The first TILT project was CD DVOJNIK / THE DOUBLE (1999) which was
collaboration with Slovene poet Primož Čučnik.
There, we were combining concrete sounds with improvised material in a
song-like forms, and were exploring possibilities of translating spoken
word into musical experience in a communicative way. The album consists
of seven poems set against sound environments and three purely musical
pieces. The CD is a hybrid of “hit songs”, improvisations,
environmental soundscapes, musical compositions, and sound experiments.
As it doesn’t burden itself with stylistic limitations, DVOJNIK / THE
offers a 50-minute schizophrenic trip through various co-installations
of meaning and sound, where playing, singing and speech intertwine and
interflow in a sample of solid sounds.
The entirely domestic production gives DVOJNIK / THE DOUBLE a robust
freshness and a raw indirectness.
