Over the last two decades, the renessaince of polish experimental and avantgarde music, its own history related mostly to 60. and 70. was forgotten. Most of the recent trends in contemporary music in Poland started from a scratch, in a way out of nowhere, as if the only reference points were history books of Western Music which neglected its Central-European heritage, including Poland. The presentation aims at covering this blind spot as well facing the question what is experimental music today, after more than 50 years after its establishing. The focus of the lecture will be the most important phenomena in experimental music of the region with special emphasis on visual / audio art and Polish Radio Experimental Studio, one of its most important institutions.

He runs a sublabel of conceptual pop called Populista dedicated to mis- and over-interpretation of music, he organizes irregular concert series collaborating with National Art Gallery Zachęta, CCA, Polish National Museum all in Warsaw, Galerie West in The Hague, Satelita in Berlin.


>> Concert is based on solo structured improvisation instrumentalized exclusively to modular synthesizer. It is purely live creation always connected to acoustic specification of the space as well as speakers. Performance of Piotrowicz brings wide range of sonic events, rich in details multilayered form has also distinct drama. Music is changing and folding by every gesture of musician, who treats electronic as regular instrument. His solo concert has been often described as mixture of control, complexity and almost rock energy but realized with reduced abstract electronic material.

Robert Piotrowicz - sound artist, composer, improviser.
He has authored radio dramas, sound installations, and music for theatre productions, and collaborates regularly with other artists on audio-visual performances. As an instrumentalist, Piotrowicz works mainly with his own live performance setup, developed around the electric guitar and analogue modular synthesiser. His music has as much in common with contemporary electro-acoustic compositions as it does with sound art.
