Sleeping With Fractals

Review by Windhawk

3 stars UK project ONTOFIELD is the moniker used by composer and musician John Graham for his musical endavours. Work commenced on the first album using this moniker in 2012, and in the summer of 2013 the end result was released as Ontofield's debut album "Sleeping With Fractals".

Melodic, accessible progressive rock that first and foremost appears to have been inspired by 70's symphonic art rock and late 80's neo progressive is what John Graham's Ontofield project explores on the debut album "Sleeping With Fractals". A production that should appeal towards a broad audience, with fans of bands like Pendragon and Spock's Beard a likely key audience.

4 stars Ontofield is a one man project by John Graham, and this is the debut CD. The music(according to John) is "different styles in different songs and could be described simply as rock with a progressive edge, but really draws influences from an eclectic range. The recommended way to arrive on a view of the work of Ontofield is to give it a listen and make your own mind up. In other words; listen to it, if you like it, that's good." I knew the very first time I played this that I liked it a great deal, but it took a while longer for me to finally get a handle on what it most reminded me of, which is early Nineties Pendragon. To be fair, that probably has more to do with the vocals and guitar than the overall feel, as the keyboards are very different to that of Clive, which gives the band a very interesting musical perspective.

Not content with just channeling good vibrant British prog, there are large elements of Tangerine Dream in what is being produced, with Vangelis and Floyd also getting a look in. But, although there are times when Ontofield almost come over as a keyboard band, there are also plenty when the guitars are right at the forefront and others where they combine to deliver something that is dramatic and powerful. This is progressive rock music that actually contains both elements, and doesn't just concentrate on demonstrating just how clever the musician is, but also remembers that this is about entertainment and certainly listening to this there is more than enough to enjoy on first hearing with more to be taken from the music with repeated plays.

This doesn't seem like a solo project, as there is a real band feel (and the drums don't sound programmed!), and it is certainly worthy of further investigation. For more details on the band then visit

Sleeping With Fractals
Ontofield Crossover Prog

Review by PH

5 stars 'Sleeping With Fractals' is the first album from ONTOFIELD which deserves a lot of attention. How do I start to describe this prog-masterpiece? Well. If you are looking for a new outfit with a fresh innovative approach, then search no longer. Ontofield has arrived! If you appreciate the likes of Paul McCartney, Pink Floyd, Supertramp, 10 cc, Marillion (Fish era), Pendragon, Transatlantic, Morphelia, RPWL and Frost, then you should find much to enjoy in John Graham's musical performance. It contains over an hour of eclectic charm and ranges from numerous pieces of sublime fragility to harder hitting sections. Fabulous synths intertwined with quirky rhythm section and concise cello. Agile guitar style can remind of Steve Vai. On the whole content is fairy enticing yet explosive, mixed with various sound effects. This CD combines exceptionally coherent songwriting with engrossing lyrics. The smooth vocals add some extra flavour. And I'd say that 'Sleeping With Fractals' has an inexplicable attraction, which makes you play it over and over again. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Thanks to windhawk for the artist addition.
