about

This is the soundtrack to the novel POLAND, by M.T. Hasenfang.
Gathering inspiration from these tunes, this haunting tale has been spun.

~ABOUT THE NOVEL~

POLAND is a twisted combination of old Eastern European dreadpunk, clashing with the mix of 1930's noir and its rampant flood of electrical machinery, hastily diluting the superstitions and ghostly hauntings of fabled past.

Follow Jerzy Kras, as he enters into his ancestral homeland, to partake in his great grandfather's Will reading. There, he uncovers that the secluded village of Niebieski Las, located deep within the Tatra Mountains, is shrouded in its own cloak macabre mysteries. Did his great grandfather really pass away due to old age? Or is there something more sinister happening among the old mossy walls and dark wooded pathways?

Please keep on eye out for the POLAND novel Kickstarter campaign, coming in 2018. Until then, enjoy this free soundtrack album, which help inspire the book.

~ABOUT THE ALBUM~

WARNING: There are a few issue to bring up about this soundtrack:

1.) Though the novel takes place in the years 1936 and 1937, the tracks on this album are not period appropriate. In fact, many of the songs will be from various decades and from a mix of cultures. Oddly enough, though I could be wrong, I do not think there is one Polish artist on here. Also, though very close in synch with the tale, the album will not be in perfect alignment with the novel's chapters; the tracks are slightly mixed up in places, to give a better sound to the artists each is placed next to.

2.) All tracks are in their original form. There has been no remastering, remixing or even any audio level adjustment to match the other tracks therein. You will even hear some of the tracks cut off at the end, with their music. This is due to the artist (site they are on) themselves, and not my doing. I kept it as such, because I feel it gives more of an authentic and ethereal feel to the album as a whole. It seems to add depth to the feel of the story. The best way to listen to this album is through headphones, where you can get more into the album, than say, driving down a road while trying to partake in some of the more quieter tracks.

3.) All tracks were converted from MP3. I know, it is something I do not like to do. However, these tracks were downloaded from public domain and/or free-for-commercial-use sites, which only allowed MP3 downloads. It is possible, that I could have found better quality versions of these tracks to upload to this album. But, we must keep in mind, that the licensing might be different for those quality upgrades, per each artist. In other words, the MP3 tracks were the ones with the Attribution License for anyone to use, so those were the ones I have used for this album. It is free...so hopefully no one has any issue with the slightly downgraded quality.

4.) As part of the Attribution License for anyone using these tracks, it is stated that one must give links to the artist's license. However, bandcamp does not allow external links onto their artist's direct link pages. So, in light of this, I must apologize to the artists, as part of me making this album was to promote those very artists who I found inspiration with. If, at any time, I find a page at bandcamp with them on it, I will connect their site to this page, so they can get more recognition. Until then, anyone can do a search for these artists, at one of these site, to gather the Attribution License(s):

freemusicarchive-dot-org
freepd-dot-com
or
musopen-dot-org

...I hope this helps...

5.) This album is FREE. It is also just under 80 minutes in length, so it will all fit onto one CD recording.
