ukrainian pianist melnyk - the pioneer of continuous piano music – creates sparklingly beautiful, minimalist, piano compositions aided by nils frahm & peter broderick.

erased tapes founder robert raths knew it was time to share the great musical legacy of melnyk, to which lubomyr simply responded “where were you guys when i was 30?”. recorded & produced by peter broderick with the additional help of nils frahm & martyn heyn, the 3 ambient musicians improvised using melnyk's piano motifs as an incredible starting point, while frahm & broderick add a beautiful & delicate dust cover of sounds & pearly effects, including ethereal strings & lush, warm woodwinds, that cast a lovely, glimmering sheen over the music, creating a beautiful spell & communal flow that carries you into wonderful internal spaces. “'corollaries' has to be experienced to be believed. lubomyr melnyk has created what can only be described as a modern masterpiece” - fluid radio “minimalism at its most lush, ornate, & taxing” - pitchfork.
