Andrzej Nowak – Cocktail PaintPosted: January 5, 2017
[ Dunno Recordings, 2016 ]
Looney Tunes in MIDI: There is a somewhat hazy backstory to this album: the label blurb claims is an archival release by the Polish electronic musician Andrzej Nowak who might actually not be Andrzej Nowak at all. The brief description at the label page states that it’s an archival release of short electronic pieces recorded between 1987 and 1994 for a series of cartoons. Apparently, the soundtrack was scrapped because the producer didn’t like it. However, it’s extremely hard to find any information to confirm this and every attempt to Google musician Andrzej Nowak ends up on Andrzej Nowak the rock musician, who was the founder of the Polish heavy metal band TSA. Whether it’s a genuine archival album or a brand new alter ego mindfuck, the MIDI sounds on Cocktail Paint are deliciously wacky and cheap-sounding, which would make a great early 90’s computer game soundtrack. Strange!
