TUNE Hinako Omori - Auraelia
'Auraelia' is the first time Hinako has released an EP of her own. After delving into a hard drive of instrumental demos, lyrics and field recordings made over a four-year span, 'Auraelia' was born. The tracks are a sonic exploration of space, haziness and transformation, building on layers of synths and vocals.
Speaking about the EP, Hinako said "The idea of the tracks on Auraelia came about during a strange period of having daily migraines with auras for a month. The physical reaction I was experiencing from the auras – the haziness/blurriness/partial loss of sight and spots of light surrounding every day vision – also seemed to reflect the emotions I was feeling at the time – confusion, lack of clarity, ambiguity, mixed feelings of hope and melancholy...
I then discovered that Aurelia is a type of jellyfish, which also strangely seemed to fit the description perfectly! I recently found out that jellyfish don’t have a central nervous system or brain, but respond to stimuli detected from their tentacles - so they’re almost floating through the ocean, kind of helplessly, but perhaps with an innate sense of direction…"
Hinako's debut EP Auraelia is set for release Nov 22nd via Injazero Records.
