Melbourne based, London born ambient musican. This period in Australia is giving me some valuable time to spend on developing some sense of sound. My first EP [ AURELIA ] has now been released as a FREE DOWNLOAD by Blurry Pup Recordings - http://blurrypup.com/BPR006 Go get it! I hope some people enjoy these pieces, comments make my day.. even if critical I'd like to know what you all think.

[ BlurryPup ] We really like the varying moods on this one, from melancholy to hopeful and uplifting. Guitar on Aurelia by Sima and Michael tells us there's more to come as a split EP with 2 international musicians is planned for mid 2011

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Pointing to illusive moment and tender keys [ Aurelia ] partakes the subtle side of ambient music while saturating various basic components from an array of different genres, bridging classical keys with minimal atmospheres and the post-rock feel well integrated within, the end result of [ Aurelia ] is an instrumental album that reveal a story of an conceivable sadness and hope. Each and every note interpretation lead to a bigger picture, a picture that relates to story, a story that leads to a thought and a thought that vanishes to an emotion.

Review for 52 by Orellana

Orellana is a neo-classical/post-rock collective hailing from Bristol, UK. Their new album “52”, released in late December, brought in the new year with it’s explosive and intricate sound. The project’s music transcends genre definitions in order to focus on a broad, diverse concept that is more emotional than tangible. This particular release is full of rich and diverse arrangements, but it is also a powerful exercise in minimalism, one that showcases the strength of very few notes placed in the right spots. The simplicity of the arrangement is actually one of the strongest aspects of this entire release: there’s a palpable stillness created by the long, drone notes in the background, which almost makes you feel like the world is happening in slow motion. When the chords and notes change, it feels quite monumental due to the beautiful contrast between the stillness of the background textures and the expressive sound of the guitar-based melodies.
