BIONULOR - Sacred Mushroom Chant
BIONULOR is a one-man music project founded in 2006 by the Polish actor and educationist Sebastian Banaszczyk using his own working method named “100% sound recycling”. This 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.
BIONULOR has released three albums so far: the debut one “Bionulor” focused on the sounds of early music instruments, especially from the Middle Ages and Renaissance, “Sacred Mushroom Chant” was made on the basis of human voice (i.a. by Marcel Duchamp and Neil Armstrong), and “Erik” wholly dedicated to Erik Satie’s “Gymnopédies” composition.
BIONULOR also created music for theatrical plays: “Coriolanus” by William Shakespeare and the monodrama “SKAZAna” raising the subject of a sexually abused young girl. In 2014 he prepared a special multimedia performance “Stary Pisarz” (“The Old Writer”) dedicated to William S. Burroughs on the one hundredth birth anniversary of the American writer.
"Sacred Mushroom Chant" contains five tracks only using voices so heavily processed and de-constructed that they only form experimental ambient soundscapes based on the cut-up method. A really GREAT soundwork, to discover ! In the way of COLUMN ONE and Genesis P.ORRIDGE' solo works,... Comes in a 2-panel digipack, released in 2011. Total time : 51'50.
