Tales of Another Felt Sense of Self

A 5 track electronic ep (18m 23s) — released March 26th 2021 on -OUS

"To get physical through all the senses and to embrace the other is needed now more than ever. This is the feeling I wanted to translate into sound: raw, intimate, transitional, cleansing and moving. Breathing, embracing and releasing life in all of its facets - imperfect, impermanent, incomplete." — IOKOI

Sound artist, vocalist & composer Mara Miccichè aka IOKOI presents her most intimate work to date. Following her 'hypercyberreal' album "Liquefy", her new multidisciplinary work "Tales of Another Felt Sense of Self" is the result of a three-year collaborative journey inward, reflecting the numerous connections, contradictions, and reflections between the "self", the "same" & the "other".

Combining avant-pop & spoken word with field recordings & mercurial electronic textures, IOKOI researches the very essence of our being in relation to others. She is in search of who and what we are, as we face increasing disembodiment in the digital age. "Tales of Another Felt Sense of Self" demands a re-embodiment of all senses by exploring our routines of listening, seeing, sensing, understanding, and feeling, both in terms of the personal & the collective.

While the EP is being released in digital formats, IOKOI offers three additional layers of reflection: "Tales of Another Felt Sense of Self" is also a multisensory work in collaboration with videographer Michele Foti (IT), olfactory artist Klara Ravat (ES/DE) and visual artist Sarah Parsons (CH).

Michele Foti's video clips are published online, and a limited-edition booklet & room scent package is available through the -OUS Bandcamp page.
