Hush, Tone, Whine (MP3)

A highly recommended eight-minute sound excursion by Japan's Gaapiiiii

With no more than a title (“Color Block”) and a tag (“experimental electronic”), Gaapiiiii‘s recently posted track is a highly recommended eight-minute sound excursion. The main components are a wash of white noise and a synthetically tinged choral hush, along with the peaked-out whine of a sine tone that overlaps with each, as they alternate back and forth. The result is a kind of story-less narrative, these compelling but distinctly complementary aspects (one beyond tone, one richly harmonic) suggesting contrasting viewpoints.

Track originally posted for free download at soundcloud.com/gaapiiiii. Gaapiiiii, who only otherwise identifies himself as G P on SoundCloud, is based in Japan.
