Nature and outdoor lover, hiker, sound collector, music composer, photographer and graphic artist from Mragowo, Poland, currently living and working in Inverness, Scotland, UK
Born a while ago in Poland I was part of Amiga demo-scene as graphician and music composer (nickname TeeS). I started experimenting with sounds and recording music with computers, trackers and simple samplers around 1992,recording and collecting sounds with Sony MiniDisc recorder and slowly building my home studio and moving towards more advanced gear and software. I now live in Inverness, Scotland, have a small home studio with hardware samplers, synthesizers and few acoustic instruments and still enjoy recording music under the name Subradial, grainySKY, Uphorm, Electrees and few others...
I work as a landscape photographer, often exploring Scottish Highlands and Lofoten area in Norway, running photography workshops and also recording sounds from the locations I visit, you can find my photography work at:
I was always inspired by listening to the sounds of the environment surrounding my home town as well as listening to electronic music. I like when music is created in emotional and experimental way. I use everything that sounds interesting and what I can further process to create the imagined soundscape, a vision of some place, express my emotions or moods connected with particular times or places, either existing in real life or just imagined/dreamed. I love to experiment with sounds, especially heavily processed found sounds and field recordings. There are unlimited sources of fascinating sounds everywhere around us, even without the use of analogue or digital instruments you can create interesting music made from 'recycled' found sounds and field recordings. I am a maniacal sound collector with vast archives of field recordings from Scotland, Poland, Slovakia...
