I have put some new Lagowski tracks and remixes up on Bandcamp. All proceeds from the sale of this music will go towards the treatment of Ania Mehring, the wife of Maciej Mehring, founder of the Zoharum label. She has been diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer.

Lagowski 1990 + extras

January 3, 2015

I discovered that the cassette version of this had sold in 2014 for nearly £20 and another copy was available for £40, so I thought I’d make it available as digital for the much easier to swallow price of seven dollars.

Hot stuff

I was invited to release a S.E.T.I. album on a nice looking label a few months ago, so have spent many evenings creating tracks and am pleased to say the album was finished a few weeks ago and has already had the stamp of approval from ‘the label’. They release very limited runs of glass mastered CD’s – I will of course announce further details in due course. When it will be released is another matter, but I am very happy with the direction this album has taken and fans of S.E.T.I. will notice a big difference between this and ‘Final Trajectory’. Some of the sounds were played at my recent gig in Berlin and more will be previewed in Poland at the Gorlice Ambient Festival in July.

This doesn’t mean my relationship with Loki has ended and of course I hope they will be happy to release my material in future, but as I was invited and like the look of ‘the label’, I thought it might be fun.

For the Gorlice festival, I have been extending my video backing, as my set will be at least an hour long 🙂

In other news, there are plans afoot for a bunch of Nagamatzu CD releases on a Polish label, which may be familiar to some of you from a few of my recent releases 🙂 Stephen Jarvis has been hard at work sourcing graphics and we are at the stage of cataloguing tracks for the albums, which will include some never before heard demo tracks and possibly live noises too.

Finally, I have been working with Andrea Bellucci (‘Red Sector A’, not the voluptuous actress!) on some very hypnotic techno-type material and we hope to find a label for it towards the end of the year.

Don’t forget Nagamatzu vinyl and other releases of mine can be found at my Discogs Seller page

S.E.T.I. ‘Final Trajectory’ CD release

S.E.T.I. ‘Final Trajectory’ CD release

S.E.T.I. Final Trajectory CD

The new album of Andrew Lagowski’s S.E.T.I. begins as a colossal sound wall, like a massive electrical transformer, out of which analogue and digital synthesizer sounds and samples emerge, condense, and crossfade into a deep ambient symphony. The recordings and textures produced over 30 years from 1983-2013 converge in ‘Final Trajectory’ to produce a collection of monolithic sounds. Invoking a sense of immensity with warm and dark atmospheric loops sounding distant and abandoned in a vast wilderness, battling against galactic winds. S.E.T.I. sets the listener down in this wilderness as an isolated observer; a witness to long intertwining drones, shattered dialogue and broken transmissions, with superior effects chains and a gentle rising dramaturgy forcing the complete album to an astonishing pure data vortex.

As the Voyager spacecraft reaches the outer edge of our Solar System it is a fitting time to imagine the exodus from Earth of the last human being on their final trajectory towards an unknown future. There has been little effort made to prepare psychologically for this one way trip and hallucinatory voices and sounds flit around the traveller, mingling with those of the craft’s entertainment, propulsion and life support systems. Life memories, encounters and events break through the cracks of rational thought like dream fragments, in bursts of barely unrecognisable data. As the craft passes through the mid point of our planetary system on its way out, the occupant thinks they hear a message being transmitted from Earth on the permanently scanning radio receiver.….

Will this be real in our lifetimes? Is the craft being built already in the knowledge that we have little time left on this planet?

If so, where to next?
