URINATORIUM aims to seek, examine and process sounds that may be considered metabolic wastes of life and human activity. Occasionally, sonoric phenomena from human surroundings are included in the system, which is thought to be an inevitable consequence of the first premise. The aim of the experiments is mainly cognitive, however the resulting sound productions may be perceived in aesthetic categories – as music.
This endeavour was undertaken in 2005 by Hubert Wińczyk (H. Urinator) and/or Albert Schablack. Due to Albert’s health condition, only H. Urinator takes part in live performances. He is a member of an electro-acoustic band, kakofoNIKT. In his performances, H. Urinator uses tools, metal and plastic scraps, sine-wave tone generator, field recordings, dictaphones, his own (uh)human voice, contact microphones, radios, toy instruments for children and guitar pedal effects. During the recording stage, he works with MD recorder, dictaphones, loop station, reel-to-reel tape recorder, archive radio recordings and computer with various software.
"Les Ombres errantes" will be released in limited edition of 93. Each copy comes with a screenprinted cover.
