New Sounds from Poland: Małe Instrumenty

Concert

November 14, 2014

Founded by Pawel Romanczuk in 2006, Małe Instrumenty (Small Instruments) are a band exploring new sounds using a wide array of small instruments. The instruments used in their sonic experiments feature an ever expanding array of professional instruments, sound toys made for children or naive in nature, strange musical inventions as well as a whole array of small items that aren't really instruments but do make a sound.

In addition, Małe Instrumenty will give a music workshop called Small Instruments on Saturday 15th November.

Held on a Long Friday at Pera Cafe, the concert is free of admissions. Space is limited, drop in.

Concerts are presented on the occasion of the 600th anniversary of Poland-Turkey diplomatic relations.

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.
