Album Notes
One of the original reviews of 'i fear what i might hear' from 1984


The Juno Awards people have never heard of him and his name has not achieved household fame in his home province of Alberta.

Yet the most exciting and innovative electronic-rock artist in this country is Tona W. Ohama, a solitary figure who lives and creates his music on a potato farm in Rainier.

Following close on the heels of his brilliant mini-album "Midnite News", Ohama's latest disc is his first full-length effort. Recorded at his own eight-track studio, it is an engrossing and exhilarating work that moves smoothly between brooding tunes and riveting electro-rock numbers.

Within that musical framework, which is enriched through sound effects and elaborate arrangements, Ohama weaves a psychological web of figures trying to make their way through life.

While there is a darkness at the edge of his soul, there is also a subtle feeling of freedom, reflected in the album's final track "Part In Peace".

Ohama's vocal style is a kind of huskier David Sylvian, somehow both distant and intimate in the same breath.

"I Fear What I Might Hear" is a remarkable recording of tension and depth, from a solitary pioneer in electronic-rock who still remains Alberta's best kept musical secret. (Rating A) James Muretich
