An architect of memorizable soundscapes, radiokoala makes soulful and inventive electronica unrestrained by genre crutches. His is music more intricate than what could be transcribed with notes; it's a whole sonic world, where one can only experience what they hear - at the very moment of listening. Trying to describe it thereafter could be tricky: bringing ethereal emotions and taking listener back to the episodes bygone, its textural ambience is too fragile to reproduce with words. Though, it depends. While there could be found examples of exquisite subtlety, like selected works #9 on a self-titled album (for where fragility is the most appropriate word), radiokoala doesn't restrain himself necessarily to solely meditative pieces of audio work. Sometimes he can go crushing with pondering analog kicks & low-frequency drones joined together for pulse-frequenting assault at the one's ears. This is what he does at Analog Explorations - an album intended to showcase raw and fortright character that is so characteristic for analogue and modular synthesizers. Finding himself in a position of an artist too flexile to hold on to any kind of formulaic composition, radiokoala would go anywhere far to not repeat himself even once. Analog Explorations is a record that has very distinct sonic signature, but it's not what is most important about it: rather the main idea was to showcase the extremes of sonic self-expression made possible by working with a carefully chosen set of various analogue devices.
