PAWEL GRABOWSKIs Beitrag zur Mutterleibs-Drone-Serie: Konkrete Tupfer auf hypersoften wallenden Drones, wieder scheinen viele field recordings benutzt worden zu sein; das ist wirklich unbewusste Musik, es ist fast unmglich darber etwas Analytisches zu schreiben, denn sie rinnt aus dem Bewusstsein wie ein Hauch... ...this is really unconscious music, its nearly impossible to write anything rational about it, it just oozes away out of your mind like a breeze.....

Pawel Grabowski is a polish expatriated composer & musician...
His first steps in music were as a doublebass player with faction MIASTONIESPALO (1998-2000), a prized chamber music trio using cello, accordion & double bass...
After playing his final note with the band, he went solo & started working with electroacoustic music combined with field recordings, releasing his debut on german LAUB label ("Diarakth" 7" EP) a pervasive droning mantra...
In 2002, relocated to Ireland, he refined his skills, creating along the way his own imprint SILENCE IS NOT EMPTY records...
His debut on it was "Glitch Letters", a much less drony, microtonal work,
a study of silence...
Combining the experiences from playing microtonal and improv, he elaborated further his own musical language, again based on slow textured sensitive drones studded with minimal sounds & concrete elements...
This return to drones first saw daylight on "Cirr's songs", a 7" recorded for DRONE in 2005. Since then, there has been an appearance on the portuguese CRONICA label and on a few other compilations, and much more is in the pipeline...
Pawel's MS contribution "Arh" is a quasi exorcizing movement in 4 parts, the reflection of a personal troubled period...
"Arh" is a house of healing sounds where water oozes from cracked walls like sudden visible tears after a stupefied silence... static drones make the rooms breathe & swirling, circling patterns breed frozen moments of sheer contemplation, condensed waves of emotional depth... -"Arh" pictures an inward wreck a disappearance, & its engraved memories echoes of our errant life... "Arh" flows solemnly
dissipating all our fears and in its spectral traces lie the seeds of redevelopment... [label description]
