This is the first episode of a monthly podcast featured on Glitch.CZ. The format includes two musicians, always from two different continents, each playing an approximately 15 to 30 minute set. We hope this podcast will help spread awareness of diverse and emerging musical talents around the world.
This month features the Slovakian producer and monome masher, Foolk. Plus, an exclusive never before heard live set by San Fransisco’s Shipwrek, featuring material from his upcoming release titled ‘Ink’. An interview with Shipwrek follows his performance.
The Slovakia-born experimental music producer Dusan Vanco, has been working under the alias Foolk since 2007. His Music is like a colorful trip through layers of micro-sampling, cut beats, electronic soundscapes and intentional sound destruction. From his live sets you can expect a ton of sampling, beat cutting, and wonky experimentation with his Monome.
Shipwrek’s first release titled ‘Journal’ is a journey through the enchanted mundane. Having sampled everything from a forest’s wind to whistling strangers in a back-ally, Shipwrek has imbued his music with something intensely powerful. Experiences, thoughts, and feelings were recorded in a process he refers to as “music journaling”. Because of this, every track is like being on the verge of a new discovery yet simultaneously, there is a gentle familiarity.
