“Organic Synthetics” presents a completely new face of Janicki’s sonic explorations, who enters the role of a sound sculptor and composer, abandoning his performative skills, live improvisation and percussion instruments for a synthesized generative work, which emerges from multilayered programming of the instrument’s parameters. Using the advanced control possibilities, Janicki brings to life ten live organisms, which’s sound evolves from a constant, various movement of digital parameters, illustrating the flux of matter particles, functioning within numerous natural phenomenons, observed by him in the deepest nooks and vastest spaces of Sudety mountains, explored intensly by the author during the pandemic lockdown.
