Ike has been active in Auckland, and in Berlin too. His ambient music has a conceptual bent, often featuring clean digital synths, spoken word samples and dramatic bursts of sub bass. As well as ambient music he makes stuff with detailed, syncopated beats.
He performed at the Audio Foundation’s Outlier Festival 2022 and appears on the associated compilation album with a version of “For BK”, originally on his EP Suite In Lila (2020).
He also recently contributed a synth choir piece with some spoken word, “Bianca”, to the compilation and felt like… (2021).
As well as Suite In Lila, Zanniken has released another ambient EP, For Little Limp and Tunnel Vision (2020). It’s the first release of an imprint called Storage Media.
Ike used to make music as Eskimo Eyes, but I think he’s deleted the Bandcamp page for that.
