BLURRR, a project of composer Aaron Kim, performs a type of musical wabi sabi. In times like these, with so much pain and grief in the world, I salute anyone who is willing to mix this concept with Kosmische Musik. Quite a nice EP. From BLURRR’s Bandcamp page:
This album was heavily inspired by the term ‘wabi sabi’. This Japanese term has no real definition. It’s more of an instinctual feeling of peace through imperfection. Crafting this album was emotionally laboursome as I tried to emulate wabi sabi in my own interpretation sonically.
This is a concept album about the process of self-healing. Suicide rates, anxiety and general depression has seen a sharp rise as mental health issues seem to grow more commonplace in society today. My hope is that you, the listener, can digest this album as a therapeutic experience that can influence your core to improve yourself today. All positive change can happen, it just takes support. And just know that there are people around you.
