Ms Shvangiradze's first album is a gem! Her musical tones meld into a perfect blend of classic and relaxing sounds with a distinct European flair. The delicate, yet full sounds each have a soothing and seductive lilt. Each composition is magnificently multi-layered, the work of a seasoned and experienced musician and composer. Sometimes, she even uses vocals and sound effects as layers in her compositions, making creative and expressive musical moments.

This album is perfect for background music, but it is also so much more. Ms Shvangiradze's talent fills each lyrical and meaningful moment to the brim, and so it deserves a serious assessment as well. This album is well worth it!

Among my favorite piano players on SoundCloud is Miranda Shvangiradze, whose music is influenced by my favorite genres and styles: classical, jazz, modern pop rock and electronic pop music. Besides the mentioned styles, Miranda also explores such genre as Georgian folk, which is due to her roots - she grew up in Georgia, Eastern Europe.

While growing up, Miranda wanted to become a piano teacher but after graduating from Kutaisi music college she changed her focus to foreign language. After moving to the United States, and becoming familiar with digital instruments and audio recording software, Miranda releases her debut album "Ready For The Trip?", the album presently being reviewed.

"Ready for the Trip?" begins with the stylish and upbeat title track. Jungle groove and its syncopated melody are skillfully arranged into a dialogue of a piano and an accordion, transporting the listener to a modern French street. Different instruments add their own variations on the original motif, and along with the repetitive melody it is a charming track which literally feels like the beginning of a trip.

"Sun In Cold Water", the 2nd track, starts with a leading piano playing a haunting, dreamy motif. As the piece progresses, Shamisen (a Japanese instrument) joins the piano, playing Eastern motifs and creating the mood that is very appropriate to the title: you can feel the clear sounds of water. I found that the hip-hop influenced beat with a Latin twist lifts the track to another level of creativity. It was daring, tasteful and very modern.

I've really enjoyed this music! Miranda has a wonderful way with keyboard instruments. Her melodic phrasing is so well balanced and pleasing to the ear. I find her music to be truly music of the "World". It varies in influence from French to Asian to African in both melody and rhythm. Each listening brings new textures and moods. I would recommend her music most highly. . .

This is a collection of finest instrumental music from artist Mira Shvangiradze ... her music is modern, relaxing and uplifting. What makes this music so special is the slightest touch of whistfulness, adding a depth wich is far beyond average ambient music ... melodies that go straight to your heart!
