Avtomat is a man with way too many interests – an openly queer composer, producer, DJ and vocalist, graphic designer, typographer and 3D illustrator, proud member of the Oramics and Ciężki Brokat crews, co-creator of Radio Kapitał, Polish ambassador for Keychange. His own music has morphed several times throughout the last 10 years – from purely synthetic timbres and polyphonic singing with Pleśni to a perplexing fusion of rhythmically and sonically jagged compositions, bass-heavy club tracks on his latest EP, “Gusła (Human Rites)”. He presented his music during numerous festivals (Unsound, Tauron Nowa Muzyka, Audioriver, Spring Break, CoCArt, Tofifest) and an assortment of clubs. He composed and created impromptu live music for interactive theatre plays: Method of National Constellations and quadraphonic sound for Jawić się. In the club his thirteen-year experience of supporting queer, anti-fascist and underground scene results in an almost annoyingly disparate selection of the most forward-thinking sound offered by today’s scene. In his series of DJ-sets and club nights he blends unusual rhythmic patterns kicked up a notch with his improvised vocals.
