Up next on Tokyo via Berlin-based experimental platform REITEN is ‘ENSō 2020′ – a compilation showcasing the diverse cast of musicians that were set to perform at the first edition of Ensō Festival, which was set to take place between 10-12 April 2020 until COVID-19 messed those plans up.
‘ENSō 2020′ presents 13 tracks of hyper-experimental and avant-garde music from the likes of Renick Bell, Yves De May, Tobias., ENA, Katsunori Sawa, plus REITEN label founder Kosei Fukuda and Lebanese musician Rabih Beaini.
‘Circle’ is an 8-minute journey through decaying, fractured electro-acoustic soundscapes; tangible dread drips from the peaks of scratched-out frequencies and settles in dark pools of latent fear. The all-encompassing sound design shudders as it encroaches steadily upon a visceral endpoint, wracked with coarse blasts from cursed and manipulated wind instruments.
‘ENSō 2020’ is scheduled for release 24 July via REITEN. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
