In recent years, one of the most frequently repeated names on the Polish electronic music scene is Kuba Tracz, known as Bass Astral. He is described as an artist who redefines electronic sounds, giving them the subtlety of instrumental music. At the Philharmonic in Szczecin, together with the musicians of the Symphony Orchestra, he will present the premiere music material prepared for the Soundlab concert series – the Philharmonic Laboratory of Electronic Music.
The last years in the artist's life have been, above all, reigning on the Polish music scene together with the vocalist Igor Walaszek (the band Bass Astral x Igo, apart from joint albums, also has hundreds of concerts and great fans' recognition).
In 2021, the team decided to end their joint artistic journey. There comes the point when you reach a crossroads, and you have to decide which way you want to go. So we made a joint decision to disband Bass Astral x Igo. At the same time, we hope that new paths will lead us into the unknown, and we look forward to what fate will bring – the artists write in their statement.
It turns out that the creators did not have to wait long for new paths of artistic development. Kuba Tracz already, in the summer of 2021, announced his solo album entitled "Techno do Miłość". He invited his friends to record it, including the pianist Hania Rani, who was active in the field of neoclassical composition. I come from the village of Brzeźnica. In adolescence, I ran away from it and wanted to cut myself off because it seemed closed to me. I experienced city life, developed myself as a musician, and met all my musical friends and companions. (…) However, after many years in the city, I returned to rural life and recorded this album – says Kuba Tracz.
The collaboration of Bass Astral with the musicians of the Szczecin Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra is another step in the artistic activity of the musician, who, agreeing with the idea of the Soundlab series concerts, in his work focuses on the ability to listen and enjoy the richness of the world of sounds.
