“Songs for Sunhi (Summerrain)” was the third part of a cycle of series. After the works “Dreams of Leaving” on Genesungswerk, reflecting autumn; and “Shall We Go To The Park?” reflecting spring it’s dedicated a series of miniatures to the fading blossoms of summer.
“Soon-Now” is a short interlude to prepare on the rain, that is going to fall down on “Tokki”. In the background on “Soon-Now”, there’s a story narrated in Japanese about Binbougami, the Japanese ghost of poverty. Traditionally, ghoststories are narrated in Summer and are strongly crosslinked to rain and water. “Tokki” continues the direction of “Shall We Go To The Park?” and combines acoustic guitar with other odd curiousities to digital folklore. For “Tokki”, Konrad sampled a corean Kayageum picking-instrument – while “Tokki” means “Rabbit” in Korean. “Kites” makes the listener travel to one of the largest cities on earth, while the citynoise slowly fades into melodies with the time passing by. On “Falling”, the clouds thin out for a little.
Single sunspots let piano and guitar samples melt off the harddisk. “Stay” takes up the feeling of “Tokki”, since again it started to rain – nobody should leave now for “The Glassmoon” giving an introduction upon the parallel port of Ambient and Folk. The outro “A Maze” is a labyrinth of sounds, a guitar lick one can lose himself easily.
