In 2008 I released the first part of Sound Canvas inviting such artists like Lawrence English, Sawako, Wouter van Veldhoven, Alva Noto, Frank Bretschneider, Alexei Borisov, Anton Nikkilä, Knut Aufermann, Frans de Waard, Heribert Friedl, Sascha Neudeck, Zenial, and myself to contribute a track. The first part dealt with sound art and minimal music and I was going to release a second part with improvised and noise music a bit later in 2009. The compilation was almost ready and something happened that hindered me from releasing it. Perhaps it had to do with the main label, Mikroton Recordings. No, I don’t remember why I didn’t do it.

Now almost 10 years later I decided to release the second part. The first part had to do, more or less, with its subtitle, with sound art and minimal music. Nowadays it’s impossible to name exactly what musicians are doing. I cannot definitely name what I do as a musician. It looks like a postmodern mix of everything what has been done before, not specially long before, it could be done 5 years ago or even a year ago. OK, I’ll stick to the term which I dislike a lot because it denotes whatever comes to mind, it depends mostly on personal listening habits and experience. Experimental music. I decided to make a compilation which could reflect my own personal view on what is going on interesting (of course, for me) fields of music. I found where to start and quickly I saw who I could invite. These are the artists who are strongly opinionated about their own music and with definitely strong individual styles of music making. Here it is, Sound Canvas 2 with 27 tracks by 35 musicians.
