Except for some nu-jazz trumpeting and vague drumming (and what sounds a little like an organ), most of the music is made up of electobeeps and sonic sweeps.

I have recently discovered that there are some songs with solos in them that sound just like the harmonica, but are actually being played on a melodica, which is an instrument with a 2-3 octave piano style keyboard for choosing notes and a mouthpiece that you blow into to make the sound.
I don't think the melodica is used too much for deep and gutsy blues playing, but it does seem to show up on some sweeter tunes, like an old Motown song called, "Oh, Girl." Anyway, I just wanna know if anyone out there has any experience playing one of these instruments.

 Review of the Hohner Melodica - Associated Content
Harmonica-like reeds with air passing over them generate the melodica’s tone.Louder than a harmonica, or many other melodicas for that matter, the HM 32 plays strong from low to high.
And unlike smaller melodicas, the HM 32 lets the user grow into it, rather that out of it; players can start with “Mary Had a Little Lamb” and work their way up to Bach’s cello suites.This particular model has some playing quirks, though.
Inflection and emotion can be instinctively worked into any performance when the melodica depends solely on the player’s breath.As is often the case with both melodicas and harmonicas, the reeds can fall out of tune, or can develop a buzz, even before the player ever plays the instrument.

 CD Baby: NEIL ZAZA: Melodica
It was actually a combination of old school and new school technology that aided in the initial process of logging the tunes for Melodica.
With a slew of ideas logged and demoed, most of the final versions of the songs on Melodica were collaborations between Alan D'Entremont and myself (with an occasional hand from songwriter John Tanner).
And that's what Melodica was all about to me: merging the new school with the old and hopefully coming up with something that will prove enduring for years to come.

His next release for the same producer (who gave him the Augustus Pablo stage name) was the prototype 'Far East' sound of 'East Of The River Nile'.
