**300 copies** Following last year's Şeb-i Yelda EP under the R.A.N. moniker, Hüma Utku delivers Gnosis, her debut full-length album under her own name; a blend of abstract electronics and ritualistic throbbing beats with field recordings and ambience. With Şeb-i Yelda (2018) Hüma Utku introduced her musical style to a broader audience - storytelling through elements of industrial, techno and abstract electronics, blending in field recordings and traditional instruments from the middle east. A sonic journey that now continues on Gnosis, an album that owns the signature sounds of the Istanbul born / Berlin based electronic artist and pushes them further. The Greek word Gnosis meaning "knowledge reached through intuition and individual experience" has been used throughout history by various schools of esotericism and thought, to signify gaining insight on workings of the universe. Coherently the album follows the hermit-like, truth-seeking traveller on a path through various times and geographies, through different forms of human experience. Merging field recordings that Utku did in Greece, Egypt and Turkey with ambient soundscapes, abstract electronics and ritualistic throbbing beats, Gnosis is an intense sonic travelogue where the storyline exceeds the borders of any specific musical genre.
