Lila 04:46


Kei Watanabe (Sri Lanka/Japan) performs ghostly mystifying and electrifying improvisations of found instruments, shuffling loops and odd occurrences. A minimal combination of voice, bells, stringed instruments and electric hums.

This first album is a collection of tracks composed between 2017 and 2021 in Colombo and Berlin.
While recording Kei's sessions in Berlin, we tried to keep her way of working and recording as close as possible from her original style and sound (in Colombo with a cassette recorder, effects and a looper, in Berlin with a computer, looper and some more effects) but without entirely creating a carbon copy of her previous compositions.
