A Sonic Tribute to Zbigniew Karkowski (1958-2013)
An update on the sound compilation tribute to Zbigniew Karkowski.
As of today, I have already received the contributions from 13 people.
Almost one hundred artists, however, said they’d contribute and many of you
have asked for an extension of the January 31st deadline.
Therefore, the deadline for sending your tracks/pieces has been extended to:
Another additional reason for this extension is that I’ve just received
confirmation that we have found the resources (available only from March)

DVD with uncompressed audio files, due to the amount of total recorded
This would be through the non-profit “SONM” initiative (Sound Archive of
Experimental Music and Sound Art) I created as few years ago in the
“Puertas de Castilla” Cultural Center in Murcia, Southern Spain:
Some of Zbigniew’s work, which he personally pased on to me, is already in
and also –thanks to the contributions of Thomas BW Bailey and Carl Michael

Those resources include being able to send 5 copies of the physical release
to all participating artists. Any distribution of any remaining copies
(SONM is not a label/distributor and is a non-profit organization) will go
into covering some manufacturing+postage expenses. If any profits are made
(unfortunately very unlikely) they will all go to Atsuko Nojiri, partner of
In addtion to this, an online / streaming-only release of the compilation
will also be done in parallel through the SONM Archive website.
With best regards,
