Ayota -
Sonen EP
Japan is a very special place for me, where I have had some incredible experiences and been truly inspired by the people and culture. I have some very dear friends and close family from various parts of the country, so when I saw the shocking images of the Earthquake and Tsunami over a week ago, I was horrified. It was hard to imagine such a beautiful place being destroyed in such a short space of time. So in light of this event, Primaudial Records are releasing an EP from my Ambient Electronic project Ayota, featuring two brand new tracks. All proceeds of this release will go directly to the Japan Red Cross Tsunami Appeal.
