Akio Suzuki & Aki Onda - Ke I Te Ki [Room40 Promo]

Released via Room40 on November 2nd, 2k18 is "Ke I Te Ki", the latest three track collaboration album by Akio Suzuki and Aki Onda, recorded in fall 2015 at The Emily Harvey Foundation in New York. Spanning a total album runtime of approx. an hour we see the opening title track clock in at 23+ minutes, presenting an array of scraping and squealing noises as well as spaced out, outerworldly modulations atop a slow moving background bass drone and early morning Ambient arrangements whereas the follow up "Yo Ru No To Ba Ri" weighs in what seem to be slightly reworked Field Recordings of motor sounds or similar alongside decent electronic atmospheres and subaquatic echoes whilst the final cut "Hi Ka Ri" presents a sequence of vintage computational bleeps as a main motif, accompanied by various, not necessarily tempo-tied flute abstractions and eerie, wafting strings alongside disembodied vocals from various sources meandering through the tunes sonic realm even after the whole track is taking a turn towards ultra abstract Jazz and uncomfortably noisy territories around minute ten or so, causing a general feel of tension and unrest, not only because of the unidentifiable utterings seemingly coming from some strange, hell'ish beast of sorts ever present towards the compositions end. Dark.
