Fausto Maijstral / T’ien Lai / Robert Piernikowski
Fausto Maijstral is the duo of DuChamp (IT) and Will Gresson (NZ). Together they perform dense, long musique concrete/drone pieces that explore memories and lived experience through heavily processed instruments and field recordings. They performed several time in Berlin with Nadja, Concern, Bill Kouligas, Preslav Literary School, Krapoola, Sun Worship, and many others.
Their debut album will be released on vinyl in Nov 2013 by La station Radar. The album has been recorded by Felix Florian Tödloff and master by Brian Pyle (Ensemble Economique, Starving Weirdos). It consist in four pieces equally influenced by pure drone, noise-a-la Dead C, folk, kraut, joint together by field recordings.
T’ien Lai, which translates as „celestial music”, is yet another interesting project from the enigmatic Milieu L’Acephale’s catalogue. Influenced in equal measure by ancient Jewish mysticism and the works of Philip K. Dick, Bydgoszcz duo use vintage radios, samplers, synths and a variety of effects to create deeply meditative sound situated somewhere within the definition of ambient music.
Robert Piernikowski „Się Żegnaj” is a debut album of Robert Piernikowski, recorded for Few Quiet People. Making an album was a pretty spontaneous project. I made it in two months I think. I was trying to catch this unique sound of my house and the nature – says Piernikowski. „Się Żegnaj” sounds completely different than other albums in FQP’s catalogue. Piernikowski deals with experimental hip-hop and classic electronic sounds creating mind-blowing compositions. Robert Piernikowski is a co-founder of experimental hip-hop band Napszyklat. If you’re a fan of Napszyklat, you should get (steal!) this album. Robert Piernikowski used laptop, tape recorder and keyboards. All other instruments played by Robert Piernikowski Recorded between March/May 2012 in Poznan, Poland. Mixed & Mastered by Robert Piernikowski, Poznan, Poland.
