|Phew||stomping in the dirt||Can you keep it down, please?||TakuRoku||
"Under the declared state of emergency due to the COVID 19 pandemic, I am recording the next album in my room. For me, recording is about creating my own future, and I am working on it everyday sometimes suffering from auto-intoxication. Recording makes the future, In other words, my present might be reflected in what was recorded in the past. So I dug out three songs tracks from my old hard drive that mirror the current situation and edited a mini-album."

|Wojciech Rusin||Hannasize (feat. Hannah Aspinall)||Meat For The Guard Dogs||TakuRoku||
Featuring a distant collaboration with Ben Vince; an online exercise class with Hannah Aspinall; fermented memories captured on a portable recorder and a multitude of 3-D printed reed instruments, synths, voices and more, Wojciech Rusin gifts us a six part celestial journey as if fished from a dream. Drawing on inspiration from alchemical and gnostic texts and early renaissance choral music, Wojciech's work takes a pluralist approach, letting contradictory elements bathe together, coagulate and be brought forth into the awkward present.
