Rixa White, an unorthodox artist from the new wave of New Age musicians is the first to promote rebellion over relaxation in this genre, encouraging his listeners to connect with their rebellious part and question the beliefs fearlessly to awaken the inner rebel. His iconic image, a long-haired man in plain white, hiding his face behind a white mask visualizes rebellion against all masks that we wear in life, "One Mask to hide them all". His sensational rebellious music sounds like a revenge against usual soft titles in New Age music and deserves such a new name as "Rebellious New Age".
Listeners are responding more favorably to this new hybrid music that demands their sub-conscious and capture their imagination. But, the question is how dangerious is, asking young listeners with a strong desire toward rebellion to explore new sonic landscapes that promotes rebellion instead of relaxation. Can such a music cause more riots in London or NewYork streets. Many of us have not forgotten the terror and fear on London riot days yet.
Is "What's Real?" album by Silentaria a sensational rebellion or a mystical message?!
Listen to its title track where a sensual breathy female voice says "Nothing is Real" in reply to a robotic mantra questioning "What's Real?". This rebellious music sounds like a revenge against usual soft titles in New Age music.
Many deserted New Age music as its boringness and diluted therapeutic view ruined the epic elemental part of it; however, a new wave of New Age artists is rising from the ashes along with elements of Electronic and Progressive Rock.
This new fusion music is mysterious, sensational and sensual spiritual. It can be called contemporary classical or neo-classical, but I think this new wave deserves such a new name as "Rebellious New Age".
Music stores may continue to put it in "New Age" category, but this aggressive music is definitely not suitable for local health shops anymore. These new artists use computers, synthesizers, samplers and drum machines mixed with natural sounds or sampled acoustic instruments to create complex textures and multi-layered rhythms.
One of the rising stars in this "Rebellious New Age" genre that encourages his listeners to connect with their rebellious part and question the beliefs fearlessly to awaken the inner rebel is Rixa White; the masked man in white behind Silentaria musical project.
As the first New Age artist that promotes rebellion instead of relaxation, he uses his sensual music as a vehicle to encourage doing things outside the rules. He believes persuading a particular constant belief will lead to conformity and obedience.
His fans describe Rixa White music as: a. A conceptual music for people that are self-thought b. Not a gimmick for standard human/sheep that follows the herd c. A great music while drinking wine with a beautiful lady and talking d. A sensual spiritual music that is great to play while watching a fish tank in a dark room
P.S.: Another strange thing about Rixa White, rather than his music is that you cannot find an unmasked photo of him on the net. I searched, but no luck.
