BRIEF DESCRIPTION: "Umi no drone" (Drones of the sea) is an epic work of deeply emotional/dramatic drones. Starting from total silence to an organic soundscapes and droning atmospheres that remind us the underwater life. Perfect for some intense headphone listening, late nights, an album for those who seek a more unusual experience.
COVER ART: MiMi Records


«“Umi no drone” (Drones of the sea) by Hakoneko, released on mimi, is a set of drones using various elements of the sea as a metaphor, and reminds me in many ways of Biosphere’s Autour De La Lune. The soundscapes are sombre, slowly evolving, low frequency pieces. The titles for each track work well as directions for the imagination of the listener, helping to make the experience more vivid, such as Plankton and Jellyfish.
“Umi no drone” makes for delicate listening, I found it suits headphones and a quiet environment. Hakoneko manages to make these drones encourage calm and contemplative thoughts, rather than the texturally rich and emotionally dry drone-based music that seems to be common lately>.»

<Sechs ambiente und sehr minimalistische Lieder, von denen das vierte stark an Sachen von Stahlwerk 9 erinnert. Es wäre wirklich erstklassig, wenn Hakoneki in dieser Richtung weiterhin etwas produzieren würde. Die Leistung dieser Veröffentlichung schmälert das natürlich nicht. Besonderes wird man hier nicht finden, aber es hört sich einfach gut an.>.

>Minimal and dark atmospheres.
It's minimal/dark time again. I love dark droning pieces like this and this is no exception. Needs to be listened in full and with a lot of attention, so you can savor each dark driplet of sound. Or, you can just put it in the background, drone away and do something else beside it, like studying or reading. That's what I'm doing now and however you listen to it, it works fine either way. Thumbs up!>
