Admo Kenji Kihara has crafted a stunning sonic experience. All the hypnotic and sublime grandeur of a midsummer's afternoon, as if watching clouds drift lazily over a meadow. Favorite track: End of Summer.

**Vinly is available from Tomentosa in the US**

"Kenji Kihara is a musician based in Hayama, Japan, a place surrounded by nature near the sea and the mountains. Kenji makes field recordings around his home and integrates these into his lush, drifting compositions. He says, “I am making music as an inspiration for seasonal change, day to day importance.” Kenji imbues his compositions with the tone and timbre of the landscape of his home. There is acute attention to make all of the pieces breathe as elements come in and out, ebb and flow. There is a reverence for natural beauty and the natural pace of the non-human world. While not all of the compositions on this collection are in dialogue with summer, it is still fitting to release the album in summer as it it bookended with two pieces evocative of a warm breeze on a light summer evening."
