The story of Continuous Piano pioneer Lubomyr Melnyk is "one of the best in music," says A Closer Listen, "A sonic parallel to that of J.K. Rowling with more than a touch of magic." The Ukrainian composer, whose 70th birthday coincides with this new release, developed his spontaneous style of cascading, arpeggiated piano playing while homeless in Paris. His work has reached a broader audience in recent years thanks to releases on Unseen Worlds and Erased Tapes. The latter label brings forth Fallen Trees, an ambitious and collaborative album featuring contributions from Japanese vocal artist Hatis Noit, Berlin-based cellist Anne Müller, and American singer David Allred, produced by Erased Tapes founder Robert Raths.Coverage on music sites Official website
