Hooked on multiphonics! This stalwart vocalist turns groaning into a sublime artform. From the ringing drones of Tuvan throat singing to the whimsy of Meredith Monk (see Dolmen Music) influenced rounds and canons, Mr Rajkowski's soliloquys display a brilliant and playful love for the human vox. Miroslaw explores a wide range of vocal stylings, carefully sidestepping any semblance of the common nuissance known as words. The deliverysleanmore towardssparse atmospherics (ala early Henri Chopin) than machine gun bombast, save for the occasional Schwitters-isms that inevitably twist across his tongue. Miroslaw clears his throat that you may clear your head.
This 10" record release is as far as Beta-lactam is aware, one of the longest ever cut, running in at almost 50 minutes of music!
MIROSLAW RAJKOWSKI The Primary Principle (Beta-lactam Ring 10" TOXIN025/LACTAMASE05)
Nearly an hour of sweet vocalism by this Polish lung-pumper, ranging from Tuvan-style throat splitting to of the sound-poetry gutter. As near as the notes and tones let on, this is a solo recording, possibly dicked with a bit electronically, but unencumbered by extraneous instrumentation. Still, Rajkowski covers whole quadrants of the map with his wonderful neck control, and you'll find yourself groaning along with him if you aren't careful. So do be. Careful. Okay?
