Biography

Valiska is the project of Calgary based experimental musician Krzysztof Sujata. Started in early 2010, it's a project that brings together ambient and drone with elements of modern composition. The music took shape and inspiration from the environment, Calgary being a place of both a large city feel, and of a natural beauty. Sujata’s works largely involve the use of loops and repetition, creating variety and change in often static elements, and weaving those elements into dynamic structures. Making use of synthesizers, guitars, piano and voice, it is highly melodic music hinting at stories that never quite materialize.

Sujata also hosts a radio show called ‘Processed’, airing bi-weekly on CJSW 90.9FM in Calgary, playing a variety of experimental electronic music genres.
