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 Gaapiiiii, who only otherwise identifies himself as G P on SoundCloud, is based in Japan.
