'Circuit Intégré Vol. 2' DOCETISM / GHOSTS OF BRESLAU / IXORA
DOCETISM / GHOSTS OF BRESLAU / IXORA ”Circuit Intégré Volume 2 - A Compilation of Contemporary Electronica”
"Circuit Intégré" is a Zoharum series, modeled after Philips' "Prospective 21e Siècle" released at the turn of the 1960s and 1970s. Our new series presents the most interesting young projects working in the the field of broadly-defined electronic music. Each part will contain recordings of three different projects. In the second part the following projects participated: Docetism, Ghosts of Breslau and Ixora.
Docetism is an alias Maciej Banasik, who previously worked as Atum, Contemptus Mundi and Topografia, which explored the terrain of dark ambient, drone and field recordings. Operating since 2012 Docetism penetrates areas closer to ambient dub. In addition to numerous net publications, the project has four physical releses: a CD album "Endura" (Bunkier Productions, 2012), cassette "Askesis" (BLWBCK, 2013) and "Roots" (Rasputia, 2015) and an EP "Breaking the Circle of Life" (Tavern Eightieth, 2015).
Ghosts of Breslau is the longest running of the projects presented here. It has been around since 2001. At the early stage it focused on creating soundscapes evoking the spirit of the difficult history of their city, Wrocław. Currently, it is closer to drone structures. Such atmospherics can be found on his last album, "Man with the Green Gloves" (BDTA, 2016).
The last of the projects here is Ixora, that is the combined forces of Gaap Kvlt and Micromelancolié. The characteristic features of the plant called ixora include evergreen shrubs and magnificent inflorescences. The two musicians think about their music in a similar manner. You can hear echoes of both ambient drone and experimental techno in their tracks. They have their debut cassette issued under the banner of Pointless Geometry label.
The album is released in a 3-panel ecopak in a strictly limited edition of 400 copies. The cover is designed by Tomek Popakul (the author of an award-winning animated movie "Ziegenort"). It is mastered by Paweł Bartnik and his studio heavyweight.pro. The whole production process is overseen by Michał Porwet.
