about

BITP017DL

Digital download includes bonus track + exclusive PDF songbook.

'Bahar' is the fifth album by Polish born / New England based producer, vocalist and sound artist, Derek Piotr, and his his debut for Bit-Phalanx, and finds Piotr delivering unfussy, straight-forward beat-work and his most direct and confident vocal lines to date. The album title, as with many of Piotr's titles, can be interpreted several ways. In Turkish, Bahar means "spring”, but can also be translated from Maltese to mean "sea".

The album was recorded with four woodwind players and showcases Piotr's classical training for the first time in his solo career. Since his debut full length, AGORA, Piotr has eschewed conventional notation in favor of intuitive and electro-acoustic composition processes, but Bahar marks a return to his formal education.

Bahar follows the 2014 release of Tempatempat (Monotype Recordings) to critical acclaim (“one-of-a-kind sound” - XLR8R. “A whole, deliberate and clear agenda” - ATTN:Mag).

Piotr abandons Tempatempat‘s complex programming and abstract vocal play in favor of blunt outsider pop with personal lyrical content. The record was entirely self-produced. Artwork for the album was completed by Antye Greie-Ripatti (aka AGF), and mastered by Cory Allen at Altered Ear.
