Instinct – highly anticipated record released by highly unanticipated duo of two labels Bocian (whose repertoire stretches from freeform noise to improvised jazz) and Recognition (known for state-of-the-art modern techno sound). Four new tracks by Jacek Sienkiewicz appear both as essence and antithesis of artist’s earlier work, instead confronting listener with hardly categorisable and puzzling form. You can still manage to hear echoes of electronic music masters (from Autechre to Xenakis) in this material, but Instinct functions as an autonomous entity, or a sound event provoking questions rather than attempting to answer them. This proposal, very distinct and floating beyond today’s tendencies, will undoubtedly worry pessimists shedding their tears over end-of-all-aesthetics and music losing its magical aura. It is also quite likely to awaken a need for further exploration in all listeners open enough – and daring enough.
