Genre/Influences: Cinematographic, experimental, abstract.
Background/Info: Bionulor is a Polish solo-project set up in 2006 by Sebastian Banaszczyk. He defines his work as ‘100% sound recycling’. It means that ‘every track is created solely on the basis of processing only one sample deriving of a specially selected source sound, without any additional sounds or instruments.’
This EP has been accomplished for a theatrical performance for Yasmina Reza’s play “Trois Versions De La Vie”.
Content: The work features 6 very short cuts. You immediately recognize the typical soundtrack-like approach, which is clearly composed for a performance. The sound is ultra-experimental and sounds analog-like. The tracks feature multiple sweeps and scratching noises, but also dark tones and a rather mysterious, but evasive sensation.
+ + + : You easily feel the soundtrack approach and the beautiful sonic reverie.
– – – : I think this is the kind of music you have to discover together with the theatrical performance. It now sounds fragmented and the tracks are a bit too short.
Conclusion: This work reminds us that most of the visual art performances like theatre, movies and of course dance are nothing without music.
Best songs: “Runda 3”.
