We pay homage to one of the most important and influential experimental musicians and composers of our time: Zbigniew Karkowski.
Karkowski strongly believed that geographical, political and social exile is a necessary condition for true and honest creation. He was not interested in the traditional definition of music, in his opinion, all musical theory and systems as cultural concepts must be destroyed. In his latest work, his main concern was to realize drama with sound – electronic and acoustic walls with the architectures of ruins transcribed in the scores.
The documentary film “Fxxk You: Fxxking Noise in China Now” comprised of 100 minutes of electronic noise music and harsh speeches: a road movie between Beijing and Shanghai featuring Torturing Nurse, Wang Changcun, Wang Fan, Li Jian Hung, Dickson Dee, the poet Sun Meng Jin and Zbigniew Karkowski as radical red line.
The after-screening live concert will feature performance by Dickson Dee, ZenLu, e:ch and Sin:Ned, who are both friends and long time collaborators of Karkowski.
