about

Press blurb: Named after the semi-mystical automaton from Harry Martinson's long-form sci-fi poem 'Aniara', Mima builds on the retro-futuristic themes of Onkalo and delves deeper into ideas that lie between the twin poles of faith and uncertainty. A deep interest in mythology, and the part it plays in human development, has been a fundamental part of previous Petrels releases and Mima serves to take this interest further, asking; What place does myth have in our future understanding if we seek to claim the answers to every question? And what myths could we seek to build for ourselves in the future? Drawing inspiration from sources as wide-ranging as the Space Race, Angela Carter, early Cosmology, M. John Harrison, witchcraft, Iain M. Banks Culture novels, and the films of Apichatpong Weerasethakul, Mima is another immersive sonic landscape from Petrels - more interested in posing questions than providing easy answers.
