Polish duo Wacław Zimpel (Hera, Ircha) and Kuba Ziołek (Stara Rzeka, Innercity Ensemble, Alameda Organisation, Kapital) return to the UK following their spell-binding performance at Rocket Recordings 20th Anniversary for a short run of shows following the 2017 release of their debut collaborative album 'Zimpel/Ziołek'.

'In December of 2015 I witnessed Wacław perform a solo set in Alchemia club in Kraków. After his concert we discussed the possibilities of working together on some music and not much later we met at the rehearsals, followed by first live gigs under the Zimpel/Ziołek moniker,' recalls Ziołek. 'I remember that during this time I was drifting away from my free jazz roots and wanted to incorporate some electronics that Kuba already mastered in his projects,' adds Zimpel. 'Both of us were keen on repetitive structures and this process of defining a common musical ground evolved in a very organic way,' he adds.

The tracks that make up their album are rooted in improvisation and it wasn't until Zimpel and Ziołek entered the studio that they organised the sounds into more structured forms. 'We often stopped playing when something interesting came into our view and messed with those motifs adding new layers and instruments,' explains Zimpel. 'The compositions took other forms during our concerts where the process of playing is more dynamic, based on instincts. That's also why you often are unable to see the bigger picture. I think that it's only been in the studio where we managed to take total control over our music,' he says.

Contrary to what most Zimpel fans may expect, some of duo's songs do have vocals and these come courtesy of Ziołek. 'I decided to paint some abstract pictures with the lyrics. There's no hidden meaning behind them, I just wanted to treat the melodics of words more or less the same as I do with other instruments, choosing specific syllables and matching them with words,' recalls Ziołek.
