" Well, here is the new opus by Klimperei, entirely composed
and recorded in three weeks, half improvised with myself (hence
the title). Partly improvised indeed as playing with myself obviously
diminish the nearly continuous surprise component one could find
playing with different people, even if my memory is quite short.
Vol. 1 because I really enjoyed the principle and wish to repeat
this exercise in the future
Few guitar, banjo or charango
tunings, few premeditations, random synth settings, everything was
done very quickly, every pieces overlapping and contaminating each
other). Censorless recordings, sometimes in fragments, as they were
I used many punch in/out, some cut / copy / paste,
a few self-samples (near 10'20 there's a loop made from an old piece
by Klimperei), Lola's appearances here and there, virtually no mixing
A kind of entertainment after working to rather structured projects.

IWM proposes an original conception of improvisation both tonal
and amusing, a spontaneous and quick approach to overdubbing. This
new InPolySons' collection consists of purposely simple CD with
black and white cardboard sleeve to free ourselves from expensive
costs and diminish plastic pollutions. IWM (1) is part of a limited
edition cd series that should be followed by new releases to initiate
a conceptual work. A sustainable CD
