Joanna Duda Solo (PL)
Joanna Duda belongs to Poland’s latest generation within its rich, experimental jazz tradition but her piano talents are only a part of the story with her. Leveraging technology in uncanny ways, her music is digital alongside analog, acoustic alongside electronic and improvised alongside charted. The product of this crossbreeding is music that doesn’t neatly reside in any known world but in a world of its own.
Duda composes music with analogue and contemporary techniques. Plays acoustic (mostly piano) and electronic instruments (computer, workstations, beatmachines), planting and growing them into multiplied layers consist of one texture. As a follower of all-embracing art form and synthesis of arts and science, she also constructs installations. In her projects she seeks for absolute music communication and melting of personalities involved in musical narration.
