Nika Son presents a radiophonic submersion into oceanic rasp and heave, meshes of synth tones, and displaced voices that intone a dismembered, claustrophobic sea story. Released as an edition of 50 pro-dubbed cassettes.
Surfacing underneath you sea asu lapis
Trying to imagine being underneath a liquid that we call water while clutching to a metal ledge of a big concrete building with air in my lungs.
Sensing water in your ears and eyes. Being split by water. Thoughts astray.
Algaic groaning gulping machines touching the liquid surface. Outer voices uttering in displaced languages. Who are you I am? Sinking. Waves floating over and under. Listening to antartic krill that sway to and fro. Emerging. Walking over oceanic noise, turning the page.
Your ears on surfaces.
