Hidden Sun (2008)

1. Wonder Box
Wonder Box is a minimal and drone song using voice and guitar loop phrases.
And the feedback noise and the merotron sound will make you feel more floating.
The electric piano is also added from the middle of the song and those will be saturated.
2. Brilliant Sky
Brilliant Sky is a song that features overdubbed acoustic guitars and tempo delays.
And multiple choruses are added and it becomes a dreamy soundscape.
This is one of otom's own favourite songs.
3. Follow The Shadow
Follow The Shadow is a song that makes you feel so far.
Guitar and drum slow loop phrase with deeply reverb make you feel comfortable.
4. Raindrops (in B)
Raindrops is a very mysterious and melancholic feeling song.
Overdubbed piano phrases and reverse sounds that make you feel calm and then the sounds go far away.
One of the otom songs that took a lot of time to edit and build.
5. Animals
Animals is a drone song made with guitar and feedback.
These sounds are so much tender tone and reverb sound make you feel distance.
