Sower of Wind by Philadelphia post-metal band Rosetta, is an overwhelmingly deep journey into the soul of the band itself. An inverted masterpiece of lush and dark ambient/post-rock with unfurling melancholic guitars and warm piano sparsely placed throughout. This album is just as immersive and fraught with emotion as their heavier works.
Bruno Sanfilippo is a contemporary composer with a focus on beautiful piano music, sound sculpture and ambience. The music itself will make you cry, feel happy, sleepy, pensive and introspective as the gorgeous passages float easily through the mind/body. His albums could very well be some of the most important works in the genre and it is imperative that music fans of this style spend some quality time with his aural dreamworlds

This literal sonic orchestra will sweep you off your feet, and by the time you reach “The Upper Sky” you will be filled with so much emotion that you will beg for its release, the rest of the album grants just that. And the listener floats on the relief and is lifted to a higher realm.
Fading easily into the scenic background, “Music to Disappear” by Perry Frank is the sort of album that truly can’t be categorized into a single genre or mood. The music wanders from glorious new age swells all the way to progressive rock elements and truly uplifting neo-classical arrangements with some traditional Italian flair.
Italian composer Nino Martino’s “Colonne sonore per gli specchi”, is filled with drama and tension as the strings and light cinematic arrangements move the listener with powerful emotion. Although the music is exciting it exudes a pensive calm and inspires deep thought.
Frames by Mote is an uplifting modern classical album that comes across as light at the end of the tunnel, hope in an otherwise hopeless world. The music never sways too far into melancholy but you can feel it, and the contemplative nature of the string arrangements are both thought provoking and moving.
A minimalistic tone approaches like an interdimensional entity or apparatus, seemingly silent, awakening with a blast of earthy orchestral might cutting through the curious soundscape, communicating it’s true purpose for the visit. Coming in at 42:57, Linear Bells “Over & Over” is a truly epic drone based contemporary classical album.
