As soon as the piano kicks in on this track, I knew I would love this album. It is haunting in the way it evokes emotions and while a darker album, this music still brings me peace to listen to it. I have recommended Qualia to many friends.
Favorite track: Circles.
As the title suggests, Melancholia is the the darkest sounding album in the Qualia catalogue so far. Sparse atmospheres and noise punctuate much of the album, focusing more in distorted textures and (mostly) departing from the piano-led music established on the previous 'Vignettes' and 'Ecliptic' releases.
A limited amount of CDs will be available for purchase.
