The second night in Manggha brought two more surprises - Denmark’s Damien Dubrovnik and Polish duo Syny. You can now see the full lineup and read more about artists here. More surprises to come, so stay tuned.
Today's Morning Glory concert in ICE was performed by renowned British pianist John Tilbury and Polish electroacoustic musician Robert Piotrowicz, in a tribute to Polish minimalist composer Tomasz Sikorski. We would like to thank ICE and KBF for providing this venue for us to use at short notice. Tomorrow's Morning Glory show will take place in the Manggha Museum, with the time changed to 11:30 am.
Today’s discussion program includes a talk about shock and surprise in performance, and artist talks with Elysia Crampton, Laraaji and John Tilbury.
In the evening, New York composer, improviser and saxophone player Matana Roberts performs in the beautiful Tempel Synagogue, presenting the third chapter of her ongoing “Coin Coin” project, which explores black history, femininity and American identity. The opening show is a surprise. There should be some tickets at the door.
Later in the evening we move to Manggha, with Rimbaud, a Polish band that unites three local legends: ‘80s punk vocalist Tomasz Budzyński, sax player Mikołaj Trzaska, and electronic musician Michał Jacaszek. Together they interpret the French poet Rimbaud’s texts in a truly unique way. The two other acts are a surprise. Tickets will be at the door.
We end the night with a free mid-week party in Szpitalna 1 club, focussing on a single DJ to pave the way for the club madness to follow over the Unsound long weekend. In the wake of his wonderful 2015 EP “Carmine”, Detroit’s FIT Siegel will play an expansive set. Opening is locally based Polish-Australian DJ NHJ.
NTS Broadcasts continue today at 5pm with a second session held in Betel Club on Plac Szczepański 3, near the festival. The artists appearing are all surprises, but you're all welcome to come. The broadcasts are free and open to public.
