PSS-270

A TOY-KEYBOARD MICROMUSIC ARTIST

The micromusic project named PSS-270 has been established in 2005 to play lo-fi / casio-core stuff.

The music initially was supposed to be played only on YAMAHA PSS-270 keyboard - a small toy for children.

Finally I decided to use as many toy-keyboards as possible. For now I have toys such as:

YAMAHA PSS-270 (of course)
CASIO SK-5
YAMAHA PSS-680
CASIO SK-1
YAMAHA PSS-50
CASIO MA-120
CASIO SA-39
CASIO MT-205
CASIO SA-5
and one of only 2 toy-versions of Casio CZ series: Casio CZ-230S.

I don't use any sequencers. I play everything "from hand" and mix it on COOL EDIT Pro. I treasure the original totally plastic and synthetic sound of the toys, so I almost don't add any postproduction effects; rarely I add some reverb/delay but you can state it's their original sound. But I permit, I will use some sound-modifications in future, when I get bored with still the same instruments. :)

My music is inspired by steam-punk, small old mechanical devices, horror-cabaret/horror-circus atmoshpere, Doctor Who mood, and classic-electronica musicians, like Jean-Michel Jarre, Marek Bilinski, Vangelis, Andrzej Szymalski, Kraftwerk, Roman Wiercinski (Cyborg)...
