I started working on new material called “Frozen Lake” inspired by the lake which is near the place I live. I presented it for the first time during WEF.LIVE.LAB on 23.02.2013 in Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.

Here are some excerpts:

So if you buy this track for only 0.94 PLN (€0.21 or $0.28) or more you will support ChoP and the ChoP Tour which starts soon.

This track is a part of the copilation: V/A “a sound guide to Warsaw” which has been published recently by SQRT label with the support of the Art and Technology Foundation.

This track contains a field recording from “Służew” (a district in Warsaw). I also used an electroacoustic guitar to record it. (You can listen to the vibration of the strings while the guitar was close to the amplifier).

Soon both labels: sqrt and WEFREC will publish a nice compilation called “a sound guide to Warsaw”. So far, so good. The first review published by Vital Weekly is very good. Please read it below:

A SOUND GUIDE TO WARSAW (CD compilation)
Did I say I don’t like to review compilations? I must have. And sometimes I go all wrong, assuming the wrong things. Like here. I looked at the cover, reading about musicians and sound artists who ‘were asked to create a sound piece based upon and inspired by the field recordings made in Warsaw, Poland’, thinking it would be another one of those compilations with ‘soundscapes based upon field recordings’, lots of wind, crackle, streets-sound sort of things. That it is not, I can say, my assumptions were wrong. These field recordings lead up to a varied bunch of musical activities. Various of these lump in short actions into pieces of micro/glitch/ambient and even with dance like elements to it (like Bionulor, Seven Steven, Asdf, Krysztof Orluk, Michal Wolski) but also downright ambient with Kim_Nasung, Jarek Grzesica, Grzegorz Bojanek or Lukasz Ciszak. Odd balls are the jazzy instrumental piece by Noiko and the more noisy outings by Arszyn and Xlorite. Actually not many of the pieces seem to be dealing with just field recordings, so perhaps that’s the nicest thing about it: they all take it somewhere else. A pretty varied bunch, all of which sound alright, and nothing leaps out. (FdW)

Już niebawem nakładem SQRT – labelu Łukasza Ciszaka, we współpracy z Warsaw Electronic Festival, ma ukazać się składanka “a sound guide to Warsaw” zawierająca 13 kompozycji stworzonych na bazie nagrań terenowych z różnych miejsc Warszawy oraz instrumentów nie-elektronicznych. Będzie tam również mój utwór.

Myśląc o kompilacjach chciałbym polecić kompilację One Small Step, wydaną przez WEFREC, na której również znajdował się jeden z moich utworów. Cała składanka jest nagrana w 99% procentach w oparciu o transmisję radiową z Apollo 11.

Miło było też spotkać się z astronautami NASA, z misji STS-130 oraz generałem Mirosławem Hermaszewskim, w rezydencji ambasadora USA, Lee Einsteina, i wręczyć im nasze dzieło.
