Spoki ("Ghosts") is the sound of an artist putting their private world to tape. Of exploring and pushing the limits of themselves and technology to realize the music in their head. The material here was recorded in Riga between 1988-2011. As Ingus Bausķenieks himself explains: "My own world differs a little from my friends' tastes. And -- as my father said -- the collective art is not art at all. The music of Ingus Bausķenieks is both deeply private and completely alien. Experimental yet happy to celebrate pop influences such as Engelbert Humperdinck, Simon & Garfunkel, or Fleetwood Mac. It is shaped by the artist's engagement with technology and his strive to put to record his "own world". As Ingus explains, it is the sound of him: "doing what I like to do."
