Next week music e-tailer Bleep will release an album compiled entirely of unsigned, unknown and generally unheard electronic producers from all over the world.
Aptly named ‘Filtered’, the concept was one of discovery, drawing from the fertile online electronic scene. Filtered began by selecting ten tracks from a possible four thousand demos. The end result is an album incorporating the varied and disparate sounds of today’s varied electronic music landscape.
Here, i-D online lifts the lid on one of the tip top tracks that made the cut. Bartek Kajdasz, aka Goerserr, is a 25-year-old producer from Koziegłowy, Poland. His track ‘Fairy Ring Fungi‘ is a record of shimmering detail with a subversive pop sensibility. i-D online caught-up with Goerserr to find out the process behind his music and how he found out about this unique project.
Tell us about your influences?
First records that inspired me to do something was Chiastic Slide from Autechre, In Sides from Plaid, Not For Threes from and Bjork’s Homogenic. I also like Herbie Hancock, Weathe Report, Sun Ra some rock and music composed by Steve Reich, Paweł Szymański, Witold Lutosławski.
How long have you been making music?
I started about 13 years ago, but I’ve been doing it more seriously for the past seven years. I am using mostly computer, some hardware synthesizers and microphones for recording instruments and some other sounds. The most important part of creating a track for me is listening to it and deciding whether it’s good or not. My track ‘Fairy Ring Fungi’ was made 100% digitally on my old setup which I don’t own anymore. Programmed, composed and mixed on a cheap Panasonic stereo…
How did you hear about Filtered?
From Bleep’s newsletter. All the shortlisted tracks were great so it must have been a hard choice for people at Bleep.
Filtered will be available to buy from Bleep and selected download stores from April 23rd.
