Jerzy Mączyński, Polish saxophonist and composer, presents Jerry & The Pelican System Virtual Tour in concert at CK Zamek in Poznan, Poland - a culmination of an online project series which involved artists from around the world. This is a recording made available for the EFG London Jazz Festival. Jerzy Mączyński is a Polish saxophonist and composer and the founder of the band and a project “Jerry & The Pelican System” – an alternative musical concept that is taking by storm not only Polish, but also the international scene of instrumental music. His debut album was released last year in the prestigious Polish Jazz series.
His latest project ‘Jerry & The Pelican System - Virtual Tour' is a response to the demand for a virtual cultural offer in the age of coronavirus pandemic.
The project is continuation of an idea to create a dialog with artists from different musical traditions from around the world (eg India, Peru, Nepal, Iran, USA and Slowenia) and an attempt in creating a space in search of formal and audiovisual experiments with various musicians to establish new ways of communication and online collaboration. As part of the project a series of 7 mjusic episodes was created. They have been made available online.
Live concert which is a culmination of the project take place at the end of September at CK Zamek in Poznan - the venue is in a castle which was built in 1905-as a residence of the last German emperor, Wilhelm II. During the concert the artists will perform a new composition by Jerzy Mączyński, and it will include recordings of over 30 artists that took part in the previous episodes. The integral part of the project will be conversations with the artists which will be used in a video projection during the event. The series of the previous episodes can be found online on Jerzy Mączyński social channels. Full concert will be available online for a very limited time as part of EFG London Jazz festival.
