More music involving the seemingly always-at-work Wojciech Kucharczyk (does the man ever sleep?), this time in a quartet alongside B a ej Król, Jerzy Mazzoll and Radek Dziubek. The project's title Dwutysi czny translates as 'two thousand' - referring, according to a brief recent interview with Easterndaze, to the year when Król first came across the music of the other three players, a discovery that eventually led him to write to them to ask if they'd donate him some of their recorded sounds to use as source material. This debut album, whose title translates as 'Silkworm', is the result of a process that found him editing, chopping and re-shaping that assembled sample library (in the same interview he states that the original material was often completely transformed: 'in the end, WK's instrument sounds like a prepared clarinet what JM had played on a clarinet becomes percussive (...). It's a stylistically varied affair, opening with two tracks of pretty, pastoral electronica before tripping into starker, jazzier territory. The usual roles of instruments are often enhanced or subverted - on opening track what sounds like a woodwind instrument blossoms into life above shimmering drones, foregrounded and EQ'd so it acquires the presence of an additional electronic element, while on track 4 the clarinet is treated to feel archaic, as if recovered from dusty old tapes found locked away in a filing cabinet somewhere. The latter track is especially lovely, a three-minute long sketch shrouded in a protective patina of decay and interference, and segues into track 5, whose mood is similarly thoughtful and questioning, an extended interlude for quiet contemplation?'. Rory Gibb.
