New Music Critique: Martin Mayer


Classically trained Martin Mayer has the chops to bring his bright, bouncy material to life. “Unbreakable” is propelled by rhythmic synths and horns that allow Mayer to tickle the ivories in a way that is familiar to anyone who’s heard a TV theme tune. The piano is again primary as “Whistler” picks up the pace and delivers an interesting mid-section before returning to its catchy hook, which would work well on a video- game’s end-credit roll. “The Mission” is introspective and otherworldly at first, but then morphs into a dramatic, rousing and descriptive theme that suggests Cirque du Soleil. Mayer seems to have a mainstream ear and the skills to render smooth, catchy, vanilla-sweet instrumental music.
