Back in November 2011 I experienced some problems with my laptop. Something bad was happening and I couldn’t play my last live-act of the 2011 Chinese Tour. After I came back home the problems started to grow and finally it appeared that the hard drive of my laptop was broken. I had to order a new one and wait for some time. Still I had so much creative energy after coming back from China that I had to record the ideas. I decided to forget the laptop and use only my 4-track Tascam taperecorder. Now, finally after all those years the material was mastered and published by Gavin so you could enjoy the music. Thank you!
This album was recorded without a laptop, only 4-track cassette taperecoder. When laptops are broken don’t be afraid to take a step back and use your imagination!

"Shuttling between Drone/Glitch undulations and wondrously earthbound investigations of bona fide frequencies complete with processed afterglows, the etherealism of Analogue manifests itself through susurration and the occasional power plucking that scythes through the circumambience. The basic premise – and promise – of Grzegorz Bojanek is the closed or broken lid of his laptop, and while I do not know the recording process in greater detail, it appears that the presence of electronic gadgetry is reduced to a bare minimum" Bjorn, www.ambientexotica.com
