KATOLUB ORCHESTRA: Lód 9
Sunday, 9 July | 18:45-20:15
Ordered chaos, liberated sound. Lód 9 crosses all borders of imagination. It’s a hit, avant-garde trip accompanied by electronica, the French horn and the violin. It’s unpredictability, energy, craziness. It’s the music for the day after the end of the world. Michał Zdrzałek and Maciej Klich have known each other since childhood, they started playing together during their undergraduate days at the Music Academy in Cracow.
For East of Culture –Different Sounds that this year is part of the celebrations of the 700th anniversary of granting city rights to Lublin we have produced a special musical project KATOLUB Orchestra that gathers together musicians from two unique, very music-oriented cities: Lublin and Katowice.
Lublin is celebrating its 700th birthday, whereas barely two years ago, Katowice celebrated its 150th anniversary. It is also then that Katowice joined UNESCO’s prestigious network of Creative Cities as the City of Music. Two Jubilees of this significance have created a need for a joint project. For the collaboration, we invited musicians who represent different genres. Lublin is represented by the folk band Čači Vorba, whereas Katowice brings in the combined forces of the avantgarde bands Lód 9, Hengelo and Pigeon Break. This meeting and musical dialogue has resulted in new material that will debut at the end of the festival on 9 July at the Lublin Castle’s courtyard
