over the course of two decades, kimi recor, a berlin-based sonic artist, has engaged in a multifarious range of musical genres, instruments, and styles, utilizing her creative practice as a medium to explore her connection to diverse worlds, including her inner self, the natural world, and the worlds of others.
while her career was largely dedicated to playing in bands and collaborating with various artists, such as john tejada, in 2020, recor underwent a profound transformation after attending a soundbath that featured gongs and crystal bowls.
captivated by the intricate harmonics and the vast array of frequencies and their effects on her well-being and state of mind, she embarked on a journey to experiment with these instruments, seeking guidance from numerous mentors to deepen her understanding of frequency and its impact on human systems.
in 2023, recor unveiled her latest project, winfrid, which deviates from the conventional song format of her past work. she blends organic instruments, such as planetary paiste gongs, with analog synthesizers, ethereal field recordings, and lush vocals to create an experimental post-pop soundscape imbued with a heavy, dreamlike quality.
currently, recor is in the process of producing her debut full-length album and hosting monthly live soundbath sessions at her berlin studio, providing attendees with a transformative experience in which they can submerge themselves in a sea of restorative frequencies and vibrations.
