REVIEWS

"Floating on a Melody is featured for Best Album Cover Art by New Age Music World."

author: Michael Diamond Music - Floating on a Melody / Muzik Reviews
Christopher Boscole’s work is a living tapestry of sound. Each note is a colorful thread interwoven to create a masterpiece that enraptures the soul and relaxes the mind. The journey through this album was like a breath of fresh air after dealing with the working day world. Just a couple of notes and I was hooked. The shoes came off, my eyes closed and I felt pressures of the day slowly being erased. I can’t think of a better compliment than that. If you enjoy neoclassical piano with hints of jazz and many layers of visualization this is an artist you are going to want in your collection.

“Floating On A Melody” is the title track for this album and with good reason. The deliberate and majestic piano playing carries you off on a journey across the water. Waves crest and you sail freely across rippling pools of music and sound. Mermaids dance alongside your boat and you move with the tide. Ebb and flow. With each touch of the keys, Boscole crafts images that take you into a world beyond the constraints of everyday living.

The ship sets sail on the title track, which departs the dock with effortless grace, picking up momentum and leaving a joyous melody in its wake. As mentioned above, a sense of gliding on the water is often conveyed in his music, especially this track. However, back on dry land, a song entitled “Country Dawn” paints a more pastoral picture that conjures an image of the sun rising – bright and full of promise on a brand new morning. By contrast, “Waves Of Twilight” reflects the other end of the arc of a day, where energy begins to settle and the last rays of a once brilliant sun give way to the deepening shadows of the night.

Grander vistas are evoked in a piece called “To Travel The Multiverse,” which like the title track gives a feeling of sailing, yet the view out this porthole is more likely to be a sea of stars. The celestial theme carries over into “A Distant Universe,” although stylistically quite different. In this piece, Christopher opens with a sense of spaciousness that evolves into denser clusters and cascades of notes, eliciting a vision of galaxies stretching out into eternity. As much as I have a personal affinity for all things cosmic, I’d have to say that one of my favorite tracks on the album was “Peace Of Imagination.” It is sometimes difficult to put subjective impressions into words, but its dreamy ambiance has a quality that feels both far away, yet deeply internal at the same time. Whatever words are used to describe it, on a feeling level, I found it quite touching.

“The Knight Returns” brought me into the book world where I spend much of my life. Sir Lancelot walking through a wooded patch of land gets a glimpse of the fair Guinever  and his heart is lost forever. Secret embraces hidden passions rule this piece. Bittersweet and full of longing, the protector becomes the hunter in a game of politics, betrayal and love. The sensual harmonies in this piece take you into the land of fairy tales and legends as your heart constricts over longing for forbidden love and holding a secret that could save you and at the same time destroy everything you hold dear.

Unraveling the sounds in this album was like unwrapping a Christmas present. The sounds were smooth, the composition flawless and the harmonies inspirational. “Vous Revoir” is one of my favorite pieces. The beginning spirals out like a pool of liquid art reaching across the landscape of my senses. Think ballet of the mind. The soul reaching toward the sun and finding all the light you would ever need. That is what this piece of music reminds me of. Simple beauty on the outside, but the deeper you look, the more clusters of magic abound. The elegant fingering of the piano keys was like a brush of a hand across my cheek and it made my heart smile.
