Thank you for tuning in to Hinako Omori's immersive audio stream.
Hinako Omori at Real World Studios
Hinako Omori began her musical career as a session musician for the likes of pop artists Ellie Goulding and James Bay before releasing her debut solo EP Auraelia: a sonic exploration of space, haziness and transformation, building on layers of synths and vocals.
In her WOMAD at Home session, Hinako blends field recordings of the natural environment — from Chew Valley and the Mendip Hills to the fields near Real World Studios — with man-made soundscapes created on a variety of synthesisers.
