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)

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:

The physical release of my album “Live in May” is almost ready. Thank you all for a big support! (You know who you are!)

Zupełnie z zaskoczenia okazało się, że są ludzie, którzy wiedzą kiedy mam urodziny! To bardzo miłe, szczególnie kiedy jeszcze komuś chce się przygotować coś specjalnego! Dlatego składam wielkie dzięki dla Piotrka, który specjalnie dla mnie zbudował samodzielnie efekt gitarowy. Nazywam go: Nmls_Distortion.  Niezwykłym elementem jest bardzo długi “sustain”. Poniżej przykład brzmienia efektu. Nie ma to jak DIY!


Już niebawem, bo 7 maja, na scenie zadebiutuje najprawdopodobniej moja nowa zabawka DIY, czyli Szalony Looper. Dzięki pomocy pewnego człowieka o złotych rękach powstał pierwszy z serii Looperów… A jak on działa? Jest tam sobie układ scalony Picaxe, do którego wgrany został programik. Jest też fotorezystor, dzięki któremu powstają szalone pętle, a także dwa potencjometry, jeden do regulacji wysokości tonów, a drugi do regulacji tempa. Jeśli chcecie usłyszeć to urządzenie w akcji, zapraszam do Cafe Belg 7 maja. Tam zadebiutuje!

I was invited to play during the Radiofonia Birthday Party called “before. receive.” (Krzysztofory | Kraków) . I suggested playing with my friend Piotr Michałowski as a duo. In the end we supported Scorn and Submerged from the Ohm Resistance label. It was a really nice improvised ambient live-act. Although a bit spontaneous many people liked it very much (especially Kurt (Submerged) who liked all our DIY toys and other stuff we used on stage). After the show the energy was also very good especially because we met… TOP SECRET :-)

So here it is: 2 short videos from our performance
