Working in isolation due to the Covid pandemic, Atsuko Hatano played violin, viola, synthesizer and electronics to create these powerful, unique compositions. Insulated Paradise is an investigation into the social nature of humanity, an inward gaze during a time of isolation and a reaction to isolation itself.
Ultimately, the solitude was a positive experience for Atsuko Hatano and Insulated Paradise was born.
