More Info

"Immer wieder tauchen aus dem Underground-Schlund neue Namen auf oft Knstler, die seit Jahren aktiv sind, und in allerkleinsten Nischen ihre marginalisierte Musik pflegen. So auch MIROSLAW RAJKOWSKI, der als reiner Vokal-Knstler rauhe und erdige Obertongesnge vollfhrt und mit dada-esker Stimmakrobatik glnzt. Hat eine durchaus (pseudo?)-wahnsinnige Komponente und ist wohl einer der abgefahrensten Scheiben dieser Liste!"
[Drone Records 2002]

Hooked on multiphonics! This stalwart vocalist turns groaning into a sublime artform. From the ringing drones of Tuvan throat singing to the whimsy of Meredith Monk (see Dolmen Music) influenced rounds and canons, Mr Rajkowski's soliloquys display a brilliant and playful love for the human vox. Miroslaw explores a wide range of vocal stylings, carefully sidestepping any semblance of the common nuissance known as words. The deliverys lean more towards sparse atmospherics (ala early Henri Chopin) than machine gun bombast, save for the occasional Schwitters-isms that inevitably twist across his tongue. Miroslaw clears his throat that you may clear your head. This 10"record release is as far as Beta-lactam is aware, one of the longest ever cut, running in at almost 50 minutes of music! part 5 in the 10" series. [press release]
