Demo Tracks and Info

Adagiometry No. 1

AD Music is pleased to announce ‘Adagiometry’, a series of 5 EP length (20 minute) ‘download only’ releases from Andy Pickford.

Forming part of the same large archive of high quality, unreleased music from which the ‘Vanguard’ CD album series has been taken, the feel of ‘Adagiometry’ is more towards acoustic orchestral and chill-out, as well as the usual backdrops of filmic electronica.

In total, this 5 ep set contains around 100 minutes of wonderfully indulgent, finely-crafted music no AP collection will be complete without.

The moods throughout the 5 ep series are both relaxing and highly emotive with top notch production values and tongue in cheek cover art, also supplied by AP. The Adagiometry ep series further illustrates the depth and quality of Andy Pickford’s repertoire.

This EP is only available to download. Check out our FAQ page for more information.

    Review from Synth & Sequences
    The movement is slow. Like an adagio among which the delicate synth layers which slowly get out of breath are wrapped up in sumptuous orchestrations. “Adagiometry 1” sets the tone to this fascinating sonic booklets which the English label AD Music sells, in downloadable format only, for the most great pleasure of Andy Pickford’s fans. In all, it’s 5 volumes that Andy Pickford proposes and which will follow the air of time and the big comeback of this musician whose eccentricity is equaled only of his immense composer’s talent. This series brings out the very film approach of the English musician and this floods our ears from the first seconds of “Adagiometry 1”. The arrangements are as well soft as heart-rending and the effects of emotional intensity follow the curve of a title which could very well be thought of as a classic piece of music, so much the effect of orchestration and the voices are well crafted. We have gooseflesh! If I understand well the sense of this “Adagiometry Vol. 1”, the music should follow this bend of semi slow rhythm which defines the emotional characters of music for films. Thus “The Line” is as much intense with its film approach which fits admirably be well with a movie about 1001 tales and legends of the Arab world. Here the approach is more electronic, more intense also, with layers of violins which are closer to a synth dimension that those in “Adagiometry 1” who have a more acoustic tone. The chords of keyboard are rolling like those pearls that we make slip through our fingers, laying down a ghost melody which drowns itself in the heaviness and the slowness of the orchestrations effects. Intense and moving! The extremely melodious approach of Andy Pickford is more present in the very beautiful “Emerald Beach”. It’s a nice cosmic slow dance with keyboard chords which pearl like those of a nostalgic piano in a music misted by melancholy. The level of emotionalism is as much pronounced as in the first two titles but with an electronic touch which is more elaborated than that of “The Line”. That gives me in fact actually the taste to throw me in Adagiometry Vol. 2. I’ll soon write about it too!
