— Sylvain Lupari, Synth and Sequences
PORTLAND, OR, USA, August 6, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The Zone Music Reporter has announced the winners of the 2020 ZMR Music Awards, which are decided by global broadcasters who report to the music chart. Winner of the Best Ambient Album honor is multi-instrumentalist and composer Michael Allison, who composed, performed, engineered, mixed and produced A Day Like Any Other, his eleventh release as Darshan Ambient for renowned ambient electronic record label Spotted Peccary Music; the album was mastered by Ben Cox. A co-winner in the category, due to tied votes, was Pleides by Christel Veraart.

Celebrating the many moments that make an ordinary life special, A Day Like Any Other is a delightful and positive work, overflowing with hopeful energy and infused with the distinctive Darshan Ambient style. The music washes over the listener, soothing the mind and lifting spirits to a realm of brighter dreams and better days. Michael Allison passed away on January 9, 2020 in Modesto, CA; today would have been his birthday, and this album was his final gift of music to the world.

Sylvain Lupari of Synth and Sequences wrote, "For a reason that I never know, the music of Darshan Ambient has always had an attractive power on my emotions...there is a vision of tenderness and imperturbable romance..."

Elegant and uplifting, A Day Like Any Other is generous with rhythm and up-front percussion, providing an easy-going mood that keeps the music moving forward throughout the album’s eleven track journey. The music percolates with life as carefree melodies weave their way through rhythmic synth patterns, pulsing strings, electric guitar, piano, and ambient textures. Like previous Darshan Ambient works, A Day Like Any Other places an emphasis on melody and structure that results in an effortless and deeply enjoyable listening experience. A Day Like Any Other paints a marvelous musical picture, from the glorious easy groove of the album’s opener “City Of The Seven Hymns” through the triumphant final notes of the closing track “The Republic Of Dreams.”

A Day Like Any Other is available for physical purchase in CD format and in 24-BIT AUDIOPHILE, CD QUALITY LOSSLESS, MP3 and streaming formats. The award-winning CD version of A DAY LIKE ANY OTHER is bright and uplifting, making an excellent gift, arriving in a sleek factory sealed 6-panel gatefold package that includes artwork, liner notes, and a four-page booklet elegantly designed by Daniel Pipitone.

Spotted Peccary will celebrate Michael Allison's birthday on Saturday, August 7th with a Bandcamp "Name Your Price" promotion of another of his albums, Falling Light.
