Addicted to music making since 1993. 23 Id is my newest (and ONLY SOLO) experimental project. The Polish combo ODPAD (in English it could be eg Waste Product) was formed at one of the flats in Wola, Warsaw in May 1993, 116 years after T.A.Edison had invented a phonograph. ODPAD was set up by two sound buffs: Bujalex and Novak. They were enchanted with experimental, new wave, punk, techno, noise, hardcore, minimal. They both couldn't bear mass culture and consumption as a predominant way of living. For them it is better to be gone in delightful chaos than in dull torpor. They didn't want to conform. Only 10-meter room had to be capable of holding the whole acoustic space. Psychoacoustic obsession made the room breathe. Although their work was a typical lo-fi they wanted the harsh sounds to be portrayed with realistic scale. It was ODPAD's secretly raised and really artificial world. Their songs were not songs, just sounds filled up with emotions. At the beginning ODPAD used to tape the sounds of typical home "instruments": plastic dustbin, washing machine lid and radiator. They cut a wax using a typical home deck and...walkman cans (throughout the time it became the most important band instrument). Mike, of course amatourish and a bit out of order, appeared after 2 years. This music is gloomy (but from time to time nutso grotesque), bizarre and noisy, you can find here experimental flavourings with a clear soundstage. As a rhythm section Bujalex and Novak used plastic dustbin, pouffes, carpet, real side-drum and cymbals, can-mic rustles and out of tune 3-stringed acoustic fiddle with flying neck as a slap bass. Additionally, 6-stringed Russian acoustic guitar, mouth harp for kids, combs, spoons, pots and two-cassette boogie-box for background effects). All sessions were cut without any mixer (only boogie-box with MIXING IN). They were usually a dozen or so hours long and the sound tuning was truly important. In 1995 Golab, Bujalex's friend from s tudies, joined the band. He played drums and lipped. No sooner had the set disbanded in 1996 (after analogue synthi and effects processor appeared) the Zwichnieci Dandysi (Wrenched Dandies) came into existence. But, you KNOW, that's another story...
