Buy Description Track Listing
Movements, noises, drones, horns, bleeps, textures, voices, vibrations -- Last Snowman
is a departure even for Gnom i Snegovik, since all tracks (except the last)
were recorded in a multitrack program rather than live with a couple of microphones at a concert or rehearsal - the usual method of recording employed by Gnom i
Snegovik. Moreover, all participants were recorded independently, under the simple rhythmic/harmonic sketches sent to them via email by Gnom i Snegovik frontman
Danila Grethenevsky. And, accordingly, the musicians had not even heard what others had recorded. The final product is a collage of the recorded tracks. The
author and performer of texts on the album is Belarusian free-jazz saxophonist Frederick Samotny, also known under the alias Oos Sadam.
