Aquarian Conspiracy" was just that. I found some of the ideas… more »

The New Sounds Of The Solstice

By Robert Phoenix, Contributor

On December 20th of every year, something magical takes place in the heavens. The northern hemisphere is at its furthest point from the sun and the longest night ensues. It's the Winter Solstice, a time of sleeping and dreaming, a night before the light returns in incremental fractions and degrees. It goes by many other names throughout the various cultures and traditions of the world including, "Yalda," "Saturnalia (named after Saturn, the ruling planet of… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Windham Hill continues its 25th year celebration as a forerunner in new age music with this beautiful 15-track compilation by one of their most consistent and loyal solo pianists. Though she’s always been categorized as new age, Story’s songs always incorporate a rich array of influences, from classical to jazz, even as they often calm into a meditative state. There’s rich whimsy to “Bradley’s Tune” (from Solid Colors), a mystical blues flavor to “Reconciliation” (from Part of Fortune), and a gossamer high-register elegance to the image-laden “Wedding Rain.” Many of her best songs seem to make themselves up as they go along, forging improvisational paths, but others, like “Church of Trees” (from Escape of the Circus Ponies), take a more relaxed middle ground. While she can communicate every emotion with just her touch on the piano, she also knows how to use outside instrumentation when the emotional call is there; witness the mournful cello within the optimistic piano melody of “Ana” and the jazz duo effect created by the rhythm of Joel Di Bartolo’s bass on “My Foolish Heart” and “M Romance” (from her standards album My Foolish Heart). The somber closer “For Mark, Unwound” is a track dedicated to her late friend Mark Paul Duke. Long before David Lanz and Jim Brickman were ruling the genre piano roost, Story was writing tremendous chapters of new age history. An essential collection. – Jonathan Widran
