I am very happy to announce that my latest album entitled “Analogue” was published by an awesome boutique Australian label Twice Removed. The album was recorded in 2011 when I did not have a laptop. In order to record all ideas and the whole album I used the 4-track TASCAM taperecorder. It was a challenging experience full of constraints. I played all different guitars, kitchen utensils, I used contact microphones sticked to paper and all other possible things which surrounded me. I also cut the tape and glued it to make long loops on a reel-to-reel recorder. I hope you gonna like the music. Here it is:

Noiko – Honey is a debut album with ten instrumental electroacoustic lo-fi compositions created from various samples, sounds of a clarinet, guitar, drums, glockenspiel, piano and different electronic virtual instruments. The material consists of productions created within 4 years. The author recorded most of the sounds in his own house. Some productions were recorded with the help of Łukasz Maciejewski (turntable).

The inspiration to creating this kind of sounds was the birth of the artist’s daughter, who was usually nearby during the sound recording.

This album was carefully mastered by Krzysztof Orluk with his analogue equipment. One of them is the prototype tube saturator constructed by Andrzej Starzyk, a Polish engineer and designer of the recording studio gear. All analogue machines used during mastering process gave the album a unique warmth and unusual dynamics. Both of the above mentioned features are desirable especially nowadays in the century of the electronic music distribution.
