about

his time it's a full-length album by Łukasz Szałankiewicz aka ZENIAL who returns to the label after two acclaimed releases (a solo album "Connection Reset by Peer" and a live album "There's No Other God than Rambo!" by AABZU, a duo with Maciek Szymczuk.) "Chimera" is 40-minutes of music that will appeal to fans of academic electronics as well as its contemporary genres followers.

Each vinyl has two sides and here this division is even more evident. The first side gathers 3 compositions: the title track, which was inspired by footage from the 1980s; "Hästhallen," which was prepared as a sound background for gallery installations; "Unclean/Clean," which is a reworked version of a digital bonus to "Connection Reset by Peer". These tracks were previously presented in galleries in Karlskrona (SE), Gdańsk (PL) and Rostock (DE) and also on Swedish radio (in the series presenting the latest compositions from Stockholm EMS where they were created), but the following vinyl album is the first physical format which one can listen to
these compositions from.

The second side with two tracks is a closed entity dedicated to Franz Bardon, Czech scholar of hermetics, and conceived in collaboration with Prague Skolska28 gallery. The title Rosora is a sort of acoustic instrument used in magical practices. The final of this project took place on Babel Festival together with Mikolas Chadima and Martin Blazick. There is also a limited DVD with the video material by Radosław Deruba (he collaborated with Łukasz Szałankiewicz on the occassion of "Connection Reset by Peer" album.)

What is more, 4 out of 5 compositions were created during Łukasz Szałankiewicz residency in prestigious EMS studio, which is a Stockholm counterpart of the legendary Polish Radio Experimental Studio.
