Mike Sayre Gets Deep With New Album “Music for Icebergs”
Throughout life, there are going to be many times when creating head space will be very necessary. Whether it is coming home to decompress after a long day, closing your eyes on a commute to work, or just relaxing on a quiet Sunday, meditation can be a very useful tool. Lately, I have been trying to introduce more meditation into my life and have found that it’s rather difficult to do without the aid of some type of sonic guide. That’s where I have found a great use for ambient music and the art of Mike Sayre.
Mike Sayre creates haunting, atmospheric music for film and other media. His work fuses elements of modern cinematic scoring with ambient and acoustic techniques. Mike has a new album entitled Music For Icebergs that is out now and definitely worth a listen.
Music for Icebergs is the soundtrack for a changing world. Inspired by the windswept ice shelves of Antarctica, this cinematic music pays tribute to a place that is transforming before our eyes. Part of the proceeds will be donated to organizations that fight climate change.
This daring and noteworthy work has an enormous sense of depth that is simultaneously comforting and spine-tingling. As the title suggest Sayre’s latest album seems to press on with the same impending finality and gravity of wandering iceberg. Concentrating on creating the immense and emotional soundscapes, Sayre displays is incredible ability to make riveting music with such a unique approach. Close your eyes and allow this album to wash over you, taking you deep into the depths of your own heart, soul, and mind.
Mike grew up in Elkhart, IN, studying the French Horn, voice, and guitar. He holds degrees in music for digital media from Ball State University and french horn performance from Rutgers. He now works as a freelance composer and performer in New York City.
