Daniel Kordík – Poznova
Poznova is based on several field recordings taken between 2015 and 2019, and on the set played by Kordík at Café OTO in London on July 4th 2019. This was later assembled into 6 simple compositions with no overlaid sounds.The release focuses on sounds recorded during different times of a single day; starting with morning sounds and finishing with the sounds of the approaching night time.The title Poznova is an interplay between the words ‘Po’ (after) and ‘Znova’ (again). It’s about rebirth, repetition, and imperfection.
