What is High Tech Aor ?

It’s not an easy question to answer because High Tech Aor is a mix of different styles of music with heavy keyboards influences. Usually, is considered “High Tech” an Aor / Westcoast album heavily mixed with 80’s pop technology. Also sometimes called Synth Pop, the real High Tech Aor style is first of all an Aor or Westcoast album with synthesizers and usually keyboards programmings.

The Golden age of High Tech Aor is set between 1985 and 1992 but is not exclusively limited to this period of time. The dividing line between Pop, Dance Music & High Tech Aor Is very thin, so to be included in this book, a drastic selection have been made of real Aor albums, always very melodic, with great harmonies and sophisticated arrangements.

The bands that are the most representative of this style and this era are notably Mr. Mister, Donald Fagen, Think Out Loud, Boy Meets Girl, Eye To Eye, Gino Vannelli’s 80’s albums (“Black Cars”, “Big Dreamers Never Sleep” & “Inconsolable Man”), Sheena Easton’s “Private Heaven”, Go West, Animotion, Al Jarreau’s “High Crime”, Steely Dan’s masterpieces (“The Royal Scam”, “Aja” & “Gaucho”), Wax, and of course Aor favorites from collectors from all over the world like LaMarca, Joe Lamont, Michael Sembello, John Warren, Wolf & Wolf or Rosie Vela among many others.
