KAJA (pronounced khi-ya) is the work of Irish producer J. Cowhie.
'Womb Echo' is his debut release.
'The project came about while my wife was pregnant with our first child. With everything that goes along with expecting a child, the anxieties, the excitement, the waiting, the fear. I started thinking about what the outside world might sound like from the womb. I started to construct and manipulate sounds using a handheld cassette recorder, a tascam 4 track, a synthesizer, a guitar and processed them through my laptop.
Each track features something of my son, his heartbeat from an ultrasound, to his laughing, his crying after he was born, even to the wheels of his pram on the grass one summers day. I've slowly chipped away at the music, mostly early mornings and late nights, while my new born son slept. This music is for him.'
