Boomkat Product Review:
Wonderfully irregular, colourful early computer music from Poland, produced 1987-1994 as an animation soundtrack by Andrzej Nowak, but only just reaching the wider world now in 2016 thanks to DUNNO Recordings, the contemporary Polish home to Lutto Lento and Heroiny.
The Cocktail Paint EP is full of decidedly cute, strange little sounds hyperactively arranged into giddy rhythms and curdled chromatics that sound like martian tribal rites or dippy themes for the misadventures of misshaped cuboid characters invented by Mark Mothersbaugh.
It’s perhaps perplexing then, that it was never used for its original purpose; to soundtrack animated movies. We’re not sure why this didn’t happen, and while it would be great to hear these pieces in conjunction with the original visuals, you’re encouraged to fill in the gaps with your own, maybe even make a little flick book of them to play with during rainy playtimes.
