The music was all recorded on 4 track cassette and features soothing keyboards, sunburst guitars, electronic and acoustic drums and ghostly yet intimate vocal lines textured by distorted samples and various household objects.
Mainly based on meditative drones with simple melodies floating on top, the subtle counter-rhythms in the samples, vocals and basslines give the music a truly free and relaxed feel.
Originally the concept for Sonaura was initiated and inspired by the writer's 3 year old son, and a lot of happy accidents whilst experimenting. Now it has become a realised project for the artist, we at The Mentalist Association look forward to delivering more of Sonaura's work in the future.
In the meantime, this EP is altogether an intrigueing introduction to the world according to Sonaura.
