GHEDALIA TAZARTES, PAWEL ROMANCZUK, ANDRZEJ ZALESKI
LP/CD/DL Monotype Records monoLP018
Release date: November 11
The newest record produced by the group of three – Ghedalia Tazartes, Paweł Romańczuk, and Andrzej Załęski – is the result of only a few meet ups and a shared passion for music that shapes their perspective. The long play was recorded at the Rogalów Analogowy studio in the eastern part of Poland. It’s worth noting that the space and surrounding countryside did not influence the sound itself as the record drifts away from the traditions of chamber music. The musicians, together as well as separately, avoid any mainstream influences. Thus, the acoustic record is peaceful, spiritual and presents a wide variety of notions and emotions. The diversified vocal articulation and tone of Tazartes intertwines well with Zaleski’s percussive play and Romańczuk’s multi-instrumental skills. The rhythmic pulsation is constantly taking new directions, eventually turning into noise at some point. The voice, somehow dramatic, traps the listeners and sends them on a journey through non-existent quasi-stories. Here we are, facing an elusive romantic magician personified by a carp-headed cat.
