about

Recorded between 2010 and 2012 at various different locations in London, Circuit's debut album "Codes" features Stuart Hall, playing three solos on three different instruments (tracks 3, 4 and 7; he's collaborated with Django Bates, Hermeto Pascoal, or Loose Tubes, among the others).

In 2012 the band has received "Emerging Excellence" Award from the biggest UK music fund, Musicians Benevolent Fund, especially for the production of this album.

‘...aggressive, multicoloured, sophisticated, personal landscape of chaos...’
T. Kraska

‘The band sounds like nothing else before them, even if some compare the group to the likes of Frank Zappa, Pink Floyd, Loose Tubes or classical composer Gyorgy Ligeti – it is safe to say that the style of Circuit is eclectic and can only be described as a mixture of many different styles (...)’
-‘Goniec Polski (The Polish Times)’, issue 372,

Oh, if only one little spring would snap, just one little screw would fall out, something would break; Just for a moment, just for one moment, a blissful silence, tranquillity, a split second; I dream about this one single crooked wheel, little spring, screw, a stray stone in cogs, which would stop all this even for a moment, a split second, etc…..To witness this temporary catastrophe, the bigger and more painful, the mightier and more complex the mechanism is...

There are luminous red and purple borders on the edges of furniture and door,
sometimes streaks of colours pass thtough them:
red, violet, blue and lemon yellow. They seem to exist in another plane than the visible forms – a bit closer and they come from 'a different visible world'.

We usually see the reality as if from the side or from above, like a bird's eye view
and the every day's activities like walking, writing or speaking are performed absolutely automatically, as if it was somebody else doing them and as if we were only watching it.

A section of the world. But one situated vertically.
I can see layers of different colours and exceptionally lush, as if tropical, vegetation.

The plausibility and exactness of seeing, hearing and touching is incomparably greater than in reality or in dreams to such an extent that our reality seems to be less real than this other one.

The nose lifted the lips spread and the sleeping face turned into a dreadful carnival mask, a living one, which was making terrible faces. A jug standing in the other corner of the room suddenly turned to life. White tentacles shot out of it as if out of a cuttlefish. They were moving towards me, twisting in the air. Two black cracks in white enamel turned into ominous and hypnotising eyes. They were staring at me with this strange persistence.

Visions and feelings can only be understood while they are happening. They are as difficult to reconstruct as some dreams in which you don't know what is going on and which cannot be compared to anything else. And yet on a kind of emotional plane you do realise exactly what they were about. Their source and nature are a mystery.

I somehow know that if I wanted to, I would be able to look back into ancient times and remember everything that ever happened to any of my ancestors


A giant temple made of red stone. The columns are about two thousand metres high against the background of grey sky. At the bottom there is a black speck on the step of the red stairs – this is the whole humankind.

I know what every person in the world is thinking about or doing in this very moment. I can also see his or her past or future if I only want to. I feel that I possess this intuitive knowledge, that I simply know things no matter how and why.

I can see my relative P. talking to his wife at the table with his back turned to the clock, the ticking of which I can hear so well that I feel as if I was there right now.

I can see what others don't notice at all: people on the street, faces around, colourful rays around people.

eyes glowering from everywhere, their looks so insanely intensified that eyes of no earthly creatures could have such a powerful expression even in a wildest fit of passion.

I feel presence of other people in an indescribable way. They are probably the dead entering my body.

Electrical appliances such as TV or radio switch on by themselves if I want them to.

I can feel that at any time I can remember everything that has ever happened to me and I can perceive everything that is happening everywhere in the universe.

I am in Zakopane on the porch of villa 'Zośka'. The rain is pouring down. I can see the leaves quivering from the falling drops and the mud on the street as if I was there.



If a person uses on average only 5 to 6% of the abilities of one's brain and if the ratio for geniuses is still only 10 to 12%, then can anyone at all know the consequences of using at least a half of the potential of our heads? If it was proved, that human mind registers through senses everything that is going on around, every single moment of our life, even while we are asleep or anaesthetised, then what would happen if we learned to use this ability awarely? The brain and the nervous system protect us from being overwhelmed and confused by this mass of largely useless and irrelevant knowledge by shutting out most of what we see and hear at any moment and leaving only the very small and special selection which is likely to be practically useful. So what would our life be like if we learned how to completely use such a detailed and precise memory?...And what of the frequency of the brainwaves which some are able to increase or decrease. This allows changing their ability of new knowledge acquisition and, hence, the perception of reality. In this way they gain wider awareness. They see, feel and know more than other people. Is it possible that one day using 100% of our brain ability and hence telepathy, psycho kinesis, contacting the dead or gaining access to the collective memory of all our ancestors while reaching few thousand years back, that all those things will be a part of our everyday life? Will people treat them as something obvious as they themselves perhaps will already be living in different dimensions, on a different level of consciousness where, thinking that way, also time and space will become one?

Yes, I know, that it’s so unbelievable, improbable and strange on its own, just in the fact of being something perfectly and absolutely shapeless in our heads, because of the lack of ability to make, in any circumstances we could only imagine, empirical observation - what causes, that it is impossible to comprehend by any one in our times, even the greatest geniuses, who’s brains also turn out to be too limited in view of all this.

Yeah, that’s it, exactly………but……….what is further? Beyond…….all………this? It’s expanding all the time, I know, yeah, but…….where…….exactly? In what? Inside of what?? I don’t understand, I don’t know...And what do you say about that. Because I just can’t get it, grasp it, I don’t know what and how to think about it at all, because it can be something, that nobody would understand anyway, even if someone draws it for them, or talks about it……


Explosion, yeah, sure, it’s obvious, simple, but…….hmmmm……how to say it…..kind of….formulate it…….eeeeeeemm….yeah but…..what had preceded it? before?.....So, what?? And again: where, and in what beforehand? And from whom or where or what did the infinite yet infinitesimally small emerge?
Tell me, how to take such a thing, from where? And where to put it, for heavens sake! Well? …..Hm! This is it exactly, this is my point precisely…..


Ok, anyway we know much already, therefore it’s time to start thinking about what......further?........How will it end and when, according to what time and in what place, if it will be possible to speak within these categories (as if it was possible now..)? But perhaps all this is just a microscopic (being in the background of other things assuming that such things are), illusion of some order, which can anyway amount to little, compared to something, some reality, being in which itself doesn’t change anything anyway?? And even if it changes, then what it is, in what way and what for, to what, who?? And how small or huge is its role in something bigger, if something bigger really exists, it just has to!

[And will anyone ever find out anything about it? – would they be able to understand it]
Track Name: Tesla
Initial primary bang energy = 0.5 x C x (primary spark voltage2)
Energy transferred to the second coil = 0.5 x (self-capacitance of the secondary coil to the ground + self-capacitance of the secondary coil) x (output voltage2)

Pain caused by a sound of combing hair can just drive me insane at times…

Primary circuit x capacitor = secondary circuit x (Cs + Ctop)

I don’t want to be dependent on anyone: any institution, organisation or corporation. I don’t want to be forced to compromise and I wouldn’t be able to go against my beliefs, my opinions, and my inventions

Frequency of both circuits = 1/(2 x pi x sqrt Lp x Cp)

Fluent German, Italian, English, French, Czech, Latin, Hungarian, Croatian….

Lp x Cp = Ls x Cs
Gain = sqrt Lp x Ls

I can see flames all around me, they are getting bigger and bigger, there’s nothing apart from these, God!

Assuming: Es = X% x Ep
Vout = Vp x sqrt X% x Cp/Cs = Ctop

Waiter! Can I have 18 napkins – no more, no less – to clean my cutlery, plate and glass, please!

Vout = Vp x sqrtX% x Ls/Lp

Don’t touch me!

I’m sending electric storms to all sides of the world
Let all power plants burn from a billion volts
The Earth shakes from thunderbolts
Let the free kilowatts from now on always power every house


Resonant transformer circuits, rotating magnetic field, induction motor

A new project with all of its details comes to my mind during sleep, that’s why as soon as I am awake, I write everything down and “switch” it on in my imagination, checking if everything works properly

Polyphase alternating current generator, water, steam and gas turbine

Why do they always use so much perfume?! I can’t stand it any more!

Neon, x-ray tubes, Earth’s ionosphere

“The glow retreats, done in the day of toil
It yonder hastes, new fields of life exploring;
Ah, that no wing can lift me from the soil,
Upon its track to follow, follow soaring!”

Radio before Marconi, systems for wireless communication and long – distance wireless transfer of electricity

Switch off the light! I can’t see anything!!

Electric car with a free energy receiver as a power source (and no battery)

Edison, Marconi, USA Government, CIA – they all steal my ideas!

Robotics, remote control, partcle beam weapon

Track Name: Thank You From The Mountain
One day
Having Denmark from chicken with
My girl
And after-little-rivers
We were
Watching No-Room Moral Cinema, when I said:
“I have to animal to you,
And I won’t be turning the guitar, but
I just simply
Feel a train to you, feel a train to you, feel a train to you…..”
Suddenly she oaked
But didn’t tell me:
“Well, I think you have been bent”
And instead she’ll get me sweater in small cheese, small cheese, small cheese, small cheese….

I said:
Thank you, from the mountain
Thank you, from the mountain

My brand new idea didn’t suffer corpse
So I said to her lilac-small-garden, straight from bridge:
“Will you go out behind me?”
And gave her 2 pairs of paradise feet
But would like to watch some more of
No-Room-Moral Cinema
Which I have a lot at home
Therefore we byhanded
Afterstepped agreemently with right,
Right with afterstepped agreemently
With agreemently right afterstepped….

I said:
Thank you, from the mountain
Thank you, from the mountain
Thank you, from the mountain
From the you mountain thank
You the thank from mountain
Mountain from you thank the
