[NEW SIGNING] Presenting Jacaszek's 'Glimmer'

November 14, 2011

For the past decade or so, Jacaszek has been exploring a new, resolutely modern chapter in Eastern Europe’s long, storied love affair with classical music. Jacaszek’s work, first appearing on Ghostly with his contribution to the SMM: Context compilation earier this year, is a melange of classical instrumentation—harpsichords, woodwinds, strings—and blurring, rubbed-down electronic textures, all of which makes listening an intensely cathartic, exploratory experience.

His latest album, Glimmer, is marked by a noticeable tug between melancholy and beauty, like it’s hovering in some gaseous grey area between both, at once both insular and extroverted. Glimmer, is available December 6th.
