"What synthesizers are producing this wonderousness?"

Piotr Kurek

A pioneering force in Poland’s experimental movement, Warsaw-based composer and multi-instrumentalist Piotr Kurek uses vintage instruments and recording equipment to weave colorful sonic tapestries that straddle the worlds of free jazz, musique concrète, psychedelia and drone.

Piotr Kurek is a Warsaw based experimental musician with an inspiringly novel approach to music. A firm characteristic of his work is diversity; from his usage of analog tape and croaking organ patterns to synthesisers and loosely improvised guitars. He’s built a reputation for himself as a qualified inventor of hypnotic worlds drenched in theatrical arrangement. His recent album on Dunno Recordings, AHH-OHH, released under Heroiny (one of his many monikers) was a warm success of house drum machine jams and vocal extensions. Kurek is also known for his work with pioneering breakcore group Slepcy, which at times explains his uses of jazz, krautrock, and classical art music as the foundations to  of his dramatic soundscapes.

This project is presented in the framework of SHAPE (Sound, Heterogeneous Art and Performance in Europe)
