A long-awaited return and a performance of one of the most prominent figures of the Polish electronic scene. Tomasz Makowiecki and Jacek Sienkiewicz join the line-up of the Wrocław festival.
Tomasz Makowiecki, who recently announced his return to recording and concert activity is coming to Wrocław with old and well-known songs, as well as new ones, promoting the artist’s upcoming release. Makowiecki is active on the Polish music scene since 2001. To date, the artist released 5 studio albums and participated in several dozen events and music projects. He has been repeatedly nominated for the Polish phonographic industry awards, including Fryderyk and Paszport Polityki Award. In February this year, Moizm by Tomasz Makowiecki hit the streaming services. The fourth, most uncompromising and personal album to date by the artist from the Tri-City, already deemed legendary by his fans, was originally released in 2013. This long-unavailable release now features a new single Ciało (cover of a song by Republika), which the artist performed during concerts promoting Moizm.
The aficionados of uncompromising electronic sounds will be glad to see the concert of Jacek Sienkiewicz, who is undoubtedly one of the pioneers of the last two decades of the Polish electronic music scene. Starting with early acid and rave sounds, recently he started turning towards advanced sound experiments. The artist released several albums and more than 50 singles on vinyl, ranging between standard party techno productions and abstract ambient impressions. The artist has always been following his own path by developing his unique, distinctive sound that transcends the dominant trends on the market. Since 1999 he has been running his own label — Recognition – where he discovers and promotes unique Polish artists. In recent years, Jacek has also been developing a variety of his interdisciplinary projects, such as improvised concerts, installations and innovative video works, as well as experimental compositions referring to contemporary music, including reinterpretations of works by composers associated with the famous Polish Radio Experimental Studio.
Both artists will perform on Saturday (18 July). With three days of music and an extensive line-up, the organisers – the Culture Zone Wrocław – decided to set up two separate stages, one of which will be built in Społeczny Square, and the other will pop up in Impart’s backyard. In total, this year’s WROsound will bring together 16 Polish and international artists, most of whom will present new, unreleased material.
To date, the current line-up features:
Meek, Oh Why?
Final concert: WOODKID
