[Premiere] Luis Miehlich – Koyomi (Forthcoming 1.1.19)

A calendar of imperfections. 

-Serene soundscape creator Luis Miehlich at a critical, yet defining moment.

Following Luis Miehlich (Woolookologie’s) recent earth-moving inspiring album, Silences, on the Archives music label, Luis continues where he left off by telling intricate stories through sonic, wavy sounds and drifting ambient haze for meditation & relaxation.

A more personal piece at the center, “Koyomi” represents Luis’ latest set of gifts to the world. Erder returns with a guest feature for ‘October 04‘.

Hear the breathtaking ‘March 12‘ taken from forthcoming “Koyomi” below. The full release drops January 1, 2019.

Making the story more personal, here are some words of sheer visionary context from Luis:

In late 2017, I dusted off my hardware setup and started making a few pieces with it again (now released with last year’s “winter collection“), which was a lot of fun and made me want to try making a full length project with it. 

Winter Collection ’17

During my other projects throughout the year, I started recording these pieces, first rather aimlessly, later with more thoughts about concept. They’re all live-sessions, usually made in one sitting and one take, mostly hard to replicate. My methods and approaches changed quite a bit over time, the first pieces were recorded to a Zoom R16, the second half through a hardware mixer onto a single track in Ableton
Some pieces have some
overdubs, some don’t; some are purely electronic, others feature some guitar or other instruments. 
Thank you for listening!
