Ian Schrager opened his 2nd hotel in London. He told the Vanity Fair reporter: ‘We are into health, well-being, eating right, beauty, spirituality – no, it’s not New Age. I don’t want my hotel to sound New Age.’

New Age needs a new PR agent. The New Age movement has produced a lot of positive change in this country but it has somehow in the process become so uncool that it can’t get the credit. Journalists often ask me whether it “bothers” me that my music is labeled New Age Music. Of course it doesn’t bother me! There is a lot of great New Age Music out there. Just check out the fantastic CD “Mbnt: A Recollection Of Proto-Ambient Music From The Hearts Of Space” – a compilation by John Diliberto.
