Opening this evening’s program is a brief, pre-prepared transmission of synthetic beauty from Giant Claw. Following is a solo show from Angel Bat Dawid, a US jazz clarinetist, singer and composer who has emerged as one of the most distinctive voices in contemporary music. An Unsound-commissioned project sees Polish percussionists Miłosz Pękala and Hubert Zemler, pianist Grzegorz Tarwid and visual artist Wiktor Podgórski (VTR) perform reinterpretations of theatre and film scores by Penderecki, along with two pieces by electronic musician Jlin. The UK’s Shackleton has one foot in the club and experimental scenes, while Poland’s Wacław Zimpel is one of Poland’s most adventurous multi-instrumentalists, composers and producers. In another commissioned work, they present the premiere of their new collaboration, The Spirit Still Remains, involving alto clarinet, electronics and voice, with Barbara Kinga Majewska and Aleksandra Klimczak. Broadly understood as ritual and devotional music, the work will explore transcendence, love and death.
