A newbie question: I am talking about the song starting at the 3 min mark, at the 7 minute mark, and the song starting at the 10:30 mark. What style are these 3 songs?

Silent Hill (as I'm sure you know) is a video game series and most pieces of music (music must have words to be songs) from such games would be considered "new age." Verdegrand is a great player of such music smile .

I didn't watch the video, (especially because of the "violent and disturbing images" warning) but I did check out the places you mentioned. IMO it sounds like George Winston's style: pleasant, chords. I can't think of a name for the genre but it's not classical.

Edit: Thanks, Bobpickle. New age, of course.
Best regards,

Without even listening to this, I can describe it ... lots of diatonic harmonies with lots of repetition. Close? smile

Yup - I would go with New Age as well.
Good for relaxing in the tub or getting
a massage.
