Sleepland is the project of Japanese sound artist Kengo Yonemura. His sound is mainly based around guitar and synthesiser as well as the use of some field recordings. Transition/Composition is the new album which is out now via Whitelabrecs. Full streaming is available via Bandcamp. Listen below.
Transition/Composition was recorded in the comfort of his home town between 2012 and 2017. This album in fact consists of two different albums merged into one: ‘Transition’ is three mid/longform drones with longer track titles, whereas ‘Composition’ is made up of eight short form pieces with shorter names. The two albums overlap as they play, with each of the separate recordings folding into one. Not only are the recordings buried inside the mix but the track titles for ‘Transition’ are also embedded within those of ‘Composition’.
