This time there are not many live-acts which we could record. Either we didn’t have time, or the weather was not very good. There are several minutes recorded with the TASCAM tape-recorder but it takes time to digitize them.

But while we were sitting in the garden, next to the bonfire, after a traditional meal prepared at the bonfire, taking a rest we recorded some guitar sounds played by Grzegorz. Than when we were in Nowy Dwór Mazowiecki Greg recorded Zen Lu reading some Chinese poetry and the children playing in the backyard of the kindergarten. Than everything was mixed and here you are – a FREE track, ready to DOWNLOAD.

We had a nice show in Cafe Belg, in Częstochowa. The live event was called “Sounds of Tea”. Pan Ziliang prepared some Kung Fu Tea for the guests, Kenbo painted some nice pictures and Zen Lu and me played an improvised live-act.

Check the Zen Lu’s description of the event.

A fragment of a Vital Weekly review of the album:
[…] Delicate late night music of carefully constructed hiss, cracks and long form glitchy sounds, field recordings inside a train station and which works fine on an early morning (the computer clock says 7:35 – no kidding). Each artist created four pieces, but its hard to see a difference between their individual approaches. There is not a single moment around here which I thought was radically different from what I already know, but everything is executed with the greatest care and love of the microscopic detail of sound. […]

It’s great music for this part of the year – winter!

During my last stay in China (I was performing during the ChoP Festival, which was simply awesome!) I also decided to run in Shenzhen. It looks strange if you check my workout because you can see that I was running on the water. Well, Google maps are simply too old. The Chinese decided to add ground there. Well, I can prove it with the pictures, taken there.

W ostatnich dniach red. Łukasz Komła przeprowadził ze mną w ostatnich dniach duży wywiad dotyczący głównie ChoP Festival oraz moich chińskich doświadczeń. Wywiad ukazał się w 2 częściach na portalu nowamuzyka.pl.

This year we will perform during the ChoP Festival in Shenzhen and Hong Kong!

After 3 years, ETALABEL proudly presents the 5th studio album of Polish and Chinese artists working as a part of the ChoP Project (www.chop-project.com). This time, Krzysztof Orluk [PL] and Bai Tian [CN] were invited by the founders of the ChoP Project, i.e. Grzegorz Bojanek and Zen Lu, to joint this transnational initiative.

This is a nice ambient / drone / field recording mixture created by two artists from two different regions and cultures.
