Desert Turtle is an ambient and vocal sound work by Mitsu Salmon and Kikù Hibino around ideas of shelter, landscapes, and migration. Mitsu’s mother arrived from the wet and dense city of Yokohama Japan to the vast and dry Mojave desert in the 1960s. She related to the turtle she found in the landscape, hiding in their shells and traveling with their home on their back. Mitsu then returned to the home and landscape in which her mother arrived in the states in 2021 to create this album.
