Tengger’s Itta has made a triumphant return with the beautifully ethereal Eyewalk, on Aural Canyon Records.
Released last Friday on cassette and digital, this record features the Seoul, South Korea-based ambient musician creating the most angelic of soundscapes with just her voice and a Yamaha SY22.
Across the album’s six tracks, Itta utilizes her vocals like an instrument. She takes overdubs of her own soft, breathy singing, drenches them in reverb and stacks them together until she has a ghostly chorus. From there, Itta adds in keyboards to give her voice additional harmonic support, which often leads to a surreal, cyber-human like sound.
This is perhaps heard the most in the stunning “Strata,” which sounds like something you might hear being sung in a cathedral two hundred years from now.
Chilled, perhaps a little haunting, but always beautifully moving, Eyewalk is an ambient album that you won’t soon forget. Click here to get your copy from Aural Canyon today.
