SILENO A short but gorgeous album of experimental ambient music based around the concept of the life of a teenager. Daily life, thoughts and memories are turned atmospheric synths, glitched up vocals, hazy guitar and melancholic song sections with curious field recordings and effects blended in for added mystery or subtle tension :) Favorite track: Fugue Side A.

Iku presents her debut longform work "Fugue: Some Temporal Patterns Other Than the Forward March" on Genot Centre. The listener might imagine theirself in a teenage bedroom, suddenly realizing their frame of reference is arbitrary, surrounded by a vast, unknown space that is neither inside or outside. On closer inspection, the familiar objects that inhabit the room seem made of alien materials. Sometimes, a familiar sound appears, but there is something uncanny; how much of this sound memory is real? Using inventive, associative sampling a new vocabulary arises, an intimate trompe l'oreille, an impossible object where components blend, their boundaries becoming fuzzy - where it is no longer clear where one object ends and another one begins.
"Fugue" is a multi-component musing on recursive timelines, non-linear appearances and knotted self-modifying patterns. The construction and internal logic is suggestive of the never-ending process of correction, necessitated by the realisation that one-time lucid narratives turn out to be pure falsifications in retrospect. About an eternal unfolding, a continuous new creation of new spaces, new frames, new rooms to make sense of new realisations and contradictions, in her words a "repetition ~ leading back to its own beginning, initiating its own interruption, its own standstill. Immanent and intrinsic becoming, simultaneously frightening and comforting ~ a cheerful failure."
