Myndstream Fall Flights
It has been great to have been immersed in the Myndstream
flights project during 2021, and to my further pleasure we have another flight
sojourn to take right now, as we embrace autumn and the beauty it brings
through the medium of Myndstream Fall
Flights, and the various artists that have created offerings for it.
We start with a colourful solo piano composition called Autumn, composed and performed by Roger Kellaway, the lightness of touch
on the keys here is palpable, but the depth that the artist creates is equally
exciting in this vibrant piano arrangement, so much so that one could with ease
visualise leaves spiralling towards the ground on this most beautiful presentation.
Now as someone once said, it’s time for something completely
different, as we head into the realms of the electronic genre with David Baron and a piece called End Of One Thing. A clever performance
can be found here with this artistic EM based offering, a build and progression
of great quality, some quite fascinating effects, along with a crafted
elevation of intensity can all be found in this riveting composition.
We close one door and open up the next, and the realm we find
ourselves within now is the land of Acoustica, and thanks to the skill set on
guitar of the talented Janet Noguera,
we have a beautiful track to enjoy. Favor
From The Wind is a soft and reflective arrangement that reminds me in style
of a melodic Will Ackerman
performance, one that would be perfect music to watch a mid-western sun fall
slowly too, this is a track that such grace and textures can be found within.
The autumnal touch of this piece is stunning, called The Golden Hour; it is performed on acoustic guitar by Karlijn Langendijk. There is a
wonderful sun kissed reverie here waiting to be found in this work of precise
acoustic accomplishment, one feels a sense of an almost classical offering
gently floating across the cadence of a late autumn day, and all with such a
blissful sense of peace and serenity within its manifestation too.
Our next composition is a curious offering entitled Insects and performed by Larry Fast. Here we find an electronic
arrangement that has a mood and intensity all of its own, and mixes several
masterful techniques within its realms as we travel through it, in an almost
melding of Keith Emerson meets John Carpenter, in what is a wonderfully
exciting ride of classy electronic music.
We finish with an old friend in Bernward Koch, this German based composer and pianist has long been
on my radar, and regularly creates such beautiful melodies and compositions,
and this beautiful reverie entitled An
Old Fairy Tale continues that magical consistency for the artist, in a film
score styled narrative, that manifests a tranquil vibe whilst bathing in a sea
of utter fluency.
These latest releases from Myndstream are sure set to become
popular releases with those that listen to them.
