Electrogride (S. A. Mozg, 2010)

Rafał Gorzycki is moving force behind few of most interesting bands playing avantgarde jazz in Poland. Be it Ecstasy Project ('Reminiscence Europae'), Dziki Jazz or Sing Sing Penelope ('Stirli People In Jazzga') he always goes along the way of what is open-minded and free in modern jazz. No different is 'Electrogride" where he united forces with Norwegian DJ Strangefruit to saturate his language with electronically generated sounds. With this album Gorzycki directed his music towards minimalism until now absent on his albums.  Although on his previous releases rhythm and noise always played main role here silence and trance take over. One must be prepared for patient and thoughtful rehearsal to appreciate elegant if somewhat monotonic (at moments) features of this music.
