22/30 ambient experimental

eiko ishibashi – for mccoy

Throughout her discography, Eiko Ishibashi has exhibited a range of sonic climates. It is as her orchestral tones lightly interact when ‘For McCoy’ feels at it’s mesmeric best. The problems, however, are underlined when the moods shift too quickly into cacophony and the wonder of Ishibashi’s gentle horizon momentarily cracks. Even so, these hurried sections are expertly patched up to make way for a poised ambience; the plodding, minimal dream pop at the end of track #2 is simply stunning. At one point, we hear the sound of feet trudging under gravel, giving a character to our journey and furthering the experiential elements of this delicate work of modern classical.
