The various sounds, including her own playing and singing, overlap, and beautiful music emerges like the colors of light shimmering in the night sky. This music, which is imbued with a private intimacy, yet evokes a magnificent and profound soundscape, gently caresses "I" from all over the world who have been forced to travel within, and invites us to "somewhere other than here"-an unknown world.

This album was recorded almost entirely by herself, a complete change from the previous band recording, and features guest musicians such as Kauai hirótomo (drums, also in charge of arranging M4 "Crossing the Night"), who also released his outstanding solo work "Another Galaxy" (2019) on TONOFON, Wakana Ikeda (flute), Yasuyo Toi (clarinet/bass clarinet), and Shugo Tokumaru (piano/cello, also responsible for some mixing). The specially printed CD jacket was designed by yunniko herself.

自身の演奏と歌声をはじめとした様々な音が重なりあい、夜空にきらめく光の彩のように美しい音楽が立ち現れる。プライヴェートな親密性に浸されながらも、雄大かつ深遠な音風景を想起させるこの音楽は、内なる旅を余儀なくされた世界中の「私」を優しく撫で、「ここでないどこか」=未知の世界へと誘う。


2014年にリリースされた1stalbum"Neuma"のバンド録音から一変、ほぼひとりで作り上げられた本作には、ゲスト演奏陣に、同じくTONOFONから出色のソロ作『Another Galaxy』(2019年)をリリースしたkauai hirótomo(ドラムス、M4「夜を渡る」アレンジも担当)をはじめ、池田若菜(フルート)、戸井安代(クラリネット/バスクラリネット)、トクマルシューゴ(ピアノ/チェロ、一部ミックスも担当)を迎えている。
