The instrumental music of Christopher Caouette begs some description,
as it does not fit neatly
into any one category. The pat term is New Age, though that expression
tends to be limited to
amorphous, often poorly constructed and banal "spacey"
music, and is a subset of the works of
Christopher Caouette, rather than a container. His compositions
are tonal pieces, lushly layered,
often with multiple movements, and paint varied musical impressions.
The composer enlists
elements from Progressive Electronic Music, Classical Music, Celtic
Music, World Beat Music, and
even Baroque Counterpoint. Caouette's music is emotionally evocative;
timbres, textures, rhythm,
melodies and harmonies intertwine and conspire to air out the
feelings of the listener. His
compositions are frequently playful, strongly rhythmic, sometimes
touchingly sweet, and often

I think I've finally found the perfect soundtrack for Anne McCaffrey's famous Dragonriders of Pern series. On "Ring of Dragons," lushly textured synthesizers paint evocative pictures of the power and beauty of these fantastic creatures. Christopher Caouette's compositions offer a wonderful variety of musical experiences. He includes elements of classical, Celtic, world beat, pop, and electronica into a powerfully energetic blend that's all his own. From soft, romantic ballads to full progressive electronic celebrations, this is music for riding dragons. Listen to this music on headphones and imagine soaring through the clouds on a moonlit night.
