The Shores of Atlantis
This brand new single from pianist and composer Ross Mitchell has to be one of the most colourful tapestries of sound that I have heard in the genre of piano with added instrumentation for quite some time, a single that brought back a few memories for me too, and called The Shores of Atlantis.
I used to host a show by the title of this new single, and it indeed used to feature music very similar to this, Atlantis itself is also close to my heart given that I live on the island of Cyprus, one of the postulated sites of that ancient world.
The almost neo classical start to this piece was simply perfect and one that flowed beautifully into the pianists repeating piano motifs. This is one creative composition that has a special fluency, the orchestration and change of vibrancy added layer upon layer of crafted expertise, and onwards to the crescendo and a slight pause, which then elevated the piece to a soundtrack level entirely.
Here is a very pleasing new composition by the artist, one that draws a picturesque musical narrative of the lost city in a most pleasant and graphic way, surely a big hit could well be on the cards for The Shores of Atlantis by Ross Mitchell.
