Andromeda's Mystery

Released by Bivak Records, distributed by Animal Music and Supraphon.

During the time of the pandemic in 2021 three old friends formed a new band with the idea of exploring new sonic possibilities and illuminating rhythm and harmony in a different way. Although David Dorůžka, Piotr Wyleżoł and Jeff Ballard have known each other for years, they met in this particular setting for the first time in the spring of 2021 to record new music written by all three of them. The sound of the band relies heavily on analog electronic instruments, simple melodies and intricate grooves and the focus of the musicians is on fusing old and new sounds and approaches into a unique synthesis that characterizes the world of today. Together they set forth to explore uncharted territories, eagerly searching for the key to "Andromeda's Mystery".
