Biography

Michal Jacaszek talks about his music in a very self-assured way. He lists clear moods, behaviors, and feelings (nostalgia, misery, classical music, and contemporary ambient electronic artists such as Tim Hecker) that influence the way he works. This is noteworthy for two reasons—first, because the Polish artist is explaining all of this very clearly in English, and second because the ... Read more in Amazon's Jacaszek Store

Editorial Reviews

2011 release from the Polish Electro-Acoustic musician. Jacaszek has been exploring a new, resolutely modern chapter in Eastern Europe's long, storied love affair with classical music. This album is marked by a noticeable tug between melancholy and beauty, like it's hovering in some gaseous grey area between both, at once both insular and extroverted. His creations are painstakingly crafted collages of electronic textures and baroque instrumentation, harpsichords being swarmed by woolly static one minute and pulled apart by billowing wind the next. Ambient music is rarely so sonically challenging.

Ghostly's got it right. I don't know who's talking over there, but someone is definitely listening. Perhaps it's all in the numbers. Perhaps publishing experimental, ambient and modern classical genres can be a viable business option after all. Of course I'm speculating here, but if the public is listening (and buying!) this music, then why not invest in the production. In the spring of 2011, Ann Arbor based (Michigan, US) Ghostly International, known for its releases by Matthew Dear, Lusine, Solvent and Dabrye, took a stab at the eclectic branch of music with the compilation, SMM: Context, featuring appearances by this magazine's favorites, such as Goldmund, Leyland Kirby, Manual, Peter Broderick, Rafael Anton Irisarri, and the artist of this review, Jacaszek. Now, the label is back with a full length release from one of my favorite composers of cinematic, haunting and melancholic music. Listening to Glimmer is like glancing through a dusty window at a black and white film of your past. Its decade old grime smudging images out of focus, occasionally triggering a memory, the sound of an abandoned record player, a sense of living another life. The music evokes aching nostalgia for the past that never was, and deep longing for the future that will never be, until I find myself in the present, being all that I can ever be, nothing more and nothing less. With this soundtrack my story unfolds here and now, in this moment where only Jacaszek's sounds fill my being. Appearing in 2004 on the Polish small and independent "electronic post-everything" label, Gusstaff, Michal Jacaszek opened up with Lo-Fi Stories. A year later he collaborated with Milka Malzahn on Sequel (Gusstaff, 2005), and finally was introduced to the scene with his critically acclaimed 2008 album, Treny, picked up by Miasmah.Read more ›

I first listened to the music on this CD in my car on a winter morning on my way to work. I walked away saying "EH". I gave it another try later that evening after I made fish stew. I put on my headphones an let it rip. After listening to it in darkness I came away from it with an AWE. After going to bed that night I wokeup at 3:am. Not being able to fall back to sleep I got up and played the it once again with my headphones on. I stared outside my livingroom window at the bare trees watching the snowdrifts blowing in from Lake Champlain. I walked away from this listen with a WOW! Excellent CD from start to finish. I havent stopped listening to it all morning. Highly recommended.

This is an eerie piece of music. I was surprised how immersible this can be if you are in the right state of mind.
