Midori Takada & SHHE - MSCTY x V&A Dundee

A 4 track ambient album (1h 23m 13s) — released September 29th 2023 on MSCTY_EDN

A limited edition double CD, lavishly packaged within a 40-page book, marks the second release on the MSCTY Edition label.

It's a split-release double album featuring brand new works from two iconic female electronic artists.

Japanese legend Midori Takada and enigmatic fine artist, musician and producer SHHE, whose debut album was shortlisted for Scottish Album of the Year 2020, offer separate albums both inspired by one of the UK's most astonishing architectural masterpieces, the V&A Dundee.

Sympathetic to the architect Kengo Kuma's use of natural materials in the landmark building's construction, Takada's work is based around huge wood marimbas, creating an atmospheric, hypnotic beauty inspired directly by Kuma's organic vision.

Triggerd by the sounds of the water around the V&A Dundee, with the music reacting to the movement of the pools and the tides, SHHE's transcendental 45-minute work is also inspired by the rugged exterior of the museum architecture, and its location by the River Tay.

Midori Takada will be in the UK and supporting the release with live dates at Kings Place in London and Hidden Notes Festival in Stroud, Gloucetershire over the weekend of release, 22-24th September.

The relaase is striclty limited to 300 copies Worldwide.
