THE LATEST ALBUM “NADA”
The latest album of Popiałkiewicz entitled “Nada” was released on November 3, 2017, with which he defended his doctoral thesis entitled “Articulation techniques of rock guitarists on the ground of jazz music”. This album is not only a powerful composition and technical virtuosity achieved by years of draconian practice. This is a rare combination of jazz idiom, rock sound and expression, and a broad approach to composition inspired by polyphony and classical music. All this strongly saturated with Slavic melody. Popiałkiewicz admits that in writing the music for this album he was inspired with the idea to create art at the highest level, with a high degree of complexity while maintaining the melodious appeal that also attracts the average listener. He drew on various achievements of the history of music while simultaneously capturing the present through its typical means of expression.
