alone at last | cd sirr 0031
Alone at last' is a studio album, written over the first decade of
Janek's career as a composer, sound artist, and musician. Each piece
is a response to an invitation. The source sounds are produced using
location recordings and manipulated vinyl, which are simply processed
through his collection of foot pedals & mixing desk, and then
assembled on screen. Anamnesis - refers to the ability of sound to
trigger mental images in our minds eye. Each new image is unique to
each of us - and they are all uniquely framed within the evocative
The CD is housed in an elegant 100% black jewelcase with an 8 page
black & white booklet of Janek's photography.
Janek was born in England to Polish and Canadian parents in 1970.
While studying architecture at the Royal College of Art [RCA annual
prize], he recorded the fragmented noises of a sound activated
dictaphone travelling overnight through the Post Office. That work,
titled 'Recorded Delivery'  was made for the 'Self Storage'
exhibition [Time Out critics choice] with one time postman Brian Eno
and Artangel. Since then the multiple aspects of sound became his
focus, resulting in many releases, installations, soundtracks for
exhibitions, and concerts using his self built/invented record
players with electroacoutisc collage. The 'Tri-phonic
Turntable'  is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the
'World's Most Versatile Record Player'. He has performed, lectured
and exhibited widely throughout Europe [Sonar, Tate Modern, ICA], USA/
Canada, [The Walker, XI, Mutek, Princeton], Japan, and Australia
[Sydney Opera House].
