Last update: June 13, 2020.





Music, through the positive emotions it conveys, is a privileged means to illustrate our vision of a world of beauty, to spread energy, and to get out of this grey prosaicism which makes us waste our lives. I discovered a lot in virtual worlds and their elven communities. I tell here the most interesting that I know, from this point of view, sorted by vibration. So please us this page as a playlist, or explore around the target of each link...


Important note:
The remuneration of the artists is what allow them to create the musics we hear. For this reason, I avoid giving links on Youtube. Most «legal» sites just reproduces the old pattern of the vinyl era music companies: only a small part of the purchase price goes to the artists. «Funding» through advertising allows the high financial to smother the sites they do not like. As to piracy, it is the best means to eliminate all the small artists that the establishment doesn't like.

It is therefore vital, to protect our culture and our freedom, to make know interesting artists, to protect their intellectual property rights, and above all, to support them by buying directly on their site, or by making donations. This is why I propose the sites of the authors.

Thus, if you are a musician, check in this page the free publishers, to cut down the dependency on big companies which exploit and smother music.

However some artists offer free of rights music, or they allow to be heard on free radios.


The New Age

(Permalink) Last update: May 26, 2022


The New Age especially expresses spiritual vibrations, from simple nature to cosmic music, including Elvish or celtic. During its start in the 1980 years, it was censored in the media. Since, its growing success allowed some of its artists to pass in the great show business. The New Age includes today a large number of styles, and it honours all the religions. But be cautious that the New Age movement itself may often propagate cultish or misleading ideas.


Aeoliah, one of the founders of the genre, with a large and homogenous production of sweet and inspiring music, and also painting.

Their original editor was bought by another, which censors them since. So we can hear them only on Youtube or other similar sites. For this reason, we may be tempted to record them from these sources, before they disappear: «Golden Voyage n°1» «Golden Voyage n°2» «Golden Voyage n°3» (one of the music I had selected for the Eolis) «Temple Garden» «Thimble Full Of Light» (one of the music I had selected for the Eolis, at evening) 15 tracks on Real Gone Music

Music of the Elves

(Permalink) Last update: May 26, 2022.


The music of the Elves and fairies is distinguished by a pure and ethereal vibration, while using mostly acoustic instruments. It evokes the angelic world of the Elves, or the beauty of nature. This style started with the film «The Lord of the Rings», but it now owes its success to numerous artists. We heard a lot in Second Life.

Celtic music, Folk music

(Permalink) Last update: April 30, 2017


Folk music is known for fostering the ancient popular traditions of Europe, using ancient acoustic instruments. It speaks of fests and country life... Celtic music adds a more lyrical, romantical, see spiritual vibration, starting from an idealised vision of the Celtic culture, sometimes nearing the elvish.


Aine Minogue plays Celtic harp, accompagned with other instruments. See for instance King of the Fairies (which made the delights of the Elfs in Second Life)


Celtic Woman is an all female group playing an Irish folk repertoire. Some are close to the elven style.


Peder B. Helland: Dance of Life


Enya and Moya are very popular singers. Try «Aldebaran», «Tempus Vernum» «May it be», and of course the unforgettable «Aniron»

Cosmic music

(Permalink) Last update: May 25, 2022.


Mostly using synthesizers with supernatural sounds, cosmic music (often called «space ambient») conveys the grandiose and lyrical vibrations of space, or other worlds, sometimes from science fiction. Sometimes austere, often strange or spiritual, nor dull neither prosaic.

In these times where a small number of big companies control, exploit or censor music, it is important to have independent publishers, which publish and protect artists, without «selection» of styles nor exploitation of the fans. (I cannot be warrant of these links)


bandcamp publisher: sales, lists management services, for fans, authors and labels, in «fair trade»: 80% of sales go to the artists.

Cyan-Music Independant label in creative common license. Look for authors like Jaja (space ambient). I was also recommendef «natural life essence», but the site does not offer a search function. Worth trying, still.

No royalty music

(Permalink) Last update: May 25,2022.


In theory, if we want to use the music of another creator, we just have to ask for a permission, and to pay for the rights. In practice, most often the right holders even not care to reply, or the rights are out of proportion with our project.

For this reason, some artists choose to provide no royalty music, or free of rights music, which we can use without a permission, in parties, videos, in a story background, in games, etc. Conditions generally are attribution to the author, not to resell the original music, and sometimes no commercial use (alway check on the site). Some sites request a login, to provide a written licence. And «free» does not mean bad quality! I selected these sources for a minimum quality.

But to do free music has a cost for artists, so that a gift is welcome, if you can.

Music radio channels are an invaluable resource, to share vibrations or to give moods to places, gatherings, celebrations, etc. They were heavily impacted by the repression by the Internet majors, and most disappeared in some weeks in 2016. I left the links, so that you can check yourself the extend of the damage inflicted to our culture.

But here also, many artists reacted by offering free of rights music, in radios that you can hear at home on speakers, or set in virtual worlds, etc.

Music in black and white

(Permalink) Last update: May 15, 2021.


As for movies, music from before 1967 was in «black and white» that is grey and without vibration. There were however a few pearls worthy of remembering.


Salade de fruits (Fruits salad), by Bourvil, a love song perfumed to the fruits


Take five by the Dave Brubeck Quartet, which sometimes illuminated the radio (only convenient way to listen music at the time)


What a wonderful world, performed by Louis Armstrong. This instrumentation is the kind of music we could hear during the Christmases of my childhood...


Pata pata by Mirian Makeba. In fact, she was among the first to sing in colors.


A bicyclette by Yves Montand. Nostalgia for a time when we could roll in the fields, arising a changing bouquet of grasshoppers, butterflies and frogs... This was before chemical farming killed everything.


Classical music

(Permalink) Last update: November 8, 2018.


(Page in preparation) Classical music is often presented as boring and flat, and the capacity to bear it as a social selection criteria. In reality, there is fantastic stuff, just that by the time they had no synths. Imagine if they had.


Prince Igor Polovtsian Dances, by Alexander Borodin, stage play by the Bolshoi


(Youtube link removed: spam) Улетай на крыльях ветра, by Е. Сотникова. Okie, this is a «modern» interpretation, but when I heard that the first time, I thought it was New Age. But in fact it is an excerpt of the Prince Igor, by Borodine.


Symphony Interruptus, story to tell that in the classical concert we also have good laughing... in the key.

Last update on May 30, 2016



There are already more than 20 years ago that I read «The Lord of the Rings». In the 1980's it was confidential, and it circulated among ecologists and communities to nourish their dreams. So if today it has a big world success, it makes me smile, a little from condescension, and much because I am sincerely happy to see this marvellous story available for everybody.



A strange story: An Elvish dream



The music

Composed by Howard Shore, played by the London Philharmonic Orchestra

Caution: Dramatic or tragic themes are dangerous to hear for depressive people.

The Fellowship of the Ring

The main theme, short, moving and pathetic, links together all the music which describes the various episode of the first book, pristine nature, lyric drama or fight, elfic poetry... In «Aniron», the marvellous elfic voice of Enya sings Arwen Undomiel's love for Aragorn.

The two towers

The return of the King



The movies

With my opinion the big problem with these movies is that there is too much influence of the fight video games style (understand in giving much more importance to ugly things than on nice ones) in place of the epic style of the books. There is however enough nice things in the books, the songs of the Elves, the beauty of Rivendel or of the flowery Lorien, that we hoped to see more. This is my criticism, see here a more extensive criticism (left menu, see «movie goer's guide»).


The music of Howard Shore is really fantastic, and it made of these movies a true opera. There is much to bet that if will remain THE music of Middle Earth. Interventions of other artists such as the elfish voice of Enya harmoniously enrich this choice. (If somebody knows how to get the Elves song in the Shire, please tell me)

The casting is good and very likely if we compare to the books. Their play is convincing and matches well the story. No doubt that they will remain THE faces of the story. Only criticism, there are not enough lesser roles. For instance there was no need to replace Glorfindel by Arwen.

The scenery are also well done and coherent with the books. But the style is too dark, too grey, not enough light. For instance Edoras is convincing, but the inhabitants of Rohan and Minas Tirith are really austere, all dressed in black. We even see Elves in black! The grey world of Peter Jackson is not that of Middle Earth.

The beauty and poetry of the elvish world, and even of the Shire, appear only in the first movie of the series, and we no more find them in the two others. Clearly this was not the main concern of the movie makers.

The distortions of the story are the obvious defect of the movies of Peter Jackson. Right, to put a book in a movie always requires to adapt the story. But not to distort it. The movie maker can add scenes which have more impact on the screen that in reading. For instance the Eowyn song, or in the first movie the very beautiful love scene between Arwen and Aragorn, which make forget many others on a theme however really worn. We can pardon benign deformations when the result is staggering, for instance the army of the deads into the Pelennor Fields. But Peter Jackson goes much too far, to the point of making the plot uncoherent: Arwen in the place of Glorfindel, Sarumane manipulating the Caradhras, Elves at Hornburg, Arwen going to Valinor, Frodon at Osgiliath, Frodon throwing Sam or falling into the Crack of Doom... all this added to the unavoidable short cuts of a movie adaptation. It is really a pity, and even sometimes painful to discover. In place of adding these useless and cumbersome episodes, it would have be much better to spend time in episodes which are heavily missing, for instance the adventures of the four hobbits with Tom Bombadil, perhaps the most picturesque of all what Tolkien imagined.

At last all this psychology of TV series which misrepresents certain characters could have been avoided.It is perfectly ridiculous, shocking and completely incoherent. In reality, the Elve Arwen has a pure and uncompromising love, and, in the free world of the Elves, never Elrond would have tried to make her to change her heart. Aragorn is not only the heir of the Elve Luthien, but also of the Goddess Melian, and it is perfectly ridiculous to allot him with the indecision of an antihero. The Hobbits have benign defects who make them endearing in their way, without no need to add this craftiness which appears nowhere in the movie. Boromir the honest is torn by a dilemma worthy of a Greek tragedy. Faramir is precisely the only man never to be seduced by the ring, and this places him very far above the teenager psychology allotted to him in the movie. Treebeard is a being of a great wisdom, there was no need to laugh of him. The subtle shift of feelings between Gimli and Legolas is eluded or caricatured, when Smeagol is analysed in details, as if he was the main character of the movie. The stress is too much on fighting scenes, and anyway there are too much shouts and grimaces, even out of battle scenes. All this will please the adepts of video games, but will be regretted by all who love Tolkien's world.



We can look at these movies, and even whose who love Tolkien's world could have pleasure to see them. But it is incredible that such deformation could have be accepted by criticists! I recommend the long versions, as long supplements compensate the missing episodes of the short versions, but without repairing the deformations..

«The Fellowship of the Ring,the best of the three despite deformations and lapses. Short version: 2 DVD recommenced long version: 4 DVD and The music by Howard Shore and others.

«The two towers», exaggerates the defects of the first. Short version: 2 DVD recommended long version: 4 DVD and The music by Howard Shore and others.

«The return of the King» goes more logical, even in keeping with the incoherences of the second. Short version: 2 DVD recommended long version: 4 DVD and The music by Howard Shore and others



I have a dream: to do like with Star Wars: in some years the movies of the previous episodes, Bilbo, see the Silmarilion, With the Valinor Light trees, the fall of Gondolin, the War of Wrath, the fall of Numenor... But such a work would have to be done by epic artists, not by video games fans.

(Added in June 2015) But such a work would had to be done by epic artists, not by video games fans. At which point some are unable to heed any criticism? (Added in May 2016:) Well, I still bought the film... just to realise that it was the first of a new trilogy. And Peter Jackson's dark Elfs did not enticed me to buy the two others. What I heard or saw on youtube no more.



The books

Part 1: The Community of the Ring - Part 2: The Two Towers - Part 3: The Return of the King - The Hobbit

«The Silmarilion» and all the other books to really understand the magical world of the Middle Earth. For serious fans, also read: «The adventures of Tom Bombadil», «The Histories of Middle Earth», «The lost tales», which are drafts of the Silmarilion, difficult to read, often uncompleted or contradictory, but with sometimes more details.




To know more, see the Encyclopaedia of Arda (Elfic name of Middle Earth)...



The dream continues...

And, did you knew, The Middle Earth, It was Europe in Ancient Times, before the upheavals at the end of the 4th age, which gave it its today aspect, where it lost nearby all its magic (nearby, heyhey!) So the regions of Harlingdon and Forlingdon (around the Grey Havens) seems to match with the today Ireland, Wales, Cornwall, Brittany... which could explain that there are still elfic words in Celtic languages, see peoples with elfic blood, and elfic voices such as Enya... The war of the Ring is due to have happened in 4000 BC, (with an uncertainty of some years) and, curiously, it is at that time that archaeologists place the beginning of our civilizations. Probably during the 4th Age the world was bent another time, as it already was at the time of the fall of Numenor, forbidding any access to any archaeological remnant of the first 4 ages. Tolkien himself stated that we probably entered the 7th Age in 1945, at the fall of the great enemy at that time. But, if we do no more meet the material appearance of sauron today, his spirit is still here, and his influence is still visible on weak minds who still try to grasp on the world to bring us all into darkness. I even see a kind of new ring, with 239 nucleons, you see what I mean, bringing incredible power and danger, indestructible except in the fire which created it...

I indicate these resources for their interest, but without any waranty on their content that I do not control. (and which can be modified without my notice)

(January 1st 2013) I created these pages in the beginning of the Internet, when we had to «surf on the web» to find sites. Then came Google and others, which made this search miraculously simple. So, for ten years I did not really updated these pages... However, since some years, I note that relevant sites are less and less visible in these search engines, hidden by an increasing number of verbiage pages supported by powerful financial means. And surreptitiously, the vital network of links which formed «the web» has disappeared: we no more control Internet! So I say to everybody:




Then I put these pages back in action.

Do not hesitate to create links toward these pages, or to tell me interesting links.
