Gosia Zagajewska


In my musical activities, I focus primarily on exploring the instrumental potential of the human voice, which is organic, primordial and at the same time offers unlimited possibilities for creating sounds and impacting the emotional state of the audience. I am most interested in spontaneous actions, based on creative sound interpretation of given spaces in the vein of free improvisation. I try to refer to the creative experiments of the 1960s and 1970s in a new and original way. I also refer to the traditional vocal techniques rooted in sacred music or folk music in the broadest sense. I constantly work on developing extended vocal techniques. As a vocalist-performer, I often move around the space in which I work, as movement allows an organic, analogue application of the multi-channel sound effect. For the past few years I have also been experimenting with text, which I sing to previously composed melodies or those derived from the traditional repertoire, as well as improvised ones.
