DISCOGRAPHY

2020

Liminality

“In anthropology, liminality is the quality of ambiguity or disorientation that occurs in the middle stage of a rite of passage, when participants no longer hold their pre-ritual status but have not yet begun the transition to the status they will hold when the rite is complete.”

Weary

Exhausted and emotionally worn out, distant and forgetful.  Warping and twisting pleasant sounds into uncomfortable textures. Forcing chaos into peaceful bliss. That feeling of almost-sadness, grasping at memories drifting near the edge of your mind, almost gone from your conciousness.

Night Dive

Moonlit diving, phosphorescence, the ocean at night.

Utila Cays, Honduras – Koh Ru, Cambodia

FINITE

Exploring themes of generational rage and trauma, writ by the confusing waves of global violence over the last 50 years.

Considering the lives of friends in Cambodia in particular.

2019

Growth

The last project released in 2019, “Growth” is all about rich soundscapes and nostalgic tones. It’s an expression of hope for the future, and an ode to the past all at once.

Perspective

This project is a reflection of personal experiences meeting people across the globe, and talking with them about their lives. We are all connected, but contrasted as well, by our perspectives.

WRMTH

Inspired by the onset of spring, this lofi project hums with new life, warmth over faded summer beats.

Avoiding Things pt1

An exhausted sounding piano-driven collection of lofi beats, born from the stress and anxiety of looming project deadlines.

LITTLE WORLDS

Shinogo’s sophomore release is a sweeping journey through self-discovery and change. Each track takes you to a scene experienced between 2009 and 2012, transporting you to the “little world” that each memory represents.

The Trees

A haunting collaboration with Alanna Brown inspired by experiences of lonliness, desolation, solitude and longing.

The Pulse

Shinogo’s debut project is the culmination of 2 years of fractured development. A mixed collection of ambient, trip hop, dubstep and genres in-between, it was released originally for free in 2009 and is now available on all streaming platforms.
