The Forest That Hears - Single Laughing Ears 2023

"Strange sounds emerge from the forest as the night deepens and silence prevails. It's as if the forest has gained ears, able to hear the scattered inner thoughts left in different corners. A stubborn badger, set in its solitary ways, has found its secret hideout in this berry field.

... No matter where we are, frequencies always evoke unique memories and bring radiance."

Uncharted​云​深​不​知​处 Small Project Records 2023

"The Chinese title, "云深不知处" (Uncharted - "lost in the depth of the clouds"), comes from the famous poem "寻隐者不遇" ("Seeking the Hermit in vain") by the Chinese poet Jia Dao of the Tang Dynasty. The answers we seek in the vast nebula are just like the clouds concealing the hermit in the mountains, "deep and uncharted"."
