about

Airing: air. ring. radio waves and bells

for this project, I wanted to pay homage to the first composers of electroacoustic music and their experiments—
finding out where classical instruments and electronics could intersect. the sonic emphasis here is placed on the bell, so I played cymbals, crotales and bells of all kinds, also violin, wineglasses, toy piano and zither, and created choirs of my own voice
(celebrating conventional musicality)

I imagine this record transmitted as a radio broadcast at midnight, perhaps from the shores of a remote island...

"more abstract than the compositions of Steve Reich…a restless intelligence"
– PopMatters

"the more textured and atonal side of things, but the 'noise' his tracks are comprised of never comes off as harsh or unlistenable"
– The Needle Drop

"accessibly abstract...Piotr's control of rhythm is magic"
– InYourSpeakers

"the album duly unfolds and genuinely engrosses"
– Igloo Magazine

"a masterpiece in electroacoustic craftsmanship…surprisingly stunning"
– Critical Masses
