Recorded in 2018 in Warsaw and in 2017 in Kuhlhausen (Germany) - where I stayed for two months as a part of an art residency programme run by Endegelande.

This album is about 85% acoustic. No effects were added to the sounds of the acoustic instruments. Two parts of the recordings of the prepared piano have been slightly slowed down.

prepared piano, trumpet, gong, radio, accordion, flute, harmonicas, vacuum cleaners with attached harmonicas, recorders, synths, drum machine, analog sequencer, analog effects, Max MSP. Some sounds come from metal bowls and pots stimulated by guitar amplifier with an attached mic. There are also sounds created by affecting electromagnetic field of a radio, where I was looking for special rhythmic patterns of radio noise.

La Monte Young), krautrock, and "clicks and cuts" aesthetics.
