    Title of the upcoming album: "Remaining Sounds"
    Date of release: July 2012

    The history of the album:
    In 2010 when I returned home from the Shanghai Biennale where I performed with Zen Lu music to the Isaac Julien's film "Better Life", using different instruments, sometimes DIY boxes and contact microphones I realised that I don't want to use any synthesizers or plugins to create my music. I thought that all soundscapes can be created out of the remains of the sounds which you can hear using the reverbs and delays. I also thought that I can play all sounds myself, or I can use field recordings and try to find all that remaining sounds.

    This was the basic idea hidden behing the project called "Remaining Sounds". I started each track with just one sound, and sometimes this sound was transformed so many times, that almost the whole track was made of it. Sometimes I started adding different sounds, to get more space. I also recorded many of the tracks into a tape, and than back into the computer to get the characteristic analogue hiss, I simply love.

    I love playing traditional instruments, so I recorded many guitar loops and some piano sounds. I things which surrounded me became the source of sound recorded in many different ways.

    The first sketch of the album was ready just after a few weeks. Later I started changing things and recording more tracks. When the album was almost ready I experienced a hard rive failure and lost many tracks. Than I recorded a lot of music using only Tascam 4-track taprecorder. Some of the loops created during that session were also added to the final version of the album.

    Although some of the tracks sound more or less experimental, I implemented some melodies into the cpomositions. I must say, that I am a big fan of harmony and nice melodies, and no matter how hard I try to get rid of them, they simply slip into my tracks and became an integral part of the music.

    The whole album was than sent to my friend Krzysztof Orluk who uses mostly analogue toys in the mastering process. One of them is the prototype tube saturator developed by a Polish engineer Andrzej Starzyk, who later incorporated it into his Looptrotter Monster Compressor.
