Laurent Girard returns here with a little disc of more sweetly melodic, unassumingly expansive ambient music. Consisting of two ten minute numbers, ‘Phoebe’ starts of with what sounds like acoustic guitar, picked hypnotically while single notes map out the bones of a melody that is gradually fleshed-out by sonorous synths. Across the track the same basic melody and rhythmic core are reconfigured into various textural and tonal variations with a lightness of touch that makes it all sound so deceptively simple.
The second track, ‘Orphea’, treads a more melancholic path across a more strident rhythm, breaking down halfway into a seething yet restrained drone out of which the same melancholic structure arises again before fading off into strange, dusky abstraction. Another top pick from Hibernate Recordings.
10/10 Michael LoCicero Customer review, 4th September 2014
This Album Is Way Too Good For Me Not To Have Heard Of Him. Laurent Girard aka(Melodium), Has 20+ Releases. This One Finds Him On The Wonderful Hibernate Label's Post Card Series. This 2 Track 3"CDr Is Limited To 100 Copies, Which I Also Find Out Is Available As A 4 Track Download. NORMAN Caries Several Of This Pieces If You Are Interested. I Know After Listening To This Piece Several Times Now That I Will Be Looking Into Some More Of MELODIUM's Earlier Work. I Highly Recommend This Album.......Michael LoCicero
