Bojanek - Stories_2_1000px

My new album is called “Stories of an Old Man”. It is a bit different than other music I created. The tracks on this album were created as the audio background for an audiobook. That audiobook contains stories about my hometown. As the stories are pretty dark (full of murders, breakouts, explosions, arrests by communist regime), the music is sometimes dark and disturbing, too. The mucis on “Stories of an Old Man” are reworked versions and they are a bit darker, full of ambient, experimental sounds and even some techno pulses.

Also it is worth mentioning that the album was mastered by Michał Wolski, so you can be sure that there will be many beautifull noises and tape hiss! ENJOY.



Hello, I haven’t written for a very long time. Probably there are not many people interested in the things I do here on wordpress, still, the blog exists, so I should update it with some info. Last year was quite productive. I played several concerts and started some fruitful collaborations. You will hear the results soon. The most important thing was the ChoP Festival 2016 in November, which celebrated the 10th anniversary of the ChoP Project. We had several awesome concerts in different venues in Shenzhen and Hong Kong. I had a chance to play during the Festiwal Ambientalny in Wrocław and it was amazing, cause I had a chance to meet and have a chat with Rafael Anton Irisarri and Julianna Barwick. It was a great evening.

The future looks quite interesting. I have just finished a new album and I am working on some new ideas which will be published, soon.

Please follow me on Spotify and Deezer and also other streaming services.

And of course the most put to date info you can find on my Facebook.

The albums are published on my BandCamp, too.

See you soon.

It happened more than a month ago. I had a chance to take part in the Ambient Park Festival in Białystok. It was an amazing night, full of energy, full of people, full of emotions. Thank you Jędrzej!  

    
    
    
   

It was a pleasure to play a live-act during the 17th Ambient Festival in Gorlice. People who come to the Festival are real fans of the ambient and electronic music! They listen, talk to artists, buy CDs. That was an one and only, amazing experience. Thank you Tadeusz Łuczejko!  We spent a great time with Maciej Szymczuk and Ksymena, Alex and his wife, Łukasz Pawlak, Greg Martin, and many others! The final bonfire and sausages was something incredible! I hope to come back next year!

Tego wieczoru w Nokturnie na antenie radiowej Dwójki szczególny zestaw nagrań, które gromadziły się – w większości przez nas nieemitowane – przez ostatni rok. Mamy nadzieję, że dobrze zilustrują to, co dzieje się w elektronicznym (w większości) i skoncentrowanym na muzyce ambient (choć nie tylko) środowisku polskiej nowej muzyki. Będzie można usłyszeć nagrania takich artystów jak Micromelancolié, Fischerle, K. , Técieu czy Grzegorz Bojanek wydane przez małe wytwórnie na płytach i kasetach w ciągu ostatnich kilkunastu miesięcy. Serdecznie zapraszamy – początek o 23.05.

I am a proud member of Warsaw Laptop Orchestra… Here is our last live-act

The winter of 2013 / 2014 was very strange. The USA had terrible frost and huge snowfall, whereas the winter in Europe where I live was extraordinarily warm. We had only two weeks in January with the temperature below zero degrees Celsius and almost no snow. In order to remember this warm winter I felt like recording some warm sounds. Here they are. Enjoy them and remember to save your energy.

 

If you like streaming services like Spotify, you can listen to my music there, too (also Deezer or Wimp). My last “Boundless” EP can be found there.

 

You can also get it on iTunes – just click HERE

Remember that you can still get the physical copy – HERE

Boundless EP

This short “Boundless” EP was recorded in 2012/2013 and it was meant to be part of the bigger project with other artists which unfortunately wasn’t accomplished. The music shows the direction in which I started going back then. While recording I used some analogue synths, guitar and field recordings and lots of other stuff.

While preparing the physical release I took the photos not far from the place I live – in the glacial valley of the river Warta (3rd longest river in Poland). It is not the first time I go there to search for inspirations. That wild area appeared on the cover of the first Eta Carinae album long time ago. The tree you can see there does not exist any more…

I wanted to make something special. So here it is – each package contains black handmade cover with handpainted coverart, one of the unique photos 13×13 cm, developed on the mat photo paper and a vinyl-like black CD. (There were 25 copies and there are only 5 copies left, so hurry up)
