Jacaszek – November Late (Spotify)

Jacaszek – November Late
(Spotify)

The output of Polish composer/sound stretcher Jacaszek feels cinematic by nature; densely detailed electroacoustic textures evoked dimly-lit worlds within themselves, vignettes of the imagination. Jacaszek’s practice — an amalgamation of ambient, classical, and musique concrete — deploys field recordings, acoustic samples, poetry, and baroque instrumentation to paint pictures, oftentimes melancholic, nostalgic, tragic.

On his new track “November Late” out today 3/5, Michael Jacaszek fuses his deft touch & gentle atmospherics into an unforgettable piece that is more uplifting than stark. It’s from ‘Music For Film’, out March 27th on Ghostly International.

Nagamag:
What are the genres that describe better your music style?

Akkor:
Akkor is experimental/minimal electronica with influences from progressive, ambient and contemporary classical music. My main tools of composition are piano, synthesizers, found noises and field recordings.


Nagamag:
Few words about your musical background and career?

Akkor:
I hold a masters degree in Sonic Arts from Istanbul Technical University's Center for Advanced Studies in Music. I was a participant of the Red Bull Music Academy 2018, Berlin. As someone who has roots from being a progressive rock keyboardist, I’ve always been interested in sound design and composition. In around 2018, I got concentrated on surround audio and creating audiovisual performances.


Nagamag:
Do you remember your first connection of love to music that was the right impact to be a music artist now?

Akkor:
In around 2003, when I learned about how Pink Floyd’s Another Brick in the Wall triggered country-wide protests of racial inequities in South Africa, I realized how big being creative and productive can affect the world and became passionate about it.


Nagamag:
You mentioned audiovisual performances, can you clarify this a bit?

Akkor:
I’m very excited about creating surround audio and composing for lighting systems to create sound and light performances that are in communication. Besides my solo works, I collaborate with artists from various disciplines to design site specific live stages for Akkor. Multi-channel audio surrounds the audience, I focus on this phenomenon and try to enrich it with the visual aspect of my live performances. I also collaborate to create artistic productions such as installations and video artworks.


Nagamag:
Music has no borders and many of us we may listen to more genres that we are mainly involved. So share with Nagamag which track comes first in your mind from music but is NOT similar to your genre?

Akkor:
King Crimson "Starless" (Red album)


Nagamag:
Of Course Nagamag would love to listen also which track from a similar artist you admire?

Akkor:
