Mimicof - Distant Symphony [Karlrecords 093 Promo]

Put out on the circuit via the long-standing Karlrecords label as their 093 on June 10th, 2k22 is "Distant Symphony", the latest album outing by Berlin-based Japanes composer Midori Hirano a.k.a. Mimicof. Rolled out over three pieces and a total playtime of roughly 34 minutes Mimicof caters an extended exploration of the scarce and elusive EMS SYNTHI100 instrument she approached as a resident artist at Electronic Studio Radio Belgrade in early June of 2k21, bringing out the devices more experimental side with curious retrofuturist bleeps accompanied by widescreen cinematic dronings and beautiful harmonic layers brought forth in the opening piece that is "Distant Symphony I" whereas the subsequent "Distant Symphony II" serves a glistening ecstatic AmbientRave approach which only lacks an appropriate beat foundation to send punters to a next level of peak time euphoria before "Distant Symphony III" dabbles in epic glacial Ambient streams and expansive chord progressions probably influenced by classical organ composition accompanied by slow pulses of almost physical low end movements to carve out a most tender and solemn piece of timeless beauty and contemplative quality. Highly recommended.
