Grzegorz Bojanek

Grzegorz Bojanek (1975), also known as Eta Carinae, is the founder of the net label: www.etalabel.com. Since 2007 he has been the artistic producer of Warsaw Electronic Festival. As an artist he consequently introduces field recordings and electroacoustic sounds into his compositions which are the combination of the modern melodics ambient and sometimes noise. He cooperated with many artists from USA, Canada and China. Grzegorz is the co-founder of ChoP project where he concentrates on multicultural collaboration between China and Poland. Together with Zen Lu, Grzegorz collaborated with British film direcotr Isaac Julien on his latest project “Better Life” (“Ten Thousand Waves”) – starring Maggie Cheung. Among others the film was shown during the 67th Venice Film Festival 2010 and 8th Shanghai Biennale, where Grzegorz and Zen played live soundtrack during the grand opening. In 2011 Grzegorz took part in the Shanghai Electronic Music Week and the ChoP China Tour. His collaboration with Piotr Michałowski was published by a New York label Ohm Resistance. The last album recorded by Grzegorz Bojanek entitled “Warm Winter Music” was published by a US based label Twin Springs Tapes on a cassette (and it is soon to be published on vinyl). Grzegorz is currently working with Michel Banabila, Machinefabriek, Yuko Parris, all n4tural, Radboud Mens in a group called Cloud Ensemble (get the vinyl EP by Cloud Ensemble).
