Hello, here is Peter Sliwinski, known as Echoplex and Post Scriptum.
I'm from Glasgow, United Kingdom.

I have been active on the electronic music scene for over two decades. At that time, under various pseudonyms, I made records for many labels like Ostgut Ton, Infrastructure, Sonic Groove, ARTS, Soma, Soleil, Synewave, Torema, M_nus)





Besides, being an experienced producer and performer, I'm also highly qualified trainer and coach. Helping a lot of people worldwide boost their confidence, gain clarity over their purpose and goals and develop their own unique style of producing.

You may see some of the people that have decided to send me testimonials for the help I have provided here:

This year I have started a life time project of producing and recording an online album. The purpose of this project was to share the real secrets of creating an Echoplex and Post Scriptum album from beginning to end. I really wanted to share my experiences and knowledge acquired over many years of producing, performing and releasing of music.

I have already created a youtube channel and recorded several episodes to the best of my ability while using the audio and video equipment available to me.

I have also organized a free techno master class workshop at College in Scotland. The response was positive for which I am very grateful.




 I have also created a website for sharing free content, intersting links and inspire people to make music: www.technomasterclass.com

I have designed and founded a special podcast to promote new artists.

The plan was to present all of the stages of creating an album. From designing sounds, composing tracks, recording, arranging, producing, mastering, to promoting, releasing and distributing.

During the creation of the next episodes, I wanted to gradually invest in this project, buy equipment to improve the quality of audio and video, lighting, so that you can fully experience it. The whole project was to be financed by me and made available to you - pro-publico bono.

Unfortunately, due to the situation related to the Corona virus, I had to verify the plans. All investment opportunities were blocked, the workshops I was supposed to lead and the performances were canceled. I started selling equipment to finish the project and survive, but I realize that this is not the way. This current situation can take a while, life goes forward and I really want to share this concept with you and bring this project to the end.

I strongly believe in the purpose of this project as well as the value that I can give you and the knowledge that I can share with you.

That's why I am asking you for your help. So far I have been recording video / audio material using one Canon camera and a mobile phone. Editing of it was very laborious, the batteries were discharged quickly, the computer clogged with a large number of different quality files, audio, video. Later, despite many hours of editing, the quality of the material left much to be desired.

After consultation, I made a decision to improve the quality and speed up the recording and editing process, In order to do so I need to raise funds for the purchase of much needed equipment. Equipment that would show you the whole process in the best way possible.

Who will benefit?

Young upcoming producers, who are looking for guidance, direction in creating their own music.

Exisiting producers, who are looking to develop their creativity and thus make more orginal tracks

Exisiting producers, who want to learn the process of recording and completing of an album.

Music Producers or DJs, who would like to find out the industry secrets of how to proceed with demos, how to approach labels, how to promote their music using DIY options or much more robust PR campaigns and DJ pools.

Anybody who is interested to learn a journey of an artist and the struggles connected with releasing an album.

How will the funds be spent?

I have already put all the funds received towards buying the first gopro camera. I have added more than £250 as the received funds were not substantial. I have lowered the needed funds accordingly, and would like to thank you in advance for any further support.

All equipment that will be purchased I hope with your support and as part of this project I present here:

1 GO PRO Hero 8 camera - this was the cheapest option that would allow me to show you many details, equipment close ups, 4k quality and faster material editing and processing)

2 Joby JB01507-BWW GorillaPod 3K Kit tripods - Black / Charcoal - to mount cameras even on the ceiling and show you the process from many interesting perspectives)

One Zoom H6 - 6-Track Mobile Recorder - for recording the signal and microphone together  - (to present you with best audio quality possible)

One Neewer 2 - Pack Dimmable Bi-color 660 LED Video Light with Barndoor and Light Stand 4-Pack Rechargeable 6600mAh Li-ion Battery and Charger Lighting Kit for Studio YouTube Video Shooting- (my studio despite being artificially illuminated by lamps that heat so much that they can overheat the Canon camera;) and still do not provide good lighting.

One MKE 600 Shotgun mic - for recording dialogues and instructions - MKE 600 Shotgun mic (so that somehow my instructions would be the best)

Additional batteries and stands for camcorders so that I can record material in a non disturbed way via the 4 camcorders.

I calculated the budget for the purchase of the equipment at £1000.

I would need the funds within a months time and I will purchase the needed equipment listed below as soon as the funds are available. 

If you would like to support this project and be in a sense a contributor, I invite you to help.

Your support will mean a world to me, since I will be able to complete this project of album in the making in the best possible quality thus help a lot of upcoming producers to understand the full path they may need to take to release an album.

As a special thank you for all the people that will decide to help to fund this equipment needed, I will create a free online group training and the topic that we will take a vote on.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for any of your donations.
