The Gdańsk Miasto Literatury website, where you can find many interesting texts, has just published a long interview with me, written by Filip Szałasek. Our conversation was mainly about the CD album Metropolis Balticum, with the soundscape of Gdansk, listening to the sounds of the city, field recording, but also more broadly, about electroacoustic music, its creation and perception. I invite you to read it, I hope you will find this material interesting. Unfortunately, the text is only in Polish, but I think you can use an online translator.

With a slight delay, but finally the new album has already been released and is available as a CD and also in digital form. Metropolis Balticum was released by the Antenna Non Grata label and it's a soundscape of the city of Gdańsk for multichannel projection. Composition, field recordings, mixing, production and mastering – Dariusz Mazurowski, De eM Studio, June - September 2023. All sounds were recorded in the urban spaces of Gdańsk. Realized as part of the Cultural Grant of the City of Gdańsk, awarded in 2023.

Later this year, my new CD with the large scale eight part piece Metropolis Balticum will be released by Polish label Antenna Non Grata. This composition is a soundscape of Gdańsk, my hometown and was entirely created from field recordings that I made within the urban space, visiting various locations and searching for intriguing events with musical qualities. Each of the eight parts of the composition consists of multiple phrases layered on top of each other, creating a sonic tapestry. More information on this CD will be posted soon. This project was undertaken as part of the Cultural Grant of the City of Gdańsk, awarded in 2023.
