Sangoplasmo tour @ Lovekrove & Radar Gallery, Krakow, reviewed.

Sangoplasmo. Re(mo)tromania. by Hannah Devereux

Kraków was the first stop on a lengthy tour under the Sangoplasmo tour banner: “A month on the train, daily”, confided the slightly-overwhelmed Piotr Kurek, who I spoke to prior to his performance. Both he and Lutto Lento, fellow traveller and Sangoplasmo label owner, are gaining momentum after an already-fertile period. Kurek’s latest release, the inventive Edena, was very well received, while Lento – a former post-industrial prankster turned established tape underground curator – enjoyed a positive reception for Duch Gór, his first cassette under this moniker.

Piotr Kurek’s ‘Edena’ reviewed.

Piotr Kurek. Archives & Anachronisms.
24 December 2012

When it comes to his concept of time and eclecticism, Piotr Kurek is all over the place. As a composer and multi-instrumentalist with a penchant for vintage sound equipment, as well as the practical sense to know where their limitations are, his musical compositions –part melodic narrative, part sound collage –distil a sense of nostalgia into a romance for the present. Using a Moebius comic he had never seen (Le Monde d’Edena) and an instrument he would never have (a Mellotron) as a conceptual starting point, the Warsaw-based, Polish artist presents Edena, out on Wroclaw label Sangoplasmo.
