hums – hello – a new collaboration between me and Chiaki Yamamoto

Anthill Recordings presents ‘hello’ by hums. hums is a new project by Chiaki Yamamoto, and me, Demonic Sweaters. I met Chiaki though our mutual friend Satoshi Inoue, whom I collaborate with in his project Echoscape.

Satoshi moved back to Japan a few years ago, but he told me his friend was moving close to the area and we should get together. Chiaki and her husband Osamu came to visit Victor and I one weekend, and at the end of the night, Chiaki and I played a bit of music. She was playing guitar and singing and I played my new fretless bass. I really liked how it sounded, and suggested we work on a recording project.

Once Chiaki got back to Long Island, she started working on some new songs and would send me the parts remotely. I would ad my parts and we’d talk a bit about the direction. We decided to focus on two songs and release a single. The result is what you see here, and I’m really proud of these two tracks. Both will be avalible tomorrow on Bandcamp as well as every streaming music service at https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/hums/hello

The songs were both written by Chiaki, and produced, mixed and mastered by me.
