"Best-known as the lead singer of Bloody Panda, Yoshiko Ohara is releasing her first solo album.
Ohara composed and recorded all the songs and created all the accompanying album artwork.
Ohara embraced the random in this album, treating her audio material as pure sound rather than attempting to compose logical songs.
First she would write phrases and hooks and then randomly rearrange without listening to the result. During this process, she didn't think how the sounds should be heard with the passage of time.
Using the visual cue of the waveform as it appeared on her computer screen, Ohara rearranged the tracks to create visual tableau that mirrored the imaginary artworks in her head. As such, all the sounds are created by accident, not written as music but created as an art work.
Using a combination of field recordings and synthesizer generated noises Ohara's freshman album merges the painter's eye with the musician's ear taking the listener on a inward journey to a place where those two synaptic impulses merge into one."
