Cosmic Pastoral: William Tyler on New Age, Windham Hill, and Emerging Sounds : Aquarium Drunkard
"There has been in the last decade a true revivalism and reappraisal of new age music amongst a new generation of younger listeners, although what linked the meditative and expansive electronics of, say, Iasos or Steven Halpern to the rather unadorned acoustics of Ackerman and George Winston, was, I’d argue, less a sonic affiliation and more a connection born out of the need to market this music. Windham Hill helped popularize the term “new age,” taking it from its countercultural context to the mainstream. New age would come to mean almost any sounds that could count as meditative or even just “quiet.” Soon, there was a “new age” section at Tower Records and in 1987, a catch-all Grammy category. But while there is a clear continuum from psychedelic music and minimalist avant-garde modernism into a certain strain of what is now thought of as ‘OG new age’ —Halpern, Laaraji, Vangelis, or Constance Demby—the pristine and placid universe that Ackerman and co. carved out with Windham Hill still stands curiously on its own. It deserves its own reappraisal, but also perhaps deserves a recategorization...
In the meantime, I always encourage Fahey devotees to go back revisit the early work of Ackerman, Hedges, and De Grassi. Just because one group of artists sold millions of records and the other championed his own brand of joyful disruption, and at times toiled in obscurity, doesn’t mean that they weren’t and aren’t all united in a kind of strange outsider brotherhood. I like to think of all of this music being connected by something other than “new age” or even “heavy mental.” I think of it as “Cosmic Pastoral”, a global and ever-growing network of artists from different backgrounds, playing on different instruments, striving to paint portraits in sound without resorting to pop and rock tropes.
