2 in stock
LP: 12″ uncoated jacket, 2pp insert, translucent green vinyl. Limited to 200 copies only.
kotonoha is ironomi’s 8th album and first ever release on vinyl. A tonal portrait of microscopic nuances particular of a Japanese midsummer saunter through deep emerald green forests and tranquil fields, transcribed into a meditative pastoral reverie created with crystalline piano playing, lute acoustics and real-time processing.
The title kotonoha (琹の葉) comes from a poetic anachronistic metaphor, combining form of leaves (葉 ha) and plucked string instruments (琹 koto) depicted in classical antiquity. With a distinctive sound that matches the sonic architecture of Japanese aesthetics, ironomi adds kotonoha into their extensive catalog already defined by its uniquely committed minimalism and serenity.
