Wanderlust #76: Kōgen
26 July 2021
This is a teaser. For the whole album, head over to Bandcamp
Following his contributions to some of our very first releases, O-Ma returns on Ōtium and joins forces with Pierre Montagnon for Kōgen, a tape & digital duo album.
Recorded in Tokyo during 2020 lockdown, Kōgen embraces current post-apocalyptic world-setting. Across the 8 tracks and an additional 20 mn live recording, the few broken club influences and hopeful ethereal pads get occluded by industrial field-recordings elements, eerie drones and noise textures.
Slowly crafted in an analog & modular synthesis environment, the album tracks all comes from re-arranged improvised live session. The 20mn recording that ends the release (Bandcamp digital bonus only) gives the opportunity to dive in the original composition setting of the album.
