Michael Allison was unique in the genre of keyboard-driven, melodic ambience as well as a wonderful person. There was always a gentleness pervasive in all his works. I discovered Michael at MP3.com decades ago. I was a supporter & promoter of his music via MP3.com's New-Music-Army. Back then, he was simply called Darshan but for some reason had to change his moniker to Darshan Ambient. I highly recommend his earliest releases on the MP3.com & Zero Music labels. After that I also recommend his The Zen Master's Diary release. I found his other releases to be more "busy" with less simple uninhibited melody, delays, echoes and drones. I never have liked when Darshan Ambient decided to add string instruments and obvious rhythms & beat-driven compositions. His best was when his music sounded like watching sunlit curtains moving in a gentle summer breeze while watching dust motes dance in the aura of a magical moment. That was the real Darshan . . . so sorry he has passed . . .

Im just surprised no one has reviewed any of Darshan's works up to date. So it is then, I think his music is worth listening a bit. Ive discovered his stuff when mp3.com was quite known in growing mp3 world, that was 2001 or something like that. And up to date his stuff is a essential definition of what modern and classical ambient music should sound like. It has this warm flow, beautiful and peaceful melodics and harmonics, almost like from kind of fairy tales. If any of you wishes be relaxed, shake off tension collected during you hard working day - this music is for you, no matter which album actually. Make some efforts and find one of his works, THIS IS how ambient music should sound!
