Pedro Meirelles – Tear (Spotify)

Pedro Meirelles – Tear
(Spotify)

Pedro Meirelles is a classical/rock composer, producer and multi-instrumentalist from Rio de Janeiro.
Throughout time, while developing his hybrid alternations of dissonant minimalism and percussive orchestrations, Meirelles began building and licensing his extensive solo catalogue while also working with renowned names such as Gogol Bordello, Serj Tankian (System of a Down), Goran Bregovic and Andrew Scheps.
“Tear” is an expansive track, building from gentle trickles into a triumphant emotive escalation. The first section resembles the beginning of a snowfall, gentle in its introduction, before a blizzard envelops the night. The track manages to effectively convey a rising-and-falling feel in under two minutes, within a wintry atmospheric pull.

Manon – Streams (Spotify)

Manon – Streams
(Spotify)

Manon paints landscapes for your ears. The palette of the singer-songwriter is full of contrasting tone colors: light and shadow collide in a universe that is as alien as it is earthbound.
Her pictures captivate with filigree lines, wide surfaces and powerful accents. Composed by Manon, the music unites infinity and intimacy and pulls away from classical structures. Sometimes the work floats slightly, the next moment it erupts like a volcano. Delicate melodies flow into menacing abysses. The result though, is always both organic and authentic.
The new songs were recorded by Manon at Greenhouse Studios in Reykjavik and produced with Francesco Fabris.

Edward Delsing – Remembering the Moment (Edit)
(Spotify)

Edward grew up in rural Canada. When he was young, his parents bought him a piano, which quickly became his favorite thing in the world. He became drawn to instrumental piano music by Chopin, Beethoven, Vangelis, Yiruma and others, and fell in love with creating music at the piano at an early age. Edward has been performing and teaching music for 20 years, during which time he has been honing his craft as a composer.

Edward has written many styles of music, but his current focus is on writing instrumental contemporary classical music. His piano music is sentimental, relaxing, stirring, often nostalgic, and his melodic style has been compared to Ludovico Einaudi, Nils Frahm, and Max Richter. Edward has piano recordings coming out on BandCamp and all music streaming platforms throughout 2019 and beyond, including his anticipated debut album, Suncatcher (July 2019).

Moshi – Here, Always
(Spotify)

This is a peaceful piano ballad over a beautiful ambient backdrop of synth pads, evoking a “longing” feeling by using inverted chords and a flexible tempo to give the effect of always almost arriving home, but always leaving a desire for resolution, finally landing on it by the end of the song.

Macgray – Oblivion (Spotify)

Macgray – Oblivion
(Spotify)

The album “Journey to the Dawn” is the collapse of a man’s world and its subsequent reconstruction. Panic attacks follow glimpses of absolute calm. When the inner voice awakens, reality is buried. Shadows of the unconscious become real. The whirlwind of thoughts suffocates. There is no way out, only a sense of the imminent arrival of the end.
In this story, “Oblivion” is a moment of passage, a transition to forgiveness. When one accepts and learns to forget…
