Ingus Baušķenieks - Spoki (LP)
Spoki (Ghosts) is the sound of an artist putting their private sound world to tape. Exploring and pushing the limits of themselves and technology to realize the music in their head. Recorded in Riga between 1988-2011.
As Ingus Baušķenieks himself explains: “My own world differs a little from my friends' tastes. And - as my father said - the collective art is not art at all.”
The music of Ingus Baušķenieks is both deeply private and completely alien. Experimental yet happy to celebrate pop influences such as Engelbert Humperdinck, Simon & Garfunkel or Fleetwood Mac. It is shaped by the artist’s engagement with technology and his strive to put to record his ‘own world’.
As Ingus explains, it is the sound of him: “doing what I like to do.”.
