We’re just a few days away from the release of Music For Film, the new album from Polish contemporary classical composer Michal Jacaszek. For nearly two decades, Jacaszek has composed and contributed to numerous albums and projects, including film music. The forthcoming Music For Film is a collection of tracks spanning a decade and varied films and commissions, including the 2019 documentary He Dreams of Giants, the 2008 project Golgota wrocławska and Rainer Sarnet’s 2017 film November.
Ahead of the album release this Friday March 27th through Ghostly International, Jacaszek has shared a fittingly gorgeous and arresting video featuring excerpts from November. Watch it below.
For over a decade now, Polish contemporary classical composer Michal Jacaszek has been a prolific artist with numerous albums and compositions under his belt. He has a new album on the way entitled KWIATY, an effort that took its roots from a 17th century English anthology of metaphysical poetry. “The poems were simple, pure and beautiful,” said Jacaszek of the book’s Robert Herrick passages. “They spoke about death, pain, longing and loneliness, but somehow these pieces were bringing hope, solace, and peace.”
Arriving on March 17th via Ghostly International, KWIATY is described as “Jacaszek’s most rhapsodic release yet” and it follows his 2011’s Glimmer, an album influenced by nostalgia, classical music and Tim Hecker.
Jacaszek had previously unveiled ‘Daffodils’ and now he’s offering a new delicate and riveting new single, ‘Soft Music’. Listen to both below.
