Well, I didn’s see it comin’. Just one phone call in the morning – and here it is. Marcin Olak Trio, performing live again, the same day. With Maciek Szczyciński on bass and Krzysztof Szmańda on drums. Hope you enjoy.
I’d like to thank Pałac w Radziejowicach for the invitation and Music Machines for audio and video.
Today, at 21:00 I’ll play for you an improvised set with Music From Non-Existent movies. It will be a unique concert – Anna Gadt joins me this time, I’s soooo lucky! She’s a brilliant artist, improviser, singer, composer… and a great person – if you don’t know her albums, be sure to listen. More information about Anna can be found here.
One more thing – we decided to base our improvisations on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This is the milestone document which says that we are all equal. That we have the same rights. That no one can be illegally deprived of these rights, freedom, or dignity … Now, when nationalism begins to revive again, when people are excluded on the basis of their beliefs, sexual orientation, when we are so divided – now we want to recall this text: “all people are born equal… ”. This declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations in 1948. After the war. So that there would be no more wars …
Link to the concert will appear here and on my Facebook 15 mins before the concert. You can listen and watch it for free. Enjoy!

In May, during the Night Of The Museums (a very special night, when all museums in Poland are opened all night), Spontaneous Chamber Music – Patryk Zakrocki and me – played in the Upper Silesian Jews House of Remembrance in Gliwice. This is a wonderful, magical place, located in old Jewish funeral home. And that was when this short film was made. We talk about our impressions, about memory, about music. And we play with birds.
