I usually don’t mix my personal life with that of my Headphone Commute persona (although, arguably, it’s always one and the same), but this time it feels slightly appropriate. A nasty strain of flu has put me out of commission for almost a week, and so I’ve been away from words, from music, and from you. Today feels like a struggle just to sit up, hit play and focus into the glow of monitors. Yet somehow the music holds the key to that once felt sense of normalcy, and so I strive to cultivate the energy within, the energy that comes from sound. Today’s sonic trip comes courtesy of Piotr Cisak, a Gdansk (Poland) based artist with works on Crónica media label, Cruel Nature Records, and an upcoming cassette release on Twin Spring Records, titled De Memoria Et Reminiscentia due out on April 1st. Here’s to music being a single continuously morphing constant in our lives! I hope that you’ll enjoy and support the featured artists!
