Otherness

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

Any creative act works towards an otherness. You experience it a few times and you hope that it will come back, but you don’t know if it will. The playing is sometimes just a ritual and if you are lucky you get beyond it. You have to build into the ritual the possibilities of that happening.”

The staircase

Wednesday, February 9th, 2011

In 1963 Akio Suzuki was employed in a Tokyo architect’s office. While designing staircases, he realises that his drawings looked like the lines of a musical stave. “How would it be” he says ” if I could make a staircase that wouldn’t tire you out, that would be a pleasure to use? If I could make a perfect staircase that looked like a stave, then I could drop ping pong balls or tin cans down the stairs and they would make a beautiful sound.”

Innocence

Friday, January 21st, 2011

What’s a little bit sad is that you can only do it once, MAKE MUSIC INNOCENTLY in a style you have no clue about, not to care about details and just do what you like. I wish I could have appreciated that a bit more.

Anarchy

Wednesday, January 19th, 2011

I am an Anarchist. I don’t believe in any kind of politician and I am not so interested in economic things and materialism, so it’s my dream to continue this so that people get a feeling that brings them much more together.
I DON’T LIKE TO BE A LEADER – you must believe this – and if someone tries to be a leader, there is no Anarchy.

Polish Exploratory Music in London

November 2010, two-day festival of exploratory music and trans-idiomatic improvisation with some of the most interesting and vibrant musical agitator’s from the Polish underground at Cafe Oto in London.
‘The strangeness of existence: Polish Visions in sound from Witkacy to Scianka’ is a heightened audio reverberation of Biba Kopf’s journey from Warsaw to Krakow tracing roots back to the Solidarity movement of the 1980s, via indigenous variations of post-punk, No Wave, and avant garde sounds’.
