4 stars Vibrant layers of long , almost static, string melody lines which by multiple addition counterpoint each one's harmonics and moods.

5 variations + a single composition conform this 2014, Marvin Ayres's "Ultradian Rhythms".

The symphonic focus, presented in his 2012 "Harmogram Suite" continues, but his music composition approach favors abstraction over "friendly melodies", not by sounding obtuse, opposite to that by sounding far more universal, thus each composition beholds a varied range of simultaneous emotions which may appeal to different listeners' likings the same simultaneously.

The imperceptible and perfectly recorded multitude of layers of strings reveal this album's compositions undercovered massiveness and deserve full attention and at least one headphone run to sense their true width, depth and range.

Its last track, "Ultradian", is closer in spirit to electronic/prog in a quiet refreshing and unorthodox (very Marvin Ayres') way, for the genre of course.

The kind of music that makes you thank being alive, the kind which is worth experiencing and better yet owning. Hats off to Mr. Ayres!

****4.5 PA stars.
