Discrepant presents the first ever vinyl release of Kiribati, the very first instalment in the acclaimed Ambient Exotica Soundscapes by veteran English experimentalist Mike Cooper.

''This was the first release on my Hipshot c.d.r label in 1999. I wanted to create an album of imaginary soundscapes from imagined exotic places based on my travels in the Pacific Islands and South East Asia.

Kiribati was the first in a series of three CDs of Ambient Exotica Soundscapes - played on lap steel, electronics, prepared guitar, sampler, live environmental recordings (from Bali, Malaysia, Australia and Italy) and acoustic and electronic percussion.
