The Polish village of Stara Rzeka and its surrounding countryside were devastated by a huge tornado on July 14, 2012. Stara Rzeka (Kuba Ziolek) was present to witness the aftermath. This self-titled piece opens to the crackle of electricity in the air and a distinct impression of menace. The distortion softens, but never truly fades, as it gives way to song. Eventually this human presence, like the tornado, departs to leave the composition sounding like the land itself; wounded but brimming with life, buzzing and psychedelic.
