Five years after Flow, Tokyo-based sound artist and producer Atsuhito Omori aka Ex Confsion announced the release of a new album. I Remember When is out on March 22nd via n5md. It finds him carefully carving music out of hazy memories. As the press release reports, Omori excels at his brand of heart to hands clouded ambient by utilizing faded repetition with ghostly percolating guitars printed to old formats.
Omori has been doing this type of minimalist modern compositional ambient for nearly a decade but never has it sounded so focused in its conception. As a bonus to an album of such understated beauty Omori includes a recent collaboration with Thomas Meluch’s Benoit Pioulard pseudonym which further adds to the faded photograph characteristics of “I Remember When.” “I Remember When” is out March 22nd on limited edition 180gram grey vinyl and compact disc.
“Tears” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
