Make music not war

Album Across Africa and Asia with Kolberg portrays the unusual musical fusions. It features the material recorded in Egypt, Lebanon, Tunisia, Pakistan, Algeria, Senegal, Korea and Poland between 2011 and 2014. It is the first project designed to create musical fusions of traditional culture of Poland (mainly Mazovia) and selected African and Asian countries. It combines the results of innovative work on promoting and presenting Polish folk music in Africa and Asia with artistic education. During the workshops organized in each of the mentioned places, I taught selected folk repertoire to the local communities and next transformed it into African-Polish and Asian-Polish fusions. Some of the album’s tracks appear as studio versions, others were recorded live.

Dwugłowy Smok Pomianowska & Kinior

Materiał płyty, to emocjonalne improwizacje Marii Pomianowskiej, wykonywane wokół tradycyjnych melodii polskich i orientalnych, na starych instrumentach smyczkowych (suka biłgorajska, fidel płocka), podparte ambientowymi szerokimi podkładami Włodzimiera "Kiniora" Kiniorskiego. Elektronika nie stanowi tu jedynie biernego tła, ale nadaje charakter i barwę prostym melodiom, będąc ich swoistym uzupełnieniem czy pokazując je w nieznanym do tej pory świetle. Znalazła się tu znana już wszystkim "Matula", tradycyjna "Lipeńka", a album zamyka skoczna orientalna melodia, w której zachwyca archaiczny śpiew. Część kompozycji, brzmieniowo dopełnia miękki saksofon Kiniora, który wcielił się tu w rolę muzycznego "dopowiadacza", pomocnika i współtowarzysza Pomianowskiej. Album "Smok Dwugłowy"  to propozycja cechująca się przede wszystkim świeżością. Artyści łączą tu elementy new wave'u, ambientu, muzyki etnicznej i jazzu, dodając w temacie etno-jazzu coś nowego - własne osobowości i fascynacje, wyraźnie w tym materiale zaznaczone.

 

Lutoslavs

Lutoslavs  Maria Pomianowska’s Orchestra Lutoslavs


The project on CD present the music of the great composers from the perspective of the modern man's expectations. Although his works are the highest expressions of artistic creation, they have not yet reached the vast audience, which does not listen to classical music often. My project aims to change this situation. Due to its innovatory content, it is addressed to the broad spectrum of recipients, who listen not only to classical music, but also to other genres, such as jazz, pop or world music. The program presents Lutosławski's music in a manner never used before. The pieces on the CD will contain a compilation the three main subjects directly connected to the  composer's work: tradition (folk sources in his compositions; chosen works of Lutosławski along with Polish folk melodies performed on folk intruments), composition (original pieces of the composer arranged for  non-classical instruments, both European and non-European) and inspiration (creation of copyright pieces based on chosen works of W. Lutosławski) The music of the composers stimulates the imagination of the artist and motivates him to improvisation. This element of own composition derived from the inspiration by Lutosławski's music is the joining element of the whole project. The three elements of creation described above, which are the base for creating a new sonically-expressive quality in the presentation of W. Lutosławski's music, appear with differing intensity throughout the project. In result a coherent, homogenous effect with a unique character was created.
