EASTERN WAVES ON TOUR is Supported by a grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants and co-financed by the Polish funds

Over the last five years Bôłt Records became a leading label in Polish experimental music. The focus on the rich yet unexplored tradition of Polish avant-garde music together with insights into the new scene proved fruitful. Among the label’s main projects is “Polish Radio Experimental Studio”, series of albums combining re-mastered and de-noised archival recordings from the Studio and its new re-interpretations by world famous musicians such as zeitkratzer, John Tilbury, Thomas Lehn, Lionel Marchetti and many others.

Now, in the framework of EASTERN WAVES project organized by Foundation 4.99, the young generation of polish experimentalists, Mirt and Sultan Hagavik as well as the Norwegian voice virtuoso Maja S.K. Ratkje join in to shed the new light on the history of Polish and Norwegian cooperation within boundaries of electronic music.

Idris Ackamoor & The Pyramids: Music is the Healing Force of the Universe Community

This workshop gives you the chance to learn from some of the last true masters from the heydays of “cosmic” jazz: Led by the restless Idris Ackamoor a bunch of pupils of free jazz legend Cecil Taylor at Ohio’s Antioch College used a student grant to escape the US to travel to europe and then all over Africa as early as 1972, playing and recording with local musicians wherever possible. Back in the US, The Pyramids incorporated their African experience into a music which is as unique as visionary, releasing three albums in private press before disbanding in 1977. Almost thirty years later the musicians regrouped, encouraged by the fact that new audiences and a new generation of especially electronic music producers had enthusiastically embraced their “old” music – The Pyramids have been cited as a major influence and sampled by luminaries like Flying Lotus, Caribou, Gilles Peterson and Bonobo.
