descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Bouchons D'Oreilles is a new duo of Lukasz Kacperczyk (synth) and Mateusz Wysocki (laptop) that focuses on improvisation through electronics. Kacperczyk is a member of the groups Cukier, Paper Cuts and Warsaw Improvisers Orchestra and Wysocki is better known as Fischerle and also runs the amazing Pawlacz Perski label. Both have released albums on such impressive labels as Wounded Knife, Monotype Records, Adventures in Dubbing and Chemical Tapes among others. Bouchons D'Oreilles side of this split tape features intense studies in sound that come across as composed but are the results of intense improvisational experiments.

Warsaw Improvisers Orchestra is a large ensemble focused on the concept of instant composition. The group was established in 2013 by the saxophonist Ray Dickaty (known for his work with Spiritualized among many others). Dickaty has been a fixture on the Warsaw improv scene and brings together the Orchestra which on this recording is 30 members strong (including Piotr Melech, Lukasz Kacperczyk, Natan Kryszk, Michal Maota, Patryk Zakrocki and many others) for an incredible performance captured live at Laboratorium at Centre for the Contemporary Art (CSW Zamek Ujazdowski) to a sold out audience (as opposed to their regular monthly gigs that are more "workshops" for the group). The concert garnered rave reviews from the Polish press and we are beyond excited to present an immaculately recorded document of said evening.

Although you may not currently be familiar with these Polish artists I highly recommend you get hip to it. Many of these folks have already and will continue to make names for themselves as they take improvisation into some new and exciting territories that not too many folks have previously explored."-Astral Spirits
