A musical trip in five tracks from “Awakening” to “Illusion,” from one dream to the next – perhaps evoking the lucid state of lack of sleep associated with extensive touring, as this album was recorded during Unii’s 2015 European tour.
Unii is a singer, songwriter, electronic music composer (ambient, avant-garde pop) from Northern island of Sapporo city, Hokkaido, Japan. Her soft yet powerful voice mixed with electronic sound music has aptly been described as post-Bjork, but also bears some kinship with the work of her countrywoman Tujiko Noriko. Unii has been performing live not only in Japan but also in Europe and Asia, such as Singapore, Vietnam and China. This album combines her improvised vocals and sparse synthetic textures with EMERGE’s snarling, grating metal sounds that eventually morph into something akin to bird song or other animal sonics.
