about

(Based on Adam Baruch review):
This is the fourth album by Polish ensemble Tatvamasi, which undoubtedly is one of the most fascinating and totally unpredictable ensembles on the local scene. The core quartet of the ensemble, led by guitarist / composer Grzegorz Lesiak, which also includes saxophonist Tomasz Piatek, bassist Lukasz Downar and drummer Krzysztof Redas, is expanded by a string trio: violinists Anna Witkowska and Michal Ostrowski and cellist Malgorzata Pietron. Legendary musician / producer and Obuh label owner Wojcek Czern is also featured on electronics. The album presents six original compositions, all composed by Lesiak. The music is, as usual, quite beyond classification. The addition of the strings and electronics expends the usual ingredients, such as Jazz and Rock, to include also contemporary Classical, Folklore and Ambient elements. This time the Free Improvisation
parts are much more dominant and the music is more avant-garde oriented in comparison to their earlier recordings, with the distinct Rocky guitar element almost completely gone. As already stated, the music of Tatvamasi is completely unpredictable and every track brigs entirely different sounds and emotions. Such diversity has of course its advantages and is very interesting intellectually, but on the other hand lacks certain focus and coherency and is very difficult for "conventional" listeners. In some respects this lack of stability and jumpiness is somehow reminiscent of Frank Zappa´s approach, which of course is commendable, but might create a barrier between the music and the audiences.
