Kasia Maliszewska: C4 live show announced

C4 Band consists of:
Catherine Maliszewska - guitar
Wojciech Pruszyński - keyboards
Peter Stepek - bass
Peter Budniak - drums

C4 team was formed at the end of 2011, transforming the guitar-drum duo up to the present, four-seat storage. We play mostly instrumental compositions by me, which (as I decided) lying too long in the proverbial "drawer". And so the meeting with his colleagues was like a bolt of lightning. Provided me with very positive energy and motivation to work on songs, which have long wanted to share ... Their final form is, however, the result is not only my ideas, but suggestions and musical sensitivity of each team member. This is not classical music, this is not just blues, this is not jazz itself, nor is it rock, folk and fusion .... A instrumental stories that everyone can interpret differently.

Why is C4?
- "C" is like a four
- There are four of us
- We're positively loaded with the music we play .. :)

During the concert will be held on the twentieth anniversary of the opening of the Festival Blues on the beaver. Will be seen in dozens of works by Gregory Sidorowicz and Leszek "WordHex" Żukrowski, showing great years, "Blues on the Bober," The people who create the atmosphere, wonderful musicians and friends ...

The concert supports the Hofner - one of the known and leading brands of musical instruments, which I recommend :))). Thank you!

Cordially invite you to the bakery Silent Women in Zielona Gora, on the last Saturday in March 2011 in the chair. 20.00. Tickets cost 15 zloty to purchase before the concert.

See you there!

András Ispán: Minotaur Project

Annamária Kiss her painting.
Here's the second part of the Escape Solaris trilogy as the first original track of this year. To get around the same story I've shared with you so many times, let me shorten it: one main goal of the Minotaur Project was always to invite my friends, whom with I used to play, or those musicians, who left a major impact on me. I have a list in my head from the very beginning that consists a lot of names; András "Bandi" Ispán was one of the biggest among them.
I have to say this is a release I'm profoundly proud of for two main reasons: as first, musically I think this is the most settled and concrete piece I have written so far. Second of all, my all-time bass hero and my former teacher, who happens to be also a very good friend of mine, and probably the greatest influence on me musically, is involved.
I don't know if I could really express to all of you how I feel - I think maybe Steve Vai feels the same when he plays with Satriani. Bandi have seen me at the very beginning of my journey (I couldn't yet play a single note properly on bass), he taught me the very basics, also he's the ultimate reason why I got into bass from a technical aspect, as well as into sound engineering. His example has given me the courage to send my application to the same music school where he finished with a teacher-diploma before we even met (I actually went to the same bass teacher as he did), and gave also the courage to leave my home country, to pursue my fantasies of being a pro musician. It's a great honor to have him playing on my song, and also a big achievement for me. In short, he's my hero.
After years of studying in Budapest and being the member of one of the greatest blues band in the history of Hungary (Deák Bill Motoblues Band), he returned to his home, Novi Sad, Serbia a few years ago. His name can be found on a wide variety of albums amongst the doom-gothic Metal AMOK's debut release, on the CD of his former avant-garde group Corpus Delicti, and as a "specially thanked" on a LOT of CDs for recording basslines (or guitars even), for lending his remarkable collection of equipment, or helping out in the studio in some ways.
It's been years since we have actually met :)
To make this release even more interesting for us, instead of guitar solos I decided to include two bass solos, one done by him, and one done by me. We didn't discuss how they should be done - nothing at all. For all of you out there: this is a great chance to see where my bass sound originates from - also if you look closely we have a similar approach towards writing/playing a bass solo, which I find amazing, since both of us has done their solos, before having the chance to hear what the other came up with.
I also used quotes exclusively from the biggest impact of sci-fi movies that I have on my life, The Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
All-in-all I feel fortunate that this work of ours has finally comes to light. :)
The song is about the voyage of humanity leaving Earth, to find a new home planet. A vocal version is getting done, I think the lyrics will explain very well what I had in mind while composing this part.
The Escape Solaris returns with the 3rd instrumental part in february.
Technical stuff:
I used my Warwick Thumb 2011 SE Custom for most of the parts, and my newly-bought Warwick 2001 Streamer LX Custom Holoflash for the solo. Both has MEC pickups.
Tuning: Thumb: B-E-A-D, Streamer: E-A-D-G.
Prolude BHV 450L bass amp (lineout output straight into the Line6 interface).
I'm proudly using and being endorsed by
for all bass recordings (except for the solo by András Ispán).
For the solo I used TECH21 SansAmp, my newly-bought Soundblox Bass Envelope and Bass Ring, the track has got some (amp modeled) distrotion from my Line6 HD Pro.
Rotosound Swing60 strings in both cases, Planet Waves Pro and Monster cables, t.c. electronic tuner.
Equipment used by András Ispán:
Kramer 720 bass with Rotosound Swingbass SM66 (roundwound 40-100 stainless steel) strings.
Vintage Morley Power Wah Fuzz (used as a wah), and a Russian Big Muff Pi Fuzz pedal, Klotz cables
A korean Squier Showmaster, B-E-A-G-Db-B tuning, D'addario Steel strings, light gauge, Line6 POD HD Pro modeling amplifier.
