A voyager settles down, an improviser finds a home. From gaseous state to solid state. From the subconscious to the told to the written and back.
REA presents her solistic debut record laying down the luggage of a long term travel. She takes us on a cinematic trip through foreign lands, dystopian electronica and hopeful poetry.
released November 8, 2019
GÓI is a musical cocoon, a shelter,
rather a mirror of my own face.
A braided wire
made out of found pieces.
GÓI is about the dialogue between plants and myself.
About firesmoke and fell,
a slanted eaves to let the water tide away.
