It’ll be a cool week. On Thursday I will play with Patryk Zakrocki in DZiK. We’ve invited phenomenal Anna Gadt to play together – in my opinion, she is one of the best and most creative vocalists in Europe. If someone has not heard her latest album yet, then please do not hesitate to reach the Misterium Lunae. On Thursday we improvise open and unexpected forms, I can not wait.
And on Sunday my trio will play in Cud Nad Wisłą. It’s a beautiful place, I’m so glad we can perform there! We’ll play some new things, some songs from previous albums. Maciek Szczyciński will play the bass, and Szymon Linette for the first time in this line-up on drums. Just come and listen!

This morning I’ve received a box full of new CDs, straight from the press. Marcin Olak, Patryk Zakrocki and Agustí Fernández, Spontaneous Chamber Music, vol.2 is out now!. The album, published by the Listen! Foundation, will be available in stores any moment now, and will certainly be available at our concerts.
We will play 14.04 in SPATiF (WAW, PL), then 20.04 in the Iluzjon Cinema (WAW, PL), at the silent movie festival. Come and listen!
On March 17th, I’ll give workshops in improvisation in one of my favorite music schools, Musicollective in Gdańsk (PL). I’ll talk about the psychological aspects of improvisation and the possibilities of developing a creative attitude. There will also be some individual lessons, we will most likely focus on jazz … or maybe not? This is an improvisation, anything can happen. If you happen to be in Gdańsk on March 17th, check this up!
Last October we’ve recorded an improvised session. Patryk Zakrocki, Agustí Fernández and me. And it looks like our new album – Spontaneous Chamber Music, vol. 2 – will be out this spring. I so excited about this new release, and I hope you’ll like the music. Stay tuned!
…This February Spontaneous Chamber Music will play in SPATiF (cool new place in Warsaw, PL). Me and Patryk Zakrocki will improvise live music for a 1922 silent movie – “Nosferatu, a symphony of horror”…
EDIT: No we won’t play, this gig is canceled, I’m sorry. We try to make happen some other day, maybe in another place. It’s just a misunderstanding, but an annoying one. :/
