Podtitul nebo bližší informace o akci: Hybridní a neformální přednáška vedená Piotrem Tkaczem a volná DJ sestava zaměřená na podobnosti a rozdílnosti mezi českou a polskou soudobou hudbou. Místo lineární chronologie bude mnoho časových cest uskutečněno na trati mezi oběma zeměmi a díky tomu se objeví mnoho zajímavých spojení mezi kompozicemi, které původně neměly mít nic společného.

Subtitle or more detailed info about the happening:
A lecture by Piotr Tkacz about the contemporary music scene in Czech Republic and its relationships with Poland. The lecture will be followed by a special DJ set in which Karolina Karnacewicz will connect artists from both countries.
Altough Czech Republic is Poland’s neighbour we here now very little about its music. If we have any knowledge it’s rather about long-standing bands like The Platstic People of the Universe and we are not conscious about activities of younger Czech musicians.
It’s also strange that despite geographical proximity artists from those countries collaborate rarely.
In the lecture such ventures, as works of Martin Blažíček and Krzysztof Topolski, Lukáš Jiřička and Robert Piotrowicz, Mikoláš Chadima and Zenial will be presented. Other important contemporary musicians and venues, such as Školská 28, will be also mentioned.
The DJ set by Karolina Karnacewicz is especially prepared in such a way as to conduct meetings between artists which hadn’t and/or wouldn’t meet otherwise. Thanks to that we will cross boundaries not only in the geographical but also stylistic sense and also act against linear flow of time.
Piotr Tkacz (b. 1985 in Poznan, PL) – improviser, organiser, DJ. His articles were published in „Czas kultury“, „Glissando“, „2+3D“, „Dwutygodnik/Biweekly“, „Fragile“.

He is a part of such music projects as Kurort, Radioda, Revue svazu českých architektů, Stupor, Tkacze, Lata, Sumpf and he also recorded with Alice Hui-Sheng Chang and Seiji Morimoto.
