Ambient Piano BrillianceWell, it's been awhile since I wrote a review and that is because I'm pretty busy these days with writing and recording but when the Doctor sends a request for ambient piano music I couldn't resist. As many of you know from my own music I love the idea of ambient and emotionally engaging music, Dr. Fred Cole manages to deliver that with his instrumental "Mausoleum". Sparse yet beautifully arranged Mausoleum is so satisfying on so many levels. It starts out very minimal which really sets up the listener for an amazing musical odyssey. By the halfway point, the track picks up in "intensity" and continues to compel the listener in a most pleasing and interesting way. From a performance perspective, Dr. Fred Cole nails it. The track is subtly intricate while never losing sight of its humble beginnings. The cascading runs and sonically complex harmony never become extraneous or over-wrought, instead they continue to build in such a way that keeps the music metaphorically moving forward, in a word, I was riveted for nine and half minutes while never becoming bored, not an easy thing to do when your track is over nine minutes long. From a production perspective the recording is really well done, the piano maintains a very rich tonal quality without becoming tinny or brittle, I'd be interested in knowing whether this was a real piano with a mic or was part of a sample library, either way it matters not because the recording is mint and only adds to the overall ambience of the track. This is a stellar track with killer production and unparalleled compositional value. Perfect for any occasion when you just want a little introspective quiet time. Dr. Cole, I salute you sir, this track was amazing, thank you :) XXXChristopher CarrionXXX
Nice piece of pianoHello! Very beautiful sound of piano, and very good sound recording; what is not obvious with this instrument. This composition evokes me of big spaces, a little bit foggy, and a little of nostalgia. I appreciate especially the first part of the morçeau: it is for me more suggestive,it more makes me travel. The accentuations on certain notes are placed well and give of the relief to the composition: very nice! Have a good day!
