Trance is a genre of electronic dance music that developed in the 1990s. It is usually characterized by a tempo of between 125 and 150 beats per minute.
The origin of the term "trance" in regards to the genre is not known either. However, there are some possible antecedents: Neil Young's 1982 electronic album, Trans, bears a resemblance to the trance music genre, Klaus Schulze's album Trancefer (1981) and Jean-Michel Jarre's earlier works which feature many sounds similar to that commonly used in earlier trance music and the early self-proclaimed trance act Dance 2 Trance whose music was characterised with house, techno and new age music elements. Other schools of thought argue the name may refer to an induced emotional feeling, high, euphoria, chills, or uplifting rush listeners[who?] claim to experience, while other suggestions trace the name to the actual trance-like states the earliest forms of the music attempted to emulate in the 1990s before the genre's focus changed.
