Miki Yui - Aperio! [Hallow Ground Promo]

Scheduled for release on September 25th, 2k20 via Switzerland-based label Hallow Ground is "Aperio!", the new seven tracks and 35 minutes spanning album outing by now Düsseldorf / Germany-based Japanese artist Miki Yui. With a title derived from the Latin word 'aperire' which translates to 'to open' or 'to reveal' and quite cryptic titles we see the minimalist-leaning composer leading us into a sonic world comprised of ever morphing, droning Ambient pulses paired with somewhat outerworldly, dreamlike and well psychedelic atmospheres, electroacoustic bleeps, tender Clicks'n'Cuts and carefully sculpted, slightly dubbed out rhythm signatures, brittle Cold Ambient / Isolationist Ambient transmissions as well as intimate, stripped down Electronica alongside what seem to be re-processed Field Recordings and beyond, presenting a fascinating glimpse into a rich and thrilling universe of sound that surely has way more to offer than what the tracks on this beautifully varied and well recommended longplay outing can ever cover within this relatively short timeframe. We're up for a sequel in quick succession.
