I’m a motion picture dialogue editor. I spend weeks, even months, locked in a small space with the actors that make up a film. I make them more articulate, sexier, and generally more appealing. I develop intimate relationships with them: At times I learn far more about them than I’d like to know. I study their regional accents and their breathing peculiarities. I analyze the cadence of their speech. I learn their moral, ethical, and personal makeup. In short, I’ve got them figured out.
BNNT started as a Konrad Smoleński’s sound performance solo project in 2008. In the same year drummer Daniel Szwed, from Woody Alien and Mothra, joined and BNNT became a duo. In 2012 they released their debut album _ _ on Qulturap (CD) and Pink Punk (Vinyl). In addition to stage performances, BNNT also practise “sound bombing” which involves the duo crossing cities in a modified truck equipped with a sound system and power generator for unexpected short sound happenings. Smolenski makes sounds with a self-constructed instrument called “bomb” or “baritone missile”, which is basically a 4-string baritone stereo guitar in the shape of a missile.
“No Regrets For Our Youth is a nine track album of individual pieces, beautifully created with acoustic, electronic, modern and old sound. Each track varies from simple to intricately developed music. The record is one work, in that each piece connects to the others, yet they are all unique. The first track of predominantly electronic sounds defines a heavy yet childlike melody with strong rhythm in seven time.
