The world-renowned German independent label Denovali return with the first releases in 2019 coming at the end of March. “Supersonic Moth”, the wonderful new album by Kuba Kapsa, who is a Polish pianist and composer – also known as the leader of the avant-jazz combo Contemporary Noise Sextet. Beyond that he’s a renowned composer for film and theater plays.

“Supersonic Moth” is basically written for upright piano played through felt, programmed electronic sounds and processed piano recordings in order to create in-depth atmospheres and sonic landscapes with a wide range of stimulating moods.

Supersonic Moth” is the musical realization of a specific trait in human existence, dealing with the disruptive contradiction of desiring something that might break one down or even kill. Everything that might be tempting. Everything that can push you down. And you know it. But you can’t resist it.” —Kuba Kapsa

We are delighted to premiere the album’s utterly spellbinding penultimate track ‘Reliever’, built upon hypnotic electronic soundscapes interwoven with sublime piano patterns. The towering crescendo serves one of the highlights of Kapsa’s latest master-work, creating a highly emotive modern classical exploration.

 

 

 

‘Supersonic Moth’ is out on Denovali Records on 29th March 2019.
