Editorial Reviews

Neo Ambient Post Meditative (CD)
Are We Here, Are We Long Gone?
To close 2016, Chekalin just released his 49th album containing perhaps the most powerful and heartfelt music he has made to date.. It features two major compositions NeoAmbient (PostSymphony #15) and PostMeditative (PostSymphony #16) followed by Epilogue. It also includes the album title track Are We Here, Are We Long Gone? along with two short tracks with impressionistic voice Postsong-1 & Postsong-2.
As Chekalin describes it, the album sounds like an echo of the seventies when I made my start, which is why the musical timbres I use reflect that epoch creating the feeling and spirit of my early meditative compositions. The two short melodic PostSong harmonics are reminiscent of the English rock songs I listened to at that time. In a sense this album contains music offering listeners my feelings about that magnificent age of great expectations; we still of course had anxieties, but also had hopes that all the problems and discord we experienced could be alleviated by the more wonderful and artistic expressions of music.
Having been aware of Mikhail Cheklain’s work, both musically and artistically since the late 1970’s, I would have to say that his musical diversity, creativity and stylistic range are breathtaking. Perhaps no work, by a modern composer after this long of a time making music has carried such a powerful impact as his NeoAmbient PostMeditative album.
Musically, it’s a beautiful homage to Chekalin's past as well as a deeply emotional listening experience by someone who very clearly is a master musician and artist who can still conjure up his muse after all these years. In addition, it's a powerful cultural document of Post Soviet Realist Art and Music by one of Russia's long time great artists.
