"All music composed by Andruchowycz / Trzaska / Mazolewski / Moretti. Jurij Andruchowycz - voice, Mikolaj Trzaska - alto saxophone, bass clarinet & harmonica, Wojciech Mazolewski - electric bass & double bass, Macio Moretti - drums, baby keyboard & two rubber pigs, Zosska Golebiowska - flute in track: 5,14,17. "The idea to record an album together, on which Andruchowycz reads his poetry to the music of Miko?aj Trzaska, was born during the artists' journeys through the Ukrainian Karpatian mountains. In autumn 2003, they went in the studio in Lvov. And thus "Andruchoid", a musical - poetic project, was born. It contains several poems by Andruchowycz, read by the author himself, put in musical frames by Mikolaj Trzaska, Wojtek Mazolewski, Macio Moretti and Zosia Golebiowska. This innovative form, in which a literary work is commented with music, had been successful before - during Mikolaj Trzaska collaboration with the poet Marcin Swietlicki and an author, Andrzej Stasiuk. It is an avant garde, non-commercial project which refers directly to the beatnik tradition of the 50's as well as old radio shows. The album also includes a booklet with poems in original as well as translated by Bohdan Zadura and Jacek Podsiadlo." (label info)
