Japanese, Tokyo based musician and composer Keiji Haino is back with a new album called My lord Music… which is out now via the newly relaunched Purple Trap imprint, produced in collaboration with Black Editions. According to the press release, For over 25 years, Keiji Haino has used the hurdy gurdy to channel dark dimensions—creating music that bridges the centuries between distant medieval eras and a future awash in densely layered sounds that grind and float in an otherworldly atmosphere. “My lord Music…” is a suite of nine pieces that reveals the startlingly distinctive and wide range of Haino’s approach to the instrument. The music is at once dissonant and hypnotic, rich with unfurling drones that dynamically ebb and flow—Haino’s musical sensibility and physicality, always present and unmistakable.
