Fuji||||||||||ta - Iki [Hallow Ground Promo]

Put on the circuit via Switzerland-based label Hallow Ground on April 3rd, 2k20 is "Iki", the new album outing by Japanese artist Fujita Yosuke a.k.a. Fuji||||||||||ta. Rolled out over the course of 36 minutes the unpronounceable and search engine defying artist dedicates the four tracks on this longplayer solely to the sonic realms created by his self-built eleven pipe organ driven and controlled by an emulation of a blacksmith's air pump instead of a keyboard with the opening piece "Keshiki" revealing the warm, organic and well comforting melancholia this unique instrument has to offer, providing ever progressing, all embracing melodies alongside the continuous mechanical clicks and movements of its motor. The subsequent "Nnami" caters a darker approach in pairing the organ melodies with an ever present, slightly brooding drone wave alongside steady, hypnotic tonal changes, "Osoi" follows on an intimate path of warm harmonic layerings whereas the concluding "Sukrima" presents a more playful compositional approach which seems to lean towards Classical / (Neo)Classical techniques and formal notation rather than focusing on ever progressing layers of sound and ambient'ish vibes.
