Following on from 2015’s incredible ‘rivers and streams’, melnyk’s piano style has lost of none of its entrancing fluidity – his beautiful melodies trickle down like falling droplets or rush by in a torrent.

each of the five works was composed and recorded by melnyk himself - between four and sixteen minutes long, the notes, sometimes played with uncanny velocity, blur to create an unbroken stream of sound, often inducing trance-like states and ineluctably holding listeners spellbound. Like his previous album, listeners with a taste for Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds and Masayoshi Fujita will find something wonderful within. It’s a strange, tender beautiful thing – unexplainable, the servant of no master.” - beat
