Michael Whalen beautiful ambient piano, synth and electronics Michael Whalen – Kiss The Quiet

Michael Whalen beautiful ambient piano, synth and electronics Michael Whalen – KISS THE QUIET:  Michael’s highly skilled combination of beautiful ambient piano, synth and electronics will add new dimensions to your experience… as you listen to the opening 6:07 title track, “Kiss the Quiet“, you will realize that your ears are in the presence of musical genius (that’s the only sample track that’s “live” right now, as the album doesn’t go hot until 2 February, 2018… I’ll come back and add the rest of the samples when they appear)… I especially dug the synth/string introduction to this composition.

As you know by now, if you read my reviews often, I believe that the best way to realize the talent of a player is to “see” them as you listen… the “official video” of “Heart So Full Of Joy” beautifully conveys emotions that we have all experienced, and gives even deeper meanings to them…

…totally wonderful… I found the weave of “people” into the video to be one of it’s best production values… loved this one!

If what your ears are thirsting for is music that has both mystical and majestic qualities, you’ll definitely find “Almost Touching Heaven” to bring you closer to whatever you define as Nirvana… Michael’s “pacing” on this composition is better than so many other players, and his weave of strident piano with strings will help your spirit rise higher and higher… listen to this beautiful piece with your headphones on!

Even if you don’t believe you’ve listened to his music before, you may well have… he’s put together over 700 TV and film scores, as well as 30 solo and soundtrack recordings… the song of his of the ten offered up on this album that (hands-down) won my vote for personal favorite, the 6:08 “No More Secrets“, will dig deep down into your consciousness and stay with you for years to come… this piece NEEDS an award… & I predict it will get one!

I give Michael my MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) rating of 4.98 for this superb aural adventure.  Get more information about his at the Michael Whalen website.         Rotcod Zzaj
