Myth and Impermanence is the brand new album from Inch-time, the electronic project of London based Australian producer and musician Stefan Panczak.
The album is out via Panczak’s own imprint Mystery Plays and it sees Panczak blending his seductive and warm electronica with beautiful jazz instrumentation. “I felt limited just using software and the occasional guitar or keyboard to create my music.”, said Panczak. “When you use a sample or a midi instrument you lose all the nuances and subtleties of a real instrument; every time it plays it is exactly the same. The brain picks up on that and it soon becomes repetitive.” This led him to invite three renown British jazz players, trumpeter Alex Bonney, bassist Olie Brice and drummer Karl Penney, to contribute to the album. “I had them play over the existing tracks, writing some melodies and motifs for them but also having them freely improvise.”
Panczak describes Myth and Impermanence as a conceptual album where “we journey from the city to the country, from light to darkness. By the end of this first song we have left the temporal world and we are ready to explore the shadow world of myths and dreams.”
