Gishika-P has had a number of names over the years, including (past and present) ritual, DS Stix and ritualguyofficial. He’s a producer from Canada who, he says, “uses VOCALOID, Synthesizer V, UTAU, Alter/Ego, and sometimes NEUTRINO and CeVIO” to make ambient and electronic music. There’s a strong video game, anime and manga vibe about the artwork surrounding his music, and that makes sense because songs such as “Cathedral” and “I Found the Blue” would make for an awesome score. That said, even stand-alone, this music is fascinating, haunting and quite lovely. Layered like an onion, you hear something new with every spin.
