Do you know what I like about planning? …nothing…absolutely nothing…and do you know why? because it doesn’t really matter, and here we are. A newborn experiment turned out to be so captivating I just couldn’t resist.
I’m not gonna bore you with details about how this colossus of a sound is being made, however, I can tell you that this is actually a song from start to finish. It has all the instruments, everything is recorded  “a” standard way and yet it doesn’t sound like it. For years I’ve been trying to find a way to glitch my songs the way they would sound as sick as other stuff I make and there you go, 34 minutes long monster of a sound. If you can’t go through the whole colossus then please be patient, I’ve already prepared 5 mins version to which we’re planning to drop adequate video 😛
This is the first step towards an expansion I am planning. First of all, I’m coming back to one of my initial ideas, some of the new  stuff will be instrumental only, the same as [noema], some may even appear in two versions. All those albums will be called [NH]. Also in the pipeline are, two new concepts, but about them later.
All the best in the new year…..the year of [sick_studio]!
Thought you might be interested in how we’ve managed to pull this off…
Last Sunday, Dec. 5th we premiered our latest video [cluster_B]. As per usual this was a long-overdue, for some reason it always takes ages to do something exciting. The track itself was written almost two years ago and went through countless alterations before I even considered it good enough to share it with Lucas. It all started with a basic idea, we knew one thing, it needed to be worthy of a Track. We’ve always wanted to work with Lucas, and when the right opportunity came along, we immediately decided that [stop-motion] will be the best platform. Having previous #little experience with [stop-motion] and knowing the limitations of that method we’ve started writing.
Here’s the first video we made using stop-motion.
I’m not saying it was easy, scripts are always challenging, plus the reality and availability of various products required to simply do the job are not something easy to deal with. I think it is fair to say that we’ve started pre-production somewhere around April 2021. We had a basic script with a list of shots we’d like to make, however, we tend to leave room for improvisation which plays a huge part in our creating process especially for me when it comes to writing the music. This time wasn’t any different. We knew that in order to take this production to the next level we need to combine various methods of filming. Obviously wanting is one thing…
So, long story short we’ve decided that we’ll shoot [cluster_B] on green screen, and like this wouldn’t be enough we’ll try to amalgam it with the traditional way of making a video with stop-motion techniques.
We’ve split the ideas in half and took on the building of the model. I never tend to keep a record of what I do, I get so immersed into the creation process, I instantly forget about surroundings and the fact it would be cool to show later how the stuff was made. Luckily Przemek aka “J-sick” Trzaskowski keeps a record of some of the scenes and builds he makes. Below I’ve gathered a few time-lapses from the build we’d like to share with you. I hope you’ll find this equally exciting and inspiring.
Thanks for being here with us and feel free to share this story, if you have any comments or questions you know you can always write to us, we may not answer straight away but we definitely will asap.
and here’s the final product in case you haven’t seen it yet…
in case you wondering when this will hit streaming platforms or will it ever make it to CD, then the answer is “possibly”, “that’s the plan”, “maybe”
sorry, I can’t give you any concrete details, we simply don’t know it yet. The plan is always the same, look for a publisher – when failed, publish it yourself heheh, anyway be patient with us and enjoy the new stuff!
This year, roughly around July – August, we’ll mark a decade since  has been published, 11 years altogether or so… Honestly I can’t believe it has been that long, it feels like yesterday or at least like couple of years ago, but 10 years? nah hehe….
Anyway, to celebrate our anniversary we’ve got few things planned, for some you’ll have to wait a lil bit, other should be with you shortly.
We’ve planned three releases this month hitting: Spotify , Apple Music , iTunes , Instagram/Facebook , TikTok/Resso , YouTube Music , Amazon , Soundtrack by Twitch , Pandora , Deezer , Tidal , iHeartRadio , ClaroMusica , Saavn , Boomplay , Anghami , KKBox , NetEase , Tencent , Triller (beta) , Yandex Music (beta) , MediaNet
First: is long overdue [split] featuring Mały form Mass Insanity, sadly without Moupoger (their stuff ain’t ready yet)
Second: [coherence] previously released only on bandcamp
Third: [split] the mind – a 6 track mini-album from YouTube video we’ve made earlier
All those releases can be pre-saved in Spotify, links below
…however if you’re not a fan of streaming services we’ll be releasing hi-res audio via our website, later via bandcamp, finally CD, help us decide whether there’s even a point releasing our stuff on CD these days?, help us by voting below,
In case you’ve missed it, we have a new video. Two years in planning including song writing and researching. I have to say it wasn’t easy, but I think everything came together nicely. Video is packed with a bunch of easter eggs including reference to Rorschach character from DC universe as the only character I appreciate from DC hehehe, #being proper Marvel fan. Actually, this is my hidden reference to Hermann Rorschach and his test, which inspired me to do series of images “When Left becomes Right” all you can find on my instagram profile, also since Marcin “Mały” Brzeźnicki is a big fan of DC, we thought this would become a fine addition to the whole concept.
Our Video is based on actual 1996′ chess match between Grand Master Garry Kasparov and Deep Blue chess computer considered as first AI in the modern history to win in the game of chess. Deep Blue’s win was seen as symbolically significant, a sign that artificial intelligence was catching up to human intelligence and could defeat one of humanity’s great intellectual champions. In our interpretation of this game AI is played by the mask which flashes with holographic images of greatest minds such as Albert Einstein, Marie Curie, Nikola Tesla, Stephen Hawking, Michael Faraday, Carl Sagan, Aldous Huxley, Philip K. Dick, Albert Hofmann, Sigmunt Freud and many many more, all mashed up together. It has been 25 years since February the 10th, 1996′, the day we’ve understood that one day our creation may become something far greater than us, therefore we thought it would be a good idea to celebrate this event in anticipation for SKYNET to blow us to kingdom come.
Coincidentally, the idea for the lyrics came from Marcin himself, just like all lyrics on the [split]. Marcin wanted to reflect on the ironic competition interaction and zero-one laws we’re all bound by. In this case I only suggested the title change, since [zero-sum game] fitted perfectly the concept I had in mind for a game of chess that J-sick since forever wanted to shoot.
Quite often we decide to include some opening lines that reflect on general concept of either album or video, however this time we decided to refer to the next track that we’d like to shoot the video for as well as the [zero-sum game]. Not giving away too much the next track will be called: [post futuristic act of cosmogenesis].
Below I attached few pics from shooting plan courtesy of J-Sick and Marcin’s Lyrics plus all the text from the video.
“Sometimes people don’t want to hear the truth because they don’t want their illusions destroyed.“
Zero-sum game In game theory and economic theory, a zero-sum game is a mathematical representation of a situation in which each participant’s gain or loss of utility is exactly balanced by the losses or gains of the utility of the other participants. If the total gains of the participants are added up and the total losses are subtracted, they will sum to zero.
On February 10, 1996, after three hours, world chess champion Garry Kasparov loses the first game of a six-game match against Deep Blue, an IBM computer capable of evaluating 200 million moves per second.
Deep Blue’s win was seen as symbolically significant, a sign that artificial intelligence was catching up to human intelligence and could defeat one of humanity’s great intellectual champions.
Lyrics by: Marcin “Mały” Brzeźnicki
indoctrination seeks to justify destruction reset it all and kill no more, reset it all wash away filthy human kind
blessed be the strength of earthly nature blessed be the power of untapped human mind
the balance must be maintained even at the price of human kind the balance must be maintained even at the price of genocide
lost all rights gain or die lost in a zero sum game
zero sum game
humanity has passed a death sentence on itself blessed be the one and only the circle of life
one with the tide one with cleansing one with the fury one with life
Our work is now officially done! this means [SPLIT] is ready! however this is only the half of the story, we’re still waiting for project MAUPOGER to finish up their stuff and only then we’ll be able to talk dates, in the meantime we’ve decided to tease you a little bit with BONUS material that has been composed last year and for some reason fits perfectly within concept of new things. It’s called “[SPLIT] the mind” and you can download it below for free! (mp3). We’ve decided that it would be best if we showcase those tracks in more SICKSTUDIO style. One thing lead to another and we’ve created over 10min. long video which consist of ACT I-VI (with hidden fragments of actual tracks from the [split], however music with sneak peak of [SPLIT] is exclusive to the YouTube video only, hope you’ll enjoy!
This took longer than I thought it would, ….. …for some reason, anyway pleased to tell you that brand new video for a track called [8+D2.0] which translates to “[STD] 2.0.”, will air on 24.01.2021 @8:00PM CET on YouTube (link below). This experiment will open an idea that came around November 2019. Track will feature Marcin “Mały” Brzeźnicki from [Mass Insanity] on vocals (if you like a good old classic death metal you have to check them out!), who initiated the idea. Track will be release along with 4 other compositions on the split with a project [MAUPOGER] later this year. This is the first single in history of  which lyrics are written entirely in polish by Marcin. Stay tuned for more info regarding this release, hope you like the video! stay safe!
No, this is not gonna be another kindle edition of some questionable quality novel. We’re planning few things along with a new album, and yes we can call that a concept, there will be few big changes that may affect our social media image, also availability of our music online will be reduced to this website maybe even ‘alone’, where you’ll be able to pre-order it, buy it or download it for free, anyway we’ll keep you posted…but just in case subscribe to our newsletter, cheers! #4672 #paradigmblindness #newalbum
Here’s a bold move, …because we dare to dream!, celebrating a new year, a few upcoming releases we’ve got for you planned already for 2020, and YES “few” means more than just one. The new website seemed to be the only logical choice to get us there. Here’s a trick, the plan is simple, however challenging and in order us to succeed we need You on board, here’s why and where?!: recently we’ve discovered that social media websites have been gradually reducing our exposure, which we don’t appreciate, plus already impossible task of reaching you all out there has become excruciatingly hard, not pointing fingers towards any specific website, but you know which one plays the biggest part in that equation. Anyway, the plan: We’d like to start posting news, create new content, offer free downloads, early access to new music and exclusive content which will not be available anywhere else plus much more. Where? here! on this website! There’s a buttload of content already hidden here, for a start, Hopefully at some point we’ll be able to stop relying on social media hehehe, and we know, it is a wishful thinking but we’d like to try anyway. Here’s what you need to do, subscribe to our newsletter: form below, but only if you wish to subscribe, ok?! and only if you wish to get that exclusive content, and for a time being we’ll be using form on facebook as well, as shown below, simply head on to Email Signup, and do the rest, simple as…
if all works out, there’ll be only one place to get new  and that’s the whole point. Let us know if you dig this idea and share this, spread the word the old school style! and of course stay tuned!
