Phi Bui is a composer, beatmaker and producer currently residing in San Francisco, CA. His influences stem from musique concrète, ambient, classical, hip-hop, and lo-fi idioms. Sonic pieces were formed using acoustic instruments, đàn bầu, a 4-track, and samples from records and field recordings. Eilean Rec. presents here, his first complete LP.
The compilation features 12 tracks from some of the globe’s most talented sound-designers. It is a subtly rewarding headphone listen from start to finish; curated and ordered to purposefully induce a state of sleep. Starting off minimally, gradually gathering tone and atmosphere, the experience goes on without ever boiling over or reaching a crescendo. Parts of the album are light and restful whereas traces of it tread darker territory. All in all, the imagery that the album conjurs sits perfectly as a soundtrack to the dreams one experiences during a nights sleep.
