Jamadevi is a meditative composition consisting of 6 tracks produced by Myanmar sound designer, Lynn Nandar Htoo unmasking the brutality of the political event that happened in 2021 in Myanmar through her sentiments of sound designing and storytelling. Lynn Nandar Htoo’s EP explores minimalistic tones overlapping syncopated Myanmar traditional percussions that creates a hypnotic effect – slowly transitioning into dronelike territory synchronized by subtle noises and glitches.
Fascinated with traditional tunings and compositions that resembles her Myanmar cultural traditions, Lynn Nandar Htoo integrates the rhythmic essence of Nat Pwel, a ritual that is led by a queer character into haunting ambience depicting the alienation that many has felt since the condemned political event. Jamadevi is an enigmatic piece of electronic music work that yearns to form dialogues of displacement between sound & the effects of politics through her intricate compositions.
