Hey all, I'm new to the new age scene but I really enjoy tracks with no vocals, and only synthesized sounds and largely woodwind instruments. I know this may seem specific but I have heard this music before and its not performed by an orchestra or a band really, but I have for searched through tons of tracks here on amazon and elsewhere and have just not found what I am looking for. I am sorry if I am vague but any help or direction is appreciated!

Try Robert Rich, Steve Roach, Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schultze, Deep Space Network, Biosphere, Christopher Franke, Global Communication, Synergy, Vangelis, Viridian Sun or Stars Of The Lid. All are instrumental ambient synthesized space music. Try Kitaro if you like a mix of synth and accoustic music, out of 23 albums he has that I have, one has singing on it and it's Jon Anderson.

Hi Tyler - I believe what you are looking for will be available mostly in the new age NARADA label. Artists like David Lanz & Paul Speer, Spencer Brewer, Eric Tingstad & Nancy Rumbel, Ira Stein & Russel Walder, Wayne Gratz, Bruce Mitchell use woodwinds to good effect

you should check out that new Ram Dass CD with DJ kriece "Cosmix":
Cosmix is a rhythmic, energizing album that merges timeless wisdom with modern sounds, chants, and world instruments. Ram Dass' most relevant dialogue is mixed with moving, chilled back electronica perfect for yoga, meditation, or atmospheric entertainment. The music dominates without diminishing the power of Ram Dass' messages on tracks "Mantra," "Stuck," "The Game," "Additya Hridayam," and six others. The enhanced CD also contains a historic, heartwarming ten minute video excerpt from "The Last Dance," Ram Dass' final recorded conversation with his life-long friend, the late LSD guru, Timothy Leary, who encouraged Ram Dass to celebrate death as the next transitional stage on their journey. Ram Dass is a spiritual and cultural icon known for embracing and sharing Eastern teachings with the West. Famous for his lifelong friendship with the late LSD researcher Timothy Leary, Ram Dass' path took him in another direction, to India where he embraced spiritual enlightenment with his guru Neem Karoli Baba. Inspired, he wrote the ground-breaking and noteworthy guidebook "Be Here Now," over thirty years before Eckhart Tolle shared a similar message with the world. I STRONGLY recommend that you check this album out ... AVAILABLE AT: Amazon, Itunes and CDbaby on CD and for MP3 download

I second Stars Of The Lid. I listen to them constantly. Also check out Brian Eno (his "Shutov Assembly" record is really great). There are a lot of various Bill Laswell-related ambient records that are really good too. Though they vary widely in instrumentation. His collaborations with Pete Namlook (who does great solo work in the vein of what you're looking for) are definitely worth a listen. Recently I've been listening to Aaditya's "Form Is Emptiness." Great stuff.

One of the best synthesized albums is "Resonance" by Doucet & Miraz, please check it out here on Amazon...

You also might try the likes of Amethystium. They are similar to many of the artists listed here, but I have found none quite like them as far as synthesized sounds and and very airy ambiance. No vocals, but some backing vocals treated more like an instrument...trippy soundscapes, use of groove, downtempo

Bradley Joseph is a master at the keyboards, having toured with Yanni and Sheena Easton for many years, with his brilliant work heard on Yanni Live at the Acropolis. Try his albums Rapture or One Deep Breath.

Hey Tyler, I think Ann Licater (flutes) and Paradiso (didgeridoo) would be interesting to and both just played Carnegie Hall in October 2008.

Hi Tyler. My wife has an album out that you might enjoy called "Phantom Muse" by Becky Ayers. She works really hard at creating music that allows the listener to imagine their own story to go with the music. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family does. :)

Hey Tyler -

There is lots of stuff out there...I can give you a few things to look into:

Stars of the Lid - mellow synthesizer...very atmospheric
Jesus in Japan - cool, calming electronic atmospheres
Brian Eno/Harold Budd - in particular an album called "The Pearl"
Brian McBride
Michael Brook
and if you like horns, there's an album by Stuart Dempster that has a lot of horns and flutes recorded in cavernous spaces...haunting and beautiful.

Hope that helps!

Check out the 1991 release, "Indigo", by Patrick O'Hearn. Still sounds great, even in 2008. As of this writing, it's not available on MP3 Downloads, but I'm sure you can find it elsewhere.

Daniel Mark has a new song called "Make Me". It's synthesized with a live feel.
Hope this helps.

Peter Phippen plays bamboo flute also - Riley Lee - bamboo dreams. outside the flute stuff I highly recommend

Vangelis - Oceanic
