Artist: Melorman
Title: Out in a Field
Format: CD
Label: Sun Sea Sky Productions (@)
Rated: *****
Originally released in 2009 on the Symbolic Interation label, 'Out in a Field' was Melorman's (aka Antonis Haniotakis) 2nd release. Since then he's had a couple more, 'Waves' which I reviewed a while back being the last I am aware of. Stylistically 'Out in a Field' does not differ a whole lot from his later material. Dulcet synth tones and electric piano, occasional strings and light programmed rhythm are the modus operandi here, creating a gentle, soothing ambience; active yet passive. Perfect music for contemplative and/or relaxing times. To a degree I like this Melorman release more than 'Waves' which I perceived as being on the adventurous side in places. You really can't go wrong with this one if you enjoy mellow ambient with melody, simple but effective, a pleasure to listen to, and worthy of replays.
