On October 24, the inauguration of the new project of the Tricity Electroacoustic Scene – Open Session – took place in the Artists' Colony in Gdańsk. These are cyclical musical meetings, taking the form of improvised sessions for invited artists, and at the same time open to the public. These events are aimed at integrating the local community of artists and popularizing the activities of the Tricity Electroacoustic Scene. The first one was attended by: Dariusz Mazurowski, Krzysztof Topolski (Arszyn), Antonina Car, Maciej Polak, Jacaszek and Petar Petkov. The performance was recorded for release on CD.



On October 5, another concert from the "New Music in the Old Town Hall" series took place at the Old Town Hall. It had a special character because it was filled with improvised electroacoustic music performed by the following lineup:

  • Blanka Dembosz – Tondera – soprano
  • Krzysztof Gawlas – guitar, modular synthesizer, computer
  • Max Kohyt – electric double bass, electronics
  • Michał Markiewicz – viola, electronics
  • Dariusz Mazurowski – analog and digital synthesizers, turntable, effects, computer
  • Paweł Nowicki – percussion
  • Piotr Nowicki – piano

On Friday, September 29th, in the Electroacoustic Music show, hosted by Marek Kwiatkowski on the radio station El-Stacja, the premiere presentation of my new project, Metropolis Balticum (Urbana Landscape) will take place. This composition serves as a soundscape of Gdańsk, my hometown. It 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. As a result of these techniques, some parts resemble a journey through the city, with smooth transitions between layers and locations, while others (especially Industry and Interiors) are more distinctly musical impressions blurring the lines between soundscape and concrete music. The sounds of the city, bustling streets, industrial noises, the sea’s roar, and the hubbub of human activity all become phrases contributing to this uniquely musical whole. Each section is dedicated to specific themes such as arrivals and departures to the city, the importance of water and air, industry, interiors, urban parks and nature, streets, and, finally, the people themselves. This project was undertaken as part of the Cultural Grant of the City of Gdańsk, awarded in 2023.
The broadcast will begin at 10:00 PM and can be listened to through the El-Stacja website: https://el-stacja.pl/, or in any radio application by entering the station’s name. I will be live with the listeners on IRC, and anyone who wishes to join can do so at: http://webchat.el-stacja.pl:9090/?channels=EL-Stacja

During this edition of the Vox Electronica festival in Lviv, the first since the outbreak of the war, on August 1, my two compositions, Far Beyond the Heliopause and VIVA L’autunno (with award-winning videos by Roman Przylipiak and Remigiusz Wojaczek), were presented during the concert at the Lviv Radio House. The concert took place under the theme ‘Нові/забуті рельєфи’ (New/Forgotten Reliefs). For obvious reasons, I couldn’t be there in person, but I’m immensely grateful to my Ukrainian friends for including my compositions in the program.
