Johanna Elina Sulkunen ~ Koan / Terra

When a new album contains tracks titled “VIII” to “XIV,” it’s clear that some component is missing.  And so Terra sent us back to last year’s Koan to experience the Sonority project in its entirety.  There’s still one installment left in Johanna Elina Sulkunen‘s trilogy,

Otto A Totland ~ Companion
