onlyone is joe kowalski is onlyone. on "adjective/ noun," as well as the first onlyone album, "swirl," joe plays all the parts, writes the songs, records it all, experiments, etc.
why "adjective/ noun"?
i was trying to think of a good title for the album. what to call it? so i broke it down and figured, well, i need a noun with an adjective describing it. adjective, noun. hmm... i kinda liked that. i have no idea why i placed the slash in between the two. i just wrote it that way once and thought it looked cool.
inspiration, ideas, directions...
i''m very inspired by a lot of world, especially african, music, along with western permutations of it -- peter gabriel, paul simon, david byrne/ brian eno ("my life in the bush of ghosts"), etc. i love the beatles. i love kate bush. brian eno is a production genius. i enjoy bulgarian vocal music and australian music. so, basically, this album is me pulling ideas and thoughts from anything and everything that catches my ear and trying to make something new and different out of the whole array. this is all anyone does, anyway, but, for me, this was a period that really began the expansion of my regular listening.
this album was recorded, mixed, and pondered from january, ''98 to january, ''01. finally releasing it before the next album is done.
hope you like it...
