Every once in awhile, a superbly creative innovator comes out of the woodwork to bring to life a purposeful, musical masterpiece that seeps under your skin and leaves a penetrating mark on your being. Donating a portion of profits to organizations that fight climate change, Mike Sayre has elucidated the intensification of extreme weather through music in a way that is profoundly uncanny.
Providing the impeccably rich healing benefits through the power of resonance, NY Artist, Mike Sayre, has translated an inward experience into a conscious effort to educate listeners of both the prevalence and dangers of climate change inspired by ice shelves disintegrating in Antarctica and crumbling into the sea.
Insinuating the sound effect of a continent on thin ice laced with the crystalline tone of healing, ‘Music for Icebergs’ begins with the mysterious, “Genesis”, that is abounding with calculated precision. Beginning the second track with the tone of “going under”, Mike Sayre creates a feeling of desolation and fear through listener’s ears as harrowing blows of wind and ice suddenly cracking storm over the mind that leaves listeners envisioning an eerie dwelling in the middle of nowhere.
The third track, “Anthropocene”, serves as a mesmerizing and bone-chilling terrain with a remarkable dexterity that is difficult to undermine. “Floes/Flows” is the fourth track that is cunningly entitled and crafted to inform listeners of the extremity of the impact of climate change. Closing elegantly with “Elegy”, Mike Sayre creates the ambiance of the unknown that slows into an unclear drifting into the problematic components that are affecting the world around you.
Representing a level of ingenious artistic achievement unparalleled, ‘Music for Icebergs’ invites immediate appeal through its intentionality, though must not be discredited for its myriad of different forms and lengths along with its contemplative, delicate musical form.
