Electronic Christian Music, also called CEDM, Christian electronic dance music, or CDM, is a rapidly expanding genre of contemporary Christian electronic music consisting of live dance numbers using a mix of gospel, hip-hop, jazz, and new age influences. It is also referred to as Christian’Trance. Electronic Christian Music is quickly spreading across North America and the UK as an exciting new Christian music style, blending the latest Christian music styles with traditional Christian rhythms and sounds. This style of music is very similar to “house” or “club” music styles, but Christian electronic dance songs tend to be less polished and therefore have a more personal and sincere sound.
Electronic Christian Music has grown out of and is often influenced by the Christian musical styles of the past such as Cajun, Jazz, Synth, Reggae, Latin, and swing. Some artists whose music is considered popular amongst Christians are: Paul Winter, Wayne Newton, Nancy Honeytree, Amy Lee, Chuck Girard, Tony Cuffe, Curt Johnson, and Dennis Hopper. As electronic Christian music continues to grow, so will the number of reputable and talented Christian performers that can be found.
In recent years, many churches have purchased computer software programs which they use to add electronic Christian music to their worship services. Some churches have even created their own music library which includes Christian songs, instrumental, Electronic Christian Music and instrumental tracks. Other churches like Hillsong United in Oregon have created their own song catalog using the same types of Christian songs that you would find on any CDs. Other churches have chosen not to use these types of Christian songs or to purchase any computer based Christian music software. Some of the more conservative or more traditional Christian churches still prefer original hymns, readings, and preaching rather than using electronic Christian music software.
If you’re interested in using electronic Christian music to bring people back to God, you might want to do some research about the different genres available. Electronic Christian music software has come a long way over the last few years. In fact, some churches have already incorporated a wide variety of Christian songs into their worship services. In fact, some of these newer Christian software applications are so advanced that they can easily blend Christian songs with contemporary Christian music to bring people back to an exciting and memorable time.
There are many different genres of Christian audio. These include traditional worship songs, children’s hymns, spiritual songs, and more. In addition, many churches have become aware that using electronic Christian music helps people feel closer to their church. For instance, attending a church with an audio, Christian song CD player, a person can sit in the pew and listen as they feel closer to the Lord. At the same time, they are able to enjoy the comforting presence of the sound of God’s love through the words of God.
Today, the electronic Christian music industry is flourishing. It is an industry that is growing larger each year. In fact, the demand for electronic Christian songs has increased so much that the music industry is actually seeing more profit than it did a few years ago.
Of course, it wouldn’t be accurate to say that profit is the driving force behind the growth of the electronic, Christian music industry. Instead, profit is being meted out to those of us who created the original quality Christian songs. After all, there are many people in the world who will not appreciate a song unless they hear it being used in a religious setting. When you take the word of the author of a song and make that song available to all Christians through the electronic medium, you have created a gold mine.
Electronic Christian music has definitely expanded the boundaries of traditional Christian worship. These days, you can find Christian songs being played in nightclubs, Christian seminars, and Christian training sessions. While the popularity of trance music has diminished somewhat, the electronic version of Christian music has certainly grown. The best part about electronic, Christian music is that even those non-Christians who are drawn to the sounds of Christian trance music can still respect and follow the lead of the worship leaders.
