Listen to and enjoy guitars, banjo, ukulele, and balalaika on "Visite ma tente“, as well as a for once not whining clarinet, percussion and subtle samples. Some needed guests appear playing E-bass and drums. Macuso Vikovsky‘s penchant for unusual instruments – gathered at flea markets and second hand stores – resonates in an appealing range of quirky sounds.
Based on home recordings, years of accumulation of musical
material, sketches, first ideas, and fragments of preliminary sound
images, have been refined in the studio – solidified, concentrated
and distilled. 13 tracks take final form on „Visite ma tente“; acoustic
music with folk influences, carefree whistling and light-footed
sessions, playful and dreamy, gentle hymns without pathos; vocals
and instrumentation that weave into each other creating moods
and atmospheres, small, concise, sometimes surreal worlds. Macuso
Vikovsky plays in the singer-songwriter tradition, but avoids being
confessional or message-driven. His lyrics are different, drawn from
association and improvisation.
"Visite ma tente“, this means – accept the invitation and go
into a captivating wonderland of the musical gems and finely spun,
surprising sounds of a „loner musician“ (Macuso Vikovsky). It will
bring delight to those who want it.
