Mike ‘O Brien is a seeker, he translates his regrets with beautiful piano melodies drenched in gloom, exploring the laments of a past mired in sorrow. The climate change issues and the pollution of our world are woven in cold sounds of darkness. Spoken word pieces on this release corroborate his anger and powerlessness in deep and cold tunes filled with sorrow.
Slow but accurate the story of Melankolia continues and evolves further on. The inspiration for this release is based on the look-back Mike ‘O Brien got into the subject matter by a book of the same name (MECHUDZU), written by his uncle (professor Bryan Cantley). MECHUDZU is a mystical dark ambient release that drags you in a world of sinister melancholy which contains beautiful sounds of the darker side of life. His icy piano work is a musical conductor to visit the surreal worlds this artist captures in his dreamy compositions. The dreary mood on this recording is amplified with refined soundscapes and electronic effects.
Melankolia is an artist using a neoclassical input that keeps on delivering an amazing carpet of Dark Ambient music worth to check out. MECHUDZU is only available in digital format on Bandcamp (name your prize). Consider this a gift from an unknown but very talented artist.
