Hello everyone, I’m 1/2 and it’s nice to be here. Been a fan of synth noise ever since childhood (the very first “keyboard” I played was the Olympia typewriter, very percussive and it gave you words on paper in both, black and red
During the late 90s, I formed a duo with a friend - called Narrow. It lasted til 2009 when we self-released our final mini-album, ‘Nonsense of Adventure’ and the accompanying ‘Top of the Pops’ single (these can still be heard via myspace > http://www.myspace.com/narrowatd in their entirety)
German label (T)reue Um (T)reue kindly released a posthumous selection of our work in early 2010 - still available standard copies of the album, we called “From DIY With Love”. More information can be obtained via http://www.tutrur.com where there’s plenty more to discover from.
During Narrow days, I started experimenting as Umrijeti za strojem which is personally regarded sort of a manifesto rather than a ‘band’ or a ‘music project’. It was heavily motivated and inspired by a group of personal friends, whose music I admire enormously (Monofonik and Illegal Emotions in particular) plus legendary Yugoslavian groups - Beograd, Dorian Gray, Borghesia and Paraf.
UZS occasionally materialises in a 3” or 5” single form. For your evidence, feel more than welcome to give it all a listen (or two) at http://www.myspace.com/umrijetizastrojem or recently via http://www.umrijetizastrojem.bandcamp.com
After Narrow ceased their operation, in early 2009 I adopted a numeral phrase 1/2 (simbolically in a reference to continue recording alone), but it furtherly developed into sort-of concept with “partial” deliveries (either solo or participating in other projects - the latter you might be familiar with; Neither/Nor, formed with another friend and electronic music enthusiast - erehwoN (of Cable Bends Steel and X_trackT fame) who provides the music while I’m in charge of the vocals and lyrics. A split 7” single featuring Umrijeti za strojem (the original version of “Strana A” from UZS 2007 debut 3” single) and Neither/Nor (our very first recording called “Against”) is being released during late 2010 on Genetic Music. The single should still be available at http://www.geneticmusic.de, while more work in progress can also be heard via Neither/Nor’s myspace page > http://www.myspace.com/nnor
And as for my numeral ‘half’, feel welcome to drop by and listen to some currently self-released pieces on http://www.innumerals.bandcamp.com
I guess, that’ll be all for now… Thank you.
