Olbrzym & Kurdupel are a jazz band from Poland. They play freely improvised music. The duo was created in spring 2007 in Gdynia. The music they play is simple, uninfluenced improvisation. The composing is identical to the first and only performance of that piece and it is unique. The priority of OiK is giving concerts and the publishing is only the documentary recording of all the stages of their creative work.
Noisezone is a new avantgarde jazz project that came to life in Basel, Switzerland. Trio of musicans: Sebastian Smolyn, harnessing a storm of sounds coming from his E-Trombone, his brother Artur, generating vast range of convulsive, electronic noise attacks and Daniel Buess, empowering both with thrilling rythms of his percussion.
We have the pleasure of informing all free jazz fans that we have created the “Kraków Jazz Autumn Reverb” to help them “hold out” until the autumn. During this cycle, we will be organising free jazz concerts alluding to the Festival’s ideals. We wish to invite musicians to perform on our alchemical stage who have already appeared at Kraków Jazz Autumn as well as completely fresh formations for whom experimentation and improvisation within free jazz, widely conceived, are an important form of expression.
