"Presenting yet another collection of "absent" works is an evidence of their creators' critical approach and lack of consent to political pressure, under which they had to function. This album is only a selection of compositions belonging to this trend. Under the wing of the Warsaw Polish Radio Experimental Studio emerged dozens of hours of socially engaged music. These compositions to a various degree alluded to the current events but also pointed to the broader historical and humanistic context. Visible references to "here and now" do not lower the artistic rank of those works. What is more, they mysteriously make them more universal."-Bolt

Bôłt's goal is to promote the achievements of the most eminent composers of contemporary classical, experimental and improvised music working in Eastern Europe Bôłt emphasizing originality, skills and imagination which avoid the shallows of pseudo-avantgarde trash.
