I wasn’t sure if I’ll be able to participate this week, but I managed! I didn’t have time to record my part from scratch, so I decided to use an excerpt from one track which I recorded during my session without laptop when I experienced a Hard Drive crash. I recorded several tracks using only different stuff and my old 4-track Tascam recorder.

Here are the photos from that session.

In this excerpt which is now part of this disquiet junto submission you can listen to me playing the guitar, an old Chinese cymbal from Wuhan which I played using a bow, some glockenspiel, and a piece of paper with a contact microphone glued to it.

I wanted it to be short (between 2 and 3 min.) and I wanted my part not to be too aggressive. You have to assess if I managed. Still, Disquiet Junto is all about being able to fail without consequences, so I hope you gonna like it in the end.

I took part in a nice project of the Disquiet Junto Group on SoundCloud.

The aim of the project was to re-tell a very short and simple story – an anecdote really, an everyday slice of life – utilizing sound.

This was the story:

Background: Matt Madden’s single-page comic is the template for a book he created titled 99 Ways to Tell a Story: Exercises in Style. In the book, Madden told that same story 99 different ways, each in a different comic-book style. For example, he told it as a superhero comic, he told it as a manga, he told it as experienced from upstairs, and he told it as if it were overheard at a bar. Madden did this in homage to the French writer Raymond Queneau’s own Exercises in Style, which is a key text of the literary movement known as Oulipo. Oulipo approaches the act of writing with intentional constraints, and the movement’s approach to creativity was a strong influence on the development of the Disquiet Junto. Oubapo is the name of the comics version of Oulipo. What we’re up to is the musical version: Oumupo

Here it is. I found this recording some time ago. This is my live-act which I played during the Summer Wave – Warsaw Electronic Festival, back in 2008. It was great to meet all the people I’d already known and the people from the WEF forum.

You can listen to the live recording on my soundcloud or simply here.
