Resina: concerts at the Planetarium

  • What: concerts
  • When: 8.10 and 9.10 at 8 p.m.
  • Where: Planetarium
  • The concert tickets are available at bilety.kopernik.org.pl

Resina, or rather Karolina Rec, is one of the most bright and artistically consistent personas on the Polish music scene. She merges cello with simple electronic tools (mainly a looper) and unassuming vocal parts. By looping and overlapping, she builds up the tension and drama of her compositions and live shows. Behind the scenes she is modest, but on the scene she becomes a charismatic one woman army.  

She is known as a composer, arranger, cellist, theatre and film score creator. She debuted in the British record label Fat Cat Records, positioning herself in the catalogue next to artists such as Sigur Rós, Animal Collective, Hauschka or Max Richter. Her works appeared in the Oscar nominated movie Rabbit á la Berlin and the RPG game Vampire: The Masquerade – Shadows of New York. She collaborated with Nicolas Jarr, Scott McCloud, Christina Vantzou, Maciek Cieślak, Natalia Zamilska, Natalia Fiedorczuk, Piotr Kurek, Tobiasz Biliński, Hubert Zemler, Mateusz Rychlicki, Noon.

Her first albums, Resina and Traces, published by the neoclassicist record label Fat Cat Records - 130701, gained enthusiastic reviews in The Guardian or Resident Advisor. The newest project of Resina is the album Speechless, on which the artist broadened her composing tools with a choir layer. The material recorded by Michał Kupicz and produced by Daniel Rejmer (Ben Frost, Foals), combines the voice, cello, drums and electronics, received high praise in both Polish and international music summaries of 2021. As Jędrzej Słodkowski claims in „Gazeta Wyborcza”: I don’t know how many musicians are able to combine the imagination of young Penderecki, the brutality and passion of noise-rock avant-garde, and a clairvoyance worthy of film score masters.

During Przemiany Festival we will hear pieces from all three albums. There will be two cross-sectional concerts: a solo concert (Saturday, October 8th) and a duet with the drummer Mateusz Rychlicki (Sunday, October 9th).

Accompanying Karolina Rec, Mateusz Rychlicki has been co-creating the group Kristen – an icon of the Polish noise and post-rock scene for over two decades. In the duo Kobieta z Wydm he collaborates with Błażej Król. He wanders through dub and ambient music in Dynasonic and MEF projects.

The concerts will be accompanied by visuals under our Planetarium’s dome, which are inspired by diversity, organic farming and the constant change of cities. Their author is Bartosz Wyszyński and his team (Sonia Kaźmierczak, Michał Rusnarczyk).

Patryk Zakrocki: Le Corbusier's Shower

  • What: live music act
  • When: 7.10, 9 p.m.
  • Where: level 1

Patryk Zakrocki – a musician inseparably connected with Warsaw, who has been creating a unique and current soundtrack for this city for over 25 years. Multi-instrumentalist, musical producer, composer, musical chameleon. He reaches for breakbeat, ambient, IDM, chamber music, blues, film score and modern music, improv, and sound experiments. He mixes music with visuals and spoken word.

At Przemiany Festival, Patryk Zakrocki will present himself in the surroundings of Moog synthesisers, suggesting an experience from the borderline between a concert, a radio play and a soundtrack. We will listen to Le Corbusier’s Shower compositions enriched by quotes from Le Corbusier’s manifesto and modular synthesiser sounds.
