Tuukka Junnikkala A mesmerizing, and honestly, moving, exploration on the nature of haiku. Variations on three popular haiku by Matsuo Bashō, with a synthesized voice reading out the works with varying accompaniment.

Something about the flawed and fragile sound of extremely synthetic sounding synthesized voices has always touched me very deeply. I guess to me it sounds like the singer's very existence seems to be at risk and they are putting their heart into every single note like it was their last. Favorite track: Haiku I.
