Vinyl version of Polish improvising trio Hinode Tapes’ debut album.
But don’t be fooled into thinking they’re newcomers to the scene – you may know their other bands and projects, such as Nanook of the North, Nene Heroine or wh0wh0. Piotr Chęcki (saxophone, sampler, OP-1), Piotr Kaliński (guitar, looper) and Jacek Prościński (percussion, log drum) venture onto a completely new musical path, blending ambient, free jazz and post-rock. Thanks to its improvised roots, Hinode Tapes feels both organic and focused.
Hinode (日の出) is a Japanese sunrise and true to its name, the project operates on minimal yet very picturesque soundscapes. The trio shuns from easily labelled esthetics and closed musical forms, laying heavy trance-based foundations instead.
„Hinode Tapes” was mixed by Kaliński who also came up with a graphic design. Cover photo is credited to Kamila Romejko, while mastering was done by Michał Kupicz.
