Reportaż (Poland) + Chris Cutler (UK) - "The Media Operation" - ALTERNATIVA FESTIVAL 08 - Nov. 25 / 20:00

16.11.2008

“The Media Operation” was created by the Polish group Reportaż from Poznan and has also brought on board the great British musician Chris Cutler. The 16th annual Alternativa Festival is organized by Unijazz.

REPORTAZ (2008) - Andrzej Karpinski, Witold Oleszak, Chris Cutler – “The Media Operation”

The basic theme is the role of media in the modern world from the point of view of a musician and from a Polish perspective. This country in the centre of Europe is according to them an object of endless sociological, political, economic and cultural experimentation and has also become a place of disinformation and falsified history.

Musically this project is influenced by a long tradition of improvisational rock as well as the newest experiments in sound technology. The band uses old analogue instruments, percussion, keyboards and electronic instruments, whose various sounds the musicians then mix together live. The lyrics are made up of excerpts from the media in musical forms, which at unexpected moments become part of the concert. The musicians, imitating radio, television and print media perform an operation on a broken photocopier... The atmosphere of the project puts the finishing touches to a specially prepared stage in light-grey blue, dominated by operating lamps hanging above the musician’s heads.
