Osaka-based artist Eshima Kazuomi (a.k.a. Kafuka) will release his new LP, Laws of Nature, on May 26 via Project Mooncircle.

Kazuomi’s work focuses on reprocessing samples, guitar recordings, and various field recordings, as well as algorithmically generated elements made using the audio programming software Max/MSP. The resulting music is a dreamy collage of evolving textures and emotive melodies, a cinematic style that nods to his work as a film score composer.

The new album looks to the pursuit of harmony in life, as Kazuomi explains: “To forget the pursuit of harmony. To recall the past to make a future. Forever seeing yourself reflected, feeding back in eternal repeating cycles. A dialog with oneself within the natural world. Choosing a final destination as the journey ceaselessly repeats. I hope to share what I’ve experienced in this big journey. I hope you will feel both a sense of nostalgia and a sense of newness. That makes our harmony.”

Laws of Nature comes out worldwide on limited vinyl (including download code) and limited-edition CD via Perfect Touch in Japan and can be pre-ordered here. Ahead of the release, you can stream album cut “Fine Rain” via the player below, along with the tracklisting.
