Enthralling double-bill featuring electronic musician Michał Jacaszek in collaboration with Polish ensemble, Kwartludium, plus a solo set from Icelandic cellist and composer Hildur Guðnadóttir.
Jacaszek’s collaboration with Kwartludium evokes the sounds of trees and feel of the forest; and in doing so they use a whole host of classical and modern techniques. In keeping with a lot of modern classical there is a direct link with the past masters, and here the link to Messiaen’s Catalogue d’Oiseaux can’t be a coincidence.
“… and the trees, like earth’s wistful sighs to the sky” – K. Janiszewska
Jacaszek and Kwartludium’s album “Catalogue des Abres” and Hildur Gudnadottir’s “Saman” were both released summer 2014
