New Claudio Merlini CD Release.

The first AD Music release for 2012 is Claudio Merlini’s “Enchantment” and the Italian maestro serves up more of his melodic, Tangerine Dream style electronic music. The album consists of 14 gently rhythmic instrumental music tracks plus two bonus tracks, both remixes of the title track, one by Claudio and the other by David Wright.  Full details can be found on the AD Music website along with soundbites.

(Total album time 70.38)

Music composed, arranged, performed and Produced by Claudio Merlini.
Executive Producer and Digital Mastering – David Wright

“Enchantment” is an expertly crafted and original multi-layered, electronic music opus that at times reminds one of Tangerine Dream circa “Exit” with its style, mood and hauntingly beautiful themes. As with Claudio’s previous releases, there are occasional world music influences provided by delicate vocal layers, but these are subtle and never overdone. The instrumental music is melodic and atmospheric with gently drifting rhythms and a wonderful depth and feel that demands repeated listens.

Claudio’s music has similar emotional sensibilities to AD Music stalwarts David Wright and Bekki Williams, so its easy to see why the Italians maestros music is proving so popular. It will appeal to lovers of quality melodic new age and electronic music, and as well as being mastered and co-produced by David Wright, he also pitches in with a remix of the title track. Fans of TD, Vangelis and Jarre should also find this of interest.

“A superb melodic instrumental music album”.

Release date is 14th February for CD and MP3 and Flac download.
