Institute of Contemporary Arts

Hinako Omori performs a headline set, with Aga Ujma + Akiko Haruna (DJ).

Following last year’s “a journey…”, an album exploring therapeutic sounds and forest bathing, Omori shares a more song-based body of work, set to unfold over the coming months through Houndstooth. The organic, introspective track ‘in full bloom’ marked the start of this new chapter, where Omori’s work as a sound engineer shines as she marries intricate sonics and a full spectrum of synth-led sounds with delicate vocal melodies. Along with news of her London headline show, Omori released ‘foundation’, a cinematic slice of cosmic synth-pop over interlocking arpeggiators.

Born in Yokohama, Japan, Omori moved to the UK when she was three years old and lives in London. She began her musical path learning classical piano, later training as a sound engineer, and has since moved into working with analogue synths (on “a journey…” she uses a Prophet 08 and Moog Matriarch). Previous to releasing her own solo material she toured with and played on records by Kae Tempest, Georgia, and EOB, among many others, but it is her work in sound engineering that provides the bedrock of skills that manifest her vision for “a journey…”, articulating a whole world in binaural field recordings, analogue synthesizers and augmented vocals.
