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.
Just a moment ago we’ve left the studio. Anna Gadt – voice, Annemie Osborne – cello, Patryk Zakrocki – viola. And me on guitars. We’ve played some improvised chamber music. Just wanted to capture the moment of our meeting, I hope we’ll be able to share it with you soon!
Maciej Lewenstein, an indefatigable researcher of the Polish jazz and avant-garde scene (and by the way an outstanding physicist – but that’s a completely different story) reviewed our album, recorded with Patryk Zakrocki and Agusti Fernandez. Spontaneous Chamber Music vol. 2 gained recognition in the eyes – or rather in the ears – of the reviewer. The entire text – yes, it’s in English – is posted below, and more reviews by Maciej can be found on his Facebook. It’s worth taking a look there, because it is a great guide to the contemporary jazz and avant garde music scene!
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.
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!
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. :/
