Meeting by Chance is a solo project of Marcin Cichy, co-creator of the Wrocław based, legendary duo Skalpel, one of the most important talents to come from Poland to international limelight. „Inside Out“ Marcin considers as his solo debut despite numerous previous albums in collaboration with other artists. It was the right time to sum up his own ideas and share them. Musically you will find an eclectic blend of jazz, chill out music with elements of ambient. Marcin, always a very careful observer, took inspiration for Meeting By Chance from a sequence photography by Duane Michals entitled „Chance Meeting“ comprising of six photos of two passing strangers. The sequence has no definite end but rather a pregnant pause. The anticipation combined with freeze-frame creates a space for music that gives the composer and listeners a chance to take a step back from hectic reality. The magical and dreamy soundscape is filled with creative, sublime sensitivity. Meeting by Chance means also a chance meeting with three female vocalists who are featured throught the entire album. Ayuko and Mayuko (both recording for Japanese label FLAU) and Magda added a unique and intimate feel of the project. Dominik Tarabinski’s photo on the cover made this spacious production fleshy in appearance.
