Mikronesia is composer and electronic musician Michael McDermott. In a River the Color of Lead opens with Unfolder, a nearly-20-minute journey with waves of piano, organ, and synthesizers that organically create intricate, cascading melodies. The following three works showcase a much more introspective and delicate compositional style, with Mikronesia using acoustic piano processed via iPad and computer. There is a stillness to these pieces that complements the density of Unfolder, and by the time Sotapanna concludes, there's a real sense of closure for the EP, decidedly Mikronesia's most personal musical expression to date. Edition of 273.
