New age piano music is becoming more popular each day, so much that it appears to have become a sub genre in itself. Traditionally new age music has been a peacefully monotonous and relaxing combination of synthesizer pads and rhythmic sequences under simple modal melodies. A lot of new age piano music is simply so with no other instruments. The piano uses a lot of sustain and is normally recorded with heavy reverb to give it that spacey, dreamy feel. Some new age piano music however is combined with synths and other solo instruments as accompaniment.
