This is the second time I played “Frozen Lake” live. This time with the young trumpet player Michał Kluba.
I started working on new material called “Frozen Lake” inspired by the lake which is near the place I live. I presented it for the first time during WEF.LIVE.LAB on 23.02.2013 in Zachęta National Gallery of Art in Warsaw.
Here are some excerpts:
I decided to run a bit more today. About 12 km. Part of my route was on a frozen lake. I met some guys catching fish on ice. Nice…
On Ice – nice meeting with anglers

Last Day of 2012 in the forest
This was an amazing weekend in Poland. I decided to ride a bike because the weather was simply awesome. We usually have snow, or at least heavy rain in late October in Poland, but this weekend was unusual. About 20 degrees C all the time an no clouds! I had three major trainings, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I managed to cover the distance over 90 km! That was great!
This is how we change the environment. Clear sky, no clouds. The only one was produced by humans!
I got up early in the morning, at about 6:30 a.m. I usually cannot wait until very late Thursday, so I usually read the instructions on Friday morning. When I read the instructions for the 30th project I decided (just like probably many other artists) to use the field recording. I was lucky, because it was foggy outside and after the rain, and there was no wind. As I live in the countryside it is almost always very calm outside, especially in the morning. I just went to the garden and recorded the surroundings. Of course – the silence wasn’t pure.
First I played with the field recording in Gleetchlab 3.0 to get some nice randomness / granular effect. Than I used Ableton Live and used just 2 tracks. The whole thing starts with the track from the Gleetchlab and there is a transition to the second track where you can hear the pure field recording. The first Gleetchlab track has only 3 effects in Albeton Live, i.e. EQ Three, Ping Pong Delay and Reverb. The second, pure field recording track, has also 3 effects, i.e. EQ Eight, EQ Three and Reverb.

This time the trip wasn’t very long. 21 km only. But I managed to take a nice picture of the man fishing alone…
This time it was 35.67 km with an average speed of 20.9 km/h and the top speed of 44.8 km/h. There was one place I simply couldn’t ride because of the sand and rocks. But the rest of the journey was quite nice. I started in the sun and ended in the rain (as usual). There was one place where I could see the nice ruins of the castle.
