Hinako Omori – A Journey… [Houndstooth]

Yokohama-born, London-based composer and sound engineer Hinako Omori has released her debut album A Journey… The beautiful, ambient album was created from an immersive project made at Peter Gabriel’s Real World studios for the 2020 lockdown version of the Womad Festival. Beyond some callbacks to some of the great ambient composers, it is inspired by the 1980s Japanese therapy of shinrin-yoku, “forest bathing” – which involves taking a walk in the woods as an exercise in awareness. She also tries to incorporate sound therapy to the work, something I have tried for my migraines and it didn’t work (but it could work for others).
