New Release! “Between Worlds” CD/DVD

I’m thrilled to announce the release of Akumu’s 6th full-length entitled “Between Worlds” on CD, DVD and MP3!

Recorded and mixed in stereo and full surround-sound, the new disc is 8 tracks of haunting drones, nebulous beats and ethereal crackles. At times calming and at times unsettling, “Between Worlds” draws deeper into an ambient score of dirges, guitar-based atmospheres and unearthly landscapes.

Between Worlds” is available in 5 editions: digital/mp3, cd, dvd, limited-edition combo-pack and an exclusive collector’s box.

I’m extremely pleased to announce the release of new music from Akumu on the brilliant Panospria label.

Descent” is 4 long-form ambient pieces that are based on field recordings captured within train stations, banks and other large structures. After digitally ground down and reformed into miniscule parts, an imaginary “molecular soundtrack” emerges to get lost in.
