about

[ENG]

The whole album is focused on irregular rhythms, synthesizers and polyphonic approach to composition. Instruments used on the album are ranging from drums to guitars and various keyboards like synthesizers, some analog and some in the form of software. I used my voice on a couple of tracks where I felt the melody needed this colour, but still I avoided the use of words so to retain the instrumental and more ambient approach. There are atmospheres ranging from very ambient and drone-like to more psychedelic club-type of things, and all in between. The album is connected in whole, so when you hit play, the music is going almost non-stop from beginning to the end, with tracks using only as markers of the individual segments. The name of the album "Fantazija" comes from listening to some piano pieces written by Brahms, that are written in the form of fantasia. It is one of the many cyclic forms used in the 19th century romantic classical music, and I found it to be ideal for this piece of music. Of course, the word Fantasia has other meanings, which I leave to the listener to forge her or his own meaning from it.

Album Fantazija je fokusiran na nepravilne mjere i ritmove, sintesajzere i polifoni pristup kompoziciji. Od instrumenata koristio sam bubnjeve, gitare, razne sintesajzere, softverske programe i neke analogne klavijature. Na nekim mjestima koristim i glas, ali više kao zvukovnu boju kako bih zadržao ambijentalni i instrumentalni pristup. Stilski album prolazi kroz čitav niz različitih žanrova, od ambijentalnih drone atmosfera do više klupski izraženijih ritmova, i svega što se nalazi između. Album je povezan u jednu cijelinu tako da glazba u kontinuitetu priča svoju priču od kad stisnete play pa sve do samoga kraja. Naziv Fantazija označava prvenstveno glazbenu formu koja proizlazi još iz 19. stoljeća kad su u formi fantazije pisali skladatelji klasične glazbe. Slušajući neke klavirske skladbe koje je napisao Brahms, a koje su upravo u toj formi, sinulo mi je da je to savršeni naslov i oblik koji mogu iskoristiti za svoj materijal. Naravno, riječ fantazija očito ima i druga značenja koja ostavljam slušatelju i slušateljici da otkriju sami za sebe.
