Nowy 04:50


‘Nowy’ means a ‘new one’ in Polish and this single is a celebration of kids’ voices and their approach to novelty. Those untrained voices are great at expressing the joy of discovering new things. Novelty is frequent in kids’ lives and kids are great at being fully absorbed in this newness.

This release is a fruit of remote music collaboration between musicians who had no face-to-face contact and were located on 2 continents and in 4 countries. The collaborative process took place in ‘the cloud’ with the use of the Blend platform which facilitated the remixing and exchanges of musical ideas.

Participants included Monochrome Echo from England, Brended James from Australia and Aammiioo from Croatia. Included is also a remix created by iubar’s Martin K under his KOshowKO moniker.
While the original guitar, field recordings and synth driven piece has been re-imaged quite differently by each of the collaborators, the recordings of kids voices (captured by Martin K in Australia and New Zealand) and guitar drones (recorded by Jarek B in Poland) provide a common sonic denominator to all of the tracks on offer.

The KOshowKO remix is a guitar riff driven and catchy affair with a strong electro element. Brenden James’ remix takes the listener on an evocative tropical electro-rock journey while Monochrome Echo explores the mesmerising jazzy-ambient and post-rock ground. Aammiioo closes the release with an expansive and groovy ambient remix.

iubar project originally began in 2009 in Biala Podlaska (a city in eastern Poland) with Jarek Bińkowski's guitar recordings. In 2011, Jarek's high school friend - Martin K, took a break from working on popular-music centered projects such as KOshowKO and Philosophy Of Sound and started producing iubar’s material, which included adding electronic parts and manipulating existing guitar recordings. Since 2014, Martin has been creating new material and performing solo as iubar project. His live performances incorporate touch-screen technology and live sampling. iubar’s main areas of focus are ambient, ambient-jazz and drone as well as post-classical improvisation.
