Stefan Wesolowki is a young Polish composer born in 1985. He first studied music in his home country at the Gdansk academy then at the academy in Villecroze, France. At just 30 years old, he has already had a fine career with several albums, collaboration projects, contributions and prizes to his credit. His work has been released by many labels including Gusstaff, Ghostly International, Miasmah, Important and today Ici d'ailleurs via the Mind Travels Serie collection (Geins't Naït & L. Petitgand, Aidan Baker, Manyfingers etc.). His music has also been used in several films and theatre plays. In 2014, he signed a publishing deal with Mute Song Publishing (Nick Cave, Ben Frost, Swans, etc...). This record is the reissue of his first album, Kompleta, which was composed in 2006 and released on Gusstaff Records in 2008. Given that he was only 21 at the time, a record which was considered a first attempt now seems something of a master work. It portrays a universe deeply influenced by sacred music and offers clear, direct compositions and liturgical chants which are powerful vectors for emotion. These songs are interpreted by Stefan Wesolowski himself accompanied by Maja Sieminska and their work fits together wonderfully. The record also marks the beginning of a beautiful friendship with the composer Michal Jacaszek who did the electronic arrangements. This worked so well that they have collaborated on several other projects since. A tangible spirituality emanates from these 9 tracks, providing a contemplative, introspective experience for listeners.Kompleta is mainly based on strings (violins, viola, cello) but also manages to distance itself from traditional compositional methods by including subtle electronic touches to help anchor the work in a resolutely progressive dynamic. It is also interesting to note how Wesolowski decides not to choose between the spheres of heritage and modernity - on the contrary he seeks a balance between the two without ever deforming or betraying his sources of inspiration. In around 30 minutes, Stefan Wesolowski marks the start of a remarkable career.The Mind Travels Serie is under the spell of this record and happy to be able tooffer Kompleta a new lease of life, fittingly illustrated by a fine new serie ofphotographs by Françis Meslet. The album has been re-mastered and will bereleased on CD and for the first time as a vinyl LP. It is a record for all lovers ofModern-classical and contemporary music looking for new sounds to go with theiralbums by Greg Haines, Arvo Pärt, Nils Frahm, Steve Reich, Hildur Gudnadottir, AWinged Victory For The Sullen, Jóhann Jóhannsson... For other listeners, it is anideal gateway to these universes where elegance and intensity are key.
