There have been two very intriguing concerts last few days I just want to mention.
First of all Jack Wright and Andrew Drury duo at Bomba (11.10). A very intriguing set, spontanous manifestations of peculiar sounds, minimal (basically one drum and objects + saxophone), surprising, slightly terrifying - kind of like a sound effect board for a horror movie. After all, how often do you see a drum played with a dustpan and some walnuts. Drury uses the drum as natural amplifier and to see him play is like to watch a mini theater of objects while you immagine metal things being crushed, clashed, scraped and torn apart. Wright's is a an underdground hero of free-jazz music, and he'll stay this way - he's playing challenges you with an array of unorthodox approaches and sonic experiments, risky and demanding.
The 2nd set was play in quartet with Krakow musicians - Michal Dymny (prepared guitar) and Aleksander Papierz (alto) and it was dense and finely balanced group improvisation.
Jack Wright - alto, soprano sax
Andrew Drury - drum and objects ; drums (2nd set)
Michal Dymny - guitar, objects (2nd set)
Aleksander Papierz - alto sax (2nd set)
