New age music bland? “Not if I have anything to do about it!” says Connecticut-based composer and multi- instumentalist Christopher Caouette. “Epic New Age” is the term Christopher uses to describe his overall style. As heard on his many releases, it is a fresh mix of orchestral, Celtic, and New Age music influenced heavily by the film industry. Alandar is the newest release after a hiatus and doing work composing for film, including “The Tin Woodsman Of Oz,” produced by Hash, Inc. Christopher has also joined forces with the Golden Harp Irish Dance Company to produce a series of live shows based around his music. Caouette, classically trained in piano, has been composing and recording his style of New Age music since 1986. In 1999, his artist-owned label, Inner Force Music (IFM), was formed and saw the release of Ring Of Dragons, which charted on New Age Reporter. Ring of Dragons received great reviews, and Caouette engaged in a short tour in support. The follow-up CD, Dragonwind (2001), was released on the well-known New Age label, Etherean Music, and included a 15-minute computer animation music video. Later returning to his own record label, IFM, Christopher released Faerielore, which was the first album to also be digitally available worldwide. It continues to do well.

Epic-Fantasy Cinematic music from Christopher Caouette paint the story of the lost book of Legends From The Chronicler.
''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."
