  • {Record Labels}
    • The independent music scene is one of the most fascinating artistic, economic, and cultural phenomena in Polish contemporary art. Independent record labels and the artists associated with them form distinct visions of musical experiments from the bottom-up, and for the most part, without institutional support. This dynamically developing marvel is a counter-proposal to institutionalized culture and the commercial music market. The {Record Labels} project means to show and spread the creative phenomena and attitudes reflecting the evolution and the state of Poland's independent scene. It is a kind of confrontation between tradition and modernity, presenting a broad spectrum of musical genres, as well as practices and performance techniques.
  • Bocian Records
    • An independent record label focused on experimental music and sound art, founded in 2009. They have released dozens of albums on vinyl, with usually no more than 300 copies in circulation. Amongst the most notable, Konrad Smoleński's record can be found. His project, "Everything Was Forever, Until It Was No More," is a multi-elemental sound installation referring to a mechanical, futuristic vision of the world. The work was presented at the 55th Venice Biennale (2013), and then re-adapted to fit the needs of its release and was published by Bocian in 2015. On April 8th, another album will be released with the sound documentation of the Venice Biennale "Spectral Arrows," from Australian artist Marco Fusinato. The labels music catalog includes world-renowned artists of contemporary music, as well as Polish artists, such as Konrad Smoleński, Robert Piotrowicz, Anna Zaradny, Wojciech Bąkowski / Niwea, and others. Album sleeves have been designed by such artists as Kama Sokolnicka, Wojciech Bąkowski, Anna Zaradny, Igor Omulecki, Marco Fusinato, David Gaskhart, and Tomasz Mirt. The label has showcased during events in New York (Issue Project Room / Unsound Festival) and in Mexico. The presentation in Warsaw is another showcase of this publication.

    • Joachim Nordwall
      • Born in 1975 in south east Sweden, is a key character in the Swedish electronic music scene. Since the late 1980's, he has recorded sometimes demanding but often rewarding music, using mainly analogue equipment. Heavily influenced by 60's minimalism, folk rituals and old school acid and techno, his solo works are often based upon noise, pulse and rhythm, yet abstract and minimal. He has collaborated and performed with people like Mats Gustafsson, Mika Vainio, Kevin Drumm, Aaron Dilloway, Christine Abdelnour and Leif Elggren. As a member of Alvars Orkester he did harsh, psychodelic synth drones. With Oceans of Silver & Blood he made monolithic drones together with tam tam player Mark Wastell and as core member of The Skull Defekts he has infected the world with ritual rock and unpleasant electronics. Nordwall founded the iDEAL organisation in 1998 which is a record label (with some 150 releases out), concert foundation and festival platform.
