Piotr Kurek - Smartwoods

Regular price

Piotr Kurek, a composer and producer hailing from Warsaw, presents 'Smartwoods,' a delightfully irresistible album commissioned by the Unsound festival's Kraków-based label. While firmly rooted in avant-garde territory, this musical creation boasts an inviting accessibility, thanks to its abundance of beautiful melodic phrases. These fleeting melodies, although ephemeral on their own, seamlessly come together to form a larger, cohesive vision.

Drawing inspiration from early music traditions, Kurek assembles a diverse sonic palette, featuring instruments like the harp, saxophone, clarinet, guitar, and double bass. He applies modern computer music techniques with a delicate touch, skillfully weaving together these various sounds. The outcome is a musical journey teeming with innovative ideas and intricate layers, yet it radiates a profound sense of tranquility. 'Smartwoods' stands as a testament to Kurek's ability to bridge the realms of complexity and serenity within the avant-garde genre.
