Music From Non-Existent Music is out now!

My new album, Music From Non-Existent Movies is available on my Bandcamp. It’s been recorded between November 2019 and January 2020 in Mustache Ministry studio. I played on a guitar older than me, Framus Figaro from 1956. An imperfect instrument, though carefully reconstructed. But this is what this music was supposed to be: story about fading and passing away about weakness and imperfection. About us. Fully improvised, although based on some pre-prepared ideas and melody outlines. It’s there.

It’s more than resonably prised: 21PLN (about 5Euros). It’s on Bandcamp. Enjoy!

Imagine Nation @ Podlasie Jazz Festival!

Here we go again! On October 19. we’ll play on Podlasie Jazz Festiwal. I decided to play Imagine Nation there – tunes I’ve written for last year’s Jazz Jamboree. Those themes were originally written for quintet, with voice and another guitar. This time I’ve made trio arrangements, hope you’ll like them. I’ll play with great musicians and friends, Wojtek Pulcyn on bass and Sebastian Frankiewicz on drums. Come and check it up!

Spontaneous Chamber Music – Patryk Zakrocki & me – just have played at Skład Butelek (WAW, PL). We’ve been lucky to have Basia Żach, great graphic artist, listening to our performance. That’s how she sees us.

Better check up her Instagram, it’s worth it!

Music From Non-Existent Movies

On 22/03 I’ll play my solo improv set at Skład Butelek (WAW, PL). I call this project “Music From Non-Existent Movies”, ’cause that’s what I’trying to do – tell the untold stories. Well, actually improvise soundtrack, that could possibly fit them. Something like that. Preparations for a solo recording are gaining momentum, I even think about recording this very concert. If you want to a part of it, just come on Friday, 22/03 to the Skład. I’m starting at 20:00. See you!

Solo

Just would like to invite you to my solo improvised set. I have not played this thing in Warsaw for quite a long time. Fortunately Skład Butelek (really cool place in WAW, a bit underground thing, think you’ll love it) invited me to play. So if you’re in Warsaw and in you like free improv music, please come and listen.
