Ikuko Morozumi - Null, is a two track EP that not only encompasses the industrial aesthetic of Ikuko's unique artistry, but is a project sits somewhere within the codex of the Matrix, sonically built of the same dystopian and futurist architecture to that of Blade Runner, or the avant garde ambience in Ex-Machina. The project is a synaesthetic experience, to say the least.
Previously releasing on imprints such as the infamous Detroit Underground, Mayoware Records and Future disorder, Ikuko has been a creative all of her life, producing works that have more than often been said to sit under the banner of 'Noise' and 'Glitch' music, compared to affiliated artists such as Yaporigami, Valance Drakes or the roster on Detund.
On Null, we find that genres and terms such as 'IDM', 'Glitch' or 'Noise' music cannot justify the outerworldly journey that Iku work pulls us through. The two track project is a futuristic simulation; a catastrophe, with an ambient musicality that she has so delicately produced into a body of art, topped by the stunning creative direction of multi-disciplinry artist Jedd Winterburn.
