terrier New Age Piano? (22) RE: New Age Piano? 26 Jan 11


OK, I've listened to a lot more of it now. The way I hear it is one develops a musical motif with the left hand, allowing for variation on the theme, whilst extemporising on the theme with the right hand. All the items I've listened to follow this format. Am I getting close?
Interesting concept,the repeating theme makes it sound quite 'folky' in a modal sort of way (maybe that's not a good way to explain it?).Not something I could spend much time listening to but that's just personal pref. I still can't see why it's called 'New Age' as there's nothing new about this musical form.
