Wojciech Bąkowski – Jazz Duo
Producer Lutto Lento and music journalist Filip Lech’s Dunno Recordings present a new album from Wojciech Bąkowski, Jazz Duo - a dreamy, meandering vision made in the artist’s home studio from old equipment and stock recordings coalescing through various strategies of song building. Says Bąkowski, “I listen to stock on my web browser while playing or listening to my recordings. Sometimes I mix only stocks with one another. This is how the song is made, to which I add my own thing. Later, I adjust the text, sometimes I also play out live instruments, such as bass.” Through these systems, a strangely harmonic synthesis of styles develops: new age jazz, Polish spoken word, trap, industrial, minimal, goth-balearic, orchestral…all floating past and into each other, like regular commuters at a bus stop. An endlessly fascinating experience, a vision of contemporary European life looking over its shoulder.
