This is Akiko Kiyama's 4th full-length album, stemming from two years of exploration outside her established dance floor inclinations, boiling down her sound to its essential organic grooves, intricate harmonies and eery atmospheres.
The nature of her organic grooves lies within inter-sound gaps, carefully crafted to lead the listener through time distortions and into an hypnotic solitary world where music is breathed, not played. A sound imprinted of a definitely human character and vigor, yet sometimes ambiguous, fleeting, and capricious.
From her peculiar sense of harmony and rhythm, and a meticulous minimal approach to composition, emerges rich lyrical lines forming a unique musical universe that few has had the chance to hear yet. All composition performed, recorded and produced by Akiko Kiyama. "Ophelia", Newmud", "Bridge The Divide", "Blue Cat", and "Golden Orbs" featuring vocals from live performance by Varya Pavlova aka Lisokot.
