Creationism is a story about the formation of sounds from tremors, vibrations and frequencies; it’s a return to the beginning of the world - to times before rhythm, melody and harmony came into being, when nothing had yet been established. It’s my search for balance between melody and non-melody, form and lack of form, closed and open, pretty and ugly. The album is mainly comprised of improvisations, and there are also two compositions.
The first is the ballad Mountains, Forests, Heavens and Meadows, which announces the end of planet Earth’s formation, providing sounds with a specific shape and parameters; the second, Sideways, is a swinging and dissonant closing. I played the final piece on the most ruined and out-of-tune piano I had encountered - it’s a collection of atoms from the inside of the black hole that’s at the center of our galaxy. Kuba Płużek
