Uceroz is a new music brand by Ivan Palacký, a musician playing an amplified knitting machine called Dopleta 160 (180). The title "Uceroz" is an abbreviation created from two Czech words : „učesán a rozcuchán“. It consists of two editions, where „učesán“ represents a smoother kind of musical expressiveness however „rozcuchán“ tends to be more experimental.
The first set of 5 CDs is published in „rozcuchán“ edition. The design of the cover also reflects this motif. Like when you are listening to this piece of music for the first time being still untouched by the unique experience of Ivan Palacky´s peculiar performance, also the album cover makes you feel like that. After opening (tearing off the seal), the outer minimalistic graphic of the snow-white package is irretrievably disturbed by a stain, which turns to the colour of the inner content.

Technical description

The graphic form of the edition is always constant, just the colours vary. Depending on the technique of opening, (some extreme technics of opening have already been noticed, like using a drill in order to create a peculiar mark.) some patterns arise, which give each piece a certain uniqueness. The inner mechanism is an authentic construction by Hubero Kororo.
