Tomasz Bednarczyk
Summer Feelings

[Room40, www.room40.org]

  Though he's getting some considerable accolades, many of which compare his work to that of Budd and Eno, Polish audio sculptor Tomasz Bednarczyk is a lot more than just ambient landscapes. His "Summer Feelings" release on Australian Room40 imprint is a fine example of austere and quiet music. It's underplayed. It's hushed but it's never selfless nor can it be called self-absorbed. Piano permeates every pore of this all too brief album. While processed to the max, it's exhumed in a layer of crackly, wood tapping atmospherics. Natural is about the only conclusive way I can use to describe what Bednarczyk achieves on his album. Recalling some of the better releases of Taylor Deupree, the album moves in a softly caressing manner. While exhibiting a tendency for austere and hushed tones, the sounds are absolutely stark and delicately mesmerizing. One of the must-have releases of the year so far.
