Eta Carinae is the solo project of Grzegorz Bojanek, the founder of the net label:: www.etalabel.com
. He focuses mostly on ambient, experimental as well as electroacoustic music.
The first album (self-titled) was released in summer of 2002. It was inspired by the literature of Stanislaw Lem and Carl Sagan. The record has been acknowledged by the www.syntezatory.pl
website. One of his compositions was included on the "Sleep Well - chapter II" record, released by Requiem Records. In 2004 EC released its second album called "Movement…". A year later the next album "::3::" came out. Now you can listen to the compilation disc with remixes. On this album EC has collaborated with artists from Asia (PEI – Taiwan), North America (Andrew Duke – Canada) and Poland. During the concerts EC is very often supported by a jazz guitar player of the young generation, Michal Kolasinski. They played together for the first time in Zacheta National Gallery in Warsaw during WEF 2005 and again in 2006. Eta Carinae performed also several radio live acts in national BIS Polish Radio.
Nowadays Grzegorz concentrates also on the Warsaw Electronic Festival. He organizes concerts of the young Polish electronic artists in Poland. This initiative is called WEF ON TOUR and so far WEF artists have played in cities like: Czestochowa, Poznan, Radom and Lódz.
Grzegorz, together with Zen Lu (China) is also a founder of the Polish - Chinese project ChoP. Both musicians confront their cultures and create new quality of sound which can be described as organic ambient. The music is based on the samples recorded in China and Poland. Several other musicians from China and Poland were invited to take part in the project. The second album called “8 Rooms” was released by Tom Pauszek (Poland) and Dickson Dee (China). Soon, new albums will be available.
The 4th regular Eta Carinae album is now available. It was published by www.weplayrec.cn
. On this album Grzegorz mainly concentrates on mixture of the live instruments, field recording and electronic sounds.
Nowadays Greg is preparing an album which will contain tracks recorded during the concerts which he played around Poland in 2008. He also started a project called "08Deutschland" where aound-artists from Poland create tracks in the basis of the field recordings Greg recorded during his short visit to Germany. So stay tunned.
